Eye Glasses Calgary Why You Should Never Buy Eyeglasses Online

An eye doctor can deliver medical expertise, customer care, a better glasses fit, and provide adjustments.


Recently a trend has developed in the eye care world: buying eyeglasses from online stores rather than ordering them through your trusted and professional eye doctor.

While these sites may claim to have incredible prices and convenient delivery methods, the disadvantages of ordering your eyeglasses online can be very significant and can potentially harm your vision.

At Sunridge Eye Clinic, we offer great customer service, comprehensive eye-exams and accurate filling in of prescriptions, making our eye doctors far superior to any online service.

4 Reasons Why You Should Buy Your Eyeglasses From An Eye Doctor

Today, almost anything can be bought online including your prescription glasses. And while online shopping does come with its advantages, here are a few reasons why you should ALWAYS buy your eyeglasses from a trusted and professional eye doctor.

1. Customer Service & Patient Care

To an online eyeglasses store, you may be a faceless consumer. t Sunridge Eye Clinic, you are a valued customer in our care. The aim of our eye doctors is not to sell you a product but to help safeguard your long term eye-health and vision comfort.

We offer a wide range of vision services including glaucoma testing, dry eye care and children’s eye exams, to ensure that all of our patients, no matter their age, look and see their best.

2. Great Eyeglasses Fit

A properly fitting pair of eyeglasses is crucial to ensuring you can see correctly and comfortably. In some cases, choosing improperly fitted eyeglasses online can make viewing through your lenses difficult or even impossible.

An eye doctor will go to great lengths to find the type of frame that will be most comfortable and provide you with the best vision.

This is done by taking into consideration:

  • Your face shape
  • The position of the frame
  • The way your lenses will look and feel in certain frames
  • What part of the lens your eyes will be looking through (important for bifocals.)

Our Calgary eye doctors have the knowledge and expertise to provide you with a wide range of eyeglass options and ensure that the frame you choose fits you correctly, protecting your vision and helping you see more clearly.

3. Prescription Adjustment

Sometimes when we get new eyeglasses, small changes in the prescription of the lenses may be required due to issues such as getting used to the prescription or maybe your vision isn’t quite clear enough.

Unlike an online store, our eye doctors are happy to recheck your prescription and make any needed changes to your eyeglasses so that you can continue to see clearly and comfortably for many years to come.

**Get it right the first time!**

A professional, trained and educated eye doctor is more likely to fill in your prescription correctly the first time and fix it if there is a mistake. This may not be the case with an online retailer whose training is sales-oriented and whose ultimate goal is to sell you products instead of taking care of your vision.

 

4. Repairs and Frame Adjustments

Qualified eye doctors understand how invaluable it is to have a comfortably fitting pair of eyeglasses. If yours don’t fit right (loose nosepads, missing screws, misalignment) your eye doctor has the knowledge and expertise to adjust your eyeglasses to fit your lifestyle and needs.

So instead of going through the hassle of sending your broken/bent eyeglasses back to your online retailer, or attempting to fix them yourself, our Sunridge eye doctors can repair your frame quickly and efficiently, restoring your vision as soon as possible.
