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.

$50 eye exam. Plus $20 for dilation. Plus $90 for soft contact lens fitting. Xavier is very knowledgeable and helpful. Ok selection of glasses. It gets very expensive when you start adding extras. $485 out the door for 1 pair of kids glasses!

Being fitted for the glasses was decent enough but the problems came afterward. In the first place I asked if I got a discount from my insurance. They told me they checked and there was none. After I checked my policy I should have gotten one. Secondly after having the glasses for about 4 months one of the nose pieces fell off. I took them in and the employee acted like it was a major inconvenience and if I could wait she would fix them. About 3 months later a screw worked loose and another nose piece fell off. I took them back and was ignored for the first few minutes then was asked if I could be helped. I explained what happened and the clerk said there would be a charge for fixing the glasses. I explained I had them less than a year and why didn't the warranty cover it? She said the warranty only covered the frames and nose pieces wear out. I haven't seen such bad customer service in a long long time and would advise anyone who thinks about Wal-Mart vision center to reconsider.

This Walmart Vision Center has the best staff members from Doctor to technicians. Their customer service outshines any other Walmart Vision Center that I have been to in the past. Jimmy and Monica are very professional and knowledgeable in their field. Thank you for all you do.

I had an eye exam and got glasses there exactly four years ago. Service at that time was less than stellar but acceptable. My plastic lenses were horribly scratched after just a few months but lenses aren't covered by the warranty. Of course the frames broke at 15 months. Two months past the warranty period. I'd selected middle of the road priced frames and was definitely disappointed with the product overall ($400 one pair bifocals). Today I'm going to a different provider and needed my prescription to [compare and] assess the deterioration of my sight. I called and talked to Pat. She was quite pleasant and professional. Not only did she provide my prescription information but she happlily explained what the numbers meant when I asked. Great customer service, Pat! Thank you! Pat got fives stars. Initial appointment got three stars. Product quality got one and a half stars.

The Dr gets 5 stars but the billing department should get no stars. When I ordered 2 pair of glasses I was told that my insurance would cover all except $66.40. I paid the $66.40 and have my bank statement and my original receipt to prove it. Now, 6 months later, I get a bill showing the insurance did not pay everything and I owe $67. They obviously billed the insurance and did not give me credit for my payment.
