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.

I've been going here as long as I've needed glasses, and they've always been helpful and kind. Even if I need to make a same day appointment they normally find time to squeeze me in. I love it here

Ive been coming to Visionmax for around 10 yrs. and have been very happy the whole time. Dr. Han is incredible she is very professional. She is knowledgeable, thorough and kind, definitely a doc you can trust with your eyes. She just fantastic. The reason for my low review is I went and asked a member of the staff if I could buy one pair of my contact lenses to hold me over till I got paid ( as I've done in the past) I was due for a annual eye exam and need more contacts but didn't have the funds at that time. The lady I was talking to gave me a pair of contact lenses and when I asked her how much for them she said no charge but after that she went on to scold me over and over agin how I cant have another pair and how she was making a note on the account so it wont work if I ask someone els for another pair. I expected to pay for the pair I never asked her for anything free. She talked to me like I was trying to con her out of a pair of lenses then treated me like a child. I was so shocked by this I insisted to pay for them, she insisted to give them to me. I was so embarrassed and a bit upset that I just left. She made me feel so terrible that I went and found another place. :(

Very happy to have found this place. Optometrist Catherine Han is great. Friendly, accurate, easy to talk to. The man who helps with the glasses is also very nice, relaxed and helpful. Good selection of glasses too.

Asia was helping our family to get our new glasses. Her awesomeness skills helped getting satisfied selections that we needed. Her constant smile and her suggestions made us very comfortable and happy. Please give her a huge raise. I would recommend this place to get the your glasses.

Horrible customer service by OLGA (the manager). The month and a half ago I came to Walmart vision center to get contacts and eyeglasses. The doctor made a slight mistake in the prescription so I had to come back and change the prescription. I’ve been waiting for my contacts for a month and when I came back to ask how much longer do I have to wait for them, they lied that they offered me a different brand of contacts, so I wouldn’t have to wait, and I refused it, WHICH WASN’T TRUE! Nobody offered me anything!Do you think I would wait a month and a half to get the contacts if I could get a another brand without the wait instead??? I wish I had a camera footage or something like this. They called the security on me and my husband for complaining, and we are not abusive people. The security guy listened to my husband and took his side and said, that if it was his daughter he would complain too. I was crying, by the office by my self and OLGA came back to me and shamed me for complaining, and said that I am lying and I cannot talk to them like this. And I wasn’t even rude to her, all I wanted them to fix the problem because I payed $300 and was left with nothing. Plus they kept calling me, saying that my contacts are ready to be picked up and in reality there was nothing to pick up. The other time they called me and said that I have an appointment at 4 pm, and I said I didn’t even schedule anything, so how is it even possible?? They called me Barbara and I’m completely different customer, they mixed up the orders, conversations and appointments… I see a lot of people complain about OLGA the manager so hopefully she will be fired because the vision center will have less and less customers every year. I have nothing against the doctors who work there, they are very professional. Just because the technicians are clueless and the manager are rude, unprofessional and disrespectful I wouldn’t recommend for anyone to go there. Spend your money somewhere else where they have good customer service and respect for you.
