DRAPER, Utah, April 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, humanity takes a massive step toward reaching our shared dreams of jetpacks, hoverboards, the singularity, and fat-free cronuts: 1-800 CONTACTS announces their new Apple Watch app which allows the reordering of contact lenses in just two taps.
Two taps. New contacts. From your watch. We live in the future.
The app also features LensGauge which helps keep track of how long your lenses have been in and when you need to reorder.
"Since our inception, we've been dedicated to providing our customers with a simple, hassle-free way to order their contact lenses," said Tim Roush, CMO of 1-800 CONTACTS.
