Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I have an eye exam?
It is recommended that adults have an eye exam every 2 years. Comparatively, Children and seniors should be going every year. However, we can provide you with a sight test which is the exact same experience as an eye exam, but without testing the health of your eye. Above all, our sight tests are only $60 in comparison to comprehensive eye exams which can range anywhere from $120-$200. Although, we have continuous promotions on our sight tests.

Do I need blue-light protection glasses?

We offer high index prescription as well as non prescription blue light lenses, so come in and let us help you pick the right glasses for you!
Is it worth it to buy frames online?
Online shops do not measure your optical centre or properly cut out to your pupil distance as they are unable to see you in person. These measurements are paramount to delivering customized lenses for optimal vision which differ in every patient. Additionally, we can customize your lenses further by measuring your pantoscopic tilt, face form angle and vertex distance offering you the best vision.
