How are you all doing during this very strange time? I hope you are all staying positive because this will not last forever. During this lockdown period in the UK, there are a few things I have experienced that made me think “if only the shops were open and things were ‘normal’”. My phone stopped working on me, it turned itself off and refused to come back on. To try and get any help to get it fixed has been a near-impossible task then I was running low on contact lens solution. Popping out to get more is not as easy now. Going into a shop is also a very different experience with social distancing in force. Then, I have to explain to my 5 year old why she can’t go to the shop with me because normally she would.
Before everything was convenient but now it is that bit more complicated. I’d like to know how many of you have sat on your glasses, lost your glasses or got your eyes tested right before the lockdown and now you cannot get to an optician to get new glasses?
Now I think is the time when purchasing glasses online comes into play and can be quite handy for people that are in need of some new frames. Ronit Furst has actually launched a new section to their online shop where you can purchase a frame and each frame will come with free single vision lenses. This offer is for the pandemic period only because they understand it is not easy for people to go out and buy new frames if they need them.
However, do check if Ronit Furst is able to deliver to your country first because at the moment due to some restrictions they’re not able to deliver to every country. To get your free prescription lenses with Ronit Furst it is quite easy. Go through the online shopping process like normal then click onto the “upgrade your lenses” tab. Type in your prescription and that’s it, Ronit Furst will do the rest and your new frame will arrive within a couple of weeks (hopefully if there aren’t delays with the post!). Please do bear in mind due to the current pandemic crisis, delivery time will be impacted and it may take longer than usual. Also, don’t forget to type in the code FS2020A for free shipping at checkout. Have fun choosing from their incredibly colourful range and here is their shop link.
