We’ve all been sheltering going on 3 weeks now and I know everyone is still trying to adapt to this new normal. The Bay Area has been ordered to shelter until May 3 and while the roadmap still looks hazy, there’s some strength in knowing that we’re all in this together. No one is alone on this journey and it has been so uplifting to hear about neighbors trying to help each other, looking out for our elders, and being there for each other.
This last week, we have been working hard to find ways to support our community and our patients. I’m so glad to have some exciting news and announcements:
1. Our online store front is LIVE!
We are releasing our online store in a few waves, as we have lots of frames to share with you! If you find a few frames you like and you’re not 100%, reach out to us to schedule an appointment.
If you would like to order any of our frames with our amazing clear blue light blocking lenses without prescription, it is just a $40 add on to your frames! Please reach out to us about ordering prescription lenses and we can schedule an appointment to chat about your options.
2. Implementation of our HIPPA compliant patient portal!
If you need spares or a new pair of glasses made during this shelter-in-place, send us a message and we’ll send you an invitation to our patient portal. You can virtually check-in from your phone, tablet, or computer and input your information, sign necessary consent forms, and upload a copy of your prescription from your optometrist. You can also send us messages in your portal if you have any questions or concerns.
3. Introducing We Love Eyes to Specs!
We Love Eyes is an eyecare product line produced by Dr. Tanya Gill, an optometrist, to keep our eyes and face clean. As we know, COVID-19 can be transmitted via the eyes, nose, and mouth and we’re told to avoid touching our face throughout the day. But, we’re human and that’s easier said than done!
Dr. Gill has made face hygiene easy with We Love Eyes Hypochlorous Eyelid Cleansing Spray and Tea Tree Eyelid Foaming Cleanser! Spray on throughout the day to keep your face and eyelids clean and wash your eyelids in the morning and at night with the foaming cleanser for clean eyes.
4. FREE shipping for Acuvue contact lenses!
If your contact lenses are running out, we can order new ones for you and ship them to your house for free! Reach out to us and we can make it happen!
Lastly, if you have any expiring insurance benefits you want to take advantage of, don’t hesitate to reach out. Let us help ensure your eyes are focused and healthy during these uncertain times.
As always, it means the world to us that you’ve continued to support us and our small business. We hope to continue delivering world class experiences, even if it is from the comfort of your couch instead of our cozy store. Let’s continue to support each other and our communities as we find our way to the other side, stronger, together.
Be safe, stay healthy!
Esther, Mary, and Michael
