What We Do Differently
Your glasses should reflect your style and personality.
Finding that perfect frame either takes a lot of trial and error, or it takes an experienced dispenser with a keen eye – someone who can translate that vague idea you have in your head of what your glasses should look like on you. That can only come from person to person conversation and connection.
On top of that, proper glasses lens selection takes into account:
If you need high index lenses and which index is best suited for your prescription
The size of your glasses frames.
What your primary use is for the glasses.
How much you use a computer.
Whether you need blue light blocking lenses.
Whether you need freeform lenses.
Whether you need a reading relief prescription.
Options for outdoor use.
A separate pair of prescription sunglasses.
Transitions lenses that darken in sunlight.
Office or desk lenses for optimized intermediate and/or near vision.
All of these choices matter. Proper measurements can help ensure your lenses are centered and that the focal power is at the right height in the lens for your needs.
Let us worry about the technical details, so you can focus on getting a great new pair of glasses.
How It Works:
Our ophthalmic dispensers will do a virtual consultation with you over a video call (Zoom or Facetime).
In this consultation, our dispenser will guide you through the available frames and narrow down a selection of 5 to 7 frames that match your face shape and personal style.
Once your frames have been selected, we will arrange a date and time that works best for us to deliver your chosen frames to your doorstep.
You and your family will have a private viewing of your selected eyewear. While you try on your frames, our dispenser will virtually consult with you to help you make a final decision.
After you’ve chosen your new eyewear, we will take your measurements digitally and collect the frames to complete your order.
The finished glasses will be delivered to your home!
This will all be done with the utmost care to ensure frames are disinfected, and dropoff and pickup will be contactless. We value your safety and health as much as we value your need to see clearly and comfortably.

Get New Glasses When You Need Them
Our optical dispensers have years of experience in finding the right glasses with the right lenses for you. And of course, we will always be nearby if you have any issues along the way.
We understand that life is busy, and it isn’t always convenient to take time out of your workday to visit your optometrist. To help serve you better, we offer Saturday appointments and have extended hours on Thursdays.
