Meet the Eye Doctors

Eye exams at Glass Monocle Eyewear are conducted by experienced optometrists. The process includes a thorough visual acuity assessment and an array of health check ups to ensure overall well-being of your eyes.

After your eye exam, the eye doctor will write you a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses and our in-house opticians will guide you through the process of choosing the perfect pair of glasses or contact lenses.
