The website http://www.uniquehomedeals.info has the best answers to all your contact lens related doubts. Check it out.

It usually just depends where you are getting your contacts and if they have them in stock or it may take longer if you have a special prescription. If you go buy them at Wal-Mart it usually takes about 4 days to a week to receive them. If they arrive earlier they will give you a call and let you know they are ready for pick up!

If you don't get them the same day as your exam, the office will probably have to order them. It just depends on your prescription. If they have to order it, it could be at least a week and sometimes more.

usuallly shops they can have it ready after the exam, but others you have to wait a couple of days...it all depends on how bad your eyesight is

it depends on where you bought them from. Some places you can get them the same day.

Same day, but no longer that a week at the most.

I'm guessing you've never worn contacts before or you wouldn't be asking...am I right?

If that's the case and you've never worn them, you're going to need an appointment to be taught how to put the lenses in, how to take them out, and how to clean and care for them. So unless you've gone through this already, you're going to need this before they will give you any lenses to take home. If they didn't already schedule you an appointment, it means they probably had to order you're lenses and will call and schedule you to come in to sit down with one of the Opticians so they can go over everything with you. If they had to order your lenses, depending on what kind they are, they could take anywhere from a few days to 2 weeks, ESPECIALLY with the holiday in there back on the 4th. So, unless your doctor has hours on Saturday and the lenses happen to come in OR they get them in early Monday and they have you come in early to learn how to put them in, it is unlikely that you will have them by Monday night, as it is now Monday afternoon, here on the East Coast.

If you've already had your session to learn how to put the lenses in, then its possible they could be in today, or tomorrow (if they have Sat. hours) or Monday...

Your best bet is to call your eye doctor's office and see if they can give you an estimate on when they are due in. Again, remember we just had the 4th holiday this week, so likely things that were being shipped got pushed back a day or two...

Either way, hope they come in time for you!
