Lensmakers Optical - Sight Tests

Sight Tests

At Lensmakers Optical we believe that you should always have the most up-to-date prescription in your eyeglasses. Our sight tests are quick and easy so you don’t have to get a complete eye health examination every time you purchase new eyeglasses. That’s why we include the cost of your sight test in the price of your new eyewear.

Our licensed opticians/sight testers have performed thousands of sight tests with excellent results and if you’re not 100% happy with your new prescription, we will fix it at no cost to you. This service is also available to those not purchasing eyewear, for a small fee.

One-Hour Optical Service

One-Hour Optical Service

Lensmakers Optical offers the most personal and individualized service to meet your specific eyewear needs. We have an onsite lab in our stores and trained technicians who can frequently make eyeglasses for you in an hour or less.

Our technicians can also replace the lenses in your current eyeglass frames or sunglasses so you don’t have to be without your best vision for too long. You can continue wearing your existing eyeglasses until your new lenses have arrived. We only need your frames for about 30 minutes while we insert your lenses.

Optometrist Referrals

Optometrist Referrals

Right next door to our Vernon Lensmakers Optical store we have an optometrist who is available throughout the week to perform complete eye examinations for our customers.

Our Vernon and Kamloops stores offer referrals to local optometrists so that all our customers can keep up to date with their eye health.

Repairs & Cleaning

When you purchase your eyeglasses at Lensmakers Optical you also get extended optical assistance. We understand that frames don’t always keep their original shape, that’s why we offer ongoing adjustments and minor repairs to all our eyeglass and sunglass frames. This service includes adjustments and tightening, new nose pads and screws, lens cleaning, and deep cleaning in our ultrasonic cleaner, and replacement parts when available.

Most of our frames and lenses also come with a one, or two-year warranty on manufacturing faults. We can also order replacement parts for a fee, or under warranty if that is offered by the supplier. If you have any inquiries or are unsure if your frame can be repaired visit one of our stores and talk to our friendly staff members.
