    By: Craig Johnson


    If you have vision issues, you know that glasses and contact lenses are an expense you can’t do without. But that doesn’t mean you have to pay top dollar to see well!

    Contact lenses are seen by some as a product that supplements eyeglasses, but that’s far from the case for many people. Millions of Americans use contacts as their primary eye wear. Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention show that the average age of the contact lens wearer in the United States is 31 years old.

    Here are some of the cheapest contact lens prices

    With contact lens use so prevalent, finding affordable pairs has become a priority. Many eye doctors make big money charging clients for eye exams and then selling them the necessary correcting eye wear — but what if you could save money?

    We’ve told you how to get cheap eyeglasses, now here are some places we’ve found that offer some of the cheapest contact lenses prices. As always, money expert Clark Howard recommends shopping around to get the best deal for your particular needs!
