A Message From Our Founder To The Consumer
With over 25 years of experience, we have witnessed the optical industry go through numerous changes. And today I wanted to take a moment to discuss: buying prescription glasses on the internet.
If you purchase eyewear online, you are sacrificing the quality and fit of what is considered by the U.S. F.D.A. to be a Class 1 medical device. This has been a cause for concern in the eye health industry.
In a research study conducted by the Vision Council, researchers found that of the 200 pairs of eyeglasses received 44.8% of them had incorrect prescriptions or safety issues outside of standardized guidelines.
Several pairs had wrong lens types. And even more alarming, was the fact that 23% of adult eyeglasses and 29% of children’s failed to meet impact test standards.
Today, advancements in technology have allowed the consumer to have far more choices in eyeglasses, and especially, lenses, which vary in type, finish, and preference; for example multi-focal purpose lenses. So, whether you are an architect, pilot, mechanic, musician, or an avid reader each profession can demand a specific lens type.
And who is best to help you weed through all these choices than a person who has dedicated their profession to fit you with the best combination of eyewear and lenses. It is truly an art to achieve optimal comfort and function from your eyewear.
