People tend to accept poor vision as part of getting older, but no matter what your age, you have a right to healthy sight! You may need glasses if you are having any difficulty seeing, headaches, eyestrain, fatigue, watery uncomfortable eyes, or excessive blinking. Whether you’ve worn glasses since childhood or never required vision correction, as you get older you become more at risk for vision problems, such as glaucoma, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and other potentially sight-threatening diseases.

Even if you aren’t experiencing trouble with your vision, an eye exam can uncover problems before symptoms occur and can even help with early detection of other serious health problems including diabetes or high blood pressure.

Eyewear Donations

Your old eyeglasses can make a difference!

Rather than disposing of, or storing your old pair of glasses, consider contributing them to Dr. Specs Optical. We donate eyeglasses through the Lions Club, Doctors Without Borders, and The Third World Eyecare Society – to countries such as Guatemala, India, Vietnam and the Philippines. These missions consist of a team of eye doctors and opticians that fit hundreds of people with glasses, which makes a profound difference in their lives. By helping these people see, you can help a child learn at school, or a person to gain employment.

I recently got new glasses at Dr Specs Optical. Their prices were great, as was their selection! The staff were really friendly and helpful, and my new glasses were ready in a timely manner. I went back twice to get my new glasses adjusted, (as they fit a little too tight), and great service from Ellyse every time. I highly recommend them, and would go back to them! Tina P
Awesome service and knowledge! Really helpful. Can also reshape your glasses / sunglasses so they stop falling off your face – definitely recommend. Carter
So happy I chose Dr. Specs for my new glasses! They were very friendly, extremely helpful, and I didn’t have to wait long to receive my new pair of glasses. The cleaning solution bonus was unexpected and I am grateful they care so much about their clients! A real breath of fresh air compared to the other companies I foolishly visited before this. 100% recommend Keri M
I needed glasses immediately as I had lost mine and did not have a backup pair. On the advice of a family member who had been an optician I contacted Dr. Specs. Lea there not only found me gorgeous frames in my price range, she also had them made up in my prescription same-day! I am thrilled with the service and price. I recommend this store completely, they really came through for me (and no, still haven’t found the lost pair). Lee R
The staff at Dr Specs treats us like we matter every time. They have a fantastic kids program and they are really good with my young kids and my teens. When we order glasses or new lenses they usually call us days before we expect to get them. Colleen B
