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.

I just received my second pair of prescription lenses for my ESS Rollbars. I am very happy with the lenses Terry and the Mountain West Optical team make. Their prices are fair and the service quick. I recommend them highly! CJ

Ann's Eyewear is a shining example of customer service. Ann, Jenna, and Mindy really do "serve you like royalty with warm and personalized attention" just like their company motto. I have been a client for 20+ years and can attest to their dedication to providing top-quality lenses and frames, fast repair/replacement of any damage I have subjected my glasses to, and service that makes you feel like family.

Everyone here was awesome. The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. Kent was super friendly and helped with all my needs and spent the time to help me get what I wanted and the prices were reasonable. Greatly appreciated.

I have been using Mountain West Optical for several years for my vision. One thing I know is that they go all outto make sure that everything is to your satisfaction before you leave. If you do ha e trouble with your glasses for instance, just go back and they will adjust what ever is wrong for you. I had my last pair of glasses I kept hitting them with some red hinges at work and they readjusted probably six times, no charge. Love them.
