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.

Have loved this place for years but recently asked for a prescription to be faxed over. Waited over and hour and had to call them 3 times because it was never sent and got a new person on the phone all 3 times. Thank you jackie for finally getting it right.

If you are in need of new eyeglasses, I recommend Bartow Walmart's Optical Center. I am a repeat customer. Both times that I purchased eyeglasses from there, I was totally satisfied! The Optical Center offer various styles with affordable prices. Also, the employees whom assisted me, were knowledgeable, kind, & patient!

My husband ordered a pair of glasses a month ago they came In wrong so they reordered them again but never notified him they were in. So we called got put on a 10 minute hold hung up and called again only to be told they have a new notification system. Well they're system doesn't work! While standing waiting heard them apologize to 3 customers for bad service! We won't be back ever!! Read these reviews before you waste your time & money!

This place is a scam.. Beware... Bait and Switch! Insurance paid $400 and I was to pay $280 extra for frames, light to dark lenses and lastly NO LINE BIFOCALS. They insisted I pay 50% up front... I did. Waited 2 weeks went in the glasses had clearly lined Granny bifocals. Told me I had to pay more for no line bifocals???? I walked out!
