Our expertise + handpicked frames + quality lenses = A never before experience.
Every individual is unique and hence the type/design of corrective lenses needed is different. Glasses don't fall in the category of "One size fits all"; they need to be customized to suit patient's needs.
The "perfect pair" of glasses requires a perfect harmony between the lens and the frame. We've lost count of how many patient's we have seen who were unsatisfied with their previous glasses. Reason? Either wrong lens choice, or wrong frame choice or both.
The journey of the "perfect pair" of glasses starts with picking out the frame which is best suited for the patient's face shape and prescription. Some prescriptions require bigger, deeper frames whereas for other prescriptions deeper frames are contraindicated. We take care of that so that our patients get an uncompromising vision and comfort. Then comes discussing needs of the patient to find the right lens. After that we take precise measurements to ensure that the final product gives you the best vision, comfort and clarity. This ensures that you not only look fabulous in your new eyewear but you also experience the best vision possible.
high-tech on-site lab, which consists of high precision instruments that are accurate to a 1/100th of a millimeter, enabling us to customize the lens shape/size as per client's requirements to provide unmatched vision and comfort to the wearer.
Not only does the on-site lab provides higher precision and accuracy, it enables to us to deliver the glasses same day for most prescriptions, even in an hour for some prescriptions.
We take pride in what we do and hence we back our glasses with industry leading warranty for our customers' peace of mind.
