Did you know....
Two independent studies that were published in September 2011 and June 2012 found that between 44.8% and 94% of prescription eyeglasses purchased in Canada and the USA had incorrect prescriptions, and/or did not meet ISO or ANSI safety or optical standards that are required in North America by any and all providers of prescription eyewear.
For this reason, we always recommend to our patients, that if they choose to obtain their prescription glasses from a retailer or provider other than our office, that they bring their new glasses back to us for verification. We will verify that the prescription is correct, that there are no warpages or distortions, that the lenses are appropriately centred and positioned (especially important for stronger prescriptions and invisible bifocals), and that various other lens parameters are within acceptable standards. All of this is done at no charge to you, and only takes a few minutes.
One more reason why...."We Care, You'll See!"
