The Big 4 Contact Lens Companies &

Online Contact Lens Price Comparison

Deliver Contacts uses four major companies for their contact lens distribution. These manufacturers include Johnson & Johnson (Acuvue), Alcon, Bausch & Lomb, and Coopervision. Each of them exceed expectations on contact lens design and development, and each distributes high quality contact lens products. Which brand is right for you should be determined between you and your qualified eyecare provider. Quite often, you will find that an eyecare provider has a brand preference based on their experience with their specific company in their particular location. The more a doctor develops familiarity and success within their practice with a certain brand or lens design, the more expertise they will have with it, and the more apt they are to choose that design for their patients if the conditions are right. When the eyecare professional realizes that their preferred type of lens is not working for that patient’s specific needs, then they will move to another design that will work better (and that next lens of choice will most likely remain within these four manufacturers). 

Almost all eyecare providers utilize these four contact lens companies as demonstrated by the overwhelming majority of contact lens sales. There are other companies that sell contact lenses as well, but not nearly to the extent as Johnson & Johnson, Alcon, Bausch & Lomb and Coopervision. You may wonder which one contact lens is right for you, but since each company has demonstrated long lasting years of creating the best and most trustable products in the industry, there is not likely to be a simple answer. People have variant lifestyles and different contact lens needs. Their optometrist/ophthalmologist will help them find the contact that is right for them based on both the eye care provider’s experience with these different lenses and the requirements for each person’s certain needs. For example, if you only plan on wearing a contact lens once a week, your doctor may suggest a 1-day lens design. If you wish to sleep in your contacts (though your doctor is likely to suggest wear with open eyes instead of closed eyes since oxygen transfer is better with open eyes), then your doctor will choose a contact with a higher oxygen transmission (a high dK/t value) that is FDA approved for overnight use. If you want a contact lens that is replaced more routinely, then your doctor will utilize a 1-day or a 2-week contact lens. If you want a contact lens that is thinner, one that is more sturdy, a lens with color, or UV-protection, or one that will help to read a menu, or work on a computer, or perhaps you have astigmatism, then your doctor will take these different factors into account and choose the contact that is right for you. The cool thing about each of these companies is that they all recognize each patient’s different needs, and have spent countless years of study and development striving to satisfy those needs with the highest quality products that are manufacturable to everyone.

Deliver Contacts is owned by optometrists who have worked with each of these four brands for over twenty years. They recognize that these companies are committed to the optical industry and that they are each sponsors and advocates of quality eye care. Today, the field of eye care is being bombarded with other companies who apparently place profit over eye care and try to bypass health standards regulations for selfish gain. Johnson & Johnson (Acuvue), Alcon, Bausch & Lomb, and Coopervision are solid companies that have stood the test of time and have not sacrificed quality for the dollar. They recognize that quality products are necessary for the common good of the people and for long term success of the business. Deliver Contacts appreciates what these manufacturers have done and continue to do, and is proud to sell their products. With the same concern for patient eye health represented by these companies, Deliver Contacts will only sell contacts with a valid prescription from an eye doctor for these products.
