In my twenty-five years as an optician, I’ve found that most consumers don’t know how to obtain an effective pair of prescription glasses. They think that all they must do is choose a flattering pair of frames. Nothing could be further from the truth. For one thing, prescription glasses are not simply a fashion accessory; they’re a medical device. For another, it’s up to you and your eye-care provider to make sure you have the best vision possible. In the following pages, I’ll tell you what to expect from eye-care providers and what your contribution should be. Remember, you only have one pair of eyes, and they deserve your closest attention.

I highly recommend this book! I am addicted to buying glasses, the funkier the better, but this book is not only a great buying tool, it's entertaining as well!
