Eyeglasses, Frames & Contacts Carefully Selected for Your Unique Needs

We firmly believe that glasses need to be fitted to every individual to optimize the vision possibilities of every prescription. We carefully select our frame styles not only on fashion but also on quality and ability to adjust the frame to appropriately fit you.

We are also Licensed Contact Lens Fitters and we take time to discuss your prescription and how that can be translated into contact lenses whether you want them for sports, everyday wear, or special occasions. We can fit contact lenses for astigmatism, bifocal contact lenses, soft contact lenses or Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) contact lenses. Bring in your prescription and we can discuss what will be most suitable for your needs.

United Optical Dispensary Ltd also does specialty work which is done through ophthalmologist recommendation. We create custom fit  Moisture Chamber eyeglasses for patients with severe dry eyes. These glasses have been most beneficial in helping to manage the pain and discomfort of dry eye resulting most often from Sjögren’s Syndrome or Graft-versus-host disease. Another specialty item we also are able to make is a ptosis crutch although, with surgical advances, there has been less call for this particular product.
