Having a backup pair of prescription eyewear is essential for good eye health.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 10, 2011
FramesDirect.com, the leader in online eyeglasses, sunglasses, prescription sunglasses, contact lenses and goggles sales, is pleased to announce the launch of a limited time discount promotion on prescription eyewear with a qualifying purchase of contact lenses on the site.
According to Dr. Dhavid Cooper, CEO and co-founder of FramesDirect.com, having a backup pair of prescription eyewear is essential for good eye health:
1. One of the major causes of blindness worldwide is a corneal ulcer caused by infection usually caused by bacterial accumulation under the contact lens.
2. There is an increased risk of corneal ulcers among contact wearers, especially those who do not follow a specified wearing schedule.
3. The incidence is higher among overnight contact lens wearers.
4. Good hygiene, frequent replacement of contact lenses – and giving the eye a break from contact lens wear on a regular basis all help to decrease the incidence of corneal ulceration.
So, FramesDirect.com is encouraging patients to make sure they have a backup pair of glasses and prescription sunglasses so that at least one day a week the patient can give eyes a break from contact lens wear.
With that in mind, here’s how the special Contact Lens Bundle works. For every contact lens order over $50 (excluding shipping charges), customers will receive a unique $50 promo code to use towards the purchase of prescription eyeglasses or RX sunglasses totaling $199 or more and purchased online through the FramesDirect.com web site.
The $50 promo codes for corrective eyewear are good for 45 days after the qualifying contact lenses purchase and cannot be used with other discounts or offers.
“One of the best kept secrets at FramesDirect.com has been our great pricing on contact lenses,” said Dr. Cooper. “Well, it’s not a secret anymore. We have reduced ALL of our contact lens prices through volume discounts. Combine these discounts with the prescription eyewear promo code for even greater savings!”
“And, FramesDirect.com does not have hidden handling fees to surprise you, just terrific pricing. Contacts usually ship within 24 hours of placing orders. A valid prescription is required to order all contacts and prescription eyewear,” he added.
FramesDirect.com is an Austin, Texas-based 24-hour/7-day-a-week eyewear store that currently features thousands of eyewear products, including designer frames, eyeglasses, sunglasses, prescription lenses and contact lenses as well as a patented online technology for finding eyeglasses, sunglasses and frames. Owned and operated by licensed optometrists who were in practice for years before starting FramesDirect.com, the only business they know is vision.
