HOW DOES IT WORK?
You've come to the best place to save on glasses in Montreal and southern Quebec. With our innovative business model, we offer inexpensive, quality eyewear to everyone, without exception.The quality of our service is top priority and has helped build our great reputation.
Here's what you need to know about how we work:
1_ GET YOUR EYES EXAMINED BY AN OPTOMETRIST
Unfortunately, as opticians, we don't do eye exams.
An optician is basically the pharmacist of glasses. We get to work once we get your prescription. That’s why the first step is to get your eyes examined by an optometrist (any optometrist will do). Their code of ethics (Section 3 – Freedom of choice) states that, if you ask for it, they must give you a copy of your prescription.
With a Medicare card, the basic exam is free for children 17 and under as well as for adults over 65. Eye exams might also be covered by your insurance. More details in our FAQ section.
2_ VISIT ONE OF OUR SERVICES POINTS
We have more than 65 service points.
We make weekly stops at a number of community organizations in Montreal and its surrounding areas. Check out our schedule and go to the one that suits you best. Please note that some service points, such as our headquarters Les Portes Orange, are by appointment only!
