We also carry most brand name contact lenses such as Vistakon (Acuvue), Bausch & Lomb, Ciba and CooperVision.



Passing value to our customers (Value = Quality Products @ Affordable $$)


We believe that buying eyeglasses does not to be an expensive experience.  For us who wear eyeglasses every day, glasses are necessities, not luxury.  We also believe that great value does not mean cheap merchandise.  Value is quality products at affordable price.  We sell quality brand name eyeglasses at a very affordable price.  We use Essilor, Varilux, HOYA, Ziess, Sola, Kodak, Seiko and many well-known venders for our optical lenses to ensure doctor approved optical clarity and prescription accuracy.


Eye Examination and Your prescription


Remember the selections you eye doctor asks you to choose: "1 or 2?  3 or 4?....".  Your answers tell doctor what your eyes can see.  The process is called subjective manifest refraction and the final product is your prescription.  If your answers are not correct, the prescription won't be correct either.  You will not be able to see well with the glasses made from the erroneous prescription.  We recommend that you have good rest the day before your refraction eye exam.


Select your eyeglasses:


Eyeglasses do more than just correct your vision.  They add to your image and personality!  They can be for business, fashion, athletics or others and A-1 Value Optical has a frame that is right for you!
