The best way to protect your vision is to get it checked through an annual comprehensive examination. An examination by our doctors at Argos Vision and Eye Care Center will not only check the health of your eyes but also detect any developing eye diseases or disorders. This is crucial to maintaining good eye health since many of these eye diseases are progressive and have no symptoms, so the exam is the only way to diagnose them before they start to seriously impact your vision. The annual examination also measures your vision and will recommend any correction lenses needed to make it as perfect as possible. Gaithersburg eyeglasses are what many people use to correct vision.
Our optical shop can fulfill your prescription for Gaithersburg eyeglasses or contact lenses. Our doctor has provided the best corrective lens prescription for your eyes but the prescription will not help unless it is filled properly and put into the right pair of Gaithersburg eyeglasses. Our opticians will work with you to select a pair of frames that not only look good with your facial structure and sense of style but also are right for your prescription. If you have a strong prescription a large frame may be too big and heavy, or if you need multifocal lenses you have to have enough room in the frames to include each focal segment. Stronger prescriptions might necessitate the use of lighter weight lenses to keep the stress on your nose down. There are many aspects of selecting the proper frames that our opticians are expert at and can help guide you. Luckily our optical store has thousands of designer frames at affordable prices to help you find the right eyeglasses.
Another aspect of making the perfect pair of Gaithersburg eyeglasses for you is getting the prescription right. The doctor’s prescription has to be placed correctly in the frames and measured accurately by our trained and experienced opticians. If the lenses aren’t perfect in the frames your vision won’t be perfect either, so we work hard to get it perfect for you. Please come to one of our locations to choose the perfect pair of eyeglasses to compliment your style, your look and improve your vision.
