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.

The Deep Creek Eye Care center is the best optometrist in Charlotte County. I always know my experience there will be very informative and pleasurable. Their customer service is top notch. The staff is thorough, professional, and made me feel welcomed every single visit. I went in looking for a pair of prescription Costa sunglasses. If you wear contacts, you know the quality of vision through prescription glasses are much better. I am from Florida and I spend a lot of time outdoors. These glasses are always on my face. I cover them with mud, salt water, sweat etc. The glass lenses don't scratch or discolor. They also help me see further into the waters of the Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande areas. The (580G) green glass lenses are aimed more towards freshwater and inshore fishing environments, whereas the blue lenses are more suitable for offshore conditions. The staff treated me like family. They took their time making sure I picked out the perfect frames for my face. The Deep Creek Eye Care Center also stayed in touch with me throughout the entire shipping process. This is the place to go for your eye health.

I have been going to Deep Creek Eye Care for a couple of years now and I would not going anywhere else! Dr. Raddish is outstanding and most professional and best caring Optometrist I have ever had the pleasure to meet! I have many issues with my eyes and sight that others were not only aware of but could not help me! Dr. Raddish has corrected and fulfilled all my problems with ease and my eyes and sight are the best they have been in decades! As for the staff, you truly could not ask for better support and help! There have been times when I needed adjustments, questions answered, etc... and every time I contact them, or just walk-in, I get immediately friendly and professional help! What more can anyone ask for from anyone... I am so excited that I have found them and grateful for all they do for me!

Dr Radish is the best around. We had an emergency and immediately spoke with us. Most caring and knowledgeable. If only other doctors would be as attentive and caring as he is! I would highly recommend!

Dr. Raddish is clearly knowledgeable and staff, including Pat, pleasant. For the first time in years, I have been fit with a pair of contacts allowing me to see near AND far, and I am thrilled! I went to Deep Creek eye care because of it's proximity to my home, but I recommend it because it is great!
