Aveo Lenses

Want to know all there is to know about Aveo’s lens technology and manufacturing? Read on!

We offer 3 subscription plans to suit any budget and lens-wearing habits.

Our Flex30 plan delivers 30 pairs of Aveo Hello daily contacts in each shipment — you pay just $36 for Aveo Hello, and $55 for Aveo Joy. You can stick with monthly shipments, or space out your deliveries if you don't wear your lenses every single day.

With our Easy90 plan, you get 90 pairs of lenses delivered 4 times a year — and for a limited time, you'll save 10% off the Flex30 subscription price.

Or choose our Annual+ plan to get 370 pairs of Aveo contacts delivered in a single shipment — and save 15% for a limited time.

You can switch your plan anytime right in your Aveo account.

Aveo Hello contacts correct common vision problems like nearsightedness and farsightedness.

Aveo Joy toric contacts correct nearsightedness and farsightedness too, and also correct astigmatism.

Both lenses give you dazzling, crystal-clear HD vision and all-day comfort.

To check if you have astigmatism, take a look at your contact lens prescription: if it’s correcting for astigmatism, it will show values for Cylinder and Axis.


Currently, Aveo Hello daily contact lenses are available in the following power ranges:

  • -0.50 to -6.00 in 0.25D steps
  • -6.50 to -10.00 in 0.50D steps
  • +0.50 to +4.00 in 0.25D steps
  • +4.50 to +6.00 in 0.50D steps

Currently, Aveo Joy daily contacts for astigmatism (toric) are available in the following ranges:

  • Power:  -0.50 to -6.00 in 0.25D steps
  • Cylinder: -0.75 to -1.75 in 0.50D steps
  • Axis: 10, 20, 90, 160, 170, 180

If you don't see your lens power, please let us know! We're adding new powers all the time. Just enter your prescription at https://aveovision.com/rx-notify/, and we’ll let you know as soon as we have the right lenses for you. 

Yes! Aveo Joy daily contacts are made specifically to correct astigmatism. Aveo Joy's thin, comfortable SteadyView design recenters the lens every time you blink — preventing the spinning, distortion, and "wobbles" that occur with other toric lenses. And like our Hello lenses, Aveo Joy contacts for astigmatism feature AquaLock for all-day hydration; BlissEdge for a frictionless, no-slip fit; natural biocompatibility; and Class II UV block.

Aveo makes it easy to get the lenses that work with your unique prescription! When entering in the details for astigmatism, simply enter 0 for cylinder and axis for the eye without astigmatism. We'll ship you one box of Hello (for the eye without astigmatism) and one box of Joy (for the eye with astigmatism). Your price will be adjusted accordingly. 

We don’t currently carry these types of lenses, but we want to make them available for you. Aveo contact lenses can be worn with reading glasses to allow you to switch easily between near and far vision correction.

Aveo packaging is 100% recyclable, and our inserts are printed using soy ink. We keep sustainability in mind, and our US distribution center is LEED Gold–certified. In addition, Aveo contacts are naturally biocompatible, and they take a lot less water to produce!

Our stringent quality control, including inspections under a magnifying high-definition camera, means only absolutely flawless lenses end up in your mailbox — so your contacts fit, feel, and focus just right, every time.

We care so much about making your eyes smile, that we’ve developed our own technology to ensure comfort, clear vision, and eye health. Here’s what makes up every Aveo contact lens:

  • Premium Omafilcon A with 58% water content for all-day comfort
  • AquaLock Technology for long-lasting hydration and natural biocompatibility
  • Aspheric optics design for outstanding HD vision
  • BlissEdge Design for a comfortable lens fit and better tear exchange
  • SteadyView for comfort, stability, and HD vision (toric)
  • Class II UV Blocker prevents on average 97% of UVB and 87% of UVA radiation
  • High O2 transmissibility for optimal ocular health
  • Packed in a gentle, non-irritating pH 7.4 saline solution similar to human tears, with no added artificial wetting agents

Aveo Joy daily contacts for astigmatism offer all the benefits above, plus feature SteadyView for comfort, stability, and HD vision

How It Works

We want to make your Aveo experience as clear and easy as possible! Here are the answers to questions you might have about how our subscription models work, renewals, cancellation, and everything else.

If you’re a new Aveo customer, your contact lens subscription gets you 10 pairs of free contacts along with your subscription. After we verify your prescription with your eye care professional, we ship your lenses right away. Other important details about your subscription:

  • There is a small shipping fee for your 10 free pairs
  • Shipping on your subscription is always free
  • Your chosen payment method will be charged each time lenses are shipped, and you can personalize your plan, change your deliveries, or cancel anytime.
  • We accept all major credit cards, including your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) that is affiliated with a major credit card
  • Like other online contact lens providers, we don’t deal directly with insurance companies, but you can submit your receipt from Aveo for reimbursement if you have vision care coverage

Visit our How It Works page to get started! 

