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 i could give minus stars I would. If you want to be scammed this is the place to go. They take advantage of elderly. How many times do people have to pay on top of insurance.They dont want to give reciepts. Insurance fraud is a crime! The whole office is a joke. Unprofessional. They all have cocky attitudes. Doctor seen me under 5 mins and wouldnt see me when I came back when they didnt work. She wouldn't of had to come back if they would of done their job like they should of. I am ashamed by how so called "proffesionals" can scam our elderly. This will be handled appropriately.

I was first greeted by a friendly woman in the front office. The wait was not very long and I was seen by the tech and then taken back to Dr. Paquin. He was very nice and professional and informative. Very happy with him and the safety in this office. A friendly woman then picked out a new frame for me which I really liked. Great experience all around!

On my first visit I had a very thorough exam and got new glasses! Some time later I developed a problem, a detached retina. They referred me immediately to a wonderful specialist, Dr Bhullar. I am so grateful they were so astute in recognizing my emergency.

This is the B-E-S-T eye Doctor/eye care place on earth. They are not only extremely friendly but super professional.....and like in days past treat you as family. In past I have been to the ASSEMBLY LINE EYE CARES, and treated as just another source of income, and received mediocre care. Its different at Manatees Family Eyecare, they take time to do a complete exam, and they explain every aspect, even guide you on glasses as to the beast suuted for a particular person and various activities that a patient has in the ways if life.

Fair prices and eye exam however their hours are not correct. Sense the virus I have yet to see them open. There is also nothing posted in the store. I have a small problem with my frames and my wife has issues with the non glare coating on one of her lenses. I dont doubt that these will be corrected but until they open I will leave my review as is. Will update rating once I can get in to speak with them.
