The new web enterprise enables customers to purchase lenses for 50-80 percent less than typically paid at a retail store. By sending in old favorite frames, they can be refurbished with the new lenses at a significant savings.
“While cutting out the daily lattes might be an option, health care should be the last line item to go from your personal budget,” said New York City Optician Tej Bhulai. “This website gives people a choice. They can take care of their eyesight without draining their bank accounts.”
Eyeglass lenses typically cost between $100-$500 at places like LensCrafters or Cohen’s Fashion Optical, said Bhulai. Designer frames can be even pricier. “Throw in the price of an office visit and the time investment, and no wonder people are putting off replacing their glasses,” said Bhulai.
SaveMoneyOnGlasses.com also offers an e-book that provides a broad scope of information about eye care and where to purchase name-brand frames and lenses from online discount sites and where to find bargain or free vision services. The book, written by an optician with 10 years of lab and dispensing experience, was authored to educate people about their prescriptions and make them wiser consumers.
The e-book outlines where to get top-quality lenses such as Varilux, Kodak and Zeiss at significant savings. It also reviews nine online stores that sell top brand-name frames for $40-$80 cheaper than buying them at neighborhood optical stores.
Other topics in the e-book include:
Where to get free single-vision lenses.
How senior citizens can get a free eye exam if they can’t afford to pay.
How seniors without health care can find providers who will treat eye conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, and retina problems for free.
How to get a progressive lens for several hundred dollars cheaper than typical retail stores.
What you need to know about Lasik eye surgery to make a wise decisions about your vision.
How to avoid being defrauded when purchasing a premium lens. (You will find out how to check to see if you got the lenses you paid for from your previous eyeglass vendor, and what to do if you suspect you have received something of inferior quality.)
For those who live in NYC, you can purchase lenses online (or contract with SaveMoneyOnGlasses for shopping assistance with Internet purchases) but still be fitted locally.
“We understand the value of frugality,” explains Bhulai. “Hassle-free service is our policy with no pressure to purchase expensive frames or lenses – ever. No matter what your prescription is, you can rest assured that you will get the thinnest, best quality product possible, while spending the minimum amount.”
