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 have been coming here for the last 3 years and everyone here is very caring and patient. Their experience is superb. You ask and they have all the answers. Would recommend to anyone looking to get glasses for the first time and for those just looking to get another pair. Prices are very good as well.

Phenomenal service. Sergio is the only person I trust in the area to service my glasses. He has brought back to life several of my favorite frames over the years, multiple times each. I have also ordered lenses through him & the service was excellent. A true Silicon Valley gem. Cannot recommend enough.

My wife has been a patient of Costco for a long time. She has seen different ophthalmologist in the past, but non as rude and as careless as Dr. Luu. She was out of contact lenses and had to leave for an emergency trip. So She called Dr. Luu's office to get an emergency pair of contact lenses to use on the trip. Dr. Luu did not show any sympathy and did not give her the correct contact lenses. Coming back form the trip my wife called to make an appointment to see Dr. Luu to make sure she gets the right contacts. Again Dr. Luu did not have an appointment available to give her on that day. But Dr. Luu told my wife to stop by and pick up the contact lenses. Of course, Prescriptions was never ready for contact lenses to be picked up. She complained to Dr. Luu. And instead of taking are of her Dr. Luu screamed "SHUT UP" to my wife in front of all the patients and other Costco customers. This was so horrendous that all the Costco managers showed up to apologize for Dr. Luu rude behavior to my wife. Dr. Luu still has not apologized for her extreme rude behavior to my wife. I dont want any one to go through what my wife went through. So, I will not recommend her.

I have known Dr. Howard Rose for over 20 years, he was a fine optometrist trained at UC Berkeley, sadly he is now retired and I will miss his humor and baseball stories of the Pacific Coast League players. He introduced me and my daughter Mariel to Dr. Zahn and she is very professional and courteous. The staff is still the same and they are a crack professional team that provides excellent customer service with a smile. The office has superb equipment including a Optos Retina exam machine that provides the ability to track your inner eye health over time. This is a small business that is a treasure to the community.

I was impressed with the office’s concern for my health and welfare starting with my temperature being taken. With a compromised immune system I really appreciated all the precautions taken for my benefit and the benefit of staff. To say there is an enormous selection of frames would be an understatement. I also appreciated having the frames brought to me as I sat. Due to back issues I was allowed to take my time and make the perfect selection. I also felt my exam was exceptional. She took her time and I actually felt pampered and dealt with with great care. Thank you for making my visits exceptional.
