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 been having issues with my glasses and contacts for 2 years. I finally stopped being lazy and looked for a new eye doctor. I am so glad I did. Dr. C and his team are amazing. Dr. C spent time answering my questions and easing my concerns. I have had a few questions while I am in trail lenses. Danette and Sam have been so helpful. They are happy to assist to make sure I find my comfort with my glasses and contacts. If you are looking for a quality eye doctor I HIGHLY recommend Artisan.

Excellent. Dr Collier was very detail oriented, reviewed my medical history and explained her findings after a detailed exam. Her assistant was also very knowledgeable and new from the time she saw my old eye glasses why I had trouble with it. Excellent from the start to the end of the visit. Highly recommend them.

Dr. Cory Collier is an exceptional Dr.! I needed to get new contacts within a short time-frame and he was so thorough and accommodating. He made sure my contacts were perfect and came in on time, and very patiently answered all my questions. You can tell he really cares about his patients. Thank you Dr. C. for giving me back my vision!

This was my first visit to Artisan Eye and I was extremely pleased with everything. Dr. Collier is amazing...he made me feel so at ease, he explained everything completely, and he was so positive about what my results should be with my new contact lens. He explained all the testing ahead of time so I wasn't nervous at all. The rest of the staff were professional and friendly as well. I'm actually looking forward to my next visit!
