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.

Howard Martin  |  Rating: 5  |  Dr. Daniel L. Sanders, OD

I have been seeing Dr. Sanders since the early 70s and he is as passionate about his practice today as he was back then. What impresses me his ability to keep up with the latest technology for I testing and examinations. I always leave feeling confident about my eyes. His ability to communicate and teach about your eyes in a timely manner is a mark of professionalism that I find rare today.

First time exam for contact lens, they just told me to bring the contact lens after 1 week. A week after i brought the contact lens there and they told me to reschedule because i didnt wear it and made another appointment in 2 weeks. Now i have to wait 3 weeks juat to get it done. Waste my time and money. I cant cancel it cz they took the copay already.
