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.

I have been going to West Broward Eyecare for a little more than to 2 years now. My daughter use the special eye contacts to slow down the progression of her myopia, it s working :). All the team is amazing, no wait on the appointment. I want to give a special kudos to Robin who did a great diligence and follow up with me to make sure I receive the contact lenses on time before my trip. Thank you!

Dr. Carbone is very professional and effective. Everytime I go, not only does my eye exam go by quick but she is very detailed while she does it. I live very far from her office but I still choose her over local eye doctors. Also, I am always greeted by Edith at the front desk who also does a fantastic job and she is very friendly and nice. Awesome team! Wouldnt change them for anyone else
