If You Love Them...We, Will, Repair Them.
Frame soldering and some repairs require that your lenses be removed from the frame. The prescription must be identified prior by a licensed optician using a specialized instrument called a lensometer. The lenses when inserted back have to match the prescription. Any deviation to the right or left changes your script. Let a licensed optician do the repair.
When putting your old lenses in a new frame or a frame that has been soldered, the licensed opticians make sure all initial measurements are taken into consideration. Otherwise, your eyeglasses will not be right. If you have astigmatism just a minor rotation of the lens changes your prescription. We have all the tools (there are electronic lensometers and special tools to set the correct axis) to make sure that it is done right! We read all prescriptions with an auto lensometer that provides the exact prescription of your lenses prior to doing the repair, that way your lenses are in the correct position after the repair! Any misplacement and you will not see correctly!
IF THE FRAME CANNOT BE REPAIRED THEN WHAT?
We have hundreds of frames and we can re-edge the lenses into the frame without any problem, putting your old lenses in exactly the correct position thus not changing the prescription. We are one of the few optical stores in Fort Myers that provide these specialty services. Come into our Vision Center and you will be amazed what our Opticians can do as far as repairs. Other optical stores will shy away from repairs but we don't. In fact, they do not do it because they probably want to sell you another complete pair of lenses and frames. Come check us out... At Florida Optical Services all repairs are done by a state-licensed optician. We are so good at doing repairs that many optometrists send their repair jobs to us.
