EyeBuyDirect Launches Lightning Fast Delivery for Eyewear

January 15, 2020 GMT

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 15, 2020--

It used to be that you had to go to your eye doctor and wait for weeks and weeks for your new glasses to come in. Then brands like EyeBuyDirect came on the scene, transforming the industry by cutting out the middleman and offering fashionable frames with direct-to-consumer shipping.

Now EyeBuyDirect is transforming the eyewear market yet again with lightning-fast 2-Day Delivery, a revolutionary breakthrough for the eyewear industry.

Call it the Amazon effect. The online retail giant transformed the way that we shop by introducing speedy shipping for nearly every product imaginable. Now, when it comes to prescription glasses, EyeBuyDirect is delivering what you need at Amazon speed — and it’s the first online eyewear company to do so. This means there’s no longer any need to panic when you break or lose your glasses. EyeBuyDirect makes it painless to replace your frames quickly with 2-Day Delivery.

Now, for just $29 more, new frames will reach your doorstep in only two days. So how does it work? It’s incredibly straightforward:

Step 1: Choose a style. Click on any frame design below to get started.
Step 2: Click 2-Day Delivery. On your desired frame’s page, click the “2-Day Delivery Service” box and select your lenses.
Step 3: After checkout, get ready to meet your perfect pair of glasses in just two days.

“We know that consumers’ mentality has shifted, and expectations are higher,” says Sunny Jiang, CEO at EyeBuyDirect. “We are always striving to improve our customer service, and one major focus has been reducing delivery times.” For EyeBuyDirect, part of being affordable and accessible to everyone means getting eyewear to customers as quickly as possible. The 2-Day Delivery offer currently excludes some parts of the United States like Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico.

“We know that shoppers are accustomed to quick turnarounds when they place an online order. With 2-Day Delivery, our goal is to be a dependable and speedy eyewear retailer, rivaling the delivery windows that shoppers expect,” says Jiang. “As we nail down the logistics and operations behind this revolutionary feature, we will continue to expand the offerings and keep the user experience top-notch.”

True to the brand’s mission that quality eyewear should be accessible and affordable to everyone, this program is sure to make waves in the eyewear industry. After all, “the ability to see shouldn’t be held at a premium when it’s such an integral part of our daily lives,” says Jiang. And the ability to see shouldn’t take weeks’ worth of delivery time, either.
