New unilateral pricing policies (UPP) ensure patients receive consistent prices on contact lenses

Three of the largest US producers of contact lenses (Alcon, Bauch & Lomb, and Vistakon (Acuvue) have put into effect new unilateral pricing policies (UPP) to ensure patients will receive the most consistent prices on contact lenses regardless of where they purchase them. These contact lens companies are now setting the minimum price per box (both doctor's offices and online retailers) can charge patients. Retailers are able to sell the boxes for higher than the manufacturers suggested retail price, but cannot sell them for less.


At Roberts Eyecare Associates, we have always been competitive with our contact lens prices. With these new unilateral pricing policies going into effect, patients can be assured that we will continue to sell contacts for the lowest allowable price per the manufacturer. There is no need to shop around since we have adopted the policy of selling contacts for the minimum suggested retail price. We are able to provide additional services and support to our patients that purchase their contacts from us. We want you to know that you can depend on Roberts Eyecare for no charge demo contact lenses.

We are happy to provide this service to you: 

  • one of your contacts tears or is defective

  • you run short of your supply prior to your next eye exam

  • in emergency situations

  • complimentary contact lens solution for annual supply purchases  

Most contact lenses we have either in stock or can order for next day availability in our office. When purchasing an annual supply, these may be shipped to you directly to your home or office at no additional charge.

 Essilor of America has launched a new digital resource to explain the benefits and importance of No-Glare lenses. The site offers eight training videos that feature real-life situations to explain how both children and adults will benefit from No-Glare lens offerings. The videos cover a wide range of real-life situations: driving at night, children at school and other day to day activities.


Specifically, No-Glare lenses provide drivers with 20 percent sharper contrast so they can see objects more clearly which benefits in a five second faster recovery time after exposure to extreme glare such as headlights. For children, 80 percent of everything they learn in their first 12 years is through their eyes. No-Glare lenses decrease visual fatigue by eliminating glare caused by computers, whiteboards and classroom lighting so children stay focused on learning.
