If you’ve ever found yourself asking “What do opticians do?”, here’s your answer. In a simplified flowchart below, we’ve depicted our process of crafting the perfect prescription lenses to fit every pair of eyeglass frames we sell at our Old Saybrook, CT optometry & optician office.
We start out with the top names in eyeglass lenses (Nikon lenses, Essilor Lenses, Varilux lenses, Hoya lenses, Zeiss lenses, and many others) which as you can see, arrive in very large form. We then guide our customers through the process of selecting their designer eyeglass frames and once this is done, we use our optician technology to shave down the frames (as depicted in Step 2) until they’re just the right size. After this, we fit them into the frames and once we’re sure we’ve crafted lenses that are a perfect fit, we set your new eyeglasses up with a protective case then give you a call to come and pick them up!
Here’s a partial list of some of the fine lens brands we carry. There are just too many to list them all!
