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.

Normally I don’t see a huge difference in eye care providers, but this time I did and I will definitely be back. Dr. Keri helped me get a prescription that was better than I have seen in years. Not only that, but she was so kind, especially when my child care fell through last minute and I brought my wiggly one year old.

Simple, no fuss, very quick and perfect. Robert knows what to do and what frames fit. He is honest, not out to make a fast buck and convinced us that we really did not need a pair of sunglasses since the lenses we picked for normal vision would offer sufficient protection with the tint. Very good prices too. We were ripped off by a well known competitor before a Stanford Eye Doctor recommended this place.

I received my glasses yesterday and they are very nice and very good quality. In order to apologize for the long delay on my glasses order, the Owner and the lab offered me a pair of lenses for any prescription with any lens feature of my choice. I appreciate the gesture and have revised my review. I am quite sure that Lenscrafter would not have done the lens offer. Thank you.

Very, very happy with the eyeglasses I've gotten from Palo Alto Eyeworks, and with Robert's help and guidance and service in both selecting them and caring for them which have been great. Highly recommend.

I switched to them a year ago and have the whole family taken care of. They are absolutely delighted to work with and always do the best for their customers. In one occasion, my glasses was not build properly and they immediately took care of it. Highly recommended.
