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 have been coming here for years now. The staff most of the time is very welcoming and polite. Today I brought my son in for a follow up appointment on his eye glasses because he has been wearing them for 3 weeks now and his glasses were too strong.Today I heard the staff have a discussion about my son's prescription and the Receptionist Jolynn was very Rude and Unprofessional. Normally she is very nice and professional. However today I Literally heard her make a very Rude comment that was directed towards me. So I confronted her about it and she got an attitude and didn't apologize or even acknowledge her wrong doing.You can't make rude comments towards customers in a public forum. Her behavior was very unprofessional. I will be discontinuing my services here.

They do not honor their appointments. I scheduled my appointment over 2 weeks ago. The lady I spoke with over the phone, took my info and I gave her my insurance numbers which she looked up on the computer and verified it was active and set me with an appointment for June 2nd at 3 PM. I arrived about 2:30 and was told I didn't have an appointment scheduled. Excuse me! I took off work, brought my glasses and insurance cards and I don't have an appointment. I then asked for my medical records and the lady stated it will be a five dollar charge and the doctor has to approve having copies made but he is at lunch. I'm not paying anything for my records. So I waited until 3 to get my papers then left...furiously! At about 3:17 pm they were calling me back. I will never use them again nor will I recommend them to anyone. They should have honored my appointment, after all, it wasn't my mistake but theirs. The receptionist should have went out of her way to rectify the situation, I found her to be rude and I think the Faulkners should train their staff to deal with these situations. They blamed it on a glitch

This was my very first visit and will be my very last… Mrs Faulkner is rude, and condescending… and no I’m not the only one who has experienced this type of treatment from Mrs Faulkner… I’ve spoken with 5 people (and I’m sure if I kept looking I’d find waaay more) that have went to Faulkner Eye clinic and have all experienced the same… so I will get my contacts and will never return if your reading this I would suggest going else where we have plenty of eye doctors in the area…

Dr. Faulkner was very kind and thorough. She talked me through the process, since I didn't know a whole lot at the time. The other employees were efficient with testing and choosing glasses. Aforementioned glasses were ready in less that an I week. I was very impressed.
