free contact lens trial
No subscriptions, no stress. Simply try before you buy & see the world in a new way
Whether you’re hitting the gym or painting the town red, contact lenses can bring you more freedom and flexibility.
Fancy giving them a go? Why not try before you buy with our Free Contact Lens Assessment and Trial? With no subscriptions and no stress, we’ll help you find a lens that’s right for you.
What happens at your assessment?
Before you get started with your free trial, you’ll need to pop in for a 30-minute assessment. Don’t worry, there’ll be no trick questions.
This is a chance for one of our opticians to find out which lenses best suit your lifestyle and talk you through prices and how to care for your lenses (spoiler alert: it’s super-easy, the main thing to remember is that you need to use solution and never use tap water to clean your lenses. Your optician will explain this). They’ll even give you the lowdown on our Boots Opticians Contact Lens Rewards Plan and book you in for a post-trial appointment. Sounds good, right?
What does the free trial include?
Once your assessment is done (it’ll fly by), we’ll show you how to put in and take out your contact lenses, then get your prescription ready.
Depending on your lifestyle, you can choose from either a month's supply of selected daily reusable lenses or up to five pairs of daily disposable lenses – all for free. And remember, we’ll be with you every step of the way, so if you have any questions or problems throughout your trial, just get in touch.
Before you commit to buying them, take some time to see if contact lenses are right for you. If they are, we’ll help you choose a payment plan. Depending on which plan you go for, you could get top discounts on frames, free eye tests and free contact lens checks. How’s that for a bonus?

There are three main types of contact lenses:
