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 had a great experience. I had a great experience with target optical in glenview. Dr. Kelly aung was awesome and so was heather who helped with the eyeglasses. I had a previous eye infection before seeing dr. Kelly, she was very helpful, I needed to get treatment for scars on my cornea. After the treatment was completed, I went back for another exam and eyeglass. I would definitely recommend this location for eye exams and eyeglasses. Very kind, patient, helpful and understanding, they worked with me to get me all fixed up and back on track in order to see properly again.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Beckerman’s for years! There is no one else I’d trust with my vision. Dr. B and all the office staff are wonderful. They educate you and do what’s right, not what’s most expensive. They teach their interns well and if Dr. B ever retires, I’d be sure to switch to someone he trained. Highly recommended!

I had a very good experience at Glenview Vision Care. Dr Beckerman and his staff gave a thorough explanation of each test. They were friendly and listened to my concerns. They gave me many options for meeting my vision needs and they even fixed my old glasses! I will definitely be returning.

My husband and I highly recommend Glenview Vision Care. We see Dr. Harthan who provides thorough eye exams and compassionate, knowledgable care. We have purchased eye glasses where staff have helped us find just the right frame, worked with our budget and eye glasses are high quality. The office setting is warm, friendly, and professional. Five stars all the way around!
