Hi IM,

Just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to purchase contact lenses anywhere in Kolkata if I bring my prescription.

Cheers

As you can get contact lenses in other Indian cities, I can't imagine that you won't get them in Kolkata.

Awesome, that is great news. Then, does anyone know a particular establishment I could go to? Or one that they would recommend?

Any branded shops would do. You should find atleast one in every busy street.
For detailed address close to the place where you would be put up, kindly search in Google or Just Dial.

Thanks.

Contact lens would be available(or they would procure the exact ones according to your prescription in 1-2 days) in almost every spectacles shop in every locality in the city.

The big names like GKB opticals, himalaya opticals, lawrence and Mayo, Supreme opticals etc have shops in all the big Malls(and elsewhere too).

Even without a prescription. The bigger shops can check your eyes themselves. I can second GKB and Lawrence and Mayo, I dont know their shops in Kolkata from the inside, but have seen them on Parkstreet, and I have bought contact lenses and glasses from GKB in Jaipur and Lawrence and Mayo in Chennai. Both times excellent service and price-value.

At GKB or Himalaya's, you will get contact lenses of international standard and if you desire, foreign made. Both the establishments are very big and of very high reputation to care. Do not at all worry - after all Kolkata is among 20 largest cities in the world and more than 20 million people live in the city and its fringe areas - more than the combined population of Australia and New Zealand.

Welcome to Kolkata
