Sight Testing

Crystal Vision & Better Hearing is one of the only optical offices that offers free sight testing! A sight test can determine your eyeglass prescription by relying on a combination of computerized tests and automated equipment.

Hearing Protection

It is an employer’s responsibility to provide hearing protection when it’s not practicable to reduce noise levels.

Depending on your work environment and hearing needs, our hearing professionals will help you determine the most appropriate hearing protection for your specific situation.

Safety Eyewear

A quick overview of our safety program

The program works according to these five simple steps:

1. An authorization form is signed by a company representative and given to the employee. These forms can be supplied by your company or created custom by us to match your needs.

2. The employee visits one of our four Crystal Vision & Better Hearing Centre retail locations and provides the signed authorization form along with a copy of their current prescription for safety eyewear. If an updated prescription is needed, we have an on-site Optometrist in each of our locations.

3. Our experts will help the employee choose a frame or ear protection that is right for them and take all necessary measurements or ear molds.

4. The order is then processed and ready within 5 -8 business days.

5. The employee then picks up the finished product and has them professionally fitted to ensure proper protection and comfort.
