Our Collection

Great selection of glasses and very knowledgeable staff who are there to make you look good! Fantastic prices and service. Will continue to buy from Eyes On King.

I came into the store and asked an employee if they could assist me with fixing my glasses. The service that this gentleman provided was nothing short of fantastic. I would recommend any and all friends in the waterloo-kitchener area to come to this store with any business regarding eye-wear.

Came into the store for a transfer of lenses to a newer sturdier frame. The assistance I got from both associates was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable, I walked out same day with new frames for a very fair price! I adore the new frames more than the pair I almost got because the advice was the pair I got suited my face better. I definitely would go back for glasses, they have a great selection. As someone who wears glasses daily, its important to me to love my frames as well as have them look good.

Eyes on King is the perfect place for your next pair of glasses
