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 office staff are warm and professional, the person who conducts the initial assessment and screens vision is helpful and efficient and Dr. DeLisle works with you to meet your personal goals for glasses/contacts. I have purchased glasses/frames here before and have been pleased with the quality and the fitting, but the costing out process is mysterious and expensive so I may try other sources for actually purchasing the eyeglasses.

Thank you Eve and Associates for helping my daughter get her glasses repaired quickly. As a ICU nurse she wasn't able to come in and I was able to get them for her.. You made a bad situation into a good one. Kudos to great customer service..

I wish I could give 0 stars. Customer service is the worst here. It took this lady almost 10 minutes to even recognize that I was standing at the register waiting to be helped. On top of that she was completely rude when I asked if they took walk-in patients for vision exam as per the sign which clearly wrote “walk-ins welcome”. She said “We do take walk-ins but not today! “ she just handed be a card to call back later to schedule an appointment. This was 2 hours prior to closing time. Staff here is lazy and couldn’t care any less about customers .

One of the worst visits this far. Not only they lost my file. How do you lose one of your patients file. The female doctor gave me a random prescription not taking into account my astigmatism when they couldn't find my prescription. Then she gave me some random contacts that were bothering me, i call and they tell me to return that they found my file with the right prescription! So i go in the next day wait for about a hour and they once again tell me they couldn't find my file. -_- finally the male doctor comes out and remembers me and at some miracle finds my correct prescription and sends me my way. Very disappointed.

Everyone that works there does an excellent job! The Asian lady that does the eye exam is very though. She wants to give people the best prescription possible. Staff for selecting frames are very helpful and professional and kind. Especially eve. :-) also your new glasses will come in pretty quick mine always come in.. in 5 days. Reading through all the reviews again notice that all the bad reviews are from people who are not originally American?
