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.

It's always a good experience for me when I go for my eye exam. The staff is very professional and it was the first time I saw Dr. Stahl and he was a hot. I usually see Dr. Calder. All the staff is very pleasant and thorough.

Paula K. Shimatsu-U. | Rating: 5 | Miyamoto Richard J OD
There is a great reason why this place gets 5 stars from so many people and his name is dr. Richard Miyamoto! He has received South Bay's best optometrist award and recognition a number of time simply because he is the kindest, most compassionate and amazing optometrists with a great staff that anyone could ever find! Just a week ago I had an incident with the use of exercise therapy bands. It slipped off my foot and hit my glasses and my eye. Even though he was not seeing patients, he met me at the office with his assistant while they were doing some other paperwork and ran a bunch of tests on his equipment as well as to evaluate and provide Comfort to me as well as the needed prescriptions and consolation. He was very encouraging and thoughtful, totally professional and concerned about my well-being. He is this way with everyone with whom he works including his employees. I have been fortunate to have known dr. Miyamoto four more years than I can even figure out! I highly recommend dr. Miyamoto and his staff for all of your Optometric needs. I often see two of his long time assistance, Erina and Catalina. They've been with dr. Miyamoto for I don't know how many years but definitely as long as I've been going! Dr. Gina Nakamura is another optometrist there who has worked with Richard for decades and is absolutely fantastic and also very good with patience! I highly recommend dr. Miyamoto wonderful practice and Shop. Their selection of glass frames is incredible and you can basically stop by at any time to have things adjusted and repaired. I wish all businesses were like this! Everything is kept neat clean and sanitized. That's always a plus! You see everyone there from the very young to the very elderly, and everything in between because we all love doctor Miyamoto!

I have been coming here for the past two years to see Dr. Kobayashi for contacts and glasses. He is very kind, very professional and passionate about his field! His staff is also very kind and prompt to follow up with you about appointments and inform you of when your contacts or glasses are ready! I am ready to have lasik done in the next year or so and he’s also been able to recommend the place to do so! I love coming here and admiring the Japanese cultural inclusion in his practice and have always felt welcome. Even though I don’t live anywhere near this office, this is definitely the only place I will visit as long as I’m here! Thank you to the staff for all of your help and especially to Dr. Kobayashi for the excellent care! I would highly recommend his practice! Thank you all!
