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 going to this eye care associate for over 20 years. Made an online appointment for 9:00am, Thursday, January 12. Confirming email says no available appointment at 9:00 but 9:30 is good. I responded that 9:30 is good. When I arrive for my 9:30 appointment they yell at me in front of the other customers that I was late for my appointment. How dare you have someone so insensitive and with no respect. This was very embarrassing to be yelled at for something that was not my fault. AND NO APOLOGY!

My experience was great. I was early for my appt and they were closed for lunch. They let me in anyway to wait inside which was wonderful since it was a very hot day. Office is very nice, staff was wonderful and Dr. Fleming was great and funny. They informed me up front what my insurance did or didn't cover and worked with my budget. I got glasses and contacts which was more than I expected with my budget. I was very impressed overall and will definitely be back. Thank you all.

Updating my review to remind everyone how amazing this office is! Yolanda is sooo sweet and she always goes out of her way to help me! Every time there is an issue with anything she always helps me resolve it. She really goes the extra mile and I truly appreciate it. Every time I call in, and she picks up, she always remembers me and is so professional! Thank you Yolanda! When I went in for a contact exam - Richard assisted me and he was very nice and helpful! He sat down with me and reviewed everything with me. He also helped me pick contact lenses as well. Amazing customer service! Very helpful and nice. I went to the other location in National City and the customer service and experience was no where close to the service I got here at the spring valley location. I had to reschedule my appt. to come back to the spring valley location. The staff and Doctor here are so sweet and nice and they try their best to accommodate me with my scheduling whenever I make an appt. I will def. continue to come here for my eye exam and to get my prescription contacts!

My wife recommended that I go to Dr. Fleming’s office for my eye exam and I will definitely be back. Right when I walked in the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I was there for a specific situation and Dr. Fleming got the answers I needed while being extremely informative. Highly recommend.

A great place to check your eyesight and buy eyewears on the spot with a quick wait for receipt. I had a pleasant impression. The meeting was implemented on September 19, that is, 2 weeks before that day. After arriving at the appointed meeting with the company, I was greeted by friendly, responsive and friendly staff, kindly explaining the details for the vision check. The oculist had a professional consultation and examination of my vision. He studied the vision of each of my eyes in detail and was able to choose the perfect lenses for the future frame. I am very grateful to him! The first eyewear of long-term use cost me free thanks to insurance, but the second pair of glasses I had to pay for $380 dollars, taking into account a 30% discount, which is acceptable to me due to the fact that these glasses are Italian-made from Ray-Ban. The quality of all eyewears is for the highest level. Both are comfortable and pleasant to wear. The speed of creating each eyewear was promised to be done in 2 weeks, but they succeeded in completing the order in 1.5 weeks. I recommend this company for inspection and purchase of new eyewears for you!
