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.

The doctor himself was great! Super informative and patient with questions. The lady at the front desk with short dark hair was one of the rudest people I have spoken to in person and on the phone. Not only was she rude to patrons but to other employees also.

My son and I had our first visit last week with Dr. Jeff. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and attentive his staff was. Dr. was very thorough and spent extra time to answer all of my questions. That put me at ease, as this is the first time my son has need glasses. I have already recommended his practice to friends. They are fantastic! Thank you for making it a great experience for both of us!

Tried something different. I usually go to the V.A. for glasses, but I moved to private practice in 2021. I found I.E.A. on Facebook. I made an appointment. I showed up 5 minutes late, Oops! 5 minutes of paperwork and they tended to me right away. I received the best care. Brittany was a blast, but still very professional. Dr. Jeff was thorough and professional. Everyone was friendly. In one day, i had my exam and I was fitted for frames. My new glasses came in a few weeks later. I love them. I can see everything now. I feel like I'm 20 again. Thanks to Dr. Jeff and Staff.

The staff is very professional and friendly. Most important I always feel that I received a very extensive eye examine when I go to Absolute Vision. Absolute Vision also has a nice selection eye wear.
