LensCrafters or any 24hr eyeglass place in Playa?

My husband's glasses fell apart and are unfixable. (Yes, I know he should always travel with a spare pair, but.... ) Is there a 24hr eyeglass place there? He doesn't have a copy of his prescription, so may need an exam too.
Thanks!

There is no 24 hour eyeglass place that I know of locally.

All the optometrists and oculists I know about here in Playa (which isn't all of them) use a lab in Merida to grind lenses, but there might be one or more in Cancun also. Ask a local optometrist if there's a lab in Cancun.

Try Sam's club or Costco. I know they sell glasses, and think they have an Optometrist on staff. Sam's is in Playa del Carmen; Costco is in Cancun.

I was in Sam's Club, Playa this morning. I checked with the optometry area and was told that they could have prescription glasses made in about 8 days .
Being this is Mexico, I would guess closer to 10 days .
