We are a mother daughter team. Beth is a licensed Optician with over 30 years’ experience all gained locally, and Amanda joined me in November 2020. She is a student Optician finishing her course and writing her board exams in 2023. I purchased the store in February 2019 from Frank Stewart who was retiring. In March 2020 we did a store renovation and brought in many new designer frames such as Tom Ford, Oakley, Rayban and Michael Kors. With the renovation complete we were able to increase our inventory to over 1000 frames and sunglasses. We carry something for everyone. Our specialty is giving our honest opinion, so you leave looking and feeling amazing in your latest selection. Our reputation of matching a frame style to a client’s face shape, colouring as well as their personal style is the highlight of our day. It’s a great deal of fun getting to know a person and what their wants and needs are. Frames arrive weekly because who doesn’t want the latest styles, to be unique and individual? With that in mind Amanda and I do our best to keep our frames evolving with the fashion industry.
The Eye Guy offers digital lens technology from Essilor paired with advance lens treatments such as Crizal Anti-Reflective Coatings, Transitions, or Polarized Tints. Once we have made the frame selection, we also make recommendations on the best lens choice. Our lenses are available in Single Vision, Progressive and Task/Computer lenses to name a few. We will review your prescription and make suggestions and recommendations that best answer your vision needs. Our personal attention to your vision needs with honest opinions on the frame fit and style coupled with affordable and competitive pricing make “The Eye Guy” the best choice for your next eyeglasses, sunglasses or contact lenses purchase.
In 2021 we received the prestigious O.B.A.A – Outstanding Business Achievement Award for Inclusivity. This was an enormous honour both to be nominated and win the category. The entrance to The Eye Guy is graded for accessibility, has parking immediately beside the building providing less distance for walkers, and we offer curbside pick-up and adjustments for those that may need to remain in vehicle. Within the store we have mirrors set up for easy viewing of frames tried on as well as magnifying mirrors. We also offer mobile services for your selection for a busy professional or loved ones who may have mobility issues. With this service we bring along about a dozen frames to try on and select from, returning to fit the eyewear with tools once eyeglasses are completed. This service is offered by appointment only and we hope to resume this service when restrictions begin to lift.
