Eyeglass Frames & Sunglasses
There is so much more to choosing a pair of frames than just looking good. We will take the time to find the perfect fit and right style, considering your customized eyeglass prescription. We are pleased to offer a wide range of fashion eyewear for our patients.
We carry a large selection of high quality fashion frames and prescription & non-prescription sunglassesIt is important to protect your eyes against damage from the sun. The sun emits many different types of light including harmful ultraviolet light rays. UV light rays carry more energy than visible light rays, so the eye is at a greater risk of damage from absorbing this type of light. UV light absorption by the eye can cause, or speed up the progress of several diseases that affect the eye, such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Most of the damage caused by UV rays happens over a long period of time and cannot be reversed. A pair of good quality prescription or non-prescription sunglasses will ensure your eyes are being protected with more than 1000 frames on display, so you can be assured that you’ll find something that fits your needs! Our experienced staff can also assist in the selection of safety glasses from our OnGuard and ArmouRx collection.

Modern On-Site Lab
At our Barrie location, we have a complete lens finishing lab on premises. By using computerized state of the art lens fabricating systems, we can create beautiful and precise eyewear for our patients.
The heart of the lab is based on the NIDEK patternless lens edger and frame tracing system. The edger is driven by the latest in computer software, allowing for precision never before possible. The ‘frame tracer’ measures the frame size and shape at hundreds of individual points ‘allowing for very precise accuracy in size and shape of the prescription lenses being fabricated. Almost all lens types and frame creations can be processed with this lab system.
