When I was a teenager, I worked for a chain of stores doing lab work to make eyeglasses. Then I started fitting eyewear as people from all walks of life entered with their prescription. 'All eyes are different' said the owner of this successful Michigan chain, and 'make sure people always understand all of their options.'
But today, more people want to be on their own to discover 'all of their options.' So, after many years of collaboration with other eyewear experts, we offer OpticalDirect... and you can just click or call for help when needed. It's educational, it's easy and a great way to try on as many pairs of eyeglasses as you want... virtually.

Last week we saw a woman who had been to several doctors. Every eyeglass Rx she got varied so much, and she could not see well with anything given. Of course, by the time she came to us, she was very frustrated and dubious we could do any better. At 26 years old, and reportedly good health, with a preliminary Rx for mild nearsightedness, all seemed very straightforward. But because of her past issues elsewhere, we had her blood sugar tested, and found it higher than normal. It was determined her body just could not keep the sugar metabolized properly, and this caused changes to her vision. After care for hyperglycemia, her vision return to normal and she did not need eyeglasses.
