Optical- Eyecare Trends With Online Eyecare Retailers.
It used to be that online eyecare retailers either sold eyewear or contact lenses and the occasional eyeglass accessory. The latest trend is for online eyecare retailers such as www.lenscatalogue.co.uk is to sell more than contact lenses and colored contact lenses. They have expanded into profitable and consumer driven products: eyeglass accessories and eye health such as readers, computer vision aides, contact lens cases, swimming goggles, cosmetics, dry and red eye treatments, eyeglass accessories, lens inserters, vitamins and supplements and more.
Pretty much they have become one stop shopping for the consumer for eyecare needs even offering gift certificates. I think you will see more and more of online eyecare retailers responding to consumer demand (your patients) and continue to grow by offering products and services that the brick and mortar eyecare professional avoids or is oblivious to.
