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.

This office decided that they will force you to pay extra for a reading of your eye. I will explain myself. Few years back this doctor decided to invest on a machine that was going to read the inside of your eye to see if you have any health problems. At first there was a small charge of $5 dollars and it was optional, then few years later the charge whent up to $10 dollars but it was optional if you wanted to take it or not since it is not covered by any insurance. Well, this year 2020 the doctor decided to charge $15 dollars and to be mandatory for everyone to take it. However, if you are older than 50 it will cost you 30 because of your age. The worse part is that is a useless tool and diagnostic. A friend of mine decided to go and she decided to pay the full 30 since she's older than 50 and her vains were a little inflammated and it seems like her cholesterol might be a little on the higher level, according to the Doctor, but she already knew about her cholesterol. What this machine fail to do is do to a full or more accurate diagnostic. A few days later she went to her DM doctor and she was diagnosed with diabetes. She paid $30 for a mandatory fee that is useless. Needless to say I will not going back to that doctor Idol.

I love going here to get my glasses here. I've always had good experiences here, and Dr. Dixon has even given me a free frame before while I waited for my new glasses to come in since my frames were broken.

I highly recommend Dr. Carter to anyone for eye care and/or emergencies. Dr. Carter is simply amazing! I called him on a Sunday evening to see if he could see my father for an eye trauma that occurred and without hesitation he was able to see my dad that night! Now, my father is doing so much better and I cannot thank him enough for what he did for my dad and I! So thank you very much Dr. Carter you are the best!

Friendly staff all around. Great front desk and office staff. The optometric assistants are great here. Very friendly and knowledgeable. They are also on time and efficient. Dr. Eidal is friendly and answers any questions you may have. He is also great at explaining any issues in a non technical way. He is great at solving problems and finding solutions. This office is up to date with new technology as well as practices. I highly recommend going here for all eye health.

The first time I met Dr. Eidel, it was because of an emergency. I had scratched my cornea. My regular doctor refused to see me even though I’d been going there since I was 10 because it’d been 13 months since my last appt. He opened up the office on a holiday, treated me, and took my name and address and said he’d have his office bill me later. The next time, was also due to an emergency. I’d come down with a horrible form of pinkeye, they got me in immediately and treated me. I switched my entire family’s care over, and we have been so pleased ever since.
