We Ensure Prescription Accuracy

Getting an accurate prescription is absolutely essential for your comfort! When fitting you for glasses, one of the important measurements that's taken is the PD, or pupillary distance. This measurement helps determine where to place the center of each lens in your frames to completely customize the optics to your eyes. Determining the correct location for the bifocal, trifocal, or multifocal lens is also very complex and is best done by a trained professional!

The Health Of Your Eyes Is Our Priority

In 2011, the American Optometric Association published a study showing the drawbacks of ordering eyeglasses online. Out of 200 glasses ordered online:

  • Only 154 pairs were received
  • 44.8 percent had incorrect prescriptions or safety issues
  • 29 percent had at least one lens fail to meet required prescription
  • 19 percent of adult lenses and 25 percent of children’s lenses failed impact resistance testing

Similar issues have been found when buying contact lenses online. In fact, many of these purchases are made without a valid prescription, especially when buying decorative lenses. Whether your contacts are decorative or for vision correction, all contact lenses need to be properly fitted and prescribed by an eye doctor.

We Care About Our Patients

We understand the importance of finding the perfect frames to suit your unique lifestyle. The looks you choose are an expression of who you are! While it may be tempting to buy online, it’s important not to compromise safety or quality for perceived convenience. When you buy your glasses or contact lenses at a Vision Source® member's office, you’re guaranteed safe, high-quality products that last!

Thank you for your continued trust and loyalty!
