CVS Pharmacy announced the launch of QuickRenew, an online contact lens prescription renewal tool currently available on the CVS Optical website. Customers can use the tool to renew their prescription in minutes with an independent ophthalmologist and order contact lenses to be shipped to their home.
“We continue to adapt and evolve our digital offerings in response to the pandemic. This addition to our optical site gives customers a new way to fulfill an important health care need safely and confidently from the comfort of their homes,” Michele Driscoll, Vice President of Customer Engagement, ExtraCare, Digital, & Promotion, CVS Health, said in a company news release. “This is especially important at a time when customers are trying to limit their interactions or are finding it difficult to schedule time with an optometrist. Digital screening takes less than 15-20 minutes, and information is reviewed by a licensed independent ophthalmologist.”
The QuickRenew online prescription renewal service is currently available in 32 states, where permitted. Patients must be age 18-55, have been fitted for contact lenses in the past, have had a full eye exam within last 4 years and have healthy eye history.
In addition to QuickRenew, CVS Optical has also launched a new online glasses site that provides customers the ability to order glasses in a variety of styles starting at $79, and a single-vision prescription comes at no extra cost. Each pair of glasses includes polycarbonate lenses that provide UV and scratch protection, and lenses can be upgraded to include blue light filtering to reduce eye strain and fatigue from digital devices.
