An unlicensed optician who for years illegally prescribed and then sold eyeglasses to customers across the GTA has been sentenced to one year in jail for civil contempt.

Bruce Bergez — founder of the Great Glasses chain of eyeglass stores — was sentenced to jail with no chance of parole by a Superior Court Justice in Hamilton in early October.

Bergez’s wife and business partner, Joanne, is to be sentenced for her part in the business next year upon her husband’s release.
