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 Dr. Simonis office for several years now. Her staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Simonis is the best, she is a kind and compassionate doctor and not to mention how professional she is. No need to go anywhere else as this office will meet all of your optical needs.

Really great team and technology. No one is rushed but the process for my annual exam and counseling was super efficient. Dr Gray is very friendly and thorough. We discussed all my options and we chose what was right for me. Thanks so much for your excellence.
Chris Mcaleer | Rating: 5 | Optometrist Dr. So
AMAZING! My husband and I had our first visit in this office last Saturday. Everyone was so friendly and helpful....knowledgeable as well. The Dr. took plenty of time with both of us, as did the optician. Wish I could remember their names! I do remember Phillip's name though....he seemed to be a concierge of sorts. I do love my previous optician and optometrist, but an opportunity to get vision insurance brought about the change. Will let you know how the glasses come out :):):)

Dr. Bui and his team were all professional, kind and very helpful with the exam, insurance and getting new glasses. Each step was explained in detail to both me and my daughter. It was a positive experience all around. Thank you!

Just had an appointment with the OGU yesterday and it was great. Passed by this place 100 times and thought it was such a tiny place but they fill it with great care. The place is set up well: the initial diagnostic room is just inside and they had all the most up-to-day equipment including a few new ones I had never seen before! The exam room is spacious and the doctor was personable, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable. My wife also visited the OGU and felt the same way about the dr. she saw. They even had a room set up with glasses and a fitting room, one-stop-shop! They had a great selection with many name brands (RBs, Oakley, DK, etc). Great selection for kids, women, men and even glasses for patients with giant craniums! In and out of there in under an hour. Safe, clean, and great service. We just found our new optometrist for life!
