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.

Great place for eyecare! Staff very friendly and Dr. Cox was excellent! I was new to the area and stumbled across them on google and am was not disappointed. Office made me feel more like a person rather than just a number which i greatly appreciated! Got some help picking out some more stylish glasses too(which my wife appreciated lol)

Absolutely recommend Farmington Eye Care! It was my family’s first visit with them over spring break & they are all so friendly! Once my little boy got over his shyness he talked anyone’s ear off that would listen (that says a lot about the environment) Then when I picked up my new glasses today I don’t know if my eyes have just changed or if Dr. Cox just got my Prescription spot on and none of the other drs have before... but WOW! They are by far my favorite glasses I have had! Not only can I see but they are super cute! If your reading this review bc your searching for a new eye doctor... this place is your place it’s the one you’ve been looking for! I’m so grateful to call this our families permanent eye doctor! -Brittanie/Jason Fisk
