In a world without glasses, a poor-sighted person could only read a billboard by scaling the attached ladder or hiring a biplane to trans-sky-write it. See signs for what they really are with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $150 toward a complete set of prescription glasses at iVision, valid at all 12 area locations. All glasses purchased at iVision come with a complimentary second set of glasses or contact lenses for yourself, or you can choose to share a pair with a friend or family member for no extra charge.
With thousands of frames available, the family-owned iVision continues a 20-year history by bringing each customer's blurry vision into precision focus. Spectacle seekers can search through the stock of frames ($125–$350+) until their eyelashes flutter approvingly at a set from the in-house brand or designer brands such as Ray Ban, Hugo Boss, Prada, and Gucci. For no extra charge, lens experts skillfully insert premium HD free form or single vision lenses into each purchased frame, calibrating the lenses to the customer's prescription. Additionally, a second set of the chosen glasses comes free with each purchase. Patrons not in need of the additional eyewear can have their extra spectacles made to a friend's, family member's, or needy hawk's prescription.
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.
