The trend to watch: home optics

Reading time : 2 minutes
The optician traditionally officiates in a physical shop, in contact with his customers. It welcomes, advises and directs them towards the frames and glasses most adapted to their needs. And if this optician began to move gradually to the home of his patients?

Home optics: what is it?

We were talking about it a few months ago, home optics is a rising trend of optics in 2016. Saves time and energy, avoids travel, it brings the optician closer to customers. By appointment, up to 7 days out of 7 and sometimes even holidays, the optician offers the same services and benefits as in the shop, but at home or at work of his clients. The prices of this new generation of opticians are competitive and the offer is far from being limited.

Home optics: for whom?


It appears that some people, sometimes elderly, sick, hospitalized or in specialized institutions, do not always have a close to accompany them in shop. Some of them do not wear more glasses adapted to their sight for this reason! Also, clients are sometimes just too busy to visit their optician.
Home optics overcomes this and is thus convenient for people with reduced mobility and people on busy schedules.
