ACCORDING TO THE Vision Council’s Focused inSights 2022 Digital Habits report, 56% of U.S. adults have purchased eyewear online at least once, 35% of Rx glasses wearers have bought their glasses online at least once, and 53% of those who use non-Rx products have bought eyewear online. Compulink’s MyEyeStore which builds privately branded e-commerce stores, has grown to 1 million registered patients. “The future of e-commerce in independent optical is near real time inventory syncing with your existing systems to seamlessly digitally display and sell the eyewear collections that make local practices and retailers stand out from their competition,” says Dave Barton, co-founder and CEO of Optify.

Smart Ways to Use E-Commerce Platforms

E-Commerce Platforms for ECPs That Are Built for Eyecare and Easy to Use

We started using Compulink’s MyEyeStore two years ago and in one year—June 2022 to June 2023— we’ve done $2 million in sales, mostly CLs. Once patients place an order on our website, they can either pick up in the office or ABB fulfills the request and MyEyeStore ships them. Patients aren’t limited to ordering during business hours. We’ve added skincare products, vitamins, and dry eye products, which anyone can order, not just patients. We can control what’s in our store, promote our own products, and pick and choose our own layout and design. If MyEyeStore carries the products, they will mail them to patients on our behalf. They send a text alerting patients their order has been received, and give them a tracking order once it has shipped.

Many ODs don’t understand patient data and the benefit of taking care of each patient all the way through their visit. By using a contact lens ordering portal or Optify we give patients the chance to do business with us the way they want to do business with us. If a single OD sees 15 patients a day, 70% will order contacts from them but about 30% will not, so you may have approximately $200,000 walking out your door. Dr. Contact Lens processes orders and doctors pay a low monthly subscription fee to help them capture walking scripts with many added benefits. It is important to note that about 80% of orders come from text, 15% from email, and 5% from a doctor’s website, which tells you how patients like to order. About 30% of orders come in overnight between 6pm-9am. If patients price shop, the doctor wins every time.
