You can purchase just about everything online these days. With a few clicks and taps of a keyboard everything from food to furniture can be delivered to your doorstep in a matter of days! We’ve all done it at some point – in many cases online shopping is the easier option because it’s convenient, or the only way to get exactly what you want. However what about buying your contact lenses online? Recently, online contact lens companies have popped up all over the place. Websites like Clearly Contacts and Perfect Lens became giants seemingly overnight by offering major brands for sale on their website. More recently, Hubble Contacts has begun offering a subscription service for contact lenses; a monthly fee gets you a month’s supply of daily lenses. All of these companies’ campaigns say the same thing: We are the better way to buy contacts.” But are they really the better option? Are the promises of convenience and cost effectiveness true? Is buying your contact lenses online better than coming to the licensed opticians at Creditview Optical? Let’s find out.
First, we come to the matter of convenience. Online retailers of contact lenses argue that it’s much easier to press a few buttons than going to a store to get your supply of lenses. This is arguably true, it is easier. But did you know that we ship contact lenses, just like all online retailer do? That’s right; you can buy contact lenses from us from the comfort of your own home. It’s as simple as emailing us, phoning in your order 905-826-2811, or ordering through our website. Shipping is totally free with a minimum order of 6-months supply! There is bonus for coming into our store to order your contact lenses. Our opticians make a commitment to make sure that all contact lens patients are aware of the latest technologies and products to suit their needs.
Secondly, rebates easily make our contact lenses more affordable than online retailers. Let’s use Hubble, the newest entry into the world of online contact lens sales, as our example. Hubble Contacts offers a $30 per month subscription which gets you a month’s worth of contact lenses. These lenses are made of an older generation hydrogel material that limits oxygen transmission to the cornea. A year’s supply of these lenses comes out to $528. Let’s dare to compare with a lens we sell at Creditview Optical: Dailies Total1 from Alcon. These lenses are widely regarded as one of the best contact lenses available on the market today. It is made of an advanced silicone hydrogel material that allows a great deal more oxygen transmission and is overall healthier for your eye. A year’s supply of these lenses is $490 after a $200 mail-in rebate! The price on Clearly for the same product is $736 plus $10 shipping! Rebates offered by Creditview Optical make our store more affordable than online retailers every time.
It’s clear by now that coming to Creditview Optical is the better option. We are just as convenient as online retailers and we are more affordable. There is one more thing that sets us apart from contact lens websites. At Creditview Optical we have a team of qualified opticians that don’t just sell contact lenses, we make sure to optimize your ocular health. Contact lenses are an excellent complement to glasses for a wide variety of patients, however the fact remains…you are putting something on one of the most sensitive and delicate places on the human body. Improperly fit and worn contact lenses can damage your sight in the long term. Online contact lens retailers are totally unable to offer you the quality of care that we offer at Creditview Optical. Your vision is our focus!
