Same Day Glasses

Are you looking for same-day glasses in Laredo, TX?

blond 20wearing 20glassesAt our Laredo optical, we know you don’t want to wait long for your eyeglasses. That’s why we have an on-site eyeglass lab that can make single vision glasses the same day you order them. Same day glasses for single vision lenses can really come in handy.

What are single vision lenses and why are those eyeglasses the ones we offer for same-day glasses? Single vision glasses have lenses that correct for only one distance. These lenses contain one prescription. If you are nearsighted and just need glasses for seeing things that are far away, you probably wear single vision lenses. A simple pair of reading glasses: those are single vision eyeglasses too. Since single vision glasses can be cut and installed into eyeglass frames quickly, our onsite optical lab can make them for you that day. However, bifocals, trifocals, progressive lenses (PAL), or lenses with special coatings are customized and typically take longer to manufacture according to the specifications you need.
