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 had an amazing experience at Optica Arias. I was treated very well while measuring my vision and Jessica helped me find the perfect pair of glasses and made the checkout process very smooth.

El señor que atiende al público tiene una pesima aptitud es agresivo ,déspota,me sentí como si estuviera en una óptica por moneda nacional en Cuba,me dijo que era un favor lo que me hacía como si no me hubiera cobrado antes de tener mis gafas en la mano!,y haberme dado la opcion de hacer otras sin costo si esas no me funsionaban(oferta que tienen casi todas las opticas y con precios mas bajos),al decirle que no pensaba estuvieran bien hechos los cristales ,las miro a tras luz y dijo "estan perfectas"¿sera así como verifican que las graduaciones estén correctas?

I had a horrible experience there. My mom, sister and I have been patients there since before 2015 and my recent visit was unpleasant. My mom ask for the manager and the front desk said it was her when it wasn’t her. When I called she said the name of the manager is barbara that she wasn’t there. My sister had the appoint since December and now is when my mom could pick up her things because they keep closing at 5 when they say they close at 6. Today when I went to pick up the contacts, I ask again for the manager and both front desk said she wasn’t there. I ask for the prescription and they took 10 minutes to give it to me. They are two front desk one with black hair and the other one with reddish hair, they wouldn’t even give me there names. The one with black hair told my mom she was the manager when she is not the manager and the other girl in the front says the manager is never there and that they close at 5 when ever they want. That the closing at 6 is just if the doctor goes.

I want to highlight the outstanding customer service experience I had with the representative named Daliani! She went above and beyond helping pick the right glasses. I totally recommend this place and always ask for her!
