“Decent prices, fast delivery”

Written on: 19/07/2013

Returning again and again, as this web shop offers a reliable service. Every time I placed an order, regardless of where in Europe I want it sent, delivery has been prompt and prices fair. Some highlights compared to other shops is that you can buy DHL next day delivery within EU, a live chat service and a great selection of eye care products so you can get eye drops and solution cheaply with your lenses. The reorder reminder service via email or SMS is also helpful to remember stocking up on… Read Full Review

“Not delivered on time”

Written on: 30/03/2013

I ordered from this company on a tight deadline as I was set to go on holiday. They promised a two day delivery, however failed to mention that this was subject to stock. So I ordered, and sure enough a 3 delay, and the post was late. All in all, over a week to get the lenses and a ruined holiday. Very poor, shop somewhere else… Read Full Review

“fast service/poor customer service”

Written on: 04/12/2012 by migoula (1 review written)

I've been ordering my contacts for more than a year by vision direct. Always fast service with no problems. I've ordered specifically the following Soflens 59 Contact Lenses which are advertised on the web as monthly disposals. After 2-3 weeks my eyes were very irritating. So, I had a search and also an advice from my optician and I found out that the box (light blue) is actually a 2 weeks one. The same excact box in dark blue is the monthly one. I spoke online with direct vision's customer… Read Full Review

Guest's Response to mickym59's Review

Written on: 16/03/2012

Oh my goodness! I have had the same happen to me.I too ordered lenses and they sent the wrong prescription, which i returned and they responded by saying that i had opened the box which i had to do to see the lenses which were unopened by me as it wasnt what i had ordered.They have refused a refund or exchange, and are not responding to any coreespondence from me. Its a rip off. avoid them at all costs!!!!

“Vision Direct's prices are very reasonable, especially...”

Written on: 05/11/2010

Vision Direct's prices are very reasonable, especially for buying bulks. A con is that the search field could be made better, I had to click myself through the site to find returns policy, conditions and non-product related stuff. All product information was easy to find by reading on the product info page. The site is not beautiful, but it's fast and fairly straightforward navigation-wise. There is a "news" section with a Twitter link which was a great surprise.

What made me return except… Read Full Review

Absolute waste of money. I ordered the daysoft lenses only to find they actually hurt my eyes, not to mention that on the daysoft website they were sold for only a fraction of the price. What a rip off. Avoid… Read Full Review

“After purchasing my contact lenses from...”

Written on: 15/08/2009

After purchasing my contact lenses from, I received an email from them saying they are not in stock, so I called them and the customer service man was extremely helpful - he said my order was in stock and the email I received was a system error. He said my order would be posted that day. True to his word, I received my order 2 days after placing it, (even though I paid for the cheapest postage)!
The site is very easy to use and navigate, has lots of choice, as well as… Read Full Review
