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 customer service! Adair took all the necessary steps to keep me and my family safe. Everything was sanitized and proper precautions were taken. These extra steps in no way took away from the overall experience. Adair guided me through the entire process of finding a new pair of eyeglasses. She even gave recommendations on styles,lenses, frames and fit. Highly recommended.

I had called on a Saturday morning to schedule a colored contact lens appointment for my birthday. The receptionist actually got me an appointment for a half hour from when I called. I was very pleased with the quickness of that. When I came in, I was greeted quickly and I immediately felt very welcome. I think it was Laura who helped me with my paperwork and while she was putting my info in the computer, I was able to go quickly buy a bottle of water before I went back. She did the pre-tests with me and was very nice and clear in her instructions and then I went in to wait for Dr. Luke Randall. He is a very nice Dr and I felt at ease completely, which is rare for me at any eyecare center because my eyes are very sensitive. He completed the contact exam and told me what was wrong with my eyes and he was very clear so I understood what he was talking about. I have never had an eye Dr tell me so clearly what is going on, so I really appreciated that. He then took me to another room and he pulled out 6 different colored contact lenses for me to try so I could decide which color I wanted. Laura came back in to help me and she was very patient since I was very indecisive, lol. Once I picked the turquoise ones, Dr. Randall came back in and checked to make sure that they fit my eyes properly and then, since I had to order my contacts, he gave me a trial pair to wear so i could get used to wearing contacts and show them off to my friends. He also gave me a little kit of Opti-Free Pure Moist multi-purpose lens solution and contact lens case so I would have a head start on storage. Check-out was very quick and easy. I was told to expect my order in seven to ten business days and they actually only took about 5 business days. A lot quicker than I expected. Overall, I was very, very pleased with the service I received and I am definitely making Dr. Randall my new eye care specialist. I highly recommend that anyone who is looking for a convenient location and comparable prices should go see Dr. Randall and his team at Walmart. :) I am very pleased!
