Optical Services from Los Algodones Medical Guide

Most people believe that sight is their most important sense. We are very visual beings. When asked if we’d rather lose our sight or our hearing, almost everyone replies that they’d rather lose their hearing. We need our sight for pretty much every activity we do.

Yet for many, visiting an optometrist, getting new glasses or contacts and other basics is often beyond financial reach. If a person is uninsured, he or she might not have the means to purchase a pair of glasses for him or herself, or for another member of the family. Imagine if you had to purchase glasses for a number of family members at the same time.

That’s why Los Algodones Medical Guide offers a list of experienced optometrists, many of whom have been trained in American schools and speak English fluently. Discover how affordable it is to purchase glasses and contact lenses for the entire family in Los Algodones, Mexico.

By going a few miles south of the border to Los Algodones, Mexico just 10 miles west of Yuma, Arizona, you can get access to the prescription glasses or lenses that you and your family need for a fraction of the price that you’d pay in the United States. Of course eye exams are available too.

Seeing Well and Looking Good

machineOur face expresses who we are. Our appearance is important to us, and our eyes are one of our main natural means of expression. That’s why it’s important to have a nice-looking set of glasses. In fact, in Mexico many Americans can afford the fashion frames they want but can’t afford in the United States. You may be able to afford prescription sunglasses too.

However, if you think your face looks better without glasses, you can always get affordable contact lenses in Mexico too.

Accidents Happen

Because glasses can break, even a responsible adult might find him or herself with reduced vision because of an inconvenient accident. If you only own one pair of glasses, this leaves you in a vulnerable position, which may include being unable to work or drive. That’s why it’s a good idea to have an extra pair of glasses, just in case.

Children and Teenagers

Children and teenagers are not known for taking care of things, and lost glasses are a common problem. When a child or a teenager breaks or loses his or her glasses, it can be a frustrating and worrisome experience for the parent. If your child is wearing glasses for the first time, maybe it would be better to have a spare “training” pair in case the child is careless.

Teenagers also tend to prefer contact lenses once they reach a certain age, and they will let you know that their old glasses are just not acceptable in their social circle.

Whatever your reasons for getting prescription glasses, frames or contact lenses, Los Algodones Medical Guide has you covered and can help connect you with optometrists and vision specialists to meet all of your affordable optical needs.
