Cost of Contact Lenses in Australia.
Contact lenses are best bought from an Online supplier in Australia, or even overseas, if you are looking for the best prices.
Even better is buying from an Australian supplier who supplies direct from overseas taking the Australian Treasurer at his word, and allowing you to buy, without paying GST.
Example Prices in July 2016
Focus DAILIES 30 Pack: Manufacturer: Alcon (Ciba Vision)
Packaging: 30 lenses per box
Current Price for 3 months supply (with one supplier above) would be A$117.35. That’s about 10% cheaper than they were in 2009
This is what I posted originally in 2009
As an example for my own contact lenses, my purchases could be as follows:
Ciba Vision Focus Dailies 90 pack
Priced for 2 boxes to last 3 months for both eyes
- $288.00 Shopping centre Optician
- $176.10 The online option of a Shopping centre Optician
- $130.00 Australian Online Contact lenses supplier (including delivery) Price in 2014 is AU$54.50 per box
It is definitely worth looking around 🙂
