FAQ’s during COVID-19: Community Assistance
How can local community members support small businesses in Plainfield?
Well, as is often the case we thought up 4 ways every resident can support local small business:
1) Share positive experiences online:
Whether that means a review on your favorite site or a testimonial on that business’s website, sharing something positive can be uplifting for so many. You can write a review for your favorite eye doctor and his hard working staff here: 4Sight Reviews.
2) If you can afford to, Buy Gift Certificates to enjoy later:
Here are a few restaurants we know are using gift certificates to their fullest that are near and dear to us: Freedom Brother’s Pizza, Hop Scotch and Vine or Opera Steakhouse, and Sovereign.
Not to be outdone by our restauranteur friends, we have prepared our own Eyewear Gift Certificates valued at $140 and available at 815-676-4474 for just $100 each – no limit on how much you can save. Pocket $40 every time you spend it on yourself or provide someone else with up to $280 off their next eyewear purchase. Text an order for the e-gift certificate to 815-676-4474.
3) Call for purchases to be picked up curbside:
Yes, every essential business is offering curbside pickup nowadays and we are no different. Whether you have a product waiting here that you purchased pre COVID-19 or you have a need right now that we can help with we would be happy to deliver them to your vehicle. Just text us at 815-676-4474 upon arrival and we will bring your product out to you whether you need computer eyestrain relief with Screen Shield Pro/Teen or other vitamins stocked here at the office, Fresh Day contacts available at the office or receive any brand at home with FREE SHIPPING, or you’d like to buy glasses, an eyewear protection warranty, or just a new $5 cleaning kit.
4) I’ve heard news stories of manufacturers shifting what they make to accommodate the new normal:
We’ve been seeing a lot more e-learning and online commuting in our extended family and thought “Wouldn’t it be nice if we provided a way everyone could be protected from the digital eye strain associated with staring at a lit screen all day?” Well we can help with that! As mentioned above we have always offered vitamins known as macular pigments and the latest in the portfolio are called Screen Shield Pro and Screen Shield Teen and they work just like they sound – increasing the internal shields that block the harmful blue-violet light that is projected by most all digital devices. To purchase vitamins with our doctor-office discount you’ll want to visit: Our EyePromise Page. But it occurred to us that not everyone wants to take a vitamin and not everyone wears prescription eyewear. So we have also developed a budget line of clear blue filtering, non-glare packages that include the prescription quality lenses, blue-light protection, non-glare (for zoom and other video chats), and the frame for just $99. Whether you wear contacts or just go without any correction we can add a fashionable layer of protection against the harmful rays for less than the normal cost of lenses. Add $50 and we’ll put your computer power in the glasses ($100 for computer and near in a digital lens design). These exclusive blue-light protecting eyewear packages are only available for a limited time, so call us at 815-676-4474 to place your order ASAP! We are bending the curve, but the use of online learning/working isn’t going to decrease anytime soon.
