Selecting a frame is more than just finding something that fits. It’s about finding something you LOVE. Our expert team will work with you and take the time to find a frame that makes you feel like YOU.
Selecting the best lenses for your vision and protection can sometimes seem daunting. Our team of professionals will help you navigate the choices available so you can feel confident and happy with your lenses.
We offer regular adjustments and maintenance for your Nuvo specs for as long as you own them! There is no charge for this service, however, we do encourage patients to leave a donation (of any amount) for Optometry Giving Sight.
BUT, WHERE DO I START?
Everything starts with a conversation with a frame stylist/Optician. They are trained to help you navigate the large selection of frames and lenses, and bring attention to things such as the size and weight of the frame and your prescription requirements.
WHAT TO CONSIDER BEFORE PURCHASING
Computers and smart phones
The way we use our eyes has changed. Technology is literally at our fingertips. Screens, small print, and computer usage are all affecting our vision and eye strain, and there are options available for you. From custom lenses made for extended computer use to special coatings that help alleviate eye fatigue, we can help!
Blue light protection
Blue light is High Energy Visible (HEV) wavelengths that flicker more easily than longer, weaker wavelengths. This kind of flickering creates glare that can reduce visual contrast and affect sharpness and clarity. It can also contribute to eyestrain, headaches, physical and mental fatigue caused by hours of sitting in front of a computer or other electronic devices. Read more about #bluelightexposed here. »
Transition lenses are adaptive to indoor and outdoor light! This awesome technology allows you to have clear lenses indoors and tinted ones outdoors! There are various colours available, and they provide 100% UVA/UVB protection. No need to switch eyewear from inside to outside! Awesome!
Did you know there is protective (Rx-able!) eyewear available for sports? Nuvo carries various styles paired with speciality lenses that offer great protection and visual solutions for any athlete playing sports of all intensities. Prescription sports goggles are also available. Visit us today!
Sun lenses should always offer 100% UVA/UVB protection, to keep your eyes safe from the advert effects of sun rays (corneal burns are a real thing). They also often serve as a protective barrier from the outside elements. In windy conditions, they help keep eyes moist and comfortable and prevent windblown particles from entering the eye. This is especially important for contact wearers. Consult with one of our Opticians today and find the best fit for you! Polarized lenses are also available!
Whether you’re buying multiple pairs of clear lenses, sun lenses or a combination of both, you can take advantage of our multiple pair discounts. You don’t have to sacrifice great quality for irresistible pricing! Visit our optical team with your valid prescription and we’ll go over all your options.
Single vision lenses correct one field of vision, either for far distances or for near distances. They also correct different levels of astigmatism.
Computer lenses correct vision for— you’ve got it— computer distances! It is a great option for those working in front of a screen for long hours.
Progressives correct multiple levels of vision. A gradual change in power from top to bottom provides clear vision for all distances.
