Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to make an appointment to come in and try on some eyeglasses?


How much are my glasses going to cost?

Each prescription is different,  when you come in, we would be more than happy to assess your eyeglass prescription,  then based on frame selection,  power and type of lens you require we can give you an estimate. We do carry a full selection of eyewear to suit every budget.

Note - estimates cannot be given over the phone

Can I use my own frames, and put my new prescription into them?  Will I have to be without my glasses?

Yes, you can use your own frame, provided they are in good condition.  You will not have to be without your glasses. Once we have your lenses, we require only half an hour to cut the lenses and fit them into your existing frame.

Do you do eye exams?

Why should I bother to get an eye exam when I can buy eyeglasses right off the shelf ?

Buying your eyeglasses off the shelf in a drug store is a big no no. You really need to go see an eye doctor and get an exact prescription for your eyes. Buying the wrong size eyeglasses or the wrong prescription can lead to a host of other problems. You have to be fitted properly with your  lenses. Also many people will have a different prescription for each eye. Buying the wrong eyeglasses can lead to further eye strain and constant headaches.
