    what information do i need to put in to order contact lenses online?
    specsavers sent me my SPH, CYL and AXIS but there are other boxes i have left empty on the order form as i don't have them - should i have been sent them? and also they don't have an option to select 5 for my AXIS so now im unsure if they sent me my contact prescription or just my normal glasses one?

    Radius, Dia, SPH, CYL and Axis should be on there.

    The radius and diameter may already be known/filled in - 8.6/14.5

    Axis goes in tens, not fives.

    I know this isn't what you're asking for, but don't do it. You need regular check ups to ensure that your eyes are getting enough oxygen and stuff behind your lenses. I ended up with corneal ulceration and I'm now banned from wearing my contacts more than a few hours a day.

    It might be cheaper buying them online than from Specsavers, but the aftercare they provide is what keeps your eyes healthy...
