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.

Can't say enough about my new glasses. First, they are beautiful, (which really does matter,) and second, they solve a problem I've always had - I can see fine at a distance, but need help at the computer and when reading. So, these attentive craftsmen, created new to me bifocals that split the viewing area between my favorite book and the computer. The distance view, which was never a problem, they leave up to me. Excellent, creative solution.

Amazing service that went above and beyond. My daughter was very sad when the arm of her glasses was broken, because the manufacturer no longer makes that model, and she did not want a different style. At Harvey & Lewis, they took the time to go through every single pair of glasses from the same manufacturer to find the one (and only one) that had a compatible arm, and then used the arm from that pair to repair my daughter's glasses, resulting in a very happy child. Thank you so much!

A specially I like to say thank you to Jonasen S, the employee that works there. The company should keep him forever. I had the best experience. He is polite, helpful and knows his trade. I tell my husband to come and see him. Jonasen did magic on my glasses. I thank you Jonasen S again

From the first call to the last visit to pick up my new goggles, I was pleasantly surprised by the very personable, very helpful service. They were also careful about masking, and check temp at door. The product is excellent, no return visits for adjustments, they got it right the first time! I look forward to working with them next time!

Helpful staff that knows a lot about eye health, recent trends in frames and more. Sometimes prices are a bit high when comparing to other companies, but the service is unbeatable and they will always adjust or clean your glasses for no additional charge.
