The golden years can be the best part of life so long as we look after ourselves properly. Since we only get two eyes, it becomes incredibly important to take care of our vision. Seniors are often the biggest sufferers of wrong prescriptions, broken glasses, and an inability to simply get to stores or the doctor’s office.
One of the best outcomes of the online eyewear revolution is what it has done for older communities by giving options, freedom, and simplicity that did not exist before.
1. Shopping for Glasses From Your Home
Getting around is not always the easiest thing to do! First a doctor’s appointment for a prescription, then an optical store, maybe even two or three. Shopping for glasses online allows seniors to do the very same thing from the privacy and comfort of their own home. No lines, no finding rides, no waiting.
2. Simple Return Process, No Questions Asked
What happens when glasses don’t come out right? For a senior it often means suffering with the wrong prescription or ill fitting glasses. It can mean fighting with an insurance company, or more unnecessary trips out. Online eyewear store GlassesUSA.com specifically made a ‘no questions asked’ return/exchange policy for this purpose. It operates off the mentality that everyone should have the right pair of glasses, even if it means fixing or exchanging.
3. Selection is Key
Not every optical store has everything. Seniors often have specific needs like light-weight titanium, wrap-around frames, multifocal lenses, special tints and so on. An online store like GlassesUSA.com has a built-in menu bar that lets users target exactly what they need when buying. Regardless of the complexity of a prescription, or the exact needed frame type, buying online provides seniors a way to take care of all specifications easily, in one place.
4. Easy reimbursements from insurance
What if it was possible to buy a new pair of glasses while bypassing the bureaucracy of insurance companies? Buying online through GlassesUSA.com does just that. Since it operates as an out of network provider for most vision insurance plans, it requires nothing more than a few simple steps to receive a full insurance reimbursement. And that's great for seniors who already deal with enough healthcare bureaucracy!
5. It Costs Way Less!
Seniors tend to live off of smaller budgets makting even necessities like a pair of glasses into a luxury. By cutting out middlemen, GlassesUSA.com makes it possible to get a quality pair of glasses at a much lower price than in an optical store, and that means the freedom and safety of buying more than one pair!
Everyone of every age describes a set of perfectly working eyes. Since we are not all lucky enough for that, the next best thing is a pair of great glasses. With the new ability to buy reduced priced glasses online and from home, seniors can take advantage of new technology to see better.
