Some people say that they buy cheap reading glasses because they “only need them to read”. Think about that logic for a minute: you only need them to read.
You get what you pay for:
When a whole pair of reading glasses only costs $1.00 – $10.00 at the dollar or drug store, some concerns come to mind. What potentially harmful chemicals are in the cheaply made frame that is touching your head? Could those toxins leech out of the frame into your bloodstream and brain? What could the potential distortions, lack of clarity, and glare from low priced, ill fitting lenses do to your vision? Your eyes communicate directly with your brain –how do those distortions affect your brain?
‘One size fits all’ does not apply to your vision:
If you are not comfortable trusting your eyes to pre-fabricated readers that are made of standardized molded lenses with a ‘one size fits all’ mentality, come see us for the made-to-measure alternative: custom reading glasses. We can make you reading glasses according to your doctor’s prescription, matched to your pupillary distance measurement, with quality lenses and frames for visual and physical comfort.
Quality lenses make a difference:
Customized lenses with anti-glare coating will give you comfortable vision with less glare, which is especially important when using smart phones and tablets. Good quality, custom reading lenses are medical devices. They are therapy for your eyes. What do you think poor quality lenses do to your eyes?
Quality frames make a difference:
Our selection of high quality frames are able to be adjusted properly and hold the adjustment. In addition to the inability of cheap readers to be properly adjusted, there are no opticians at these stores to help you pick the right power of lens, or to adjust the frames for you.
We offer opthalmic grade half-eye frames, which are designed with the proper temple length for reading and seeing above the lens, as well as a beautiful selection of reader-friendly frames.
It is possible to have a nice pair of custom reading glasses made and serviced at Visions of Canada without breaking the bank. Often, we can have them ready the same day.
Do you live far away? We have a process for preparing you for your personal fitting at one of our stores: please fill out our Client Preparation Form and we will contact you for your initial consultation.
After all, you only need them to read.
