DRAPER, Utah, Feb. 2, 2016 — For twenty years 1-800 Contacts has worked hard to provide the fastest, most convenient, and economical ways to order contact lenses. As our customers have evolved and adopted new technologies, so have we. From our humble beginnings as an over-the-phone ordering service, to becoming the leading contact lens web retailer, and now with our mobile app – our focus has always been providing our customers the easiest way to get their lenses.

Launched in 2012, the 1-800 Contacts mobile app quickly became the top-rated contact lens app in both the Apple and Android markets. We are thrilled to announce that 1-800 Contacts has reached over one million app orders.

Ordering contact lenses has never been easier than it is on the 1-800 Contacts app. A customer can simply scan their contact lens box to enter their parameters and take a picture of their paper prescription for verification. Payment is simple with card capture or further streamlined with Apple Pay. The app also helps you never run out of contacts with useful features like LensGauge and Auto-Reorder.

“Customers appreciate how our app leverages the functionality on a smartphone to expedite the ordering process,” said Tim Roush, CMO of 1-800 Contacts. “We’re continuously looking at what we can do to provide contact lens wearers with an easy, hassle-free way to order their contacts.”
