Glasses and Eyeware

Eyewear

Corrective eyeglasses are one way to obtain clear vision, reduce eyestrain and visual fatigue, as well for many people - an important fashion accessory.

There are many choices when it comes to where to buy your spectacles.

Compare ’Apples to Apples’. If Spectacles are something you use every day, it is best to buy good quality, fashionable frames. It is the quality of the optics of the lens that allows the clear and comfortable vision.

A fashionable frame that compliments your face is also very important. People look at one another directly in the fact moreso than they look at someone’s shoes or a piece of clothing.

There is the misconception that good quality eyewear is available everywhere. There are many opticals that carry poor quality products. Be wary of the product quality at places that claim ’free’ lenses or frame deals.

If you think it sounds too good to be true - you’re probably right!

If you compare the same products (same frame, same lens) you will find that prices are lower at an optometrist’s office than anywhere else. However, because optometrists don’t advertise, consumers are often unaware that obtaining spectacles are less expensive there.

Remember that value includes quality as well as price. Our Stratford Optometry Office carries a great variety of quality frames, lenses and lens coatings.
