I turned up without an appointment, and they helped me immediately which was nice. I had a lense prescription, and even ordered contacts all within 25 min. I think the consultation was about 140tl (With insurance you pay about 1/4 of that. Depending on your insurance of cos). 6 months supply of contacts is about 350tl, a year's worth is about a 100 or so more. All in all a very good experience. The security and reception ladies in particular were very friendly and helpful. UPDATE:. Well, no one called me to say the lenses came. So I used their website, and send two seperate messages, to inquire about the lenses. No one replied. I went back to them a few days later, and the lenses were there. It's just my general observation that, many Turkish companies do not use internet communication well. Everyone calls, or wants you to call them. Which makes is a bit more difficult for foreigners.
