Eyeglasses Lens Swapping

With new prescriptions for two pairs of eyeglasses in-hand, and two relatively new sets of frames in daily use, I set out to have new lenses put in the current frames.

I was worried, though, that this would mean that I’d need to do without one set of glasses or the other for an extended period, and as each has its strong suit, this wasn’t an attractive prospect.

To my delight, however, when I went into Charlottetown Vision Care this morning to spec out the new lenses, they told me they could give me my current glasses back after taking measurements, order the new lenses, and then simply have me come in for 20 minutes to have the old ones swapped for the new.

I’d no idea this was possible, but it’s a big help.
