CAN I BRING IN AN OUTSIDE PRESCRIPTION?
Of course…as long as it’s valid and not outdated.
CAN I BRING IN MY OLD FRAMES?
BMEC carries hundreds of contemporary styles, but what kind of people would we be if we forced you to get rid of the frames that you love? Just bring them in and we’ll create your lenses to fit.

Annually as long as you aren’t experiencing any medical conditions or abnormalities with your eyes.
WILL I BE DILATED?
That’s your choice, but after beginning the exam your doctor will make a recommendation.
