Independent Eyewear Culture

Take some time to check out our company culture in our galleries. Our business thrives on the energy of our staff and clients. 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.
