Aventura, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/14/2014 -- According to industry statistics recently released, nearly 75% of all Americans wear some sort of corrective lenses, with 64% of those wearing eyeglasses as opposed to contact lenses. While the overwhelming number of people still buy their glasses in retail stores, industry statistics showed last year 98% of consumers bought their glasses from a brick and mortar store, a fast growing segment of the population is ordering their glasses online to save money. With this in mind and to capture the future growth of the market, Optical World spokesperson Adam Hodson recently announced the launch of their online store.
Says Hodson, "We offer top name brand glasses and sunglasses with free prescription lenses, providing consumers a savings of hundreds of dollars. These aren't cheap glasses either, we're talking about brand name frames and high quality polycarbonate AR lenses." According to IBIS World's Market Research Report, the online eyeglasses and contact lens industry is expected to continue growth over the next five years, having seen an explosion in revenues over the last five years. Says Hodson, "Many people want to save money and shop brand name glasses online, but in the past, they've been held hostage by the retail eyeglasses store industry that was reluctant to give out the one detail they needed to order their glasses online, the PD or pupilary distance. We have solved this problem by offering a free pair of high quality polycarbonate AR prescription lenses included free of charge. We will even contact your eye doctor for you to get your prescription. Glasses are expensive, so why pay for the prescription?"
Hodson goes on to say, "We only use high-quality, polycarbonate anti-reflective/anti-glare lenses, and each pair of lenses comes with our quality guarantee. If there is manufacturer defect or your prescription doesn't feel right, we'll replace the lenses free of charge."
Offering brand name frames for typical glasses as well as sunglasses, Hodson says the free lens offer is good for both types of glasses. He elaborates, saying, "Whether you want to shop prescription sunglasses or a new pair of glasses for everyday use, we have options to fit every face shape and color. Additionally, we offer free shipping on all Optical World orders, saving the consumer even more on their purchase."
