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.

Very disappointed. I scheduled an appointment for an contract lens exam. I was told on the phone that I would have to pay $30 copy. When I get there I get examined for glasses, obviously the doctor didn't bother reading the paperwork I filled out that stated I was only interested in an contract lens exam since my glasses are less than an yr old. Then they don't have the contact lenses in stock for me to try, then they try to charge me $150. For trying contacts. I ended up telling them I'm not interested and they charged me $30. And I left with no prescription for glasses or contacts. Stay away, and don't let them scam you for nothing!

Yesterday I had my first appointment with Hertzog Family Eye Care. As soon as I walked in I was greeted by friendly staff and they had me back starting my exam quickly. Dr. Harter was very friendly, upfront, honest, and informed. After my exam I picked out a pair of new glasses which was quick and easy. I was in and out in about 45 min from start to finish. I look forward to getting my new glasses and making Hertzog Family Eye Care my new eye care home.
