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.

You, my Doctor and your great staff, not only gave me my eyesight back, but helped me with unlocking my true eyesight that had been there all this time hidden inside me wasting away and never experienced any improvement in my eyes and my vision simultaneously, now that alone is an amazing godsend to me; After living with poor eyesight since I was 5 years old now I can actually believe it when I say that: I think for the first time in my life, that my eyesight might actually get better over time by keeping you as my eye-doctor, I hope to keep experiencing further improvement in my sight, thank you very much and may God bless the wonderful work you all do.

I had such a great visit with Dr. Strickland. I actually needed to be seen right away, and when I called they said to come on in and they would take care of me.
