“Well, there are a few very good things here, that makes...”

Well, there are a few very good things here, that makes me give a high rate 1. I didn't see any hidden fee, everything is pretty clear 2. There's a free protection app which is a big plus too 3. I used a coupon for a 30% discount and end up with a very nice final price Just one thing I didn't like was the very long process of the purchase, but maybe there can not be any shorter version of this process, so it's fine.

“Even though you guys have a lot of questions answered...”

anonymous R.

Even though you guys have a lot of questions answered in your FAQs, it is tough to follow all those links. I feel you should have a YouTube channel with professional videos teaching how to use all the different settings, like AWS. There is plenty of information and courses on how to use AWS, which makes it so much easier to use them for big projects, unlike regular hosting service providers. Conclusion: Horrible user experience

This company processes orders asap and go above and beyond with customer service. The shipping is slow from the UK to US but they are so accommodating and willing to help. I will definitely buy from them in the future in case I need contact lenses.

I have been wearing contacts since the 1980s so have a bit of experience buying lenses! I'm really glad I found Vision Direct as not only are the prices really competitive (my optician from a well known chain actually told me I'd be better off buying online as they couldn't provide the lenses at the price Vision Direct do) but delivery is really quick too (ordered by mid-afternoon on Monday and lenses arrived Tuesday). The one time I had an issue with my lenses customer services immediately replaced the defective batch (even though I'd worn 2 trying to 'work through' the problem) with no quibbling. Good prices, quick delivery and excellent customer service - what more do you want!?

I've ordered from Visiondirect uk before and every time I get my order the following day.
This time I ordered during the cold snap and expected it to be a day or two delays but no, my contact lenses arrived the following day.
I must also thank the royal mail for their posties who delivered the order despite the weather.
