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.

Terrible experience and their same day ad is a LIE! Came in for 2 pairs of glasses...drive an hour to get same day glasses. Neither pair could be done same day.. Next day, i was.told lense cracked during manufacturing and they would be ready by 5PM. They were not. Drove an hour again today (one way) because I was told they would be ready...they are not. I saw the tech go back and start working on my lense...now waiting another hour...and they acted like its no big deal DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!

We have been using Shadowridge Family Vision Center for over 25 years. The staff - Cirus, Monica, Mary and of course Dr. D are EXTREMELY knowledgeable, professional and above all caring and friendly EACH and EVERY time we have either called with a question or came in for an appointment. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone needing glasses or any type of vision services. It’s nice to go to an office where you are always treated like family and cared for the same way. Knowledgeable, caring, professional and kind - it is a pleasant experience every visit.

Dr. Demlinger and his staff are amazing -- I have been using their services for eye care for over 10 years, and every experience has been very positive. The doctor is thorough, patient, articulate, and has equipment that makes the whole testing experience as comfortable as possible. The frame selection is excellent, the staff welcoming and attentive -- even remembering little details about prior frames and personal preferences of the patients. I've been willing to drive 55 miles each way to use their services!

My niece and I passed by Stanton Optical in Vista today after seeing a promotion sign in the window. We were greeted by a gentleman named Nathan who assisted us right away. He was extremely friendly, and helpful and the rest of the staff was very professional. Not only were we able to get exactly what we were looking for, but they were able to deliver the glasses upon purchase with extra added perks. Thank you Nathan for making it such a pleasant experience! We will most definitely be coming back! We highly recommend!

I called to make an appointment, time is limited with a high-schooler, elementary kid and two full time working parents. "Receptionist" said they took our insurance, made the appointment and when we showed up..... the lady up front took FOREVER. I can't even make this up, she was saying the computer wasn't responding and after a few minutes looked behind and the monitor of the desktop was unplugged. She said it was the assistant manager that made the appointment, not sure why she would say our insurance was covered, then wanted my out of pocket cash for this appointment I took my daughter out of school early for. After a few quick bits or research it looks like this office often lures in people, only to have them pay out of pocket since they are already there. My advice, STAY AWAY!
