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.

Made an appointment for there early at 2pm...waited to be seen untill 3:10 and still couldn't get a straight answer on how much longer I would have to wait. My time is valuable too. What is the point of making your customers make appointments if you don't intend to see them when you schedule them? Also I shouldn't have to tell the same person 3 times who I am and that I have an appointment. I will be taking my bussiness somewhere where it is appreciated.

Don't let them clean your glasses (their microfibers are dirty and will scratch your new glasses lenses) Dislike this place. Firstly, everything seemed great about this place when I first signed up and ordered glasses but after getting warranty and replacements I've noticed how annoyed the staff became of me after getting my replacement. I picked up new glasses got them adjusted and without asking the staff grabs the lenses and then ferociously scratches them with the dirty fiber tower. It was all unnecessary since they were new lenses with no dirt on them. Their microfibers are filthy

Most toxic work environment I've ever worked in. Julie the manager was extremely unprofessional and talked horribly about every single person in the office. When confronted she cut all my hours for weeks. I went from 36ish hours a week for 6 months to 14 hours my last month there. Reported everything to HR and her boss and nothing was done. There were a total of three of us that reported her and emailed her boss justin and there was still nothing done. Such a bummer for such a amazing career opportunity to be ruined by someone so evil and spiteful and have no repercussions

I brought in my kids glasses and they repaired them right away with no hassle. He stepped on them the very next day and broke them entirely so they popped the lenses into a new frame for me on the cheap. Service with a smile too. Highly recommended.

Three weeks ago I ordered my so much needed two pairs of glasses and if it wasn't because I call them I would be still be waiting for these people to call me. Of course they claimed that they called me but my phone proves otherwise
