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.

Nice selection of designer glasses. Sandra went above and beyond and ordered a pair she thought would look great on my face and she did not miss! Will definitely be getting any future glasses here!

There is no customer service skills what so ever in this facility. the doctor is great! but Gracie who wants to be in charge but is not in charge is rude and will not even let you speak before she interrupts you. my last experience with her was great too but i guess it depends on what mood you catch her in. i have seen her have these altercations with other clients while in waiting room to be seen before as well. there is no privacy to discuss insurance coverages so everyone in the waiting room hears your business and can see the altercations which is so embarrassing. not to mention, they were talking about my plan so loud in the lobby that i could hear them from the exam room which i believe is a HIPPA violation? seems to me that is would be! I also asked to be called prior to my appointment to discuss any coverage issues and that never happened. this would have been my favorite eye doctor because the doctor himself is very knowledgeable and extremely well rounded and experienced. super sweet guy! but Gracie has given me a very unforgettable experience and i have witnessed that i'm not the only one who has felt that way about her. she give off bad energy. you can feel it when you enter the room! if you want an eye doctors office that at least “pretends” that they care about you, this is not the one! i feel bad leaving this review because like i said, the doctor himself is a great man, but GRACIE gives that whole office a bad rap! 1/10 - do not recommend!

I can’t give enough thanks to Optical Factory and Showroom. I am in from out of town and forgot my contacts (didn’t bring my glasses either). After calling many other places for help, optical was the only place that immediately answered and quickly replied to me. Not only did they have the exact brand of contacts (acuvue) that I needed AND prescription strength (all other stores didn’t), they told me I could come immediately and they would be waiting. As soon as I arrived they had everything ready and went above and beyond to ensure they fit. If it wasn’t for their exceptional service, high inventory and professionalism, I would have been facing 2 days without vision. Thank you much Optical! I won’t forget your kindness and exceptional service.
