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.

Harvey & Lewis was such a breathe of fresh air compared to my last eye doctor. I never leave reviews but I had such a good experience, The staff was so friendly and welcoming! I was running a few minutes late coming from a prior appointment & they were understanding and accommodating, no hesitation! Every time I’ve ever purchased glasses I am rushed and pressured into getting a pair then end up hating them & never wearing them! But at Harvey & Lewis they treated me like I was VIP

Well wouldn’t you know, 2 days before we leave on vacation, I was napping on the couch and sat up and crushed and broke my glasses. Sunday night. Monday I place a call to the Berlin location and they make no promises, as expected. I bring in the glasses and drop them off. At 4:00 they call and say they’re ready for pick up! What a pleasant surprise! Thank you so much! You have to know how much Great service means to me as I own a business myself! Thanks again!

Great customer service. After a power outage during a global pandemic took the Glastonbury (our closest) store offline for a bit (with a cancelled eye appt as no power and trees everywhere), Chelsea helped make sure my daughter could get enough contacts on short notice to last her til she can come back un Nov. Her earnestly taking on the mission to make sure my kid will be able to see in a new state for her freshmen year, immediately helped take away a lot of the stress with getting my daughter ready. She was able to work with staff at our usual location and let us know what was going on at every step. Thanks very much! Also when curb side picking up Steve was able to do an adjustment on my new frames as they had gotten a little loose. Even with a mask on, he could see exactly what needed adjusting and came back out with them fitting great. The staff at all the locations we've used has really been top notch.
