Savings in sight; Cash Queens.

Byline: RUKI SAYID; TRICIA PHILLIPS

We've always got our eye on a bargain and found that when it comes to contact lenses you should have gone to Specsavers.

But buy online for the best deals, as the cost of high street lenses will really make your eyes water.

Our test of four high street opticians against four websites was an eye-opener, with internet savings of up to pounds 100 for the same set of lenses.

We trawled across the board and found a six-month supply of Air Optix Aqua was just pounds 36 online compared with pounds 132 at high street chain D&A.

So cast your eyes over our guide for a peek at how much money you can save.
