Canadian Contact Lenses: How We Got into the Biz

Fresh Lens is located in beautiful Victoria, Canada. We’ve been supplying contact lenses in Canada and the USA for over 20 years – human years. Our goal is to bring you the leading contact lens brands in the industry at the best prices.

Back in the day, we used to process all orders by fax. Can you believe that, kids? That was when everyone’s favorite band was the Backstreet Boys (admit it. You know their lyrics). In 1995, we decided the Internet was the place to be, so we started our first online retail store. Since those first orders in the mid-90s, we’ve shipped over 150,000 contact lenses in Canada and the United States!

We want to send a special thanks to our customers who have supported us over the years. Your comments, emails, and repeat business have encouraged us to grow Fresh Lens while keeping your eyes fitted with the best and most affordable contact lenses online.

A Global Lens Company That Does Its Homework

A lot has changed in the industry since we first started but we remain committed to providing the same amazing service we always have since our days toiling over the fax machine and offering the highest quality contact lens products available. We put a lot of time and effort into keeping abreast of the latest trends and conducting extensive research into contact lens technologies, health issues surrounding the eyes and contact lenses and how our customers can protect their vision. One look at our blog and you’ll see we’re all about promoting healthy contact lens use and explaining the ins and outs of the different types of lenses. Client education is super important and we feel it’s our job as an authority in contact lenses to make sure you’re well informed too!

Buying Contact Lenses Online Without a Prescription

We know your life would be so much easier if you could randomly order contact lenses online with no Rx. We hate to break it to you, but doing that is a terrible idea and extremely dangerous to your eyes. Ill-fitting or poor-quality contact lenses can lead to dangerous infections and eye injuries and potentially leave you with vision loss.

While, yes, we require a current prescription from an eye care professional before you can order your contact lenses online from Fresh Lens, we make it as easy as possible. Simply submit your RX with your order number to If you’ve submitted it before, you’re in luck! We have it on file so there’s a need to send it again. You can just order away.
