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.

Management and staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I was having some issues when I tried my new glasses on in store and they were able to fix it right away and make some at home suggestions to allow my eyes to adjust to the new frames. I highly recommend this location! Thank you!

Have been a client of Absolute Vision Care for nearly 20 years, and there's a reason why. Everything. Everyone on staff is friendly and accommodating, and Dr. Peterson is simply the best. He takes his time to get to know you, and to educate you on your eye health.

Dr. Peterson has been my doc for years, so I was reluctant to be seen by anybody else, but getting glass in my eye made it necessary. Due to some of the issues, Dr. Lopez wanted me in ASAP. The staff was super accommodating getting me in, and Dr. Lopez was fantastic. Absolute Vision Care has and will be the only place I trust with eyes. Thank you all for your care!

If it wasn't for the doctor id give no stars, Honestly i had high hopes not only did i travel 18 miles to get my glasses done when they called they gave me specific dates and time to go of course none fit my schedule but i had to wait 2 months until I had a day off, but when i got them they were so loose the optician had to grab the used pair from the board which was ok, i understood the lab made them like that, but the lense is all out they on the front like it very noticeable I'd take a picture but i can't attach, and theyre falling down on me, not what i was hoping to get.
