Choosing the right pair of eyeglasses may seem easy, but in fact, there are a lot of elements that need to be addressed. Many people may not know most states do not require training for those who fit, measure, or make eyewear. That is why it is important to know what to look for in a pair of glasses.
Simple instructions on the parts of a frame, how it is measured and knowing if it fits you are just a few things this book will show you. Other interesting facts include outcomes with off-center fits, and indicators of misplaced bifocals or incorrectly sized temples (sidepieces). Should even one or combinations of these elements be errant, problematic glasses can result.
With this book, easy-to-understand guidelines are given to help lead consumers to value in eyewear – optimal glasses for the dollars invested. This book can help with current and future eyewear purchases.

Jasmine, a rebellious seventeen-year-old, is in love with Kirk Lanera. When she becomes involved with him and his friends, who pull pranks and cause trouble, she is disowned by her parents and forced to leave her house. With Kirk, Jasmine leaves her family and travels to New Orleans, where Kirk’s longstanding sexual advances become more persistent and culminate when he rapes Jasmine. When she refuses to have sex with him again, he abandons her, leaving her to roam the streets on her own.
Starving and exhausted, Jasmine collapses after several days on her own. She is discovered by Charles and Julia, a kindly older couple who take her in and nurse her back to health. To help support herself, Charles, and Julia, Jasmine gets the first job she can: as a prostitute at The Elite, a brothel that is disguised as a fancy restaurant. She gains instant status upon her arrival and makes many friends, and she even falls in love with and marries one of her clients: Jeffery Blake.
Will The Elite ever succumb to the many police raids? Will Jasmine ever see her parents or her brother again? These questions and more are answered in the final pages of Jasmine, a classic rags-to-riches tale.
