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.

Dr Witherington has been my eye doctor for over 20 years now. His eye exam is the most thorough you will find in this area. I trust him. The results of his exam is always very complete. He is also very pleasant and I recommend him for your eye care needs.

Dr Witherington and his staff are and always have been amazing. Just counted back and he has been my eye doctor since 1999. He is very knowledgeable and very kind. He wants what's best for his patients. Lynn knows her stuff and you're very lucky if she is fitting you with glasses.

How do you read a place any better for taking care of an emergency. I was on vacation and lost my glasses in the Gulf of Mexico 12 hours before I was getting on a plane to fly across the country and drive at night to go home. The Fantastic people at Opti Express took care of me. They got me in right away and provided an exam. The optometrist was so incredible I wish I could go to see him every time I need something adjusted or an eye exam. The staff went out of their way to make sure that I am not only felt like I was important but that I felt like I was their main concern. 6 hours later I had not one but two pairs of eyeglasses ready to go. The eyeglass technician that makes everything fit together stayed late just to make sure that I had everything I needed before I got on my plane. The service was second to none. I can never think these folks enough nor praise them enough for what they did to help me in the situation. My hats are off to these folks and I hope nothing but the best for them in their Endeavors and their business.

My daughter was vacationing in Fort Myers Beach when she lost a contact. With 6 days of vacation left I was in the search of getting it replaced. I found OptiExpress in Ft Myers Beach and spoke with the most helpful lady I think her name was Lynn. Our local vision center faxed an order with my daughter's prescription to OptiExpress and they were able to give my daughter a trial contact for no charge. I feel she went out of her way to help us. Customer service is clearly important to them.