Before we can ship you your lenses, we have to make sure we’re giving you the right contacts for your eyes — those are FTC rules, not to be broken! We care about your eyes, and want to make sure your lenses are the right fit.

Here’s how the doctor verification process works:

  • You give us your prescription and your eye care professional’s information
  • We reach out to your doctor to verify your prescription
  • As soon as we have verification from your doctor, your order is processed and shipped
  • If we don't hear back from your doctor within 8 business hours, your prescription is automatically verified according to FTC rules, and your order is processed and shipped

Please note that we can accept prescriptions only from US doctors.

Prescribers are actually required by law to automatically provide you with a copy of your prescription. But whether you never received your prescription, or your dog ate it, don’t stress. You can find it on your current box of lenses, or contact your eye care provider and ask for a copy.

To edit your existing prescription, simply go into your account under the prescription section and update with your new Rx details. Your next delivery will include your new prescription


If you’re new to the whole contacts thing, you’ll need to go to your local eye doctor for a comprehensive eye exam and contact lens fitting before you can order Aveo lenses. Once you have a prescription, you can create an account and give us your prescription and eye doctor info, and we’ll verify your prescription with your eye care professional. 


We know not everyone wears their daily contacts every day! With our Flex30 plan, you can choose to receive your contacts every 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 weeks — so you only get (and pay for) as many lenses as you need.

After the prescription verification process is complete (1 to 3 business days), it will take about 5 to 7 business days to receive your order via USPS. Like everyone else, we’re subject to carrier delays due to the current situation, so your lenses may take a bit longer than usual to arrive. We appreciate your patience!

You can customize the frequency of your contact lens shipments, change your next shipment date, or cancel your subscription anytime after your first order is shipped. We also offer the option to switch your subscription to our Easy90 or Annual+ plan for additional savings. 

Before your prescription expiration date, you’ll receive an email reminder so you can update your prescription if needed. Otherwise, we'll continue to send you the prescription we have on file with no disruption to your service. If you choose the annual plan, your entire year’s supply of contacts will be shipped at once. Annual plans cannot be canceled or refunded.

Oh no! We sincerely hope that doesn’t happen. If it does, please reach out to us via live chat on our website, email hello@aveovision.com, or call 1-833-HEY-AVEO

We accept returns of unopened boxes of contacts within 30 days of purchase, less a $5 restocking fee for Flex30 plans and a $10 restocking fee for Easy90 plans. We do not accept partial returns on Easy90 subscriptions.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept boxes that have been opened. We do not currently accept returns of Annual+ plans.

You can cancel your subscription anytime right in your account. You'll receive a confirmation email once your subscription has been canceled. If you need assistance, reach out to us via live chat on our website, email hello@aveovision.com, or call 1-833-HEY-AVEO.

And, remember, we offer flexible subscription plans that allow you to adjust your next renewal date as needed, or choose a delivery schedule that works for you. You can make these changes in your account, too!

Unfortunately, we don’t currently ship orders from this website outside the US. Working on it! We know our non-US friends want to experience the total bliss of Aveo contacts. We now deliver happy eyes to Malaysia through aveovision.my, to the UK and Ireland through aveovision.co.uk, and to Brazil through aveovision.com.br. Keep an eye out for further expansion, coming soon! 

Contact Lens 101

Got questions about contact lenses? We have answers! Take a look through our most frequently heard questions, and always check with your eye care professional if you’re unsure.

One of the most important things to consider — besides your prescription and unique eye needs — is the difference between daily disposable and frequent replacement prescription contacts.

Daily disposable lenses like Aveo are used for a day, then thrown away. No need for cleaning or hogging cabinet space with lens cases and solution bottles! Frequent replacement lenses are reused for two weeks or one month, and require daily cleaning to remove potentially harmful buildup before your next use. When buying contacts online, be sure to pick the lenses best suited for your lifestyle and needs.

Some lenses are also made for extended wear (you can sleep in them for a set period), or even longer use, but Aveo prefers to provide lenses with a shorter wear cycle. Swapping in fresh lenses more frequently reduces the risk of discomfort and harmful buildup. 

Just like shoes and clothes, contact lens comfort depends on the material, the fit, and the quality. Aveo daily contacts are made with a premium hydrogel called Omafilcon A, which has high oxygen transmissibility for optimal eye health! Our unique AquaLock technology and BlissEdge design mean maximum hydration and comfort for all-day wear.

Aveo Joy contacts for astigmatism also feature SteadyView, which results in a thinner, more comfortable toric lens that stays in place and re-centers itself on your eye every time you blink. Read more about our technology and rigorous QA process!

In most cases, having dry eyes doesn’t mean you can’t wear contact lenses! Check with your eye care professional to see if your eyes are suited for contacts.

To get long-lasting comfort, look for technology especially designed to bind to water and increase hydration. Check out the science that goes into Aveo lenses! 

