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.

Tried to patronize this location today despite mixed reviews. Scheduled appointment for 12:45pm. Received a call from someone to verify insurance followed by a text stating my appointment was rescheduled to 12:50pm. No big deal, only a 5 minute difference. Received confirmation text today (day of appointment) confirming 12:50pm appointment time. Walked into location at 12:53pm and was told that my appointment was at 12:45 by receptionist. Advised her of the text for rescheduling to 12:50 pm to which she responds “that was an accident when I was putting in a note, our system works in 15 minute increments so 12:45pm was the correct time. So, I will to have to reschedule you for our next appointment which will be the last appointment after the patient before the doctor’s break.” No clue what any of that meant, but I asked her to clarify that due to an error on their part, I now have to reschedule? She continues to say “yes, we only have a 10 minute grace period and have already started to see the 1:00pm appointment.” Again, its 12:54pm at this point, which even without the rescheduling error would have still been within the 10min grace period…so why am I being rescheduled? Apparently, that minor fact was irrelevant to the receptionist who continued to insist on a reschedule. Needless to say I declined any other appointments and will not attempt to schedule again. 2stars were given as the appointment setting process was very easy and they seemed pleasant over the phone.

I had a wonderful experience thanks to you social employee named Jasmine. I don't have insurance and was worried about the cost of my new glasses I desperately needed, and thanks to her I was able to afford them and that is so very helpful especially in these times of inflation. Thank you Jasmine and thank you Visionworks for my beautiful new glasses. I'm forever grateful. They're amazing and I love them.
