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 got my 1st (2) pair of glasses from this center...one of the pairs I did not like the frame, so I was able to return them for different frames with no hassle at all. The associate working the center "Mark P." was extremely patient and helpful.
Michael Downs | Rating: 5 | LensCrafters
Very helpful and friendly. He picked out several pairs for me to try. He actually talked with me. I have not encountered anything like this since the Pandemic. I thought courtesy was dead and gone but your staff proved me wrong. I am glad to say. Thank You for making it a pleasant experience.

I only give 1 star for the doctor. I went here today to receive an eye exam and the ladies in the front were SOO RUDE. The doctor was fine, though his eye exam was lightning speed...I feel I didn't get a comprehensive exam. He appeared qualified, at least. This center needs qualified, caring staff who have training in customer service.

I am a Walmart worker, and have a vision plan through Walmart. I came here because it's covered through my plan, and online it said that Walk ins were available. I wanted to come and ask him questions about my plan because I wasn't sure exactly what was covered or how I needed to go about having it covered. This lazy worker would not even get off of her chair to come up to the front to ask my questions and they don't allow anyone into the store due to covid-19 restrictions. She was so incredibly rude and refused to answer any of my questions so I decided to step away from the counter and call my insurance provider to ask what was covered and how I should go about making an appointment. The woman on the phone told me that any Walmart vision center should be able to help me, and that walk-ins are available. So I went back to the vision center to ask why we weren't able to be seen, and she still refused to answer my questions she was incredibly rude and said like I said I have an appointment on April 22nd. I was very frustrated at this point, so I decided to head over to Walmart's customer service desk to ask the store manager what I could do. I did not take my frustration out on the store manager because I know that is not her responsibility to take care of the vision center. However I will not be returning to this vision center because the people working there are lazy and very rude. If you have a Walmart dental plan or a vision plan I recommend definitely not coming to this Walmart. At my Walmart store we have the goal of working together as a team. Working for Walmart sucks and it's important to support each other cuz we're all suffering through it. The way that a Walmart worker could treat another one this way is absolutely deplorable.
