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.

Beautiful place, lovely staff and super quick! They got me in the same day and helped me resolve my eye issues I had been procrastinating on for weeks. I will return. Quick and painless. You can’t ask for much more!

I visited this office over 3 months ago and have been meaning to share my wonderful experience. This visit was the absolute best I have EVER experienced for my eyes. I received the clearest prescription contacts AND glasses in one visit. Dr.Tumolo was so very personable, answered all my questions I’d had about the changes in my vision. The equipment used was high tech that before he was even done I knew we got my prescription right. Literally the clearest I’ve had in a long time. I’d had a prior exam at America’s Best off State Route 54East and it was beyond horrible. I canceled my overpriced order for glasses the very next day, not to mention they got my contact prescription totally wrong. I was so disgusted with the whole sales experience that it took me several months later to revisit my eyes again. Had kept seeing this office when I’d drive by and decided to finally call after the Dr. Tumolo was featured in a local news magazine write up. So very thankful I did and now have the clearest contacts ever along with great glasses that also had the clearest prescription. Just extremely pleased, thankful really.

This is a new eye doctor in Odessa although they have 2 other locations in Tampa. The doctor and nurse are very down to earth and friendly. The exam was by far the best and most informative examination I have ever had. They have all the latest technology. The doctor scanned my retina and took a video of my eye then went over every detail. He answered all my questions and explained all the parts of my eye. The glasses they offer are all so nice! Everything is made in Europe and super light weight which is helpful since my prescription is so high. I defiantly recommend them!

Dr. Tumolo is the best eye doctor ever! I’ve seen numerous eye doctors throughout my life, but none of them have ever been as caring, understanding, and thorough as Dr. Tumolo. Not only did he ease my current concerns, but spent his own time finding a solution for an old eye injury by reaching out to other eye specialists to be certain before getting my hopes up about a scleral lens. Destiny, at the front desk, and Dr.Tumolo are top notch! Thank you so much!

I was so excited when this location opened close to me! I know others who have visited Dr. Tumolo at his other locations and they spoke so highly of him. Both me and my 4 year old daughter were examined. He explained all of the tests and technology that was used, including taking pics of the backs of our eyes instead of being dilated, etc. Although my daughter never showed any signs of eye issues, he recognized that there was a big discrepancy in her left eye's sight and took extra steps to fully vet the issue. He also spoke in laymen's terms to help me understand the issue and treatment plan, helping to keep me calm. He also made everything into a game for my daughter and never once let her in on the fact that something was wrong. Our glasses arrived today and the staff (Destiny helped us) took such care in adjusting them for us. They made a big deal out of how cool my daughter looks in her new glasses and now she loves them! We have definitely found our new optometrist!
