The price of contact lenses can widely vary but mine are always expensive so I was excited to learn about Hubble! I’ve been using daily lenses for a few years now but that can get pricey so $30 a month sounded like a dream!
Before I signed up, I wanted to do a little research on the quality of lenses.
From the Hubble site:
Our lenses are made from high-grade methafilcon A hydrogel material. With 55% water content, UV protection, and a thin edge, they’re designed for easy insertion, all-day comfort and crystal clear vision.
The lenses are FDA approved and come in the standard 14.2 diameter with a base curve of 8.6. They currently offer lenses with powers ranging from -0.50 to -12.00 and +0.5 to +6.00.
They currently don’t offer toric lenses for those with astigmatism but plan to in the future!
Note, you need a valid Hubble contacts prescription from your doctor before signing up. You can go to your current doctor and ask for a Hubble specific prescription. If you don’t have one, they offer to locate a doctor in your area to get an exam, though this does seem like it’s currently a limited service area.
After I was able to put in my order, my first box shipped out within 48 hours!
My first shipment came with this little booklet that explained the contact packaging, contact information for Hubble, and some really cute illustrations.
Hubble contacts come in these really adorable boxes. I love the design!
The back of the box reiterates the specifications of the contacts, including the breakdown of the lenses themselves and the manufacturer’s information.
Your prescription is displayed on the side of the box. This also displays the expiration date of the lenses.
The cute packaging continues on the strip of contacts! Your prescription is also clearly displayed here.
If you’ve used contacts before, you’re familiar with this kind packaging! These are pretty standard little pods and the contacts looked like my typical lenses. They’re faintly blue so you can easily see them.
My only concern when I ordered these is that I typically use a base curve of 8.5. My doctor was fine with trying this 8.6 base curve and I didn’t notice a difference. These felt exactly like my other daily contacts. When I wear contacts, it’s typically for the whole day so I definitely get at least 15 hours out of them. These were comfortable and an easy switch to make.
Verdict: I’m really pleased with Hubble! If their lens specifications fit your needs, $3 is a great price to try a new box of daily lenses. These felt like every other brand of daily contacts I’ve enjoyed over the years so I’m really happy with the quality of the lenses.
At first, I didn’t love the idea of a monthly delivery because I’m used to buying my contacts in bulk. I don’t actually wear contacts every single day so I always have some left over when my yearly restock reminder comes. With Hubble, you have the option to skip months so I can arrange deliveries as needed and avoid waste! The cost of contacts can really vary from person to person but Hubble literally is half the cost of what I was paying! I had to triple check the cost of my last contact order to verify that because it seemed like there was no way I had paid so much for contacts but that’s accurate! These are beyond a deal for me!
