Buying contact lenses

Choose one of three easy ways to pay for
your contact lenses and enjoy some amazing benefits

Three ways to pay

We want to make having contact lenses as easy and rewarding as possible. That's why there are three ways to pay for your contact lenses at Boots Opticians. All you have to do is choose which suits you best.

Our three options are:

  • Contact Lens Reward Scheme, pay monthly by direct debit and enjoy great benefits
  • Contact Lens Care Plan, pay for your contact lenses as you need them, plus an annual fee of £50 and enjoy great benefits
  • Contact Lenses To Go, pay for your contact lenses as you need them

Contact lens prices vary depending on your needs and prescription. Your optometrist will recommend the best ones for you.

Benefits and discounts

Depending on which pay plan you go for, you could get inclusive eye tests and contact lens checks. You could also get great discounts on your glasses, as well as prescription and non-prescription sunglasses. Whichever pay plan you choose, you'll enjoy some brilliant benefits and we'll look after your eyes too.

Contact lens reward scheme terms and conditions

What is Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme?

Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme is a Direct Debit scheme, which provides a convenient way to spread the cost of wearing contact lenses. Additionally, and depending on your contact lens type, solutions can be included in your plan. Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme is not a credit agreement, it's a payment plan which allows you to pay in advance for each order. You will be required to pay the first three months' payments upfront when you join Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme. Your bank account will then be debited each month following sign up. Your contact lenses will be ordered automatically every three months, and you'll make three payments for each order.

How long will my agreement last?

Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme does not have a minimum agreement term and can be cancelled at any time, all we ask is that you give us 28 days' notice of your wish to cancel and we'll cancel your plan and refund any advance payments directly into your bank account. We reserve the right to change the terms of your Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme agreement giving you three months' notice.

How much will I pay?

All payments you make (including your initial payment and subsequent monthly Direct Debits) are made up of (i) a charge for professional dispensing services including check-ups and (ii) a charge for goods, inclusive of postage and packaging. Of your total payment 50% is for dispensing services and 50% is for goods.

All prices are subject to review, and any changes to your Direct Debit will be detailed, via a letter, with at least five weeks' notice.

What happens if a mistake is made with my payment?

If Boots Opticians or your bank or building society makes a mistake with your monthly Direct Debit payment, an immediate refund can be requested under the terms of the Direct Debit Guarantee by contacting your bank or building society directly. Please also contact the Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme on 0345 603 2020, calls are charged at local rate, or email contactlenses@boots-opticians.co.uk.

What happens if I miss a payment?

If, for any reason, your bank or building society rejects our request for your monthly Direct Debit payment, then we will attempt to collect the payment on your next scheduled payment date. Please be aware we are unable to send your contact lenses until you have paid the full balance of your delivery and any missed payments could lead to your delivery schedule being altered. We will contact you to arrange payment of any outstanding monies and can realign your delivery schedule if required. If we cannot collect your payments for three consecutive months then your contact lens reward scheme will be automatically cancelled.

How can I change the Boots Opticians I go to?

If you move house just pop into your new local Boots Opticians practice and let them know you have moved to the area. Your Boots Opticians practice will arrange to transfer your Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme and patient records. In the majority of cases there will be no requirement for you to sign a new Direct Debit Instruction.

What happens if I have a change to my contact lenses?

If you need a new lens type or your prescription changes during the term of your Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme membership we can arrange for your new lenses to be transferred to your account. You will see a payment adjustment on your next payment date following your lens type change.

What happens about solutions on my plan?

If you need contact lens solution for your lens type, your optician can include these in your monthly payments. If you have selected store pick up for your lenses, every three months a solution pack will be available for you to collect in store. If you have selected home delivery both your lenses and solutions will be delivered to your home address.

How do I tell you about a change to my personal details?

Please notify your local Boots Opticians practice (the practice where you attend your contact lens appointments), email contactlenses@boots-opticians.co.uk or you can write to: Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme, Administration Office, 225 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 4GZ, quoting your membership number. If you wish to change your bank or building society details or Direct Debit payment date, please contact your local Boots Opticians practice or you can email contactlenses@boots-opticians.co.uk.

Can I collect Boots Advantage Card points?
