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.

DO NOT COME TO THIS CLINIC! My 72 year old mother was given an appointment in which she was on time for, she is in a wheelchair. While the store is wheelchair accessible, the clinic is NOT. She was spoken to very rudely by a young woman named Jamie (I believe) and told that if she couldn't walk they could not see her. My mother phoned me very upset and in tears so I called and spoke with the same young woman that she had dealt with and she advised that the doctor wasn't even there and had left hours prior to my mother's appointment. When I asked about accessibility for wheelchairs she snickered and said it was a tight squeeze through the door but a person would still have to walk once in the actual clinic. My mother is able to transfer from her chair to another but can't walk more than a few steps- I will be filing a formal complaint as this does not comply with the the Americans with Disabilities Act... I would strong suggest that YOU not seek vision care here.

The staff is very friendly and professional. They make you feel welcomed, the building is very clean and sheek. I'd suggest anyone to visit their establishment if you're looking for an eye dr.

Dr Hoang gave me a bad prescription and I didn’t realize it until after I had ordered my new glasses. She also gave me the wrong contacts which I had to wear bc I threw away my existing contacts after the appointment. Big mistake on my part bc the ones she gave me, gave me a really bad headache and I ended up having to take an entire day off of work to get it all straightened out with another optometrist and Dr Hoang didn’t even try to make it right. I should have read the reviews on her before making an appointment. Lesson learned. I will warn everyone I know not to waste their time here.

This was my first eye doctor visit in a good long while and I felt like my concerns were taken seriously. The doctor was very nice, and the girl who did the initial tests for me, like the puff of air and stuff, was darling. I’m pretty sure her name was Haley. The front desk girls were a little snippy and cold but working in a client facing job is hard and frustrating. The help picking out my frames was great, and if I remember correctly, I chose the first pair she found for me cause I liked them so much. Overall, it was a great experience.

I got the same professional care as last time. EXCEPT it was very Cold in the clinic. Dr. Neal answered all my questions about contacts vs. Glasses to help me make an informed decision. The technician even offered to have my new glasses delivered to a location nearer to my home.
