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.

Make sure you have a lot of money when you visit this place. I went in for reading glasses and I have insurance and my deductible was $600! Wow! Doc, is that US dollars or pesos?? I have two vision policies. And in the past I have always used both policies to get reading and sunglasses at various optical offices. The doctor went round and round with me about how I was wrong, and how I didn’t know what I was talking about and I could not use both policies and no insurance company would ever allow me to do that. Well, turns out I was right, and my insurance company called her to ask her why she didn’t let me use the two policies. This doctor was rude, demeaning, has no social skills, and should not be dealing with people period, and quite frankly $600 as a deductible for reading glasses is robbery in my book. I will never set foot in that office again. She must be giving her friends kick backs on her services so they can post good reviews about her. Terrible!

Dr. Chang and her staff are great! The most thorough, friendly exam I've ever experienced. Finding frames there was fun; they have a great selection. Highly recommend Dr. C's office for vision up-keep.
