If we have your lenses in stock and the frames you choose are readily available we can make your glasses on-site in about thirty minutes to one hour. If it is in the case where we must order your lenses and/or frames it can take from three days up to two weeks. In this case we will keep you updated on the status of your order.

The Anti-reflective, or AR, is a durable coating that is applied to the lenses to help eliminate the reflections and glares off the lens surface. The AR coating allows more light to pass through making your lenses look more invisible.
Plastic or CR39 is the most basic lens material it is slightly scratch resistant and somewhat durable compared to glass. Polycarbonate is a more denser and scratch resistant kind of plastic that does not shatter or break easily. It is also lighter than the plastic. This or high -index is usually recommended for children 12 and under no matter what their prescription may be. Hi-index or Super Hi-index is a plastic that is 3 times more denser and thinner than the CR39. This is usually recommended for those who have extremely astigmatism or prescription.

Yes, Irving Vision Care does take Care Credit. Care Credit allows you to pay over a set amount of time rather than having to pay the full sum at the time of treatment.
No, the prescription will be different mainly due to the fact that your contacts sit directly on top of your eye while your glasses sit further away.
During a contact lens fitting, the curve and diameter of your eyes are measured in order to ensure you receive lenses that fit accurately and work well for you. If you have not previously worn contact lenses, training will be provided by one of our staff members to show you how to put your lenses in, take them out, and properly store and care for them. At the end of the exam, you will receive trial contact lenses to wear for a period of time, and then you must return for a follow-up visit to ensure the contact lenses are not causing any issues. Once the Doctor determines that the brand and prescription are a good match for you, they will finalize your prescription.The follow-up does not cost anything it is included in the fitting cost.
Yes, if we do not carry a specific style or model frame we will either order them for you, or help you find another location to find those particular frames.
