Little Rock Eye Clinic examines visitors' eyes with the precision gained from more than 55 years of continuous eye-care experience, offering full exams and a collection of designer glasses for the stylish seer. For the eye examination, eyeballs are gently regarded by one of the clinic’s physicians, who looks for the presence of cataracts and checks the pressure of the eye for pre-glaucoma. Prescriptions are written based on the acuity test, previous prescriptions, and the eyeballs' ability to memorize the visual encyclopedia on a time limit. Once peepers are swathed in the reassuring glow of a prescription, customers are able to browse through accessories for the perfect set of glassy shields. Experienced opticians aid in picking out glasses from the myriad of designer labels, using the prescription to designate single vision lenses for fashionable Vogue frames ($210 on average) or a lightweight Dior spectacle set ($420 on average), with upgrades to the lenses available for additional costs. With the thinnest and lightest weight products available, opticians also boast a speedy service, with a same-day turnaround to ensure spectacle seekers can resume chronic winking from behind the gleaming new frames.
