Struggling to find the perfect gift this holiday season? We get it, some people are so hard to shop for! If the person on your list wears glasses or contact lenses, consider giving the gift of vision! There are many ways to give gifts of high value this holiday season. With the help from the team at Dr. Tavel and the suggestions below, you’ll find the perfect present for anyone on your list.

Gift Certificates for Eyewear

Let the person on your list pick out their perfect pair of frames! People who wear glasses or contact lenses can use a gift certificate to purchase new eyewear, contact lenses, and other optical accessories. They could also use any extra funds to take advantage of lens upgrades like anti-reflective coating or Transitions lenses, which will significantly benefit any glasses wearer. Gift certificates are available at all of our 22 locations.

Contact Lenses

If the person on your list is a Dr. Tavel customer with a valid prescription, you can order additional contact lenses for them and stick them in their stocking! You can order additional supplies of contacts online or by calling us at 844-GO-TAVEL. Our amazing team at Dr. Tavel can also offer contact lens solution recommendations and send you home with some samples.

Eye Exam

Is your loved one struggling to see the screen, or squinting to read instructions? If perhaps they haven’t had an eye exam in the last year, this is a great gift and friendly reminder of the importance of vision in their life. Gifting eye exams could really help families or friends who are on a budget and might benefit from a “free” eye exam. Whether they need a reminder of how vital an annual eye exam is, or just need a gentle push to get something scheduled, the recipient can use this gift at their convenience by scheduling online or finding a time that works for them.

Eyes Of Hope Donation

Eyecare is essential, yet 1.3 billion people around the world live with vision impairment and can’t get the care they need. Dr. Tavel partners with VSP® Eyes of Hope® to collect frame donations in all of our locations all year long. If you have an old pair collecting dust in your drawer, the holidays are a perfect time to give those glasses a second life. Eyes of Hope® is committed to increasing access to eye care and eyewear where it’s needed most. You can donate old pairs of gently used glasses at any of our offices any time of the year.

We know that vision is one of our most precious gifts. While it’s tough to wrap the gift of sight in a snazzy box, your loved ones will truly see a difference. If you have additional questions about how to give the gift of better sight, give us a call at 844-GO-TAVEL or chat with us on our website.


From everyone at Dr. Tavel, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
