Think of it as a gift from our family to yours.

EyeGlass People a leading provider of online prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses that enjoyed a record year in 2012, today announced new discounts and services for 2013 that will benefit consumers who want to save on high-quality, low-cost products.

“We’re going to get the company to the next level by building on my family's many years of outstanding service and value,” said Nick Sapia, General Manager of EyeGlass People.

Sapia says some people are still reluctant to have prescriptions filled online, even though EyeGlass People offers discounts of 50% to 70% over what they’d pay at an eyewear store or the doctor’s office.

Others are puzzled by the whole concept of getting prescriptions filled online. They have concerns about quality, accuracy and speed.

“All our work is verified by Texas-licensed opticians and made in a state-of-the-art laboratory. Top quality material is used and rigorous quality standards are in place. All the work is fully guaranteed,” said Sapia.

Customers can send in their existing glasses to have their prescription duplicated. Or they can send in a new prescription. Eyeglass People can work with new or existing frames.

And now EyeGlass People is upping the game, with a bonus discount and two new services:

  •      Two Way Shipping: When customers order replacements lenses from Eyeglass People, the company will now email them a label that entitles them to free postage when they mail in their glasses. Customers can just print out the label, put it on any box, and put it in their mailbox. No more trips to the post office.
  •     At Home Try-On: Customers can now try on a few pairs of glasses in the comfort of their own homes. The At Home Try-On service will send send customers up to 5 frames to try on for a week. There is no charge for this service.

There remain many misconceptions about prescription eyeglasses. One is that you have to buy new frames when your prescription is updated. Not so, says Sapia.

“We recently received a great thank you email from a customer we were able to help. His local shop refused to place new lenses in old frames without ridiculous charges. The customer suspected the shop wanted to sell him new frames. But we put new lenses in his old frames, something we do every day. It’s just one of the many services we perform that saves our customers a ton of money.”

EyeGass People began as an optical lab and expanded into retail stores before launching its online business in 2004.

“EyeGlass People is a family-run company started by my Dad years ago. We both believe in old-fashioned service and giving back to the community. We’re proud to support the Lion’s Club Vision program,” Sapia wrote today in an email newsletter to the company’s 5,000 subscribers.

The same newsletter offered an additional 13% discount to anyone who uses the coupon code 2013 at checkout before January 18, 2013.

"Think of it as a gift from our family to yours," said Sapia.
