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 sad truth is, if a person has a bad experience they are much more apt to leave a comment than someone who had a good experience....That being said here's my two cents......I had a very plain experience with the people at the reception desk.....Not great but by no means bad. Once I saw the doctor (Dr. James Pasternack) things were great....Not only did we have a great conversation about things out of the realm of eye care, but, we also had a great conversation about the reason for my visit....I left feeling assured about my eyes and the insights he provided. I also got my glasses here the optician was very competent and because of the great eyecare plan at work my total cost was zip, zilch, nada.... :) (A savings of $900+)

Been seeing Dr. Price for over 20 years. He is very informative and always shares the latest vision technology with me. It is a very friendly atmosphere in the office. Dawn the Receptionist, is very friendly and knowledable. I dont know what Sara, the previous commenter was talking about. Every office has times where you will wait for a long period of time depending on the situation. Absolutely Recommended for Eye Care in the Area!

Dr Pastrrnick is a veteran and really knows his stuff…old school type of a doctor…He said “I’m good and don’t need to see him for 2 years…Just one concern…since my Mom suffered from Glycoma & cataracts…I think I should come see him in a year

The wait time was a little long. The front desks had all kinds of discussion while we were waiting and them eating nuts. Not much time with the doctor. I go there cause it is close to my job. I will give it another try.
