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 always drove past the office but had a doctor downtown where I worked pre-Covid. Was looking for something local once Covid hit, and chose to try out 730 North Optometry based upon all the great reviews. Was immediately blown away by how pretty their office was. They have a huge selection of beautiful frames, even my very particular child was able to find something she liked. Dr. Yin is awesome, so friendly you forget you are visiting a doctor at times. I've seen her for eye issues as well as routine eye exams. The entire staff is super friendly, helpful and always provide excellent customer service. Definitely recommend!

I've been going to the eye spot, and specifically Dr. Pikus for years. What you'll notice here are the atmosphere and collection. The team is great to work with and full of personality. And whether you're looking for the classic frames, or something more hip/bespoke, the eye spot is exactly that. The Spot.

Highly recommended! Dr. Angela Oh is really the best - my family and I have been going to go see her for years! They are very thoroughly with their exams and have options where you don't have to get your eyes dilated for your eye exam. They are very punctual with their appointments, have lots of frame options with people who are more than wiling to help you the type of frames with you want.
