What lenses are sold in vending machines

The range of lensomats is much narrower than online stores and optics stores. As a rule, these are the most popular positions of the brand Acuvue (Johnson & Johnson): 1-Day Acuvue TrueEye (for 1 day), 1-Day Acuvue Moist (for 1 day) and Acuvue Oasys (for 2 weeks). You can also find lenses Air Optix Aqua (Alcon – Ciba Vision) (for 1 month) and less often other brands .

At the same time, the most popular positions in terms of optical power (diopters) are filled into the machines. If you need lenses of other brands and rarer diopters, astigmatism lenses and multifocal, you have difficult vision and need custom parameters, please contact online stores and optical shops in your city.

Please note that you can buy lenses in vending machines only if you know the parameters that correspond to your vision: these are optical power (diopters), radius of curvature (BC), diameter (DIA), with astigmatism you also need to know the parameters of the cylinders.
