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.

Super slow service. I get the COVID 19 stuff but sheesh, my appointment started one hour ago & I’m still waiting to be seen by the optometrist! Never coming back to this location again. Had better service at the San Pedro location.

Rude Customer Service (Cristina) and Optometrist getting confused writing down correct prescription. Didnt bother re-doing the tests to ensure correct prescription but rather rushed me out of the office. Will be going to another location (Torrance).

Their service is amazing. I gog 2 pairs of glasses and I love them. I got so many compliments. They arrived really quick. And the prescription was super accurate. I definitely recommend this place. It's super affordable and the staff is super friendly. Dianna was great.

Had my lenses replaced and what I got back were a bent frame, lenses that aren't properly fitted, and sizing that is done poorly. The glasses flex outward. I have never seen glasses made so poorly. That's nearly $200 down the drain. Also my case I provided with my glasses was not returned to me. Did someone steal my case as well? Seriously this place is God awful. I rather catch cancer than shop here again.

Came in for an eye exam it was my first time. The receptionist was very informative answered all my questions without feeling rushed. Went to pick up my glasses, and the same receptionist was there, and she helped make adjustments; she was a huge help. I think her name was Christina? Overall a good experience. Definitely coming back to this store. Thank you!
