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.

Dr. Amatuzzi is top notch. He and his staff are very welcoming, friendly and experienced. He truly cares about the well being of his patients. I've been visiting Dr. Amatuzzi for a few years due to a condition called central serous retinopathy, which he has called "the largest case he's ever seen." He takes great care each and every visit to ensure the condition wasn't becoming detrimental to my vision. I would highly recommend Dr. Amatuzzi.

It was my first time going to an eye doctor and I was pretty nervous. Dr Amatuzzi was amazing. He made me feel comfortable, was super knowledgeable, and explained every little detail on what was going on with my eyes in a way that I could actually understand. His staff was just as wonderful. When it was time to pick a pair of glasses out I’m sure I wasn’t the easiest to deal with because I tend to be pretty picky but the woman helping me went above and beyond. I can’t tell you how many pairs she brought over for me to try on and listened to every little detail on what I liked and didn’t like. I left there with the PERFECT pair. I wish I knew her name to give her some credit because she sure deserves it. The whole process from when I walked in to when I walked out was 10/10.

I would highly recommend Ridgefield Family Eye Care. I bring my daughter to see Dr. Bran and he is very thorough and very clear in his explanation. It is easy to make an appointment and the hours are excellent, even for the busiest patient. We have been going for three years and will continue to do so.

Laughable quality & customer service with high-end price tag My wife and daughter went to this place to buy a high end glass frame, Lindberg. No wonder it has a high end price tag, $700 each. We were very disappointed with everything else, wrong glasses, poor customer services, etc. Let me start with glasses. My daughter felt discomfort with a new eyeglasses and kept adjusting it. We didn’t think something was wrong and asked her to stop toching it. Finally, my wife happened to visit other eyeglasses shop for something else and found the glasses not properly shaped to fit into a frame! It was such a rudimentary mistake we never expected to happen in such an high end eyeglasses shop. My wife found some scratches on her glasses and called this shop for repair under warranty. They pointblank declined it without reasoning! It is flabbergasting. It is 700 bucks eyeglasses that deserve better customer service. I am not sure what they are thinkg of customer expectations on themselves. High price tag comes with high expectation. Simply they have no idea.
