The ocular experts at Vision Clinic assess eyesight and stock their boutique shelves with frames from names including Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, and Alain Mikli. Devoted to creating eyewear that suits the wearer’s lifestyle, the staff consults with each client to ensure lenses withstand prolonged staring at computer screens or prolonged staring matches with younger siblings. Once frames are selected, technicians keep them fitting with complimentary adjustments and onsite repairs.
Vision Clinic’s attentive care stretches beyond its shop doors—the practice provides prescription eyewear and exams for the local community. The company also makes frequent contributions to a number of charitable organizations.

It was Scott Catton?s father who opened the first two-for-one optical store in Ontario in 1989. It was called Wholesale Vision, and the glasses sold there were crafted at the lens-manufacturing facility onsite. The company may have changed its name to iVision in 2000, and it may have a new president?Scott?but it still offers two-for-one specs, perfect for those who misplace things or for for people like Superman, who need to completely change their identity in a hurry. iVision also still manufactures all of its lenses in-house. These lenses go on to fill regular frames as well as frames from designer brands such as Ray-Ban, Hugo Boss, Prada, and Gucci.
Purba Vision began as the dream of Jai Jassal, who founded the company in 2006. In a few short years, the original lone optical boutique blossomed into five separate locations where licensed optometrists perform thorough eye exams, checking for ocular issues such as glaucoma and colour blindness. Clients can also browse each location’s selection of hand-picked frames from around the world—a collection that includes work by Prada, Ralph Lauren, and Hugo Boss.
Subscribing to one of Coco Chanel’s credos, “fashion is not something that exists in dresses only,” the ocular experts in charge of Eyestar Optical outfit their display racks with glasses that aren’t just functional, but also stylish. While available brands vary by location, many frames come from high-end designers such as Gucci, Prada, and Tom Ford, which can subtly complement elegant outfits or add dramatic flair to overall looks. In addition to boosting fashion cred, select locations offer eye exams to suss out any current or impending eye-related maladies, as well as contact-lens fittings for those uninterested in wearing glasses or welding together two monocles.
Vincent Optical's registered opticians fit frames to heads from a selection of dozens of brands, including names such as Oakley, Gucci, and Ray-Ban. They nestle lenses—from reading glasses to prescription cuts—into the frames, or prescribe boxes full of contact lenses, readily available in their store. They also sell sunglasses, excellent for protecting eyesight from harmful radiation and correcting the vision of those who have trouble looking cool.
