Hubble: Daily contacts for half the price

Those of you who wear contact lenses know all too well about the nuisance they can be.

Sometimes we get a little lazy and forget to take them out. Other times we’ll wear them a lot longer than we’re supposed to just because. That protein gets caked on, and before you know it, you have an eye infection on the horizon. Ideally, we’d wear daily contact lenses and just chuck them into the garbage, but they’re expensive. They can cost more than a dollar a day, ranging from $480 to $720 annually.

Ben Cogan, a veteran of Harry’s, one of our favorite direct-to-order razor companies, was onto something when he realized two years ago that he either had to spend money or keep on wearing his remaining lenses in order to save money. “I knew there had to be a better, more efficient way to to get lenses, and I knew I wasn’t facing this problem on my own,” said Cogan.

With proper research he realized that there are only four contact lense manufacturers that control 95 percent of the market, while there were over 40 million contact lenses users in the United States, so he took the same approach that Harry’s did, cut out the middleman, and created Hubble, a new brand of disposable daily contact lenses that you can buy for $300 a year, half the price of the average cost of disposable dailies. Still wary of trying them out? They’ll even give you your first box for free to show you just how easy it is.

I tried it myself. All I had to do was enter my prescription and the next day, I had a box of contacts at my door. Not bad at all. I’ve worn them on several occasions, and they’re just as good as the other contact lenses — I won’t out those brands, you know what they are — that cost twice as much. It’s as easy and simple as that. So ditch your biweekly contacts. Ditch your dailies. Save yourself some money and get something nice. Switch to Hubble. We promise you won’t regret it.

Struggling with a receding hairline? How to fend off male pattern baldness
Male pattern baldness may be genetic, but there are ways to slow it down and fight it off a bit longer
A surprised man holding his head.

As we get older, we start to notice what's going on, on the top of our heads a little more. Our hair begins to thin, and our hairline begins to get scared and pull back. It’s all part of the aging process, but it's not always easy to get over or to deal with. Losing your hair sometimes feels like you are also losing a piece of yourself or a part of your identity. Thanks to modern medicine and innovative technologies, hair loss due to male pattern baldness is no longer the death sentence for your hairline that it used to be.

Earlier treatment plans, medications, topical tinctures, surgery, and over-the-counter therapies give balding shoppers hope of hanging onto their locks for as long as possible. While male pattern baldness is inevitable for some, it does not mean you have to give up without a fight. We'll help you hang on to hope — and your hairline — for as long as possible.
