Here at Optique Eye Care / Eye Wear, you and your precious eyesight are our number one mission. For this reason, we are constantly searching for ways to make our services more valuable and convenient you.
In recent blogs, we’ve revealed why we feel the care you receive from Optique is so critical to the long-term health of your eyes and vision.
Now we’re introducing a new service that we believe will make your Optique experience even more spectacular: online ordering of contact lenses.
Why You’ll Benefit So Much from This New Service
If you’re like most contact-lens wearers, you’ve probably noticed a very significant jump in the cost of your contacts, particularly over the past three or four years. You’ve probably asked yourself, What has driven this price increase?
There has been an explosion in the technology of contact lenses in the past two years that has been driven by significant investments in research and development. Lens materials of today allow significantly more oxygen to reach the surface of the eye, while allowing the lenses to wet better and stay more comfortable then ever before. Daily disposable lenses have become the lens of choice for most patients today. If your current doctor has not offered you newer technology in contact lenses, it is time to switch over to Optique. With that convenience and value, comes a greater cost. Or so they say …
But here’s where Optique’s new online-ordering service steps in—to help you battle this trend and achieve significant savings. Here’s the thinking and strategy behind this new service:
By far the most cost-effective way for you to purchase contact lenses is to buy a year’s supply from your doctor at the time of your eye exam, so you can take advantage of the significant manufacturer’s rebates (which are ONLY offered to independent doctors of optometry, such as those at Optique).
But—you may be wondering—what if the cost of buying for an entire year at once is still too high for you?
No problem. We have you covered. With Optique’s new online ordering service, while you are in for your eye exam, we can sign you up for convenient, user-friendly online ordering so you only purchase the number of lenses you wish to use. With daily disposable contact lenses, this makes wearing lenses much more affordable.
Enjoy a Whole New Level of Ordering Ease and Convenience
When you choose to use our new online ordering service, you can purchase additional boxes directly from Optique’s website (https://optiquenashville.com), from the convenience of your home or mobile device.
Ordering from us is cost-competitive (please don’t fall for other online companies’ bait-and-switch tactics!) … and we constantly monitor competitors to offer you the very best price possible.
Guaranteeing the Accuracy of Your Prescription
The best part for you is that you’ll no longer have to worry about the accuracy of your prescription. Contact-lens resellers are required by law to verify the accuracy of your prescription with your eye doctor prior to sending your supply. When you register in the office with us, your prescription comes directly from your doctor, and therefore is guaranteed to be accurate. This also will save you time after you place your order, since there will be no additional verification steps required.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Ordering through Optique also will protect you from well-known online contact lens retailers involved in scandals that have been widely reported in recent years. Numerous profit-hungry companies—for whom your welfare is the LAST consideration—have been discovered to ship contacts BEFORE they verify prescription accuracy … and even to use loopholes in the law to substitute lenses, in order to swell their profits.
A Final Thing You Should Know …
When Dr. Michele—my wife and partner at Optique—and I contemplated offering this new online-ordering service, we wanted to make sure it served you in absolutely the best way possible. For that reason, we have partnered with the world’s largest distributor of verified contact lenses, so you benefit from world-class professional logistics at no additional cost.
