Recently I ordered a couple boxes of daily wear contact lenses from 1-800-CONTACTS. So far the process has not been very smooth: Problem 1 – all the “order codes” or “coupon codes” I tried, even the codes listed on their own site, failed to work on my order 🙁 Problem 2 – despite updating my doctor information and submitting a copy of my prescription online, they still had trouble processing my prescription 🙁 To help expedite the order I planned on re-uploading
