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.

Superior Doctor with Superior knowledge in Superior. My former doctor retired and I have been on a multi-year search for excellence. I found it again in Dr. Robinson. She schedules longer appointments in order to really listen to her patients. I left with a complete exam, better contacts, I can ditch my readers, have better distance AND reading vision, and the new contacts are half the price of what I've been wearing for years. A delightful experience from the first scheduling contact with Dawn through the exam with Julia. Superior. Truly.

My third visit to Dr. Robinson...as usual, had excellent experience all the way around. I was in and out in 30 minutes, came needing reading glasses and left with new set of contacts and reading glasses no longer needed. She explained everything and was extremely pleasant and helpful. Would not hesitate recommending her. My wife sees her as well.

Very frustrating experience with this outfit! I made an appointment for a simple eye exam with their optometrist weeks in advance given how busy they were. On the day of my appointment (a beautiful day weather wise), it turns out the optometrist comes up with food poisoning (felt very dubious to me at the time). This place has two optometrists on staff and could not get the other one to cover for the one that had food poisoning that day. I was left a VM in the morning with the optometrist's food poisoning news urging me to reschedule. I called back to reschedule a few times over the next day or two before finally getting to talk to a live person, the office scheduler that day (Sat), who proceeds to put me on hold. After holding, I tell her I need to reschedule due to their optometrist getting food poisoning and she laughs at me and proceeds to put me on hold again. I hung up after that and decided to cut my losses with this place. I'm only going to these people for convenience because Costco has nice frames. But, believe me, it's not worth the effort to deal with these people. I truly got the feeling that they don't care one bit about their clients.

Julia Robinson is so fantastic. We drive a couple hours to come to this Costco to see her. Her assistant is also super helpful and nice. We have received excellent eye care here. When there was a question about something she saw on my retina, she immediately referred me to a specialist and then followed up personally with me. Want outstanding eye care, look no further!

Excellent service and knowledge. I managed to get jalapeño in my eye after eating some yummy phō for lunch. I called and Dr Robinson’s office got me in immediately She has a great chair side manner and professionalism. Thank you for being there while I burned!
