I only realized lately that it has been more than 3 years since my last eye check-up when I had to endure a bad headache caused by my poor eyesight.
Since this Covid-19 pandemic started I rarely use my two old specs because I already feel uneasy with it. The oldest specs with transition lens was my everyday eyewear. I wore for more almost 11 years had too many scratches already while the other which I ordered as a back-up in an optical shop in a mall 3 years ago makes me feel like my eyes is going to pop out. I rarely use that --- only when there very special speaking engagements where I need to see clearly and look presentable.
Lockdown happened 2020 and then a series of workcation travel this 2021 made it difficult for me to have my eyes checked. I actually completely forgot about it until recently when I had episodes of headache triggered by my eyesight. I know I can no longer delay it. This can no longer wait until I'm back in my home region in Bicol.
So I googled to find a reliable eye care provider nearby where I am staying here in Cebu. I'm kinda picky when it comes to eye care products and services because
1) it costs money!!!
2) covid-19 threat is real!
3) I want an eyewear that is comfortable for everyday use (hindi nakakasuka kapag suot ko na) so the optometrist must really be someone highly experienced to give me the most appropriate lens prescription
And I'm happy I did because every penny I paid was all worth it!!! From eye check-up done via home service to free delivery of my new specs, it was an excellent customer service experience! You can schedule your own eye check-up at the comfort of your home! https://focalsight.shop/pages/mobilevisit
I highly recommend this to my Cebuano friends living in Cebu and Lapu-Lapu City especially if you are afraid to go out or cannot go out due to heightened Covid-19 restrictions. Don't let your eye suffer for so long. Have it checked before its too late!!!
STEP 1 : BOOK ONLINE. Click this link to visit the Focal Sight website https://focalsight.shop/pages/mobilevisit
STEP 2 : PERSONAL DETAILS AND SCHEDULE. Fill-in the booking form with your complete details. Select your preferred date and time. Click submit to confirm your request for a home service. The earliest time available for appointment is 9am while the last slot of the day is at 4pm.
STEP 3 : CONFIRMATION. You will receive an email confirmation and also someone from the Focal Sight team will contact via the mobile phone you indicated to finalize your booking. It's that easy actually!
Here's a screenshot of the confirmation for my online booking done thru their website.
Each consultation period is approximately 1 hour.
Based on what I experienced, they arrived on time and took a few minutes to set-up the portable optical box (PTB) and other items they brought. It's advisable for you to have the home service in your terrace or living room with access to a working socket because they will need to plug the PTB during the eye check-up.
STEP 5 : SETTLE THE BILL. Focal Sight accepts different mode of payments (Cash, Card, Bank Transfer and Gcash/e-wallets) that's why it's very convenient and hassle-free.
Compared to the eye check-up I had in a chain of optical shops located in a mall where I felt pressured by time and the service staff seems impatient for me to decide what I want, the Focal Sight Home Service gives me the the privilege of time and highly personalized service.
While I was fitting different frames, my friends who are hosting me here in Cebu also availed the opportunity to have their eyes checked without hassle in their respective hectic schedule.
I guess that's one of the beauty of having a home service because you can share the gift of eye care to those sharing the same roof with you. The 3 of us ended up getting our eyes checked and we're all highly satisfied with Focal Sight home service.
Ting was able to get an eye drop prescription to avoid her eye irritation while her husband Nigel was finally able to know his eye grade and have a solution for his blurry eyesight especially when driving. He placed an order for a specs with blue light blocker.
HOW DO I LOOK?!
The total consultation fee for the 3 of us was only Php 1,200! Yup, I received discount and that's a plus I really like from this experience aside from the fact that also have very convenient mode of payment options. My Gcash balance wasn't enough so I paid the consultation fee through mobile bank transfer to their BDO. This kind of payment method is really a big factor especially for people like me who are so used to cashless transactions already. The team left past 11am and they told me that our eyewear can be delivered in the same day but since we had to go somewhere, I instructed them to just deliver it the next day.
And they exceeded my expectation with excellent customer service!!!
Overall, I'm really wowed by the Focal Sight eye care service team.
They are very prompt in replying to my questions and as a brand marketer myself, I can say that they live up to their brand promise ---
AN EYE FOR EXCELLENCE
