COVID-19 Update: In keeping with the latest advice, Visual Q Eyecare has moved to a limited time schedule (Mon, Wed & Fri 11-3pm). We have in place regular sanitization of our premise, especially service area & consultation rooms.
The importance of having your glasses periodically adjusted by a professional is underrated, and many people aren’t even aware of its necessity. Put simply, where the glasses sit on your face determines how they look and how comfortable they feel. We analyse the amount of space behind your eye for the glasses’ arms, as well as nose pad width. Do you really think the majority of glasses shops perform such detailed levels of scrutiny?
Visual Q adjusts the frame width by bending through the centre with specialised heat producing equipment. We also use heat to bend sections and joints. Bending frames properly comes with extensive experience; you need the ‘touch’. We also periodically adjust the arms, nose frame and nose pads.
Our Practice Manager often has to create ‘S’ bends in the arms (only in acetate frames) to bend the glasses around a larger shaped head, but we ensure the frame never looks too narrow from a front-on perspective. We are very conscious about different ethnicities and their inherent head shapes, so it makes it much easier for us to choose and adjust the best glasses possible.
