A box of lenses contains a pair of lenses for both eyes (2 lenses). Meaning if you want to purchase 1 pair, select quantity "1" to place order. Likewise, select "2" for 2 pairs of lens.
Q: Do you have different prescription for a single box?
We do not offer different prescriptions in a single box of a pair of lenses for regular non or prescription lenses. Customers would have to purchase 2 boxes of different prescriptions if they have different power/degree for both eyes.

For Toric/Astigmatism lenses, you can select or choose different prescriptions individually/separately for both eyes.
