If you need progressive lenses this is the store to go to. The owner is very good at fitting them and stands by his work if there are any problems. I would never purchase hard to fit glasses anywhere else; when they done wrong they are terrible and you just can't see. My glasses are almost like my own eyes and I don't every have trouble getting used to them. The last time I purchased a pair, my eye doctor did not give me strong enough reading area, and he knew to change them enough so that the reading area would not make feel dizzy, and remade the lenses. That is the kind of professional that you should deal with.

My family and I have been going to Eyeland vision-Katy for years. I just want to say that Dr. L. Duong and Mrs. Linda are awesome. I had a problem with the glasses that I purchased and was very dissatified, and just wanted to p/u the glasses and take them else where to correct after I paid all of that money. However, Mrs. Linda and Dr. Duong were incredible in helping to resolve the matter, and making me feel like i mattered as a patient. Thank you Mrs. Linda and Dr. Duong you both are truly appreciated!

Tips & Advices
A regular eye exam focuses on the general health of your eyes, while a contact lens exam is focused specifically on how your eyes react to contact lenses. A contact lens exam tests how well you see while wearing contacts. Your eyes are also evaluated to make sure your tear ducts produce enough tears to allow you to comfortably wear contact lenses.
The cost of contact lenses depends on the type of lens being purchased and the vision problem that is being corrected. For nearsightedness, you'll be able to purchase a box of six lenses for roughly $25. Each lens needs to be replaced after a couple of weeks, which will require you to purchase 10 boxes of lenses each year, for a total of $250 per year. Contact lenses that treat other conditions like astigmatism and presbyopia are more expensive, and can cost $500-$700 a year.
Some people may experience certain side effects when wearing contact lenses. Dry eyes may result, and some people may experience eye or eyelid inflammation. Some contact lens wearers may also develop allergic reactions to the liquid contact lens solution that is used to clean and disinfect the lens.
The cost of an eye exam can range $50-$250 or more. The cost will depend on the tests that are included, and whether the exam involves a contact lens fitting. The cost of the test will also hinge on whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
An eye exam typically takes 20-30 minutes. If additional tests are required, the process could take longer. Eye exams test your sight, but they are also used to make sure your eyes are in good health. During the test, your eye care professional will ask if you've been experiencing any problems with your vision. Your eyes will be examined using a device known as an ophthalmoscope, and the movement of coordination of your eyes will be checked.
