Walmart, Sam's Club launch new contact lens program for 2013

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Walmart and Sam's Club are introducing a new contact lens program for 2013, the retailers said Thursday.

The new program will allow customers to visit Walmart's or Sam's Club's website or call a toll-free number to place contact lens orders and have them delivered to their homes, with free shipping available for orders of more than $50. In addition, the two are offering low prices for certain Acuvue, Air Optix and Biofinity lenses, while Walmart is planning to launch its private-label Equate brand in February.

"At Walmart and Sam's Club, we are always looking for ways to make it easier and more affordable for our customers to live healthier lives," Walmart health and wellness division president John Agwunobi said. "This new contact lens program, coupled with our in-store Vision Centers and in-club Optical Centers, provides our customers with a true one-stop vision solution."
