SynergEyes is continuing to manufacture and ship products on time. We have instituted multiple new procedures and policies designed to keep our employees safe so we can continue to supply contact lenses to eye care professionals and their patients.
We created two new programs in April. First, SynergEyes is offering free 90-day supply of SimplifEyes 1Day lenses to front-line workers including doctors, nurses, paramedics and other front-line workers. This offer requires a prescription from an eye care professional that is prescribing SimplifEyes 1Day. This offer is limited to 100 patients.
The second program is an "Need to Reorder: Order Fulfillment Program" that connects patients with their doctors to facilitate reordering of hybrid, sceral or soft contact lenses. A patient fills out a form on the SynergEyes website and SynergEyes will attempt to contact the eye care provider to assist in ordering and shipping the lenses. If we are successful in reaching the eye care provider, he or she will contact the patient about payment and SynergEyes will ship the lenses directly to the patient. If we can't reach the eye care professional after five days, we will notify the patient.
SynergEyes is shipping contact lenses directly to a patient’s home, when directed by the eye care professional. Contact customer care or consultation and provide the patient's shipping information. SynergEyes is continuing to waive the additional $6.00 fee for shipping directly to patients.
SynergEyes is continuing to manufacture and ship products on time. We have changed shipping carriers to United States Postal Service (USPS) which provides features that will help practices manage their incoming mail. Go to USPS.com to the "Informed Delivery' and click on Track and Manage. Once signed up to this free service, you will start to receive emails that identify what has been sent to your address.
If the package has not been delivered, you will have options to do the following:
- Reroute the package
- Reschedule a delivery to a different time
- Place mail on hold
- Intercept the package (there is a fee for this)
If you have limited coverage in your office, you may want to use this free service to insure delivery of contact lenses to your practice.
SynergEyes is also offering direct patient shipments. Let our team know the address and we will send the contact lenses directly to the patient.
In an effort to reduce costs to doctors and patients, SynergEyes has reduced shipping to a flat rate of $5.00 for all reorders or "rainy day lenses" when shipped to a practice or directly to a patient through April 30, 2020.
Effective March 20th, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued a California order for all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence.
SynergEyes is located in Carlsbad, California and is considered an essential health service. The company is continuing to produce and ship with new procedures in place.
In the past week, we have reconfigured our manufacturing, shipping process and staffing in accordance with the guidelines suggested by the CDC. We’ve instituted new procedures that make sure we have social distancing between people, both in the manufacturing building as well as in logistics. Workspaces are reconfigured, shifts staggered and there is an increased cleaning regime.
As of today, Friday, March 20th, SynergEyes is continuing to ship lenses to California eye care providers. SynergEyes ships directly to a patient’s home, when directed by the eye care professional. Contact customer care or consultation and provide the patient shipping information. SynergEyes is waiving the additional $6.00 fee for shipping directly to patients.
SynergEyes is shipping by USPS. If there is a package in transit, click the link below to track or reschedule your shipments.
Living with uncertainty is never easy. Today, the ever-evolving situation regarding COVID-19 has required that we address some day-to-day activities and policies that directly impact your customer experience and we want you to be aware of the changes we are making.
We recognize that we need to do our part in reducing the transmission of Covid-19 and protect doctors, patients and SynergEyes employees. Effective Monday, March 23rd, our field team of Regional Account Managers will be working from home. Your connection to your Inside Account Managers, Customer Care and Consultation Teams will not be interrupted as they too will be working remotely. Your entire SynergEyes support team will be easily accessible and actively assisting you with the same level of attention, care and concern for your business needs that you are accustomed to. (See contact and other information below).
We have reconfigured our manufacturing, shipping process and staffing in accordance with the guidelines suggested by the CDC. Production continues and SynergEyes lenses are shipping as scheduled. Barring mandatory orders by local, state or national government, we plan to continue production.
We have made the following updates to US and Canada policies to help in the difficult time.
We will be extending lens warranties for orders shipped between January 15, 2020, and March 15, 2020. These orders will have warranties extended until May 31, 2020.
Shipments directly to your patients will be made available and we are waiving the additional customary fee of $6.00 for this service. (Standard shipping costs still apply.)
The SynergEyes VS lenses are continuing to be manufactured and shipped on schedule. Upon your request SynergEyes will ship lenses directly to patients.
As this situation remains fluid, we will reevaluate these policies mid-May. Please contact your Account Manager or the Customer Care team if you have questions or need additional information.
Our commitment to being a Customer Centric organization means that we view you as much more than just a customer or an account number associated with an order. We honor the partnerships we’ve established with all of you and look forward to doing all we can to further strengthen those partnerships. Thank you for your support of SynergEyes products and for entrusting us to provide the best vision solutions for your patients.
Living with uncertainty may never be easy. However, amid this uncertainty, you can be sure that SynergEyes will be here for you. With our deepest concerns and utmost sincerity, the entire SynergEyes Team wishes you and your loved ones health, safety and peace of heart as together, we move toward what we all hope to be a swift resolution to this situation.
