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.

My experience at Eye Care Group was excellent. The office staff is efficient and and cordial. The technicians are knowledgeable and have a way of making you feel comfortable. I have been a patient of Dr. Branden for 21 years. I would highly recommend him for his expertise and knowledge in the eye care field. He is pleasant and reassuring.

Had an appointment for myself and my 4 year old son. Everyone was extremely sweet to my son and made his experience effortless. Dr. Filchak was great with him and incredibly patient with a 4 year who doesn’t like to sit still. We will be customers for life.

Fabulous! Dr. Filchak was wonderful! He listened to my issues, & asked lot of great questions. He was very thorough. And Nancy....WOW! I have been wearing glasses for many years & never have I had someone spend so much time helping me to pick the best frames for my face. Nancy is awesome, and I can't wait to get my new glasses!

Progressive Eye Care is simply the best. Everyone in their office is professional, courteous, and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Dr Kimball is as kind and patient as he is thorough. Guy fits you for your new glasses and doesn’t let you leave until you have the just the right pair with the perfect fit. My husband and I have been going to Progressive for many years and although we have moved quite a distance away, we would never go anywhere else.
