How to save money on contact lenses

Contact lenses were the bane of my life for a while. My lovely husband, who has bad eyesight, and Keratoconus, has gone through stages with contact lenses. Sometimes he wants to wear them, and will sign up to buy monthly subscriptions through the opticians, and other times he says he can’t bear wearing them because he works 12 hour shifts and his eyes get dry. Today I want to share with you how to save money on contact lenses.

The joys of the charity shop

I’m a real fan of saving money wherever possible. I always think that a pound saved is the same as a pound earned.
