General Impression:

Horrible customer service.

I went to get frames that I bought from them fixed. While I waited, the employee said she'd like to adjust the glasses I was wearing since she didn't like how they fit my face. I told her I didn't think she could bend them the way she wanted to since they were very sturdy and rigid. She insisted that she could if she heated them up. She broke them in two pieces. Their suggested solution to the loss of my prescription glasses was to give me a discount for the purchase of sunglasses in the future. That wouldn't even begin to solve my problem.

After three months of rage, excuses and NO solutions, the manager finally agrees to look into it. He sent me a check for half the cost of new frames and wants me to buy the lenses from their store with my own money. Like I am ever going to give them my money again. They can more than afford to replace the glasses that THEY BROKE. Three months later I am still without my glasses and will be for a while longer until I have the money to buy glasses that I shouldn't have to pay for in the first place.

  • Corneal ulcer can be caused by the in several factors. And different causes of corneal ulcer need different treatments. If it is caused by bacteria, the doctor will prescribe your some medicine. Or if you have experienced trauma to the eye, the corneal ulcer can be also caused by fungal keratitis and require different way to help them. So, if you got a corneal ulcer, you'd better see a doctor and follow his advice so as to give your eyes better treatment.

  • Of course not.The color of your eyes is inherent,it can't be changed by anything.

  • Cornea is the clear and transparent membrane covering on eyeballs. It can protect eyeball from irritation. It is called as window of eyes, because light needs to travel through and then get focus on the retina. Corneal scarring is the injury of cornea, which makes cornea opaque. Because the cornea is covering on eyeball, when it is transparent, we can't see it. However, if it is opaque, it might appear as dots or larger area. If the scar is located in the central part of eyeball, it could be very obvious cloudy spots and impact the vision. At the very early stage, medication could be adopted to treat corneal scarring. Once the scar is formed and impair most of the vision, then surgery is required for vision restore purpose.

  • There is no doubt that eye strain can worsen eye floaters. Eye floaters means there are something white and red point in your eyes which are noticeable when you stare something bright, such as blue sky and white paper. Eye strain can cause eye pain and affect eye vision. Floaters can be a sign of retinal detachment or a retinal tear. Sometimes the appearance of floaters has to be attributed to dark specks in the tear film of the eye. However, eye strain has a deep effect on tears. At this time, you can reduce Tear film debris through blinking. Eye floaters is really severe so that the patient should see an oculist as soon as possible to take treatment options.

  • Yes, it is possible for you to get dilated eyes because of migraines. As we know, the nerves in the whole body are interlinked. That is why the migraines cause the dilated eyes. People are prone to have dilated eyes when they are surprised or shocked. However, when they are infected with the bacterium in the eyes or their eyes are infected, they will have the phenomenon of dilated eyes, too. We'd better get rid of the dilated eyes by the migraines through taking the medicine which is with anti-inflammation role. You could also use the eyes drops with anti-inflammation role to make your eyes feel better and comfortable. In addition, you could use the warm compress method to get rid of the dilated eyes. You'd better have the healthy food diet and good rest which will be beneficial for your migraines and dilated eyes.

  • It depend on you. Of course, your prescription is also an important factors. If you have a mild prescription, and the vision defects will not affect your daily life, you may not need to wear it all the time. and just wear them when you need. But if you have strong prescription and you can't see anything if you won't wear it. Surely, you need to wear eyeglasses all the time.

  • The person who is under the age of 18 should not wear the contact lenses because their eyeballs are immature. And they can not clean the contact lenses well and insert and take off well so that they would hurt their eyes. If they have to wear them, please choose the one of parabolic type or days of parabolic type. The shorter they wear the contact lenses, the healthier their eyes are.

  • Well, in my opinion, it is very normal to have this situation. As we know that the light is so strong that when we open our eyes to see it, it will just make the eyes be hurt. And also Our eyes are so very sensitive that they will react to the stimulation from sun light. When the sunlight get into our eyes, it will make our eyes to adjust to it. And at this time, it will water. So it is very normal. And there is nothing for you to worry about. But on the other hand, you should not make your eyes to be exposed under the sunlight for a long time, for it will lead to some eye diseases. Anyway, just be careful.

  • it may be that the lens isn't adjusted properly. Please make sure that the size of the contact lenses is fitted and your never let your finger nails grow to long as they can easily rip them.

  • Yes, allergies will cause goopy eyes. Goopy eyes can result when conjunctivitis is not contagious, as in allergic conjunctivitis (cosmetic and contact lens allergy), exposure to irritants such as chemical fumes, pollens, pet dander, and dust. Conjunctivitis is inflammation of white part of the eye. It is also called conjunctiva. This condition is associated with redness, swelling, watery and goopy eyes. There is a sandy and gritty sensation upon blinking. Itching in the eye is a common feature of this condition. The eyelids are stuck and crusted. The causative organisms are bacteria and virus and the conjunctivitis resulting due to them is highly infectious.
