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 wonderful experience with Angie at visionworks today. She displayed excellent customer service and was willing to help out. I just wanted to say thank you for all the help you gave me. You're one in a million!

I went to visionworks in lincolnwood mall today to buy a pair of glasses and they have a mask policy, which is fine. What's weird is that I was told that they had masks for customers if they have appointments, but they don't have masks for walk-ins looking to purchase glasses. And the store was literally two staff and me. And this is in a mall that's on its last legs and usually pretty empty. Anyway, it wasn't a good welcome for someone looking to spend money with their business. Oh well. Chicago eye care center, here I come!

Believe the bad reviews! I wanted to give them a try, I booked an appointment online ( 3 days ago) for monday (today) at 5pm, I received the confirmation email about my appointment and was asked to complete a pre-check in ( general information and insurance info). I left early from work and I showed up to my appointment at 4:45pm. I told the woman in the front desk I had an appointment at 5pm, she replied that: it looks like we don’t have an appointment for the time you chose, so I will ask the doctor if we can see you today or if we have to reschedule”. After a couple of minutes another woman approached me and told me: “we can’t see you today, so we need to reschedule”. I asked her if they had called me. She said no. I asked her if they sent me an email to notify me about canceling my appointment… she said: I am sorry, I apologize but we need to move the appointment. I told her that if they can put themselves to n my shoes, if they think that is ok? She just kept saying: we apologize but we have to reschedule. As if with her “i am sorry” I could recover my time off from work and time spent in traffic. Needless to say, I just left without re-scheduling. I am glad I didn’t give my business and any extra time to this place. With so many optical places around just go somewhere else, or you will regret not listening to the bad reviews as me.
