We offer a wide variety of frame selection from multiple brands widely regarded in the optical industry. The majority of our eyeglass frames are either from Japan or of European origin, all of superb quality and with full industry warranties.
The main supplier of lenses we use is Essilor. As the world's largest lens manufacturer and the inventor of progressive lenses, the French-based company has lens-manufacturing facilities all over the world, including Vancouver. With a full range of product, from single vision to progressive lenses, and a multitude of coating options, Essilor is our primary choice as a prescription lens supplier. Another supplier of lenses we use is Centennial Optical. This smaller, Canadian-based lens company provides pre-made lenses with a wide prescription range for single-vision needs.
We carry a large selection of prescription soft contact lenses from numerous brands. While Alcon is our most frequently used brand, other brands such as Bausch & Lomb, CooperVision, and Johnson & Johnson are also available. For prescriptions that are not covered by the primary soft lens manufacturers, we also have access to other custom soft contact lens and rigid gas-permeable lens manufacturers.
We carry a fantastic selection of sun/sport glasses, including Zeal, Maui Jim, Adidas and more, made to your prescription. Our Zeal sunglass line is made from plant-based resins and features a patented MyFit technology, which allows you to adjust them up, down, left or right, letting you define your perfect fit.
Contact Lens Fittings / Health Exam
We are trained in optics, eye health, and anatomy, and understands the importance of educating patients about their contact lenses – as well as fitting and dispensing contact lenses. We will recommend the contact lens best suited to your lifestyle, your visual needs, and your eye health requirements. Once the type and modality of contact lens is selected, we will provide complete training on insertion and removal of contact lenses, the best way to clean and store lenses, and a wearing and replacement schedule as necessary.
We offer the most popular brands, and provide trial pairs to take home at the time of your appointment once all qualifications of training are met.
Frame repairs and adjustments
We are equipped to fit, adjust or repair your current glasses on site, and usually provide such minor adjustments and repairs. We traditionally ask for donations to BC Children's Hospital or a minor fee as payment. Any intensive repairs, we can recommend alternative solutions or refer outside to a capable repair centre.
