Does it matter where I get my eyeglass lenses from?

Is there a difference in quality between having them sent off and getting them from a place like EyeMasters? My optometrist office takes 5 - 10 days to get me my glasses because they send them off to get the lenses put it. EyeMasters can hand them to me within an hour because they have their own cutting labs.

    Put on a pair of rubber gloves before you set up to do it.Then use a cotton swab spread the Armour Etch on both sides of the lenses. Wait for 5 minutes.Rinse the lenses in warm water to remove the Armour Etch cream.Finally dry off the lenses with a clean, lint-free cotton cloth. Then the scratch-resistant coating will get off.

    There is no difference where you get your eyeglass lenses from. The quality is the same.The only difference is that it takes more time if you have them send off.

    I think the lenses of the same brand should have the same quality. But some stores will sell fake lenses. We might get a pair of lenses of poor quality if we don't know how to distinguish the quality of lenses. So I suggest you to buy a pair of glasses in big eyeglasses stores that has good reputation.

    There are different brands of lenses. Of course there are some differences. But you can choose the lenses of good quality. Maybe they will be more expensive than regular lenses.

    I think you can choose EyeMaster because this can help save your time. Maybe the lenses are the same.

    Sometimes, I will buy glasses online because the glasses sold online are much cheaper than that sold in any physical shops. Sometimes I will buy a pair of glasses from a nearby eyeglasses store. They can make a pair of prescription glasses for me immediately according to my prescription. I am too eager to get my glasses so I won't spend 5-10 days to get lenses.
