HoyaWe feel it is important that you understand that when it comes to vision care products, they are not all created equally! Across the eye care industry there is a large variance in quality and craftsmanship. We take pride in using a wide-range of top quality materials with great product support to provide you with the best possible eye care products. We meet regularly with manufacturer's representatives to make sure that we have the latest and greatest available. Our value is in knowing what is available and what best meets your needs.

Acuvue When considering where to purchase your eyeglasses, contact lenses, and sunwear, remember to consider the following...

Total Eye Health

AlconOur office is part of this community. We want you to have sharp vision and great comfort with your glasses and contact lenses. The health of your eyes is our major concern. That is why we stand behind our products and services with unique warranties, and a professional and well-educated team. Different prescriptions require certain frame styles and lens treatments in order for your glasses to perform well and look great. Our trained opticians can guide you through this process. Our dispensary has hundreds of frames from which to choose, including a large selection of children's frames. We can help you find the size, shape and color of frame that is perfect for all family members. When it comes to contact lenses we offer a full spectrum of the latest and best performing products. Even if you have been told before that you cannot wear lenses, we may have a solution that is right for you.

Competitive Pricing

At Karns Vision Center we offer competitive pricing, affordable eyewear packages, and multiple pair savings. You are also welcome to take advantage of manufacturer rebate programs and special promotions through our office. From budget-minded to the fashion-driven, we have something for everyone.

Convenience

Karns Vision offers a wide selection of products in our office as well as through custom orders. We use only the highest quality materials and will courteously recommend eyewear and contact lenses that fit your lifestyle and fashion - all within your budget.

Warranty

We offer a one-year frame warranty and different lens warranties depending on the options placed on the lenses. If for any reason under normal wearing conditions your frame breaks, we will replace it within one year of the purchase date. If you have purchased any of our anti-reflective options, you will be given a scratch warranty (unless not offered by your insurance plan). Other lens warranties vary depending on which lenses are purchased.
