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 want to give a shout out to Trisha. She went above and beyond for me as a Target customer that had nothing to do with optical. With her get up and go approach and enthusiam, she'd be the person you want servicing your optical needs. Thank you Trisha. Steve

I brought my own frames into Target Optical. They were Gucci designer frames. I paid for lenses and got measured. I was told it would take 2-3 weeks. After 3 weeks, I never received a call of text stating the glasses were ready for pickup so I called Target Optical. I was told the glasses were shipped and would arrive sometime during the week. I waited till the end of the week and didn’t receive a call or text. I called them on Saturday morning and was notified that the lab “lost” my glasses. When were they going to call and tell me this? Had I not called I would not have known about this. Further, my glasses weren’t lost. Someone clearly stole them with how shady the service has been. Then they stated they would provide me a frame that they had in store. They carry cheap frames in store. I want you to refund me for the cost I purchased these glasses for. Not to mention I’m now going to wait over a month before getting new glasses.

I’ve been going to the eye doctor for over 15 years now and this is by far the best experience ever had! Dr. Choe was absolutely amazing, so sweet and kind and very charismatic. I’ve never had an eye doctor like her. Fred helped me with picking out glasses and checking out and was very helpful and kind and gave me great suggestions. I was in and out within 30mins. I HIGHLY recommend them!

My experience was exactly the same as the other negative reviews—this was a two-month nightmare to get an updated prescription and new contacts that fit. My June appointment as a new client started 45 minutes late, the doctor seemed nice but rushed, the first round of shipping took six weeks with no updates, and then when those contacts didn’t fit, I had to chase them via phone for another two weeks to get a corrected prescription. They always promise to call you right back and never do. I finally got my hands on the updated prescription TODAY, end of August, and have immediately used it to order from somewhere else. They did offer to exchange my unopened contacts for the correct ones but I cannot bear the thought of spending another minute dealing with the disorganized front desk staff, so I’m just eating the cost and moving on.

I had to return a pair of prescription sunglasses due to the progressive lens. I dealt with Liz, who could not have been any nicer & professional. She figured out my problem and ordered a new set of lens. I highly recommend this Optical store, inside Target.
