choosing a new pair of glasses

Is this your first time purchasing glasses? Never fear, The Vision Gallery is here to help nervous or new buyers of corrective lenses with our handy 4-step guide to getting a new pair of glasses. Read on for more!

Step 1: The Prescription

Visit your preferred optometrist and have them complete an eye exam. They will then provide you with an up to date prescription, necessary for any pair of corrective lenses. If you do not have an eye doctor, consider one of the experienced medical professionals here at The Vision Gallery- remember, you are not obligated to buy eyewear after receiving a prescription at that location.

Step 2: Choose Your Frames

Come visit one of our locations and let our licensed opticians show you the large selection at The Vision Gallery. They will help you select a frame based on your personal preferences: style, shape, colour, material and many other details.  Our Staff will make sure they fit properly to maximize comfort.

Step 3: Customize Your Lenses

By now, a Vision Gallery professional will have walked you through your needs, preferences and lifestyle- not only does this help narrow down frames, it also identifies the type of lenses and coatings you require. Your prescription will determine the base type and thickness of lens, though you can invest in add-ons that can increase durability, reduce weight and even eliminate glare.

Step 4: Customer Satisfaction

The transaction isn’t over when you walk out the door- in fact, your first few days with your new glasses are crucially important to the entire process. When you are getting used to a new pair of spectacles, pay attention to their fit, feel and clarity.  If any adjustments need to be made, just return to one of our locations for a routine tune up.   The experts here at Vision Gallery are not satisfied until our customers are 100% comfortable in their new frames.

That’s it! Four simple stages from squinting to sightseeing- and the team here at Vision Gallery is with you every step of the way. If you have any questions or concerns, contact or visit us today for a no obligation consultation.
