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.

I have never had a bad experience with the doctors. But the office staff at the Sunset location are horrendous. They never answer the phone. This is the third time in the span of five years that I call to ask what they're hours of operation are for the day and they tell you one thing and when you go in person they are not physically open when they say they'll be open. And they only want to speak to you if you speak in Spanish. I really don't understand how this business stays afloat. My husband and I have been with Vision unlimited since your Coconut Grove days. We have had enough. We will be taking our business elsewhere.Consumers be warned.

DON'T GO HERE! These people are NEVER at the store when they are supposed to. You can see the employee walking in thirty mins late not caring about a thing in the world... They forget to place orders for prescription or to do follow ups. Not sure how they stay in business treating customers like that. I'm taking my prescription and money somewhere else.

Highly recommend. She is extremely knowledgeable. She diagnosed both my father with an eye disease that needed treatment at Bascom Palmer and also my husband with optical migraines. Woud continue to see her except we are living in Georgia.

Professional Optical Care at its finest! I have been a patient of Dr. Obregon's for over 25 years. He and his staff have always provided top quality optometric care, and continue to set the bar high for customer service and patient care. Jim T

Hands down the best experience at a medical practice I've ever had. Dr. Obregon took the time (even with my appointment being late in the day) to explain every step of the way what he was doing/testing. He listened to me very intently when I explained what I was experiencing, and calmly explained what he found/saw with my eyes. The front-desk attendants also were very friendly and personable and explained everything along the way. I already have recommended Envision Optique and Dr Obregon to my family members and they are looking forward to scheduling an appointment with him.
