Just a Few Questions
Where are you and when can I see you?
We're conveniently located at Bathurst and Bloor, just west of Markham St on the north side. There's even a subway exit right next to us. If you're driving, there's a Green P behind us, and FREE 1 hour residential parking if you can find it.
Our exact address? 590 Bloor St W. Here's a Google map for you to tinker with:
Monday - Friday: 11:00 am - 8:00 pm
Saturday - Sunday: 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
What are you about?
Glass Monocle Eyecare was created to give the public an experience in shopping for eyewear. From curated collections of the latest trends, to highly specific lenswear and eye health exams, we want to give you nothing short of a wonderful product on top of a wonderful experience. We aim to create a harmonious relationship between the health care and the shopping experience.
How are you going to do this?
We based our company on providing three ideas:
In every brand we sign, every lens company we partner with, we'll always ask ourselves if it fits into this. We do everything we can to achieve a poetic balance between them.
What does your eye health exam include?
Aside from a thorough visual assessment for your latest prescription, we also test for a myriad of health indicators. Gone are the days of the primitive puff of air; you won't even know we've done the test!
Our doctors test for glaucoma, cataracts, retinal health, and even ocular muscle function. There are so many things that can arise well before it affects your vision, all of which are doctors are well versed in checking for.

OK, so now that I know about the store, who are you?
My name is Kinnard, and I'm a spec-a-holic. And a sport-a-holic. Die hard car fanatic. By trade I'm an Optician, by passion an Optician, and by birth a Taurus. I majored in Economics and Sociology at University of Toronto, but it wasn't nearly as fun as this. I love long walks on the beach, candle lit dinners, and well made glasses. Growing up I spent a lot of time outdoors, and so if I'm not in the store you can usually find me painting the town red. Basketball, boarding, beach volleyball, bouldering, beer, I love it all.
My name is Kyle, and I am America's Next Top Model. Just kidding, I'm actually just a crazy art lover with a passion for style and design! I'm also obsessed with horror, drag queens, and anything fabulous. My 3 work essentials are a good book for the subway, at least 2 pairs of sunglasses, and a comfy pair of heels. Nothing makes me happier than making people look and feel their best.
