I went to a qualified Eye Doc up North and got a prescription, but there wasn't time to get a new pair of glasses before I returned to Ajijic.
Later I checked out the various options lakeside and in Guad. I would have been happy at Costo, but chose the convenience of the the LCS. I went in to the visiting optometrist (she comes once per week from Guad), showed her the lens prescription and asked her to cut some new lenses for an extra pair of frames I had.
To her credit, she insisted on re-checking my eyes. Her new prescription was within a click (1/4 diopter) and a degree or three (spherical aberration) depending upon the eye. I got everything back one week later.
On my next visit to the states I had both the lenses and prescription checked by my optimolegist(spelling). She said that the new prescription was fine and then checked the quality of the lenses. They too were good.
Now don't ask me about insurance at the LCS.
