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 received the most thorough eye exam of my life, Dr. Kopke listened to my concerns and complaints about my vision and I never before felt a doctor listened so well and addressed my concerns. She was caring and compassionate and gave me the best prescription of my life. The staff was extremely nice and friendly answering all my questions with patience and a great explanation, I never felt like they were selling me anything, but more helping me make the best choice for my needs and wants. When I picked up my glasses and put them on I was able to see in a way I never had before, I felt like a little kid putting on glasses for the first time. I had goosebumps when I put them on and I actually cried in the car, this was a life changing experience.

No one wants to listen to an automated listing of hours, then have to leave a message on voicemail that will be returned within 24 to 48 hours just to set up an appointment. I'll stick with a dedicate optometrist office even if it costs a little more, I'll get prompt service.

Horrible. Ordered glasses three weeks ago and had them rush ordered and still not in. I went in 3 weeks ago for an eye exam and was told that I have 2 astigmatisms and the beginning of glaucoma and I have to keep waiting for my glasses. Not only that I had another eye appointment today for the glaucoma and they called me and canceled my appointment and switched it to another day that suits them better. Horrible service.

Rude doesn’t begin to cover it. I called today asking if there was a possibility of appointment that day as I work long hours….however, understanding if the answer was “no” that was no big deal. A man told me that their was a 5:15 appointment and please stay on hold. TWENTY MINS LATER, their appt calendar doesn’t show appts that day and I decide to drive there as it’s super close. I call again to help me locate the store when arrive. The same man answers and says “please hold” and then proceeds to HANG UP. I finally locate the store and say I just wanted to check on the appointment at 5:15 to which he says “I have no information for you” and then ASKS me to wait. At this point, just TELL me there is no appointment! If not, I want to go home, sir. Instead he proceeds to loudly tell the lady he starts helping to IGNORE ME because he had to give people who scheduled a priority. Makes sense! But I’m only here because you told there was an appt, left me on hold, & asked me to wait.

I called them and at first put me on hold then hung up. Called the second time and hung up without even saying anything! I went once before to the location and they are just rude! Maybe get some training on customer service!
