Since 1989,, West Coast Optical has provided clients with personalized service and high quality brand frames from Dilem, Gucci, Versace, Valentino, and more, all at affordable prices to accommodate all budgets. We carry the best lenses in the industry, from Essilor, Nikon, and Zeiss. West Coast Optical also carries all types and brands of contacts lenses at competitive prices, many of which are in stock for your convenience.
At West Coast Optical, we are more than just an optical retailer; we care about the health of your eyes. In 2014, we added an in-store Optometrist who conducts eye-health exams for clients interested in a complete and thorough examination to make sure their eyes are healthy. Furthermore, West Coast Optical’s in-store lab and contact lens fitters assure that whether a client is looking for glasses or contact lenses, they will always get a personalized and accurate fit. Our licensed refracting opticians on staff continue to offer clients between the ages of 19-64 complimentary vision tests.
Dr. Grace Wong, our in store optometrist, attends to full eye health and vision examinations for children, adults and seniors. She also offers clients other services, including contact lens evaluation, fitting and dispensing, as well as cataract and glaucoma co-management.
Eye exams, unlike vision tests, can ultimately determine the health of an eye or if there is an illness that may be causing damage to it. Refracting opticians are not licensed to conduct eye exams, which is why West Coast Optical has an experienced in-store optometrist to conduct regular eye health exams. Children’s eye exams are no charge with MSP coverage.
In addition to having in-store licensed refracting opticians and an in-store optometrist, West Coast Optical also has an in-store lab and a state-of-the-art computer with a 3-dimensional tracer/edging system. This system works to create perfect lenses in frames for clients by ensuring there are no gaps so that the lenses stay in their frames. An in-store lab at West Coast Optical benefits the client by allowing them to:
- Duplicate the shape of any frame, whether new or existing using the digital tracer;
- Cut lenses to fit any frame, including wraparound sunglasses, semi-rimless, or full frames to the accuracy of 1/10th of a millimetre; and
- Order new lenses while keeping their current frames.
With three contact lens fitters at West Coast Optical, clients can feel comfortable knowing that they do not need to book an appointment weeks in advance for a contact lens fitting. Also, clients requiring contact fittings are guaranteed both accurate and personalized fittings; contact lens fitters take each client’s eye measurements including curvature, diameter, and type.
West Coast Optical contact fitters will also educate clients who have never worn contacts before on proper use and how to correctly handle, clean, and apply contact lenses before wearing.
