About These Contacts
Say Goodbye to Dry Eyes...
Proclear, a division of CooperVision, is one of the nation’s leading contact lens manufacturers. This brand offers six different styles of contacts to cover the entire array of vision correction needs. The Proclear line offers 1 Day, EP, Multifocal, Multifocal Toric, Sphere and Toric lenses.
All excluding the EP, use their patented PC technology to provide lasting comfort for over 12 hours a day.
Lenses are offered in the 1 Day disposable to keep eyes at their healthiest since lenses can build up bacteria and dirt which should be kept well clear of the eyes.
With a 1 Day disposable that problem is solved, since the lens is thrown away before the build-up can occur. EP lenses (originally referred to as Biomedics EP) are the substitute for bifocal lenses.
Now, with this cutting edge technology, contacts are an option even for bifocal wearers. This lens is not designed to combat dry eye discomfort. Multifocal lenses are the solution for those suffering from Presbyopia combined with dry eyes that would otherwise have to wear bifocals. Toric lenses are designed to correct for astigmatism.
For years if you were astigmatic the only options were hard contacts or glasses. Now the Coopervision line can correct for astigmatism and give you almost perfect vision.
Whatever your needs, there will be a suitable lens from the Proclear contact lenses family - just be sure to consult your eye doctor for a professional recommendation.
Another interesting fact about Proclear contact lenses is it is the only contact manufacturer that is authorized by the FDA to use the phrase “may provide improved comfort for contact lens wearers who experience mild discomfort or symptoms relating to dryness during lens wear,” on their packaging. The Phosphorylcholine (PC Technology) technology used to manufacture these contact lenses makes them uniquely comfortable.
This porous material allows maximum oxygen penetration to the cornea allowing your eye to blink naturally and produce a normal amount of moisture. It also draws moisture to the lens and creates an almost weightless sensation as the moisture cushions the lens.
Contact wearers everywhere have probably experienced the discomfort of dry eyes at least once. This sensation is akin to having sandpaper rubbed across your eye.
Even if you do not have dry eyes, the sensation of something resting against your cornea can be hideously uncomfortable.
These advanced lenses are a prime solution to all of these hindrances.
How Stores Were Rated
Rating the stores was challenging mainly due to the fact we graded them across many variables. Pricing was paramount as was every other facet like service, shipping and condition of goods received.
So after reviewing every store across many factors including even site navigation and ease of ordering, we graded them to make your selection a little easier. Keep in mind that under some products, the cheapest priced stores were not always rated at the top because they often had "extra charges" that drove the final pricing up as well as the ordering process not being as good as another's.
All of the companies we rated are legitimate, are authorized to carry these lenses and have overall excellent online reputations. We found three stores namely: Lens.com, JustLenses.com and 1-800-GET-LENS have identical prices when it comes to the entire Proclear product line. Discountcontactlenses.com and Lensmart.com were priced a little higher overall but they did have a few products where pricing and/or availability was better than the others.
It's always a smart idea to check all of the stores before you buy. Even though our pricing charts are very accurate and regularly updated, sometimes stores may run one-day/spur of the moment promotions that may not immediately reflect here.
We found purchasing a 12-month supply gave the maximum bang for your buck then lower quantities. Not only do you need to re-order less frequently, but you also save extra money on shipping and get a better rate per box than if you were to buy a smaller supply.
There's no current rebate with these contacts however, we do have great money saving coupons and discount codes you should take advantage of. All you need to do is enter the code at checkout to save even more! The price will automatically adjust after you input the special codes.
