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.

My first time experience here was absolutely terrible. The ophthalmologist himself was wonderful and did a thorough job during examination. However the front desk staff was having a hard time locating my insurance information and Roxanne was absolutely rude and impatient while I was trying to resolve this issue. She presented no desire in trying to help by rudely denying any type of email or phone call to resolve this dispute. She acted as if her time was being wasted with a disgusted attitude when she should be helping or at least have the decency to be respectful and patient. I will not be returning.

I've been to Dr. Parker for three or four years and am extremely pleased with my experience. Everyone on the office is very nice, and Dr. Parker always takes time to explain the various tests he performs and answers any questions I have thoroughly. Wait time is very minimal.

I had such a great experience at Low Country Eye Care in Richmond Hill. This was my first ever visit here, and I was very pleased. The facility was clean, and the staffs and doctors made it really easy and smooth. The staffs, especially Technician Nicole and Dr. Dang, were very informative and answered all the questions I had. At every stage of the eye exam, they explained the reasons for doing each step. I want to thank Technician Nicole, Dr. Dang, and the office clerks for being so patient and providing such a great customer experience.

They asked me to arrive 15 mins early for paperwork (which took less than 5 mins to complete) and then it was over 30 mins past my appointment before I was actually seen. The exam room was clean and all the equipment was very well kept. The doctor was helpful with my different concerns. Brian in the glasses department was extremely kind and helpful. We had a mix up with the lenses I purchased but they reordered them at no cost.
