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.

They are the very best! Everybody in the office was so nice and friendly! We had fun picking out glasses. It’s my first time wearing glasses, but they helped me feel comfortable and confident about it. I walked out of the office with a big smile because they were all so nice and made my day so much brighter!

I've been putting off my appointment because of schedule conflicts but I'm so glad I FINALLY went in. The staff are genuine, knowledgeable, professional, courteous and friendly. Dr. Porter is excellent and has great rapport. Being that this visit was my first in almost 2 years and my first consultation for contacts the Eyecare Center has really has exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend the healthcare professionals here and will be choosing them for my family.

Great eye doctor! Terrible receptionist. I went a few months ago and they were extremely rude to me. Probably because I just went for an eye tests and could afford a part of glasses at the time. They were really nice to the guy who came in after me who had money to spend. They also misplaced my insurance card, but mailed it to me when it was found at least. No complaints about the doctor though! Really wonderful.

My husband, son, and I all had eye exams today. We were very happy with all the staff and Dr. Mitch Merrill. We were not pressured at all into buying our glasses or contact lenses there. In fact, they didn’t even tell me the cost of the contacts until i asked. (Yes, I felt their price was reasonable I and did order some.) My son is excited for his 1st pair of glasses to arrive in 2 weeks. We recently moved here from Salt Lake City, UT and finding new doctors is always a bit worrisome, but we will definitely be returning.

I have 6 kids all with their own unique vision issues, some way more difficult than others. Dr Porter has spent time and effort to make sure they all have their own individual needs met and has never charged me extra to find what works best for each of them. The office staff has been great to work with my schedule for appointments and dealing with any concerns. I highly recommend!
