Have you heard of Sightbox?
What is Sightbox?
An online contact lens service and eye exam setter-upper. It claims to “simplify the annual contact lens exam, fitting and purchasing experience for people who wear soft contact lenses”.
- Sightbox sets up the appointment at an OD office (the patient can choose the OD if they prefer) for the exam and contact lens fitting.
- Sightbox pays your full exam fee the same day.
- Patients use your contact lens Rx and get their contacts through Sightbox.
Sightbox has monthly payment plans that range from $39/month to $89/month depending on if the patient wears a monthly, two week, or daily lens. All plans include the exam, fitting fee, and a year supply of contacts.
You get your full exam fee the same day, no submitting to insurance. Also, you can fit any name brand contact lens.
You lose a contact lens sale.
