5 Things You Might Not Know About Hakim Optical

Since 1967, Hakim Optical has provided quality eye care to countless Canadians. As we’ve grown to over 140 locations throughout the country, we’re often the first choice for many people for all their eyewear needs. Even though many are familiar with our stores and brand, there are some things you might not know about Hakim Optical!

1. There’s a Licensed In-Store Optician at Every Location
Opticians are trained to dispense corrective eyewear based on the prescription provided by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Opticians help customers choose frames, lens coatings and contact lenses and have the knowledge to properly fit and fix glasses.

Opticians are so important, we ensure every Hakim Optical location has at least on staff. If you ever have any issues with your glasses or contact lenses, our licensed opticians will be happy to help.

2. Hakim Optical Carries a Full Line of Safety Eyewear
In addition to a variety of glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses, we also dispense prescription safety glasses. Whether you need a certified pair for work, or want to protect your eyes during a home renovation, our staff can help you choose the right pair for your needs and prescription.

3. We Offer Some of the Best Lenses on the Market
We believe in providing our customers with the best quality lenses. For example, one of Hakim Optical’s manufacturing labs is Satisloh Labs. At this lab, we’re able to achieve a precision of 1/1000 of a millimetre when making lenses. This is in comparison to other brand labs’ precision of 1/10 of a millimetre. We also offer our customers access to specialty lenses like REVO and EnChroma.

4. We’ll Donate Your Un-Needed Glasses
Every single Hakim Optical location will gladly take your un-needed glasses and sunglasses. We’re proud to partner with Lions Club International to ensure that all donated corrective eyewear is used to help others.

5. You Can Recieve Glasses in Only an Hour
Many of our locations (over 120!) have one-hour labs that can provide our customers with same-day service for prescription eyewear. If you’re interested in this service, please call your local Hakim Optical location to see if your frames and prescription are eligible.

Hakim Optical is proud to be the first choice of many Canadians for all their eyewear needs.
