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.

If you enjoy really unprofessional and rude staff then go here. My daughter who is away at college broke an ortho k lens and can't come back to melbourne beach to see Dr reynolds to get it replaced so we found an ortho k optometrist in gainesville, florida. Dr. Reynold's office is totally uncooperative and is trying to do everything they can to make it impossible for us to go somewhere else. They are refusing to coordinate with the optometrist in gainesville and are telling me that she will have to be fitted for ortho-k lenses as if she has never worn them because that is what they would do. If this is true, why did they quote me a price for an eye exam and a price to replace the contact lens (approximately $500)? If she has to be fitted all over again the cost is around $3000! So they are basically telling me pay $500 and come here and get your lens replaced or pay $3000 if you go somewhere else. She has been wearing the lenses since 2013 and was last seen in 2016.

Noticed all of the negative reviews which I am not comprehending. Have been with Dr. Reynolds for 2 years; he is super professional, kind, understanding and gave me a fantastic referral to the best corrective eye surgeon in Florida. I do agree that his staff can be a bit rough on the edges, however that does not take away from Dr. Reynolds himself; as a very knowledgeable professional. One should tell him about your experience, otherwise how will he know?

Staff was nice enough. I was the only patient in office but still had to wait (???). Office is dusty and floor and walls are filthy. In desperate need of some updates/spring cleaning. Times of COVID you would think they would be on this already.
