Store Policies


Spectacle prescriptions are determined by the Optometrist to give the best possible vision for the patient’s needs as discussed during the eye examination. Prescriptions written by our Optometrists are warranted for 3 months and valid for spectacle production for 1 year. It is strongly recommended that corrective eyewear is purchased from a licensed eye care practitioner to avoid complications with vision.

Prescription (Rx) Re-check Policy:

New eyewear affects your vision and your perception of the world. We stand behind the work of our highly skilled Optometrists. However, we don’t always know how your glasses will feel in your every day life. This is especially true when there is a large prescription change or when adapting to progressive multi-focal lenses. If you have problems with a Rx prescribed by one of our Optometrists, you may book a no-charge Rx Re-Check appointment with that same Optometrist within 3 months of receiving the original prescription. If you did not purchase your spectacles from us, we recommend you also consult with the original dispensing location.*

*When there is an issue with eyewear that was not purchased from our office, patients are to return to the place of purchase to resolve problems before seeing their Optometrist again. If eyewear was purchased online or overseas, a Partial Eye Exam fee will apply to see the Optometrist again for trouble-shooting. NOTE: Our Optometrists use the highest standards of clinical methods to determine your Rx, which is the result of teamwork between you and the Optometrist. However, Rx can vary day to day, week to week, depending on your general and ocular health status, or your alertness/tiredness during the eye exam.

30 Dat Satisfaction Guarantee:

Your glasses were custom made for you, so we want to make sure that you love them. If you’re not completely happy with your purchase within the first 30 days, please let us know. We’ll do whatever it takes to make it right.*

*Applies to original purchase. Does not cover accidental damage, scratches, breakage or theft. All refunds require consultation with the on-site optometrist or optician and approval by an office manager. A fee of $30 is applied for administrative costs to refund insurance claims.

Prescription Warranty:

If you’re not happy with the vision in your glasses, we are happy to provide you with a one time change in spectacle lenses if the prescription was adjusted by our store (lab or Optometrist) or if you provide a change in prescription created by any Optometrist within 90 days of your original purchase.*

*Applies to original purchase. Does not cover accidental damage, scratches, breakage or theft. All refunds require consultation with the on-site optometrist or optician and approval by an office manager. If the customer decides to exchange to a less expensive lens product than the original purchase, refund for the difference will be given if the exchange is made within 30 days. If the exchange was made 31-90 days after the original purchase, store credit is given. If the customer decides to exchange to a more expensive lens product than the original purchase, payment for the difference is required at time of the exchange.

Manufacturer’s Warranty:

Spectacle orders have a 90-day warranty on any manufacturer defect of frames (final sale frames excluded*) and 1-year warranty on manufacturer defect of spectacle lenses from the date of purchase at the discretion of the Kodak Lens Vision Centre. This does not apply to accidental damage from handling, scratches or normal wear and tear. Contact lens orders are warrantied for 1 year from date of purchase. Please provide proof of payment when picking up eyewear and/or contact lenses.

No-Fault Warranty:

Our no-fault warranty is available for an additional cost of $50 per pair on all Kodak lenses. No-Fault warranty provides a 1 time lens(es) replacement in case of an accident or a breakage within 1 year (365 days) of the original order. This warranty must be purchased at the time of the original order to be valid. This warranty is not applicable on frames. Does not cover any loss of lenses. Some conditions apply, please ask in store for full details.

Final Sales:

No-Refunds or returns on all non-prescription sunglasses, final sale clearance frames, pre-fabricated readers, opened or expired nutraceuticals and ophthalmic frames (when only the frame is purchased without prescription lenses). We will make any repairs and adjustments if possible. Non-prescription sunglasses come with a 1-year manufacturer warranty for any manufacturer defects.           

Frame Orders:

Frames that are not available in present in-store frame selection or inventory may be subjected to a $55 non-refundable deposit if customer wishes for a special order to try on new frame. Availability of special frame order and delivery time may vary. The non-refundable deposit may be credited towards in-store eye care services, other eyewear including contact lenses (cannot be put towards a second special frame order – separate deposit) or eye care products if customer does not proceed with purchase of special frame ordered.

Soft Contact Lens Orders:

All soft contact lens orders include a 1 year rip, loss and prescription change warranty only if purchased with a valid contact lens prescription written by an Optometrist or Dispensing optician within the year. Contact lenses must not be expired. If a patient’s prescription changes within the year, unopened boxes may be returned and credit will be given toward the next 6 month or annual supply purchase of contact lenses when an updated prescription is provided by a licensed eye care/health professional.

Unlimited Free Cleanings and Frame Adjustments:

Dr. Archie Chung, Dr. Linda Tse & Associates will keep your eyeglasses clean and fitted properly at no charge. If the frame is discontinued or not purchased from our store, cleanings and adjustments are at the patient’s own risk and our vision centre cannot be responsible for accidental breakage. Our careful and trained staff will try their best not to damage your glasses in any way.
