Please note, our team is working from home with reduced resources. We'll help you as soon as we can, but expect a slight wait time.
Health and safety
The safety of our customers, employees, and suppliers is the most important thing to us. In line with government guidelines, we're adhering to strict health regulations.
- Social-distancing: Our team is operating in completely separate shifts, wearing protective equipment, and undergoing regular health checks.
- Sanitization: We're following a vigorous sanitization schedule for all products and equipment.
- Communication: We're working closely with our network of service providers to ensure our health and safety standards are aligned.
Our Mission is to ensure everyone has access to the eyewear they need. In response to the shortage of personal protective equipment in Canada, we’re producing safety glasses and face shields for frontline healthcare workers. So far, we’ve donated:
- 1,052 safety glasses to Vancouver Coastal Health.
- 60,000 face shields to the Canadian Federal Government, to be distributed across the country based on need.
