Scratch Resistant

There’s no such thing as scratch-proof lenses. (Even glass lenses can be scratched!) Scratches, while not likely to affect your lens performance, are an annoyance that can interfere with clear vision. That’s why you should always request scratch resistant lenses (treatment) for your eyeglass lenses.
 
Many of today’s lens products have hard scratch-resistant protection built into the lens—a hard surface treatment that is specifically designed to resist scratches. But it’s not an automatic feature! Be sure to discuss scratch resistant glasses options with your eye care professional.
 
We put our glasses through a lot from day to day—and our children, even more so. Scratch resistant lenses can go a long way toward minimizing the everyday wear and tear we put on our eyewear.

Lens care for scratch-resistant glasses

Don’t forget, no treatment can completely protect eyeglass lenses from scratches. But you can help out! Remember to keep your glasses in a cushioned, sturdy case when not wearing them. Clean them regularly with warm, soapy water and dry them with a clean, soft cloth. With scratches as with life, a little extra care goes a long, long way.

Dear Patients

We are open again to provide vision care. While many things have changed since then, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety. When we see you at your next appointment, things will be a little different.

We will ask some screening questions before your appointment. You will need an appointment to enter the office for any reason and wear a mask in the office. Appointments will be spaced out to allow for distancing between patients. That might mean less flexibility for scheduling your appointment but is necessary for your safety. Our frame area is different too, with “white glove” frame selection and disinfection of all frames that have been touched. All these procedures are designed to create the safest environment for you, other patients and our team.

As you can imagine, we have a long backlog of patients to reschedule and we will call patients back based on risk and needs. To make an appointment, please call our office at 519-822-2710.

Thank you for your patience and loyalty throughout this ordeal. We value your trust and can’t wait to welcome you back!
