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.

The staff really stepped up and tried to feather the situation as much as possible. The staff is very nice and the atmosphere is very clean and friendly. Unfortunately, after two months of back-and-forth, problem seems to be bigger than an exam and I’m having to go elsewhere to get further testing done on my eyes. That said, they bent over backwards to make sure that I was happy and they succeeded.

I highly recommend this practice! We went for a kindergarten eye exam and it was very thorough. Everyone in the office was very friendly. The doctor and her assistant were extremely patient with my daughter!

Dr. Brand and his staff couldn't have been nicer - they fit me in around my schedule and took their time with both the exam and helping me pick out glasses in the front. Both offices provide an exceptional patient experience.
