Glasses are not a luxury. Seeing clearly is a necessity. My mission as an optician is to make glasses affordable for all. I am absolutely certain that people should be prioritized over profits.
My approach is based on 3 core principles: honesty, simplicity and solidarity. I offer an opportunity to save on an essential purchase while allowing clients to give back to the community. How do I do it? With an innovative business model and thanks to the passion of people working in community organizations.

1_ TAKE AN EYE EXAM WITH AN OPTOMETRIST
An optician is basically the pharmacist of glasses. We work with your prescription. That’s why you need to first take an eye exam with an optometrist (any will do). Their code of ethics (Section 3 – Freedom of choice) requires them to give you your prescription if you ask for it.
With your medicare card, the basic exam is free for children 17 and under as well as adults over 65. Normally, it’s around $100. It might also be covered by your insurance. More details in our FAQ section..
