We use automated sight testing, a safe, effective procedure to test your eyesight. A trained refracting optician will use automated refraction technology to test and measure your vision, determine whether your vision would be clearer with corrective lenses, and the strength of those lenses.
If you are 19-65 years of age, are in good health, and have not experienced any sudden change in your vision or unusual visual symptoms, then automated refraction is a safe and effective way to test your vision. Between regular eye health exams, it can also be used to update your prescription and ensure your lenses are enabling you to see clearly.
Our automated testing is different from the complete eye health exams administered by optometrists. Their exam includes a vision exam that determines your prescription by placing lenses in front of your eyes to see which bring the eye chart into clear focus. They also do various tests to evaluate eye health. If you or your doctor see the need for an examination of your eye health, please see an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
It takes 15-60 minutes to train someone how to insert and remove contact lenses safely. For a $25 fitting fee, you will receive a free trial pair of contact lenses, a contact lens case, solution, and training. When you have tried the contact lenses and are happy with the fit, the prescription, and the comfort, we will order your lenses for you.

Our lab houses state-of-the-art generators that are capable of surfacing 900 pairs of lenses in an eight-hour shift. One of the generators is a backup so we never have downtime.
The lab has full edging facilities and can provide one-hour services, if necessary. Tinting, ultraviolet treatments, and scratch resistant coatings are done on the premises. All drilling is done on-site and repairs are done in the store.
Custom lens designs are available for full rimless frame styles. Customers can even draw the style lens they want and we will have it made! Edges of lenses can be colored to match frames for a more finished look.
Understanding seasonal colors will help you choose the right frame for your hair and skin tone. Summer and winter are cool colors and spring and fall are warm colors. To determine your best colors, take a piece of silver cloth and a piece of gold cloth and hold one at a time against your face, near your neck. If the gold is more flattering, you are likely a spring or fall warm tone. Looking better in silver means you are probably a summer or winter cool tone. If you look good in both, you are likely on a cusp between summer or winter.
Look at the inside of your wrist. If you see blue or white undertones, you are a summer or winter. If your wrists are golden, you are a spring or fall. All dark skin tones are winters.
Examples of color types:
Claudia Schiffer, with blonde hair and blue eyes, is a summer. Mandy Moore is fall with green eyes and strawberry-blonde hair. Molly Ringwald is a spring. She has red hair and a peachy complexion with freckles. Catherine Zeta-Jones has dark hair and light skin, all signs of a winter.
