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.

Great experience getting my eye exam today. I have been a patient of Dr. Johnson's for many years. He is knowledgeable, a good listener and caring. When I have needed to speak to him over the phone, he always gets back to be right away. The staff is excellent, friendly and efficient. Thank you Beach Vision Center.

Always a pleasant experience having my eye exam here. They are always friendly, efficient and quick. I really love not having to have my eyes dilated. It is well worth the added cost, and looking at the "photo" of your eye is amazing.

Insisted on scanning my i.d in the system,I explained that I had been subject to id theft and didnt see the need for this. I confirmed with my insurance that it wasnt required that I do this, only that I present my id upon receiving services. The fact that they insisted upon this without any clear basis and for a new client lets me know it probably wasn't a good fit for me. Please do your research before choosing a new optometrist.
