How Are My Glasses Made?

Posted on January 19, 2013 · Posted in Eyeglasses

Perhaps the most exciting part of our front office renovation, aside from the vastly expanded selection of frames from which our patients can choose, is the addition of our own lens finishing equipment.  What this means for us is that we have full control of the final quality of our finished product while for you, our patient, this means faster service.  We shouldn’t omit the community value of doing this work locally, either.  Keeping this work in-house means more of your money goes to support a locally-grown and owned business which, in turn, keeps more of your money working in the community.

Stepping down from our soapbox for a moment…have you ever wondered how the lenses for glasses are actually made? Our younger patients really seem to (or at least they express the question more than anyone else).  We’ve tried to explain the process in the past, but figured it would be a good time to put the spotlight on our new equipment and “show” rather than “tell”.

Enjoy.  Hope to see you soon.