Contact lens waste accounts for less than 0.5% of the average person’s personal waste — but it’s still important to do your research into the sustainability practices of any vision care brand you choose. Daily lenses actually generate less waste than glasses or longer-wear contacts (which come with extra plastic waste from solution bottles and storage cases). In fact, just one bottle of contact lens cleaning solution produces more plastic waste than than two-and-a-half years' worth of daily lenses!

We know you care about our planet, and we do too. That’s why we’ve created lenses that are naturally biocompatible and require up to 20 times less water to manufacture than other brands. All Aveo contacts ship from our LEED Gold–certified distribution facility in Sustainable Forestry Initiative–certified mailing boxes with a minimum of 50% post-consumer content — and every component of our packaging is 100% recyclable.

Protect our waterways by tossing used lenses in the trash. Contacts should never be flushed down the toilet or rinsed down the drain. 

Go for it! Rock that smokey eye or volumizing mascara. Wearing eye makeup like shadow, liner, and mascara won't hurt your contacts. If you get makeup in your eye while wearing contacts, you should take out the lens – especially if you feel stinging or burning. With daily contacts, you can easily open a fresh blister pack and pop in a clean lens. 

Contacts are not recommended for swimming, or water sports and activities of any kind. Instead, invest in a pair of prescription goggles. If you can’t avoid a one-time swim or surf lesson with your contacts on, be sure to throw them away as soon as you’re done and replace with a fresh pair. 

Great question! Here are ways to get started with healthy contact lens usage habits:

  • Always wash your hands before inserting or removing a contact lens
  • Always wash your hands before inserting or removing a contact lens
  • Don’t sleep with your contacts on!
  • Toss your lenses after contact with water (ocean, lake, pool, even the shower) 


If you wear daily contacts like Aveo Hello or Aveo Joy for astigmatism, it’s easy to remember: each new lens that you open is for one use or one day only. If your eyes come in contact with water – in the ocean, pool, or even the shower – you should also toss your lenses and replace with a fresh pair.

There are types of contacts designed to be worn for longer periods. Unlike daily contacts, which are always fresh and sterile, other types require daily cleaning of both the lenses and storage case to remove buildup. Improper care can let harmful substances like bacteria get into your eyes and cause infection. Always follow the instructions on the packaging and your eye doctor’s advice. 


We recommend taking your contacts out before sleep, including naps. Even a short rest can cause dryness and irritation. Wearing any contacts longer than their intended use can cause infections or even serious harm to your eyes. Daily contacts are meant to be discarded at the end of the day, every time you wear them. 

Airborne allergens like pollen can build up on contact lenses, making your eyes itchy, watery, red, and just generally being irritating. To ensure your lenses aren’t carrying allergen irritants from one day to the next, consider using daily disposable lenses like Aveo if you have allergies. 

No way! Wearing contact lenses longer than their intended use, even if they still feel comfortable, is super unhygienic and can lead to infections and serious harm to your eyes. Always stick to the replacement frequency recommended by your eye care professional. With daily disposable contact lenses like Aveo you start the day with a fresh pair of clean, comfortable lenses! 

Nope! If you only need contacts for certain occasions, such as driving or looking at your computer screen, or if you wear contacts while playing sports to avoid injury from broken glasses, daily disposable contacts might be your best bet. Daily contacts are also great for outdoor activities like camping and hiking! Learn more about Aveo daily contact lenses. 

Contacts have a right way and a wrong way, which your eye care provider should demonstrate during an exam. But if in doubt, here’s how to tell if your contact lens is inside out:

  • Wash and dry your hands, then place a lens on the tip of your finger
  • Hold it up and look at the lens from the side
  • If you’ve got it right, the edges will turn slightly inward
  • If it’s inside out, the edges will look like they’re bending outward
  • When correcting it, make sure to flip it gently to prevent tearing!

Wearing contacts inside out can affect your vision, and cause discomfort and irritation.

We’re happy to bust this myth. You have a thin membrane called the conjunctiva between your eyelids and eyeballs. Its continuous nature prevents contacts from getting behind your eyes. 

No. Tap water, or any other type of water, contains lots of microorganisms that can potentially cause serious eye infections. Always use contact lens solution to clean and store your lenses. If cleaning and storing lenses isn’t your jam, daily lenses are the contacts for you! 

Totally! There are lots of benefits to wearing contacts while playing sports aside from just sharper, clearer vision. Contacts give you a wider field of view than glasses, aren’t affected by reflections or rain, and they won’t fog when you work up that sweat. Aveo contact lenses also incorporate Class II UV protection, to keep your eyes safe when playing outside.

WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. The patient should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. 

Maybe, but you should always check with your ophthalmologist to confirm if and when you can wear contacts after eye surgery. LASIK surgery permanently alters the shape of your cornea, but it doesn’t prevent age-related farsightedness (presbyopia) developing later in life, and the need for future vision correction.
