Contact lens wearers find themselves spending increasing amounts of money on solutions to care for their lenses. In caring for contact lenses, most contact lens patients find it difficult to find the store with the lowest prices and ultimately end up going to their local grocery store and spending more money than needed. The purpose of this study is to show how one can benefit from price-shopping for contact lens solutions. This is a comparative study done on the most widely used soft contact lens and rigid gas permeable lens solutions, and their prices in various stores in the Portland, OR metropolitan area.
