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.

This was my first experience using Visionworks. It was an excellent! Dr Moustopoulos provided a very thorough examination and answered all of my questions. Then, Kathy Miller provided expert guidance through the maze of frame and lens choices. Upon my return to pick up my glasses, Kathy made sure everything was perfect and exactly what I wanted (prescription, alignment, fit). WOW! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I am very satisfied!

I had a great experience at Gulfcoast Eye Care. I have seen Dr. Liffland and Dr Manning and they took the ti.e to explain what was happening and what my options were. They are very kind and caring and the office staff is friendly, helpful and nice. They work with you and make your experience pleasant.

The worker Wendy is very affable but the fat man is very unpleasant. I had a problem with my glasses. I asked him to return them to the laboratory because I had paid so that at night I wouldn't see the reflection of the lights, which didn't work, he told me everything is fine and He doesn't understand it because it didn't look good and he said return it and that's what I did. Very bad service. I don't know the name but he was there on Thursday the 8th at 5:00 pm.

A lens fell out of glasses I had purchased there @ 2years ago...went in without appointment to get it fixed, brought a book in case of wait time. No need, Samantha fixed the glasses within three minutes of arrival...Since I was already there and overdue for checkup, Kelly from Dr. Moustopulos office was able to get me in for unscheduled appointment in the next hour...Wendy checked me out, gave me advice on frames, all in all a very pleasant experience as all involved were friendly, eager, and quite helpful!
