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.

Very offhand approach. Didn’t even introduce herself when I arrived. I thought she was the assistant. She didn’t explain the procedure so I was tense and caught off guard when the probes of the lipiflow went inside my eyes! She left me in the room alone which added to my anxiety. Then I was sold glasses that block out the air, saying that most if her clients buy them. I never wear them. I was supposed to get a follow up appointment. I emailed requesting the follow up for the beginning of November. I never received a response. I did not feel cared for around her so I left it although I have paid for a follow up so I will demand that appointment.

The doctor has a very condescending attitude and makes assumptions. Never go there. If you have a new patient, get to know them and don't assume. I went in as a medi-cal patient and was treated as such.If I was treated like a human being then I would have paid cash for a full exam of contacts lenses and glasses. No problem but I like to test if you still have any humanity left first. Test failed.

Do not come here. The optometrist is probably the rudest person I've ever met. Someone who treats her patients this way does not deserve any business. She was so mean to my mother she made her cry. The optometrist treats her patients as an inconvenience and the rest of the staff are just as bad. I wish I read the reviews before coming because clearly, the majority agrees. Please go somewhere else, this place does not deserve your time or money.

My dry eye was horrible, it effected my life, my work, I was going to quit my job even However, I found Dr. Sirounian and she literally changed my life. She was so helpful and patient with me. Explained the procedure thoroughly even though I had tons of questions. The staff was very sweet and welcoming, it was such a great experience!Finding the right doctor who cares is so rare, but I was lucky enough to find mine. Thank you Dr. Sirounian, see you at the next appointment)

I don’t know about another people experiences in this place, but in my case they were very professional, very attentive and answered all my question. The lady that helped me to choose the frame was so patient and gave me all the examples I asked her, the glasses was very quick to receive in 2 weeks, so I recommend this place to all person who are finding warm person to traer with. God bless you all.
