Prescription and Specialty Eyewear

imageWe provide wide range of specialty eyewear for special needs.

Regardless of your vision issue, or how you choose to view the world, there are now prescription lenses that meet your personal lifestyle and eye correction requirements. At Empress Eye Clinic we carry eyeglass lenses that: change as the light changes, from clear indoors to dark outdoors; bifocal lenses that provide multiple fields of vision; high-index lenses that are thinner and lighter than ever before; and progressive lenses that eliminate the traditional lines of multifocal lenses. You may also want to consider a second pair of glasses as a spare or to address a different vision need. We're also happy to give you tips on how to care for and maintain your lenses, as well as choose the right type of eyeglass frame materials for you.

To be sure, while eyeglass lenses are prescribed to correct all kinds of vision challenges, prescription lenses have progressed tremendousbly—providing you the chance to truly customize your eyeglasses and make a statement about how you choose to look at the world.

OHIP Exams Update

As of November 23, 2021, Ontario Government agreed with a formal negotiation and Ontario optometrists agreed to resume service for OHIP insured patients during the negotiations. We do our best to accommodate as many patients we could. We started booking from our long waiting list that has been built up since September. We continue adding patients to our list and try to see as many patients as possible without compromising our high quality eye care services.

If you wish to be added to our waiting list please kindly use our online appointment request form. We really appreciate your patience, understanding and support! In the meantime please visit and let the government know you care about your eye care and this is the government’s responsibility to pay for your eye care, not your optometrist.
