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.

First time in the practice as my other doctor buggered off with no notice. I was promptly greeted by the staff at the desk and brought in right away. Very friendly. There was a trainee working with me and it took a bit longer though she was eager to learn. Dr. Green was nice. He gave me some great information. Previous providers were very judgemental about getting glasses online, however he and the staff were understanding. Overall very professional, kind and caring. Highly recommended.

I normally wont do reviews for anyone but i am tired of this unprofessional group eveytime i go see the Doctor they all give me some kind of attitude and never friendly with me. For that reason i left them. I had an appointment and when i called the day before to ask what time it was they had taken me out of their book and put someone else. The older lady with short hair it was telling things like i did it. When i got there they were all laoughing includding the Doctor none of them even say hi i sit for like 5 mins untill i said ecused me i have appointment she goes what time i really wanted to lrun away but i need it my annual check out. Never apoligize for what they did. Anyway thats the story.

I have had nothing but great experiences over the 4 years I have been going here until recently. I brought my glasses in to be adjusted, which I have always done in the past without issue. When I got them adjusted this last time, I placed them in the case and did not wear them until the next day. I noticed that there was some blurring when I wore them the next day, and there appeared to be a "spot" on the right lens. The also appeared to be a long scratch running down the left lens and the left lens now sticks out past the frame. I brought them back, and basically was told that what I am seeing is scratches and "maybe in time my eyes will adjust and get used to the scratches", scratches that were not there until I got them adjusted, scratches I did not cause as this was not an issue prior to me going in. I inquired about getting new glasses since there is no way I can adjust to the way these issues are impacting my vision (causing daily migraines if I wear them) and the lens alone will cost close to $400 and the insurance I have gives me nothing towards them. I wish I had never gone in now to get them adjusted.

Both of my children have visited the Cromwell site for their glasses in the past several months. I can not say enough about the staff here. We had the pleasure of working with both Heather and Carrianne. They were so patient and helpful! I highly recommend them!

Great staff yet they’ve been bought out recently. I have great insurance yet now all of a sudden after 5 years going here I’m out of network and they only honor a portion of my benefits. To put it in perspective, bottom of the line glasses (to use as a backup) and a years supply of contacts for 500$, including my UHC and VSP benefits- time to start looking elsewhere
