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.

We have been coming to Dr Lam for about eight years now and we’re so pleased with the service that she has given us and the knowledge and experience! Her staff has been well trained and we appreciate everything that they have done for us in the past few years. We have now moved to Wickenburg Arizona and still make the trip back in for examinations because of her expertise thank you Dr Lam for such a great experience!

Eye Care North was so conveniently close that I was hoping it would be a good place to take my eye care business. It turns out to be a well established business of 8 years and all of the employees are very nice and professional. From the receptionist, to the young man who took my initial readings, to Dr Julie Lam to the woman who helped me with frames, everyone was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. I’ll definitely be returning there for my annual exam!

I would like to share how completely satisfied I am with Dr Julie Lam & her staff! Everyone was friendly, yet professional. I got in within a week of calling for a routine eye exam. The office was efficient & comfortable. Dr Lam is soft spoken & friendly. She thoroughly explained everything & answered all my questions. I highly recommend Eye Care North! I would give them 6 stars if I could!

Dr. Julie Lam and her staff are GREAT. Very nice. Every step during my visit was explained in detail and no trying to push me into unnecessary purchases or treatment. Dr. Lam came highly recommended by a coworker and I see first hand why. I would highly recommend Dr. Lam to anyone needing a great eye doctor.
