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.

They eye doctors are wonderful. Dr. Fron is always very helpful if I am having any problems with my vision. Their selection of glasses is fabulous, including Tiffany and Coach, and my favorite Silhouette. The girls are very helpful and knowledgeable when looking for new frames, as well. Highly recommend!

I love this place. They’re fast, informative, and skilled. I had spent 3 years in 2 pairs of glasses that I couldn’t see well in, found this office, and I’m convinced they are magical. I brought my daughter for an exam, and they way the doctor explained everything made so much sense during our visit, we picked out frames for her with help that was fantastic- really, I can’t say enough good things.

Our family is one of Dr Fron’s original families from when he opened the practice 27 years ago also treating our kids when they were little. There are lots of options for eye care but have never had a reason to look elsewhere. We have never waited more than a few minutes for our appointment. All of our insurance issues are handled effectively by the staff. Im pretty particular about picking glasses and they’ve helped me through the process to find the best look.

I had a great experience here today. I got hit in the eye over the holiday weekend and I was able to get in to see the Dr. right away. He examined my eyes very carefully and took the time to explain everything to me.
