On-Site Edging Lab
Our office has a complete on-site edging lab, allowing us to execute the edging required for a large number of plastic lenses.
We carry in stock a large variety of single vision lenses with scratch resistant and reflection free lenses. Our large ophthalmic dispensary also stocks a wide selection of designer frames and sunglasses. This allows us to fill most simple eyeglass prescriptions within one hour. The edging lab is made up of three pieces of electronic equipment. Each lens is checked throughout the process for quality control. The edging process begins with a form tracer that will trace the shape and size of your frame which will ensure that your lens is well positioned inside the frame. The edger then cuts the lens to specification, and after a final inspection, the lens is fitted into your frame.
There are a lot of considerations when choosing frames and lenses: weight, appearance, vision requirements, types of metals, types of plastic or glass. The list goes on and on. The staff, who are fully Canadian Certified Optometric Assistants are up-to-date on the latest materials, styles and colours and can assist you with choosing a frame.
