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.

It is always a pleasure to visit America’s Best in Niles. The pre-test technician, optometrist, and optician who take care of me have been friendly, caring, professional and just great. I love the selection of beautiful frames offered here. I find it so hard to wait for my new glasses to come in! I also look forward to next year and repeating the getting new glasses experience! Thank you America’s Best!

I went to get the lenses on my glasses replaced because I have two cats that love pushing them off the shelf. The lady that helped me (didn't get her name) was very energetic and friendly. Turnaround time was 25 minutes. I can actually see through the crystal clear lenses now. Thank you, Eye Story!

I recently purchased eyeglasses at the Niles location. Crissy assisted me with the pre-tests and finding a nice frame. Despite assisting multiple customers, and staff members, she was courteous, helpful and quick! The store was clean and they always sprayed / wiped areas and any glasses customers tried on, immediately. Thank you Crissy, I appreciate the assistance!

Mark at vision works was very helpful and the customer service was excellent. He helped me to find a great pair of glasses that I really loved and took his time to help me choose the perfect pair. Very glad I chose to come here, had a wonderful experience and will be sure to come back for all my vision needs. Thank you!

Best eyeglass place I've ever been to! Staff is extremely knowledgeable, and everyone is super friendly. Their glasses are all of great quality, and they have a big selection. The glasses and prescription were also cheaper than any other eyeglass place I went to! I drove almost two hours to come here, and it was worth the drive! I will be coming here from now on to get my glasses. Thanks so much, Chicago My Optical!
