Your Prescription Explained

Before you place your contact lens order you will need to know:

  • The brand name of your contact lenses i.e. Acuvue, Bausch & Lomb, Cibavision etc.
  • The prescription details for your contact lenses.

On the contact lens packaging, lens foil or your contact lens prescription will be written a series of numbers. These are your contact lens prescription numbers.

For example, on the end of the `Acuvue Trueye 1 Day` contact lenses box, you will see the following:

You will notice that there is no Right or Left listed on the box - you have to remember which power is for which eye. If you have any difficulty, you can always write a `R` or a `L` on the boxes when you get them.

Our online order forms are very sophisticated and take account of the lens parameters you must enter. In some cases you will not need to fill in all the boxes - some will be pre-filled in for you for your convenience.

If you wear lenses to correct astigmatism (toric lenses) then you will have an additional set of figures to enter when ordering lenses online.

For example, on the end of the `Soflens Toric` box, you will see the following:

You can easily see that you will need to enter, for toric lenses, additional information relating to the Cylinder Power and Axis.
