Why do eyeglasses cost so much?

Eyeglasses are a complex optical device that is manufactured with high-precision equipment. Often expensive materials are used for the glasses. All of this explains why eyeglasses can be expensive.

What should you do before buying glasses?

Let's look at what to look for when buying eyeglasses. The first is, of course, quality. The second is the choice of lenses of glasses. Here we focus attention on the material: they can be either glass or plastic. The third is the choice of frames.

What's the difference between expensive glasses and cheap glasses for vision?

The quality and accordingly the price of the lens depends on the presence of coatings on the lenses. The higher the price, the more coatings on the lens. Coatings make our vision more comfortable. Lens manufacturers do not stand still and improve the quality of lenses.

How do I know which glasses fit my face?

It's best if the width of the frame is equal to or slightly larger than the widest part of your face. The upper line of the frames should coincide with the line of eyebrows. Smooth shapes of glasses will emphasize rounded curves of the face. To emphasize high cheekbones choose the "butterfly" or "cat-eye" glasses.

Where can I see better with glasses or contact lenses?

With lenses, you can see better, so it turns out that extra obstacles don't distort the image. Lenses don't shed dust, don't catch glare from the sun and don't distort peripheral vision-no matter where we look, the image stays sharp.

I called Day Eye Care to get information on the lenses of my current glasses. I got these glasses from Day Eye Care less than 2 years ago. I was told the prescription has expired and they have no information on my past order of glasses, nor the results from my eye exam with them. I find this highly unprofessional and frustrating, as I can not get the proper information to order an affordable pair of glasses elsewhere. So, now, I will no longer be able to see clearly for an entire year.

Me and my daughter had a wonderful experience at Day Eye Care. The doctors and staff are really nice and caring. The office is very clean and I observed cleaning of instruments and hand washing. With Covid-19 being very contagious, everyone I encountered wore a face mask. That makes me feel safer. We picked out the glasses that best fit us. We should get them in 2 weeks! I give the a 10/10!

From the time my husband and I entered the doors the Welcome was beyond Fabulous. The entire team that took care of me and my husband provided excellent care. And Kiddos to Dr. Sharon Day. She took her time and explained everything that was going on with my eye treatment. I believe we have finally found an eye care home we can trust and value. Thank you Day Eye Care for the Superb job.
