Finding the perfect pair of glasses

Nicole comes to Squint Eyewear with more than 20 years of optical experience. Her ability to select the perfect pair of glasses on her first try is truly exceptional. She takes delight in seeing the smile on a client’s face when they put on their new eyewear knowing that countless compliments will be the by-product for them.


When you first enter an eyewear store, a relaxing and pleasurable experience is not usually something that comes to mind. Walking into an eclectically furnished environment with a beautifully curated selection of independent handcrafted eyewear can change your state of mind. Add to this a warm atmosphere created by personable staff, and what can be a stressful experience turns into something enjoyable and fulfilling.

Individualized fittings and consultations are a key part of the process in finding the right pair of glasses and knowledgeable staff will work to combine traditional styling with a twist. The perfect eyeglass frame should complement both the client’s taste and style. This is where the expertise of the Registered Optician will ensure the optimization of your visual experience. The best selection of exclusive eyewear comes from international trade shows in Milan and Paris where only the most coveted hand-crafted and innovative designs are selected for the customer.

Another important part of the full eyewear experience is the proper alignment and comfort of your eyeglasses. Service should not stop the day you pick up your glasses. If for any reason your glasses need a tune-up there should be no charge or inconvenience in getting adjustments made.

The best highly-skilled Registered Opticians will also offer the same in-store experience in the comfort of your home, office or cottage by way of a mobile eyewear service. Private appointments like this allow for the highest standards of health and safety. In order to provide a fully satisfactory experience, a phone consultation will take place in advance of your appointment to obtain some preliminary information about frame style preferences and advise on premium lens options. Upon arrival at your venue of choice, the Optician will bring you a wide selection of eyewear to choose from during your private styling session.

Registered opticians are committed to meeting the high standards of practice enforced by the Ontario College of Opticians. All are dedicated to meeting continuing education requirements to incorporate the most advanced lens designs and fitting techniques into the service and care they provide to you.
