COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearsighted or farsighted, contact lens wearers will rejoice about the latest venture of DiscountContactLenses.com. An eye care industry leader known for low prices, easy prescription verification and fast shipping launched a new app in October that makes shopping for contacts easier—and cheaper.
Maintaining healthy vision and saving money were top of mind when DiscountContactLenses.com designed their easy-to-use app. It helps alleviate customer oversights by sending notifications to change and reorder contacts, and it applies a ten percent discount to every purchase placed through the app.
"The app is a more straightforward way to reorder your contacts," said Brian Frank, vice president of e-commerce at DiscountContactLenses.com. "Customers can complete an order with two taps on a smartphone—and all of your information is already there, so it doesn't require extra time to fill out anything." The app is also designed to notify customers when they're running low on contacts and when they need to schedule an appointment with their eye doctor for a new prescription, Frank explained.
Currently, the app only accepts reorders from existing customers, although functionality for new orders, order tracking and account management is set to launch in 2017. In the interim, setting up an account to allow you to use the app can be done through the company's redesigned website. With an updated look and intuitive navigation, adding prescription and shipping information is simple. "The new website received a complete redesign making it fully responsive and optimized for all screen sizes. We want to simplify the purchase process for our customers, no matter what type of device they're on," Frank said.
