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 recently visited with my 99 year old mother in law. Before we even entered someone was there holding the door for her. She was attended to right away by an optician and Carol the office manager. The first concern was for her safety and comfort as she moved from chair to chair. Dr Umemoto was wonderful also. I can’t thank them all enough for their care and attention from the moment we walked in through picking new glasses. I have been a customer for over 30 years and plan to continue into the future.

Everyone is very professional and pleasant except Carol she is very rude and unpleasant I don't know how can she be a supervisor if she doesn't know how to approach customer and I confronted her ,she told me that is to bad that you don't like me. Instead of apologizing. So I felt like she doesn't care how I feel.

Dr. Umemoto is the only reason I come from Santa Monica to get my eyes taken care of. I have complete trust in her that what she does is in my best interest as a client and as a person. I feel like I am getting intimate care with my entire overall health. The facility is pristine, I always get greeted and taken care of quickly. Charges, procedures, and appointments are always clear and described to me completely. Thank you to everyone at The Vision Center for taking care of me and my family for years!

I like this place. I first went there around 2002 and liked them. Then I moved away for 10 years. When I returned, I went back to them and it was business as usual - quick and friendly service, knowledgeable doctors, and what I really dig is that getting an appointment is always really easy. They have great office hours for my schedule. I'm one of those people that is always looking for something better, even if what I have is really good. After some 12 years of first going there, I'm still going there. I guess that says something!

The only redeeming aspect of my visit to the office was the eye exam itself with Dr. Umemoto, and the pre-screening with Marissa.. This business needs to focus its efforts on firing and rehiring well-adjusted staff who understand what customer service really is, OR put 80% of the staff in intensive customer service training expeditiously. The front desk receptionist Diana is incredibly rude. Upon entering, the first thing she commanded was “go in the room and wash your hands” very rudely (and vaguely at that considering the room had an ongoing meeting). Her attitude was subpar. The greeter, Jonathan, was wearing his mask under his nose, which defeats the purpose of any safety protocol including hand washing. He needs to be corrected ASAP, especially considering that multiple reviews on Yelp have addressed this issue. Carol screamed at a toddler in the store who was running in a circle, and scolded the parent not to let him do that. Sure, it’s not a playground but have some tact. Subpar selection of frames, very overpriced, feels outdated.
