For in store orders, we can make most single vision prescription glasses in as little as 30 minutes. For higher prescriptions, transitions, polarized, safety or progressive lens we typically quote 10 days, but will do our best to make them faster.
For online orders, it depends on what type of glasses you order, and where you live. Single vision and readers are made same day and can often be shipped the same day. Depending on Canada Post, we expect you might receive these in 3-5 days from when the order is placed. For progressive style lenses, bifocals, light adaptive lenses, safety glasses and polarized sunglasses we quote 7-10 days.
Note that we cannot start your order until we receive your glasses prescription. It can be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We use Canada Post to ship all orders. If another carrier is required, please contact customer service at email@example.com
Please note that contact lenses cannot be shipped to PO boxes at this time.

We take your health and that of our employees very serious. We have implemented several policies to help ensure this. Our stores provide optical services which fall under the jurisdiction of the Alberta College and Association of Opticians and the Saskatchewan College of Opticians. In addition to implementing all required standards we clean then disinfect all of our frames with UV light after they have been touched. Please help us by placing any glasses you handle in the provided shopping trays.
