A Chat with Bonavista Optics Inc
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We offer private appointments for a personalized eyewear and contact lens fitting, as we are lifestyle dispensers. We carry the latest in high tech/high style optical , from Bespoke Eyewear to everyday Eyewear and eye care needs. We also do Portrait Photography with Virtual Background technology.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
In the optical industry since 1980 I saw a gap in the service aspect, often with the consumer not getting what they need or love. I want to assist in educating the consumer on what is available to them. Dispensing eyewear in a relaxing environment allows time to get the right product and fitting.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to see a client's face when I tell them they can draw a frame and I can get it made to fit them perfectly. I love it when someone sees clearly for the first time. I love it when clients learn I can have lenses made for their wearable device, athletic goggle & other new optical applications.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Without a doubt it's when a child saw their mom clearly for the first time and there were tears all around.
