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.

The staff at Avon Eye Care is very positive, patient, and caring. They understand and respect my personal circumstances and offer excellent advice along with great vision care. I sincerely appreciate the time that Dr. McDermott took to make sure my eyeglass and contact prescriptions were just right for me. I just loved when I picked up my new glasses in a fun gift bag! It made me feel special ... really appreciated that!

The client service is exceptional. Every one is so nice and professional. I got my first pair of glasses and Sammy took the tie to answer my questions and helped through the process. He didn’t make me feel rush to make a decision. I recommend them to anyone.

My first time here was yesterday and my experience was wonderful. I called about an eye irritation and they took me in that day. When I arrived they got me in right away before my appointment was scheduled. The Dr. looked at my eyes and knew what was wrong right away. She prescribed me with eye drops and within a couple hours my eyes felt so much better! The staff were very knowledgeable, polite and welcoming. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Eye exams are fine. My problem was with buying glasses from them. DO NOT BUY GLASSES from them. When I tried on and ordered glasses from them they were "unable" to provide me a line item bill at that time so I foolishly paid and agreed to a line item bill to be emailed to me at a later time. When I finally received the line item bill via email I realized they charged me for two optional services totaling $189! They made absolutely no mention of these services when I purchased the glasses. I had no knowledge of these services and did not consent to them at time of purchase. When I spoke with the owner, Dr. McDermott, she was very defensive and standoffish. I was shocked by her response considering what happened. I also came to find out that the Hoya Vision Care EX3+/EX3 they charged me for INCLUDES UV coating but they still added an additional line item bill for UV coating. This is considered double billing and quite possibly insurance fraud. I have reported this to my insurance provider. I will leave it up to them to determine. If you need glasses look elsewhere.

This is a great eye care facility. The staff is fantastic from the front desk to Janice to Dr. McDermott to Samuel. All are courteous, professional, customer focused and have your best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Avon Eye Care to anyone looking for the best eye care in the Farmington Valley.
