Online shopping is the new norm. While some things are pretty straight forward and you get what you expect, custom fitted items can be a gamble. Glasses are definitely in the custom category. It’s helpful to know the differences when purchasing online glasses versus eyewear from your local retailer.

When you order a pair of prescription glasses online, they have not necessarily been checked by a qualified optician to confirm the correct power or fitting measurements. Canada doesn’t currently have any laws stipulating that an optician must verify your online eyewear, however in your local eyewear dispensary an optician or optometrist must check over your glasses before you put them on. For someone with a very low prescription, this may not be of much concern, however I think most people still want to see as clearly as possible. It’s certainly tempting to order those $50 glasses online, but be aware that the prescription may not be exactly as ordered.
The other obvious factor is frame fit. The temples and bridge need to be the correct size or your glasses will continually slide down your nose. If they’re too small or tight, you’ll end up with a headache. It’s tough to judge the size of a frame by a picture. Purchasing with the help of a licensed optician can help ensure your glasses fit well and feel comfy.

Another convenience of buying eyewear in person is the repair and warranty service. Most frames and lenses have a 2 year warranty from date of purchase for manufacturer defect. Parts usually take only a of couple days to come in.

Online shopping can be inexpensive and convenient, but purchasing with the help of a trained optician usually allows for more precision, accuracy and comfort. And remember, when you buy at a neighbourhood store you’re also helping the local economy and people in your community. If you’ve had experience buying online, we’d love to hear about it! http://fourthavenuevisioncentre.com/index.php

Are you an organ donor? Do you have the little red sticker on your health card indicating your wishes when you die? There is a shortage of organ donors in Saskatchewan, and corneas are in huge demand. You can give the gift of sight by making sure you are a donor. In Saskatchewan you must have the red sticker on your healthcard and make sure your family is aware of your wishes so that they can consent to allowing your body as a donor.
