Save Time and Skip the Appointment with 1-800 Contacts ExpressExam

This post is sponsored by 1-800 Contacts but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
I've been blind as a bat since the 3rd grade. I remember sitting in class one day and having such a difficult time seeing what my teacher was writing. I came home and told my Mom who almost didn't believe me since I had said I wanted glasses like my other friends at school. She made the appointment anyways and sure enough, my eye's were extremely near sighted!

I've been going to the eye doctor ever since and have gone through various glasses until high-school when I finally decided to switch over to contacts. What a game changer! I went through a few different pairs until I found the right one that really worked for me and my eyes. As I've gotten older and my time is more limited ( running my business, two kids, new home etc ) I've barely had any time to get myself to the eye doctor!
 I found the solution though to help with my busy schedule while still being able to renew my contact lens prescription! The best part is, I can do it all from the comfort of my own home and don't need to make an appointment. 1-800 Contacts is so easy to use!

First, you take a quick online vision exam from your own home on your time, get new contact lens prescription within about 1 business day and the exam is so simple to use and guides you through each step! When your exam is complete and a doctor has renewed your prescription, you can order your contacts with just a few clicks!
I actually was a little nervous because I realized my eye doctor in Atlanta had closed his practice but reaching out to customer service, they reassured me I was still able to receive my contacts, and this was at 10pm during a live chat! They are available 24/7 and extremely helpful!
My kids were extremely interested in the 'eye box' Mommy had received only a few days later and I explained to them how Mommy's eyes need a bit of help to see. My four year old thought it was fascinating when I even showed her how to put in my contacts! Hopefully she gets her eyesight from her Dad who has 20/20 vision but if she does need contacts in the future, I know that we'll be making sure we get them right to our door with 1-800 Contacts.

Thanks to 1-800 Contacts for making the process so simple, affordable and extremely easy for this busy Mom! Now with the extra time, we're able to make forts with the left over box and I'm able to spend more quality time with my kids.

  1. This seems so convenient! I don't wear contacts / glasses but my friends and parents do, so I'll make sure they know about this. :)

  2. Super convenient!! I’m due for an eye exam. I don’t wear contacts, but do wear glasses (not like I’m supposed to). But will keep this in mind. Thanks for sharing about this service.

  6. This is such a great timesaving option for contact wearers. It also reminds me I need to get my eyes checked. I think it is time I looked into getting classes or contacts.

  7. Wow, I'll definitely have to take the exam! I don't really get my eyes checked, but I do have irritation behind the pupil a lot. I should get it checked out.

  9. Ive been blind as a bat since 3rd grade too. Got contacts in grade 8, and now only wear glasses at night. Always looking for a good deal, since they can be so expensive!

  14. What?!?! You can take the vision test at home? Oh boy, my son would be excited about that...he hates the machine that blows air in your eyes.
