Bailey Nelson - Eyewear You Need To See!

The problem that I have is that even though I like wearing my glasses, I hate that the high cost of prescription eyewear means I can’t change which glasses I choose to wear as often as I change which shoes or purse I feel like on any particular day.

That’s why when I discovered Bailey Nelson not only was I instantly enamoured with their exceptionally fabulous designs but then completely blown away by the... When I first walked into my local Bailey Nelson ay Square One in Mississauga, I was totally enamoured by the designs. Each pair of sunglasses retail for $145. And for single vision, low index prescription lenses. Higher index prescription lenses – like those outside +/-4 are $245, and for progressives, you just add $100. Which means high-index progressive lenses would be $345. The thing with Bailey Nelson is that they knew how hard it was to find cool.
