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 have gone to Dr. Harrison for almost thirty years. The people are very nice. The wait is usually very short and Dr. Harrison is professional and very friendly. I was given sample lenses to help figure out if I would be able to wear them before I invested a lot of money. Several years ago, I had injured my eye on a Friday night and Dr. Harrison saw me in his office on a Saturday morning before he took his daughter to college. Of course, I was impressed by this and very grateful.

I have been going to Dr Harrison for about 20 years! He is super thorough, explains everything and is helpful with any questions I may have. The staff has always been very pleasant and helpful. The facility is super clean and Dr always stays current with new devices, equipment, and testings.

Overall, what a great experience with the entire team and Dr. Steve Guzik! Professional, courteous, timely, high tech, and excellent knowledge sharing all come to mind when thinking about my experiences with this practice. Dr. Steve is very informative and thorough. He takes time to explain what needs explaining and clearly communicates what I needed to know about my eye care. Cheryl provided me with the most amazing common-sense tips for switching from rigid contacts lens to soft lens use, which for me was a failure when I tried some years ago. I left with corrected lenses and could manage them myself in the immediate day(s) following my visit. I'm anxious to get back and move onto glasses with Primary Eyesore Professionals. There is quite a selection of frames to choose from, from simple to designer. I recommend this practice.

Dr. Steve is great about explaining all the aspects of the different eye tests. He never makes you feel rushed. The office staff is meticulous, as is the office itself. They are great communicators and seem to really care about their patients. Shannon, at the desk is just awesome. She is so kind and I’ve enjoyed seeing her there for over the last decade. They also play great music in their office which is just an added bonus!

Thank you Harrison Eye Care, I feel great, finally wearing a pair of glasses that fit my face correctly! I have close to no nose bridge and so Mrs. Harrison introduced me to "alternative fit" glasses where the plastic parts that rest on your nose extend out farther, keeping the glasses on your nose and face. The knowledge of the staff of various forms of eye wear is simply amazing! I later called Lenscrafters for my mom to get her a pair, and they had no idea at all of what I was talking about. My husband and his whole family have been going here for years and now I see why! Thank you for the great service and the excellent quality of care that you all give!
