    I'm considering getting into multi-focal contacts and want to figure out the
    ongoing cost. Is buying contacts online a safe way to save money (after the
    initial fit by an OD of course)? I remember from having worn contacts
    previously that it's not just about the prescription, but also the curvature
    of the eye. Can lenses that are correct in every aspect be bought online?

  2. Buying contacts usually requires that you have a prescription which is
    always for a specific brand.

    Buying glasses usually requires a prescription but is usually not brand
    specific. One can also buy prescription glasses without a prescription
    from some sources. Most recently I purchased some pairs of glasses from for $8 USD each.
