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.

If I can give 0 starts I definitely give it -1 … been waiting on glasses for well over a month just for them to tell me that I’m not in their system and I need proof. Idk why proof they need but the paperwork they asked of me isn’t even mine! So I completely wasted my time with them and will NEVER go to a place that’s so unorganized. How can you give someone the wrong paperwork then tell Me that they have NO record of me even being there. It’s been about almost 2 months now and I’m just annoyed and confused! Then no one is answering their phones! Just horrible, unprofessional and unorganized!

I've never had anything but positive experience here. My first visit was in 2015. There was a bit of a wait, but nothing unusual. The 2nd time was just recently November 2020. There no wait time, I was seen by the Dr.Ta. Who I adore, and had no issues! My temperature was taken before I could come behind into the eye center. Everythi itng was clean the eye doctor and the receptionist had their masks on and PPE. I recommend this location.

If I could give a huge zero to this practice, I would! Do not come to this practice. Save yourself time and sanity. That practice is ran very unprofessionally, doctor is careless, she enters information into the system incorrectly. Front office is rude. Scheduling is terrible. I’m still inside the store at 5 pm for my 3:30 pm appointment. I’m beyond frustrated.

Atrocious. Got there at 9:10 second person on the list. Was told about 40 minutes to an hour. After seeing numerous people go ahead of me I was told I was next on the list. Asked again was told 15 minutes. Finally asked the doctor and he said I wasn’t on the list. 3 hours after I had started waiting. I was shown zero sympathy or customer service for wasting my entire day at this dump. In fact the doctor told me he could just leave but he was doing me a favor by seeing me. Never again.

This optometrist is engaging in illegal practices. He is charging you for your eye exam despite the insurance saying that he shouldn't and then he is giving you an abridged version of your prescription, which prevents you from purchasing eyeglasses or contacts from anywhere but his office. When you call and ask for your PD measurement, which is needed for eyeglasses but is missing, the rude receptionist says that he doesn't provide that information... it's withheld for his use only. He does the same for your contact lens prescription. He doesn't provide your diameter measurement. This renders the illegally written prescriptions useless. Without these two measurements you cannot purchase eyeglasses nor contacts. This is a violation of FTC regulations. Please report this unscrupulous "doctor" to the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC's Eyeglass Rule and Contact Lens Rule require optometrists to provide patients with their glasses prescription at the end of their eye exam. A contact lens prescription must be provided after the contact fitting is complete. The doctor cannot make you pay an extra fee, buy eyeglasses or contact lenses, or sign a waiver or form. To report an eye doctor you suspect of violating the Eyeglass Rule or the Contact Lens Rule, contact the FTC at
