How do I place an order?
You may place your custom contact lens order by phone, email, or fax:
Phone: Call 866-404-1060 to place your order.

All custom contact lens orders should include: patient name; keratometry (K) readings; manifest Rx; horizontal visible iris diameter (HVID), if available; and lens type. Multifocal contact lens orders should also specify eye dominance, pupil size in ambient or bright light, and add powers.
Practitioners may choose to design custom contact lenses using the SpecialEyes Arc Length Calculator or our Fitting Nomogram.
Let our skilled consultants design the lenses for you - just provide the information noted above, and let us do the rest!
How do I order for a new patient?
SpecialEyes offers empirical fitting of custom contact lenses based on patient keratometry (K) readings, manifest Rx, and horizontal visible iris diameter (HVID), if available. Use the SpecialEyes Arc Length Calculator or Fitting Nomogram to design the initial trial lens. We will ship the trial set of lenses to you within four business days. Once you evaluate the performance of the trial lens on the eye, you may either order the remaining year’s supply (or other quantity of your choosing), or you may order exchange/remake trial lenses to improve fit and/or vision. Please call 866-404-1060 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and our consulting team will be glad to assist you with a reorder or new patient order.
What is the exchange/remake policy?
Within the trial period, SpecialEyes will provide up to three remake or exchange lenses at no lens cost. The trial period extends 90 days from the original order date or from the most recent remake/exchange order date (if applicable).
What happens if the trial is unsuccessful or the patient cannot adapt to the new lenses?
All custom contact lens orders are covered under the SpecialEyes Guaranteed Fit Program, so there is no risk to you. If the trial is unsuccessful or the patient is unable to adapt to the lenses, we will provide full credit for the trial lens cost. Better yet, you do not need to return those lenses to us. Simply call us within 90 days of the last remake/exchange lens and let us know if the patient had an unsuccessful trial, did not adapt, or did not show back up for the fitting. We will mark the patient as unsuccessful and apply a credit to your account. It's that easy!
What is the warranty policy for SpecialEyes custom contact lenses?
SpecialEyes provides a full warranty that covers both trial and supply lenses against tears and defects. If a patient tears a lens - whether it occurs during the trial period or within month 12 of a one-year supply - just give us a call at 866-404-1060 and we will replace the torn lens at no lens cost to you.
How long does it take to receive lenses?
SpecialEyes guarantees that your lenses will arrive in office within four business days of the date you place the order.
