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.

This is the worst business place,the doctor is very disrespectful, his staff are liars,and they all seem to be doing a con job. I was told that I needed test glasses,I paid my deposit,and was told that I would receive my glasses in one week. I did not get my glasses,so I call the office and was told they were not there as yet. I waited for three (3) weeks. I still haven't received my glasses after one year,even though they were paid for by my insurance company.

Given im in a wheelchair, this office was very acceptable. They all are so nice, went that extra mile to make my experience grade A. Everything was fast and straight to the point. Great selection in glasses, and Dr. Gerber is great. He gave me a good understanding to what's going on with my eyes. I would recommend Dr. Gerber to anyone in need of glasses.

I am happy to wait for a better visit with the Doctor. I waited about 30 minutes past my appointment time before the exam began. The Tech(whom I do not remember her name), was pleasant and professional. Another 10 minute wait for the Doctor. He took a good deal of time reviewing my file, as the previous Doctor had moved on. Dr. Dinowitz listened to me, questioned me and suggested different eye drops. My analysis is that Dr. Dinowitz will spend whatever time necessary to help the patient. Bravo!

I arrived an hour early due to prior appointments elsewhere that day & was seen earlier than my scheduled appointment. The staff are very professional & they do a great job. Dr. Pasternak is very serious about his profession & is a very knowledgeable doctor.

This is THE best place to buy contemporary frames with lenses in the area. I have 3 frames that I absolutely love that are original and beautiful. I get complemented often. If you want choice and not ordinary ( which I think they have anyway ) this is the place to go. You will not be disappointed with the customer service. I hope you give it a chance.
