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.

Wow, where do I start? First, the ENTIRE staff far exceeded customer service expectations. Their disposition was genuine, not forced. I felt cared for. Second, they have a large selection of glasses - actually too many styles to choose from! Finally, Yami worked with me and my mom to ensure we were satisfied with our choices. She was very personable, warm, and friendly. She is truly an asset to Belvedere Eye Center! Can't believe they made this experience so pleasant. A friend of mine referred me to this establishment and I intend to refer others.

I was very happy with my experience at Druid Hills Eye Care a few months ago. The staff was uniformly helpful, and I appreciated Dr. Ortiz's patience as took I some time to ensure that my prescription was as accurate as possible. They had a good selection of glasses in stock, and although they did not pressure me to purchase the glasses there, I was happy with the selection they had in stock and found a pair that I like. As a result, I have a new pair of progressive lenses that work really well for me, and I've gotten compliments on the new frames. I'm definitely going back!

It was a line of people waiting outside the office so I was skeptical of getting my daughter seen in a timely manner despite having an appointment. I was pleasantly surprised when we were seen after only a short wait (about 15 minutes). The assistants were efficient at getting our paperwork and insurance information processed. The tech who performed the initial tests on my daughter was patient with her as it was her first time going to an eye doctor (she's 6). Dr. Ginsburg who saw my daughter had a great bedside manner and explained everything to my daughter so she would feel comfortable. She explained everything to me in a simple manner as well providing me with my daughter's prescription on a business card. We checked out quickly and paid the copay with a touchless system and my daughter was fitted for her glasses by another nice tech. It was a smooth appointment from beginning to end. I was pleased and will gladly return for my daughter's annual exam next year.

This place have terrible service! I been calling for the last two weeks straight to see if my son glasses had came in yet. On May 31 I called again for a rude employee to tell me the glasses been in since April. I don’t know who number they called. They call me in 3 week with the right number how did you all get a totally different area code and number.
