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.

Buying my glasses at Wink Optics was a great experience. My sales associate was more than helpful with selecting the right frames, this was nice since they’re my first pair of glasses. The owner also spent some time with me and helped find the right fit. Fair price, good service and wonderful atmosphere. I’ll definitely go back and lead family & friends their direction!

Wink Optics has an amazing selection of high fashion brands of eyeglasses and sunglasses. Quynh and her team are very knowledgeable and helpful and made sure we chose the right style that look the best on us. I bought two pairs of sunglasses and my husband bought an Orgreen frame with progressive lenses which he loves. Excellent service and I highly recommend Wink Optics!

I have had wonderful help here! I’ve stopped in twice to get little fixes on old frames - not theirs - and received skilled help along with warmth and welcome. For sure, when it’s time to get new glasses, Marin Optometry will be my go-to provider!

I love my glasses. I get the most compliments from friends and even strangers. The quality is fantastic. The lenses have made all the difference. They don’t reflect when my picture is taken, they have stayed clear and I have no scratches. The people who work there were so helpful and pointed me in the right direction to choose frames that really matched my face and personality. They were honest, fair, kind and professional. I’ve referred several friends there. If you are looking for glasses, this is the place.
