Onsite Optical Lab

GLCO Queen West - Onsite Lab

We have our own lab onsite!

GLCO Queen West - Optician in Lab

This means, we take the handling of your prescription into our own hands.

Our in-store Opticians are some of the city’s best, with diverse experience and training. We have the industry’s finest technology when it comes to lens cutting/edging, tinting and adjusting.

Optical prescriptions require several steps from ordering, to manufacturing, to then getting inside your frame of choice.

We do it all here - same day lenses for some single vision, custom tints and sun lenses, frame repairs, acetate frame buff & polish and the very best part - cutting the lenses to the frames. This process requires an immense amount of skill and precision.  There are strict tolerances for dispensing optical lenses, so we double, triple, even quadruple check every little detail.
Precision! We love it.

We are proud to Exclusively offer Carl Zeiss Vision Lenses
Custom fit to your individual vision needs with the best coatings and quality in mind. Our Licensed Opticians can help you with frame adjustments and repairs, frame selection, lenses and prescriptions, recommendations and customizations.

We stock single vision lenses, blue light lenses from Zeiss and custom order everything else in-between from Zeiss exclusively. They are the industry leader in optical lenses and your vision will feel the difference.
