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.

The doctor was great and professional. The front staff were sarcastic. If you have double insurance coverage, they will only process one payment request, you pay the remaining and must file/deal with the secondary coverage reimbursement. Also, I am in a power wheelchair and was unable to do 3 of the tests because they equipment is not set up to accommodate the chair. Also, if your condition is dry eyes, skip this appointment, as you will be referred to an Ophthalmologist. Appointment hours and weekends are helpful.

Highly disappointed after being seen here for many years. Staff has slowly declined in knowledge and courtesy. I had my Saturday appt for over a week now and less than 24 hours before appt time I get a call that it is pushed back a hour. This makes a huge difference when you have your day planned after the appointment. I will be leaving this office and on a search for new optometrist. Not a happy person.

This place is just horrible. If you want lousy service then go right ahead and go to this place. The staff is clueless and makes people with appointments wait for hours, until they are able to be seen. If I could rate this place half a star I would.

Service was exceptional. The provider was very professional and informative. She made sure that everything she was explaining was understood and she also made sure to check in after giving information to make sure I was understanding. Very compassionate and caring provider. I am extremely happy with the service.

I made an appointment, when I came in an adult with her two children came in after me and they took then before me. My appointment was at 5 and I wasn't seen until 5:45. The receptionist told me I could go shopping there would be plenty of time. Then when I came in the doctor doesn't ther minutes on each eye. I have been going to optometrists for 30 years and have never had this happen before. I ordered my glasses and when they came the prescription was wrong in one eye, probably because it took her 3 minutes to examine it. So I had to come back, make another appointment, and waste my time. As I sit here she is 10 minutes late and trying to read the review I've written rather than help her patient. Btw she spent a total of 12 minutes examining the person in front of me. It's like an eye-mill here. Do not go here if you want a legitimate examination. And now I have to go see another optometrist because she did it wrong, again.
