Why should I buy prescription glasses at Horizon?

  • Don’t trust your vision to anyone but the best! Our highly experienced opticians are well-equipped to fit you with the best pair of glasses, whether your prescription is simple or complex.
  • Not all lenses are the same, especially when it comes to progressives. Some types simply have wider reading areas and less distortion. In fact, many progressive failures are due to using the wrong lens or not measuring the placement properly.
  • Make it easy on yourself. Browse our large selection of frames and consult an optical technician while you’re in for an appointment.

We offer complimentary adjustments for patients who buy prescription frames through Horizon.
