Scratch Resistant

There’s no such thing as scratch-proof lenses. (Even glass lenses can be scratched!) Scratches, while not likely to affect your lens performance, are an annoyance that can interfere with clear vision. That’s why you should always request scratch resistant lenses (treatment) for your eyeglass lenses.
 
Many of today’s lens products have hard scratch-resistant protection built into the lens—a hard surface treatment that is specifically designed to resist scratches. But it’s not an automatic feature! Be sure to discuss scratch resistant glasses options with your eye care professional.
 
We put our glasses through a lot from day to day—and our children, even more so. Scratch resistant lenses can go a long way toward minimizing the everyday wear and tear we put on our eyewear.

Lens care for scratch-resistant glasses

Don’t forget, no treatment can completely protect eyeglass lenses from scratches. But you can help out! Remember to keep your glasses in a cushioned, sturdy case when not wearing them. Clean them regularly with warm, soapy water and dry them with a clean, soft cloth. With scratches as with life, a little extra care goes a long, long way.

Dear Valued Patients,

We would like to clarify to our patients that despite the province-wide lockdown starting Thursday, December 24, our office is still open.  Patients who have appointments already booked will still be seen as scheduled.

We will continue to operate in a way that is in alignment with provincial guidelines and is designed to keep you and our staff safe while still allowing us to deliver the high standard of eye care you are accustom to.

Our doctors have modified their schedules to increase physical distancing. As a result, fewer appointments are available, and we are having to assign these appointments to people with immediate and greatest needs.

We will also be:

• Using telehealth appointments, when appropriate, to deliver care from a distance.

• Time in our Frame Gallery will be scheduled for patients to try on and choose eyewear.

• All eyewear adjustments, repairs, and pick-ups will be scheduled.

• Our doors will be closed as we will not be accepting walk-ins at this time.

• Contact lenses will continue to be shipped directly to patients.

We look forward to servicing our amazing community with all their eye care needs and thank you for supporting us as we navigate these unprecedented times.
