“Buying local” isn’t just a new fad reserved for the trendy. It’s a socially responsible way to strengthen your community. Supporting local businesses, especially optometrists, is also beneficial to consumers. So before you jump online to order your next pair of glasses or contact lenses, continue reading to learn why supporting and trusting your local optometrist is a wise choice. If you’re in the market for new eyewear, don’t hesitate to visit Village Eye Centre — your friendly neighborhood optical.

Why Support Your Local Optometrist?

Eyewear Warranties

We know and understand that accidents happen. Many local optical practices provide warranties on most of their eyewear — and this isn’t necessarily the case for online optical sites. This is especially important for parents of children who need corrective lenses or sports eyewear. Not having a warranty can be a deal-breaker for many shoppers, something to be wary of when shopping online in general.

Need a Repair? No Big Deal

Nose pad fell out? Lens became loose? Not a problem. The local optical practice where you purchased your eyewear can help with the repair. It’s always best to have your glasses repaired at the location that they came from, since the staff is familiar with the piece and can easily provide assistance.

Personalized Service &  Care

Online shopping doesn’t compare to the friendly and warm shopping experience you receive when visiting Village Eye Centre. Our staff aims to provide you with personalized service and care, to make every visit a positive experience.

Find Your Perfect Fit  - Optician at Village Eye Centre

Take the opportunity to get fitted by an optician who can recommend frames that properly fit your face, and make adjustments to ensure your glasses fit comfortably yet securely. You may be disappointed when ordering stylish glasses online, only to receive ill-fitting eyewear that isn’t your exact prescription. At Village Eye Centre we ensure that each patient is fitted with eyewear that best suits their style, face, and vision.

Shop Local - Support Local Service Providers

Where you spend your dollars makes a difference. Buying locally strengthens the local economy and ensures that jobs are available to those in the community. Especially in this current pandemic situation, your community needs you to invest in it and allow it to continue to survive. Help make a positive change in North Edmonton — invest in local businesses.
