Optical Questions And Answers

What Should I Look For When Buying
A New Pair Of Glasses?

Fit, function, and fashion should all be considered when choosing a pair of glasses!  The frame should fit the face well in the width and especially at the bridge.  Glasses that are pinching at the temples or sliding down the face will be a nuisance to wear.  What function are the glasses used for?  Are these glasses for reading or for sports?  Are they for progressives lenses, and if so, are the frames large enough?  Taking into account what the glasses are used for will help us find the appropriate frame and lens choice for you.  Last but not least, we consider fashion!  We want you to look good in your new glasses.  The frames should flatter your face shape and enhance your appearance.  The material of the frame, as well as the color and shape, are considered.  You should look good, see well and be comfortable with your new glasses.

Do Vision Insurances Cover Designer Frames? Is It Worth Spending More?

Designer frames, when paired with prescription lenses, are covered by vision insurance. If you don’t have full coverage for the entire order, you can pay the remaining balance yourself.

Do You Carry Unique Frames Or Are They The Same As Other Opticals?

We do carry lines of unique designer eyewear. We don't make bulk orders of a single style, thus less chance of you wearing the same frame as others.

Depending on what the glasses will be used for, you might choose an anti-reflective coating or extra tough scratch resistant coating for your lenses.  Our computer users may ask for a blue light filter.  You may want the Transitions lens that darkens with sun exposure.  There are many lens options for each person.

At Sheridan Optometric Centre, we understand that children are often rough on their glasses.  Our office offers a 1-year warranty on breakage of children’s frames.  Our adult’s frames also carry a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.

At Sheridan Optometric Centre, we have our own in-office lab where we carry a wide range of single vision prescriptions complete with coatings.  As a result, we can offer the option to complete your glasses order within one day if we carry your prescription in stock.  Otherwise, other single vision prescriptions can be ready within a few days, and multifocal or sunglass prescriptions can be ready within 7-10 business days.

The lenses chosen for patients who spend a lot of time in front of the computer is very important. There are also options to upgrade your lens to include technology to minimize the amount of blue wavelength exposure emitted from screens such as computer monitors and tablets.
