Nooooo!  Why?

The manufacturer for 1 Day Acuvue, Johnson & Johnson, is discontinuing this product on December 31, 2017.  Starting June 30, orders for the product will be filled from remaining stock only while supplies last. .

The Focus Dailies product line has now been officially discontinued by its manufacturer, Alcon (formerly Ciba Vision).   Alcon will no longer be producing new Focus Dailies contact lenses.  Any Focus Dailies products still floating around are from old stock and may not have your specific prescription available.

The same goes for Frequency 55. Its manufacturer, CooperVision, is discontinuing it (officially October 2017), but has very little stock remaining. As it is, any new orders require a manufacturing time of 2-3 weeks (prior to discontinuation date).

But what do I do now?

Please note that we are not optometrists and cannot prescribe lenses for you (especially not without shining lights in your eyes and making you squint at charts!). All we can do is make recommendations. 

Johnson & Johnson has a line very similar to 1 Day Acuvue:

Alcon suggests its extremely popular Dailies Aquacomfort Plus product line as an alternative to Focus Dailies.

CooperVision has not recommended an alternative for Frequency 55.

Important!

If you were using any of the discontinued lenses above, we strongly recommend that you get a new prescription (and a contact lens fitting) from your eye doctor before ordering a different product, just to make sure they fit you perfectly.  Due to contact lens product lines using different materials and measurements, the same person can have varying prescriptions for different product lines.  (Also, different materials might irritate your eyes.)  Remember, opened contact lens boxes can no longer be returned as per our return policy. Better safe than sorry!
