The Consumer's Guide to Getting Value in Eyewear: (First Time, Every Time)
by Connie Gleason Choosing the right pair of eyeglasses may seem easy, but in fact, there are a lot of elements that need to be addressed. Many people may not know most states do not require training for those who fit, measure, or make eyewear. That is why it is important to know what to look for in a pair of glasses. Simple instructions on the parts of a frame, how it is measured and knowing if it fits you are just a few things this book will show you. Other interesting facts include outcomes with off-center fits, and indicators of misplaced bifocals or incorrectly sized temples (sidepieces). Should even one or combinations of these elements be errant, problematic glasses can result. With this book, easy-to-understand guidelines are given to help lead consumers to value in eyewear - optimal glasses for the dollars invested. This book can help with current and future eyewear purchases. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Connie Gleason obtained her M.Ed. in Adult Education and her B.A. in Business Management.
