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 had a good experience with the initial eval and picking my glasses. However, when I went to pick up my 2 pairs of glasses that I had ordered, I told the girl I felt very dizzy and objects looked weird. She said it could be due to my astigmatism & to try them out for a week & if I still had issues to call back. Well, I tried for a week & I'm still having the same issues, so I called back & they said it’d be $40 to even recheck my eyes(I’m sure there’s other fees to fix my prescription) So on top of the $200 I paid out of pocket they want me to come out of pocket more money. No thanks.

Don't waste your time with these clowns. Scheduling is a nightmare. Juggled scheduling for 2 weeks to accommodate them then they called to confirm the day before and promptly called back a few hours later and cancelled all our appointments. My time is worth money. No professionalism.

A husband and wife team--Dr. James and Dewanna Staup. I've seen Dr. James Staup for years. He has a pleasant quite manner and always takes time to explain whatever questions I have. The staff is extra friendly.

I have had glasses or contacts for 20 years. I have seen many Optometrist over the years in huntsville. I can say with out any doubt that I will be going back to Profmance Vision for a long time. Everyone there made me feel welcome, and not like another number they were trying to get through the door. Thank you and I will see you guys soon.

Patti and Hannah are terrible and have no clue about frames - but that’s exactly what you’d expect from an optician in Walmart right??? My mistake for even giving it a try. Don’t let it be yours as well.
