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.

Excellent optometrist who made some adjustments to my contact lens prescription when no one has made any changes for the past 20 years… Never thought I could see so well! The staff is courteous, friendly, and they don't do a hard sell to make you buy the most expensive frames are lenses I will be going to them from now on for all my eye care needs

I have been a regular customer at Chic Optique for well over a decade. When i moved back to NYC I tried going to other places and i could not find a place that gave me the great service that Karen and Julie give me. I now fly down to get my eye exams and buy frames which they ship up to me. I value their opinion when i make a purchase and Dr. Brian Asalone is thorough in his exams and always takes the time to answer any questions that i have. They have a great selection of frames and they know the styles that will flatter your face. As mentioned in other reviews the price point is moderate to high but you really do get what you paid for. If your looking for cheap (both price and quality) this is not the store for you. I also love that both Julie and Karen give back to their community. It is one of the many reasons that i have been a loyal customer for all these years.

The greatest staff I ever encountered in a eye glass store. The selection is of highest quality and a huge inventory. They are full service. Dr on staff is wonderful and the owner Karen is the backbone that drives a positive relationship with the clients. Chic Optique and the owner Karen simply thank you. Also great little plaza.

They are expensive, Thank God I bought mine online. I've been to a lot of eyeglass place and I've seen designers and non-designers and their prices are way better than these prices. Felt like I was on I was in California on Beverly hills somewhere. Now the optometrist the eye doctor I really respect him and he's very well knowledge great doctor. To each his own it's best that you look at other eye doctors and comparing your own notes but for my experience I was not happy I was really disappointed the only reason why I went to the eye doctor here was because of their reviews some of them were good and a few really spoke the truth they're expensive and it's just unbelievable when you go in and you'll see for yourself

OVERJOYED, with my experience(s) at Chic Optique, from the technician, Marcus, to the Doctor, Brian, the owners, Julie and Karen...all helpful and kind to me and generous of their time spent with me. I knew I loved this store, when I was at an adjoining business buying some cupcakes and Marcus saw me in line and said the glasses looked great on me and had me stop by for an adjustment and cleaning...so sweet and kind and attentive. Being remembered is a GOOD THING. I have bought several pairs of glasses there and am certain I will buy many more.
