Fitting someone for eyeglasses at Starbucks over coffee is not out of the ordinary for south Etobicoke resident Zahra Lavji, who works as a travelling optician.
In fact, she’ll travel just about anywhere to meet her clients, bringing the optical shop to them at homes, businesses or elsewhere around the GTA and beyond.
While it’s becoming increasingly common for people to shop online for their eyeglasses, Lavji said it’s an impersonal experience that does not always result in the customer receiving the best options.
She said that’s one of the reasons she created her business, Eyewear on the go, a mobile optical shop.
