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.
