Sightbox Review: A Millennial Convenience for Contact Lenses

sightbox contact lens subscription


If you were not aware before, I wear glasses the majority of the time. I'm not only nearsighted ( I can't see things from far away) but I also have a little bit of astigmatism. Fortunately, I don't have to use contacts for astigmatism, unfortunately, I've always had different prescriptions powers in each eye. You know what that means, EXPENSIVE VISION!

I had terrible vision insurance before so I was searching for an alternative way to pay for my glasses and contact exam + contacts. After seeing a lot of ads for Sightbox, I figured I'd give it a try.

If you don't know what Sightbox is, they say they are "Your Contact Lens Concierge". Really, they are! All you do is sign-up and pay $39 a month. Think of it as subscription box company like Birchbox, Julep, Fabletics, etc.
