Optical Near ME brings couture eyewear to women that want a better quality of vision.

When was the last time you bought a pair of eyeglasses?

Was it online?

Did you got to a store?

Was it your local eye doctor?

What was the quality of the frame and lens?

Sadly, most eyeglass owners do not know the answer to these questions. A simple miscalculation in measurement can equate to a MAJOR loss of visual acuity (how you see).

We thought it might be helpful to break down how to have fun buying eyeglasses AND to ensure you get the perfect fit!

So let’s talk about customer experience. The last time you made a purchase of anything there were many things that made you feel good or bad about that experience. To expect to have fun when buying eyeglasses is a tall order but it IS POSSIBLE!!! It all comes down to the practice and the boutique. IF they want to give you a fun experience, they CAN!!!

Take our Preferred Optical Near ME Stockton location, for example. Dr.’s Lee and Lee go a LONG WAY in bringing fun into the practice. There is a selfie wall, a wheel of fun and an incredibly fun INSTAGRAM profile you can follow to keep engaged. Dr. Derron Lee is a boss OD. He is not afraid to show his personality.

The best way today to have fun in buying eyewear AND make your life easier AND stay safe is to have a great online experience to supplement the in store experience. Luckily, Optical Near ME has created an amazing gamified online experience that partners with independent eyecare providers for a winning combination that puts the PATIENT first!

“We wanted to bring the fun of buying eyewear back into the experience,” says Optical Near ME founder Charlene Nichols. After supporting eyecare professionals my entire career and witnessing first hand their passion, I wanted to give them the tools to show the world how amazing they were.”

Optical Near ME has launched several projects this year and is celebrating the launch of their first fully omnichannel experience right in Stockton California!!!! Californians are about to be in for a treat with this exciting new COUTURE experience!
