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.

We’ve always received great service from the RPV store. Dr. Ingrid, the optometrist and Sharon the manager were very friendly and helpful. Big shout out for Jimmy! He was incredibly informative, patient and knowledgeable. Jimmy gave me great advice and helped me make the purchases that suited me. RPV rocks!

I just had my annual eye exam at westmont optometry and it was a very positive experience. I was able to book my appointment through text messaging without any problems. The wait time upon arrival was minimal and I was seen by Dr. Nguyen almost immediately. She was very thorough and knowledgeable taking time to explain what she was doing and the results of each test. Then the optician, Jen, took great care in helping me find frames with the right fit and look for my face. She didn’t just say “yeah or nay” but explained why certain frames were better or worse for me. I am confident that I will be completely satisfied with the two pairs of glasses I ordered!

The optometrist is outstanding. I had problems with my previous doctor and she took over with professionalism and a sincere sense of care. The staff is also friendly and helpful. I couldn't believe they covered the cost of new lenses when my vision changed. I have referred them to all of my friends.

Guy working dramatically rolled his eyes when I asked about contacts because that meant more work for him. My new eye doctor revealed that the glasses they gave me do not even match the prescription. Highly recommend this place if you're a fan of wasting your time!
