Blurry vision is not just an annoyance; it’s a health risk. So when the owners of Optiks International and Factory Optical saw a chance to vertically integrate their business model—and cut down time between an eye exam and obtaining glasses—they jumped on it. The optometrists inside their chain offer the convenience of one-stop lens shopping. Technicians can create custom-fitted standard, progressive, and googly-eye lenses. The labs constantly seek out the latest technologies to improve vision, including digital lenses that decrease peripheral distortion and custom cuttings that alter lenses to accommodate the tilt of chosen frames.
Each store stocks a supply of more than 4,000 frames, including options from designer brands such as Oakley, Gucci, Versace, Ray-Ban, Guess, Prada, Dior, Dolce and Gabbana, Michael Kors, and Marc by Marc Jacobs. Every store also offers a two-for-one deal for each pair of prescription glasses sold, allowing clients to give a pair of glasses to a family member or pair their purchase with prescription sunglasses to avoid darkening regular specs with a whiteboard marker when leaving the house.
Inside Venus Eye Boutique's space, marked by sleek displays and dark-wood panelling, customers peruse a large selection of 100 per cent Canadian-designed eyewear from the boutique's eponymous line of frames. Men, women, and children can find new, attractive eyewear in the store, and staff educates each patron on frame and lens type to ensure perfectly fitted and functioning sight.
Dr. Sam Dhaliwal and Dr. Charanjit Sihota of Eyes on 34th help patients clear up blurry vision, diagnosing eye problems and providing comprehensive exams and one-hour lab turnover with myriad services. Once they determine how to enhance vision, they can dole out contact lenses or fit faces in designer frames from brands such as Dior, Gucci, and Ray-Ban. These frames and designer sunglasses line the glass perimeter of Eyes' sun-flooded practice, perfect conditions for peepers to grow from grass watered with eye drops.
Dr. Annu Kaul, a practicing optometrist for more than 18 years, and her staff at Urban Optik pair their clients with fashionable frames from brands such as Tom Ford, Roberto Cavalli, and Paul Frank. With lenses from single vision to progressive, they also specialize in creating solutions to address eye conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts.
FYidoctors is Canada's newest and most unique concept in eye care and eye wear. We promise exceptional patient eye care by our team of doctors and staff, industry leading lens technology which will leave you saying "I can't believe the difference", and a wide selection of premium and exclusive frames from which to choose.
Eye Care Group emphasizes the importance of regular checkups and general vision health. In addition to testing visual acuity and latent x-ray vision, the team also screens for conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism as well as diabetes and glaucoma.
Ensuring that eyes remain healthy is only half of Eye Care Group's mission, though—the staff also keeps its patients looking stylish with the newest designer frames. To keep their inventory of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses at its trendiest, the Koppé family travels to international eyewear shows in Paris, New York, and other fashion-conscious cities, procuring the latest in reading, computer, and progressive eyewear, and sunglasses.
