How much does it cost to wear toric contact lenses? Is there a difference between wearing monthly, weekly and daily disposable contact lenses for astigmatism? What are the differences between the major brand manufacturers?

We monitor the prices of all major brand contact lenses and update the table below on a regular basis. It is showing the daily cost per eye for the most popular toric contact lenses on the market.

What is the daily cost per eye?

The daily cost per eye is a better way to compare the true cost of wearing daily, bi-weekly and monthly replaceable contact lenses. In order to calculate the daily cost per eye, we use the lowest and highest box price found from the most popular contact lens retailers and divide it by the recommended replacement schedule of the lens. For example, a daily disposable contact lens might cost $33 per box (containing 30 lenses), and as such, the daily cost per eye is $1.10. In contrast, a monthly replaceable lens might cost $60 per box (containing 6 lenses) but as the lens can be worn for 30 days, the daily cost per eye is $60 divided by 6 lenses divided by 30 days which equals $0.33. In order to keep it simple, we excluded the cost of other items, such as cleaning solutions and lens cases that are required for weekly or monthly lenses.
