Reordering Contacts 

In order to serve you better, we have now set up an online web store for soft contact lenses.  You can access this store 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  However, please be aware that all orders are still verified by our office.  If you order something during non-business hours, the order will not get processed until the next business day (orders placed over the weekend will be verified on Tuesday). 

Please visit http://www.yourlens.com/drcoptometry to order your contacts.  If you don't see your brand listed, please call our office.

A valid prescription is necessary to fill an order.  Contact lens prescriptions expire after one year (or sooner if the doctor determines a medical reason for a shorter expiration date).  They must be regarded with the same caution you would use for prescription drugs, which include prescription expiration dates and follow-up visits with your doctor. 

Your eyes go through gradual changes in size, shape and physiological requirements (such as for oxygen) while wearing contact lenses.  These changes can affect the health of the cornea and need to be monitored every year.  The state of California and the federal government recommends contact lens prescriptions to expire after one year for these reasons.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1) My prescription has expired and I'm out of contacts; however, I can't schedule an exam right away.  Can I get an extra pair?  We can provide you with a pair of trials until your next appointment (depending on the brand).  Let us know if you need any.

2) I have a prescription from another doctor.  Can I order contacts through your office?  Yes, you can, but first we will need to see a valid prescription written by your doctor.  You can email or fax a copy to us.  You can fax it to (310) 966-9369 or email us at contactlenses@drcoptometry.com.  Make sure to leave your contact information.
