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 staff was very helpful! He found the design for my 10 year old that she was happy with (after searching at a few stores) and was professional but also entertaining while we went through the process of purchasing her glasses. I would highly recommend! Thank you Ronald from Vernon Lens Crafters.

I walked into your store in Vernon and was met by Carla with a smile and a good morning. She took care of me from start to finish with no problems was very pleasant to deal with. She gave me the best deal possible with all the discounts that were available to me. My experience with LensCrafters and Carla was excellent. I would recommend looking for Carla if you ever need glasses it LensCrafters in Vernon.

Renee was great! She allowed me to shop around on my own but when I was ready make my final decisions she was a big help. She made recommendations on lenses that would be best for my everyday glasses and saved me money on my sunglasses for the beach by not adding features that I didn't need. Thank you Renee

I had an eye exam and ordered two pairs of glasses that were to be ordered on June 20th. On July 2nd I received a call from them that they forgot to order the glasses. On July 9th the frame broke on my glasses and I was forced to use an old prescription because my glasses were not ordered until 2 weeks after they were supposed to be. On July 13th I was wondering why they had not come in yet and called to find out that they had come in and they had not called me. Being a Friday, I wanted to get my new glasses before I went away for the weekend and I told them that I would not be able to get there from work until 6:05 p.m., which is 5 minutes after they're closed time. I asked them if they could wait 5 minutes for me considering it was their mistake, but I was told that the owner says that they will not wait for anyone after their close time. This is one of the most unprofessional businesses I have ever experienced and I would not recommend them to anyone.
