Handmade eyewear

We have a huge variety of glasses in-store and online: well over 2,000! The best independent eyewear designers from around the globe constantly supply us with new releases. Many of our eyewear brands offer exclusivity so not everyone is wearing the same pair of glasses. Are you looking for quality handcrafted eyewear that will last? Or glasses that are a functional work of art? Our glasses are fashionable, technical and use unique materials. While other opticians and optometrists focus on mass produced glasses, we do not. Our most popular brands are SALT. Optics, MYKITA, and Orgreen. A few of our niche collections include RAPP, KIRK & KIRK, and Hapter.

Myopia Management

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a visual condition in which people are unable to see far away objects clearly. People with myopia will need vision correction in the form of either glasses or contact lenses to be able to see clearly in the distance. Myopia is also a risk factor for other ocular diseases such as retinal detachment, myopic maculopathy, cataract and glaucoma.

Eye Exams

Request an appointment with one of our Optometrists! Our eye exams come with no sales gimmicks that could leave you feeling forced to buy glasses. A true love for family eye care is the foundation of our optometry practice. Eye exams at Insight Eye Care are conducted by an Optometrist with attention to both quality of vision and long-term eye health. Our Optometrists use the latest technology during the eye examination to make sure you get the best results.


Follow our PULSE. Stay up-to-date on the latest trends.

Glasses Culture

Instead of buying from a faceless corporation, you are supporting a local and independent business in Waterloo Region. In our blog called “Pulse”, our optometrists also write posts covering common eye care topics. We work with licensed Opticians to ensure you are getting the best lens technology to meet your needs. Our Optometrists are on-site, so there is no need to travel to a different clinic for your eye exam.

Children's Eye Exams

Our optometrists have lots of experience working with kids! At Insight Eye Care, we welcome children with a dedicated kids area in the waiting room. Our large facility and free parking are perfect to bring your entire family. Children’s eye exams are a way to monitor development and track changes from year to year.
