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 only thing you’ll get here is attitude from the guy everyone else is talking about in these reviews. Places like this are the reason why objectively superior companies like Zenni & 1-800 Contacts have sprouted up. Save yourself time and frustration by getting your prescription literally anywhere else, and then order your contacts and glasses online where you don’t have to worry about antiquated, kickback-driven business models.

New patient experience was top notch. I've been looking for a solid practice and have found it with Briggs Vision Group. Extremely happy with the entire team here. Everyone was extremely professional, courteous and friendly. I will be encouraging my family and parents to come here for their eye exams and eyewear needs.

Don't get me wrong, the optometrist is a lovely, kind, pleasant, and very thorough lady/doctor. I would never return because of the guy she has on staff. He was rude and dismissive, when I made my appointment...telling me that they were too busy to even take down the number of the Walmart vision center that did my last examination. Then I observed his behavior, when I was waiting to have my exam. He was quick to dump everything on the other girls. Sat in the back to play on the computer, although he was supposed to be doing work on it, he seemed to take his sweet time about it...while one girl took phone calls and helped walk-ins. Then, when I returned to order my contacts, I got stuck with him again. He was slow, asked me if I had insurance...even tho it was in the system from my exam, he couldn't be bothered to check...seemed pissed that I did have it, because he would have to be bothered to apply it toward my purchase. When I ask how long it would be, he said 5 to 7 business days, but "we'll call you when it comes in". Two weeks later, I called them. My order was in...I asked "why didn't I get a call telling me they were in, like I was told I would." The girl...who didn't originally answer the telephone said, "well, he just found the box he was looking for." ?!?!?!?!?!? That doesn't remotely answer my question. When I arrived later that day (after telling them I would be in to get them), I walked up to the counter. Same guy asks me what I need, I said "I'm, Kim Smith, I am here to get my contacts." "Ok, have a seat"...although he was helping a customer, my contacts should have been bagged and ready to go. I had already paid for them. But NO! I had a seat and waited, while he SLOWLY helped the woman sitting there. Finally he go my stuff and put it in a bag in front of me. Didn't bother to offer to ask me to check if it was right. Then apologizes for the MISUNDERSTANDING. I said, "What misunderstanding? I understood YOU perfectly, when YOU said someone would call me when my order came in." He replied, "Well, that's what I meant, I am sorry I don't know what happened." I know exactly what happened. My order came in days earlier, and he tossed it aside, because he is a person, who can't be bothered to do his job. While he works there, I will never go there again...and I will tell anyone needing an eye exam to go elsewhere.

I don't think I could ever hope to fit all of the positive things I want to say about Briggs Vision Group into a single review. I've been a patient here for about seven years now, and I wish that every provider was as professional, caring, helpful, flexible, and skilled as Briggs. From front desk staff to insurance staff to the doctors themselves, everyone at Briggs has always been phenomenally helpful. If you've been looking for an optometrist that knows what they're doing and will consistently go above and beyond to provide to the absolute best care possible without sacrificing even the slightest hint of convenience, Briggs is where you want to go.

My husband and I had a fantastic experience at Briggs Vision Group. Both Kerry, our nurse, and Dr. Gadani were friendly, patient, and explained everything in a way that was very easy to understand. Thanks for making our first visit to your office such a great one!
