Are the lenses from 1-800 Contacts the same ones I get at my doctor’s office?

Why are there non-English characters on my contact lens box? Does this mean they’re imitation lenses?
Some contact lens manufacturers sell the exact same contacts in different countries so they’ve put additional languages on the packaging. This does not mean they’re imitation lenses.
Are there ways to tell from the box where my lenses are made?
Yes, you will see on the contact lenses box where they are made. Regardless of where they’re made, every contact lens we sell has been approved by the U.S. FDA for sale and use in the United States.
