Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic Second Specs has temporarily closed all but our Sherwood Park location. If you have glasses on order or ready to be picked up they will be available to be shipped to you. Please contact if you have not already heard from us. As one of the only eyecare locations able to still offer same day emergency glasses and safety glasses we will attempt to stay open to help provide these services for as long as possible. We ask that if you have any symptoms of cough, cold or flu to phone us first for options.

As of March 23rd we will be shifting to an essential services only platform. We will provide same day glasses only.

We have implemented new safety protocals to protect our staff from the increased risk of Covid-19. We ask that you please abide by the posted rules. In the event that your glasses cannot be made onsite they will be shipped to you free of charge. We are providing limited adjustments at this time but will be happy to properly fit your glasses when safe. Thank you for your understanding.

The Smartest Way to Buy Glasses

Free In-House or 30% off Brand Name Frames

Choose from our selection of FREE Second Specs brand frames, or purchase from our many exciting lines of designer frames like Ray-Ban and Oakley. All backed with a one year warranty. You can even use your existing frame! 



 Ready in as Little as 30 Minutes

Depending on your needs, choose from Single Vision, Bi-Focal, Progressive or Safety Lenses. 

We also offer high performance Digital Free Form Progressive lenses. Single Vision options made while you wait.




Anti-Reflective and Blue Light Protection

Choose from our extensive options including Anti-reflective or blue light protective coatings, Polycarbonate and High-Index Lenses, Transition effects, Polarized sunglasses and more.  Choose the combination that's right for your needs!


Fast, Affordable, Quality Eyewear

We are taking the hassles out of buying prescription glasses.

When you buy glasses at regular opticals they can be expensive. When you buy glasses online you have to wait for them to arrive in the mail and often they don't look or fit right. 


At Second Specs, things are different:


  • Our frame and single vision lenses start at only $78, our frame and progressive lenses start at only $176. 


  • We have onsite opticians ensuring that every pair of glasses are correctly measured and adjusted to fit properly.


  • Our single vision eyewear can be ready in as little as 30 minutes. 


  • For every pair of glasses we sell, we donate one pair of glasses to someone in need through Canadian Vision Care.
