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.

So its closed for two months because of the covid I constantly called trying to get a new prescription or at least get it extended because I just ran out of contacts and cant reorder them without an up to date prescription. I asked the receptionist to speak to the Dr. to ask if I could at least buy a two week trial of contacts to at least hold me over to the next available date since I have horrible vision and they’re booked until june .I have no contacts left and all she said was no you should’ve renewed it earlier with attitude. So definitely never coming here again.

Have purchased my bifocal glasses here, many pairs. Everyone at this store is very helpful, attentive and professional. Friendly staffed, great prices (I always check the clearance/sale rack first, at 50% off, I’ve gotten many pairs from this rack) great selection and if you purchase the protection plan, which Is very affordable and worth every penny, any issues you have with frames or lenses - COVERED AT NO FURTHER COST TO YOU (accordingly with terms of plan) I’ve taken many a broken frame - in a flash they’re fixed in the spot.

The frame was on sale for $49 but they charged my eye insurance company highest price about $410 and asked me for co-payment $35. The store didn't give me any extra protection plan likes other eye glass store as least 1 year free fixing. Frame break too easy and weak just in 2 months. I have no place to fix it. Not worth it.
