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.

Everyone there is great. There’s a older black woman infront with a attitude even to an older woman that unfortunately I had to speak up for. She was mad she had to do her job is what is told me. After that the lady was looking at me try to start an argument. Then the ups guy came in and she was hugged up on him. It was really sad to be honest acting like that especially infront of her daughter or granddaughter. She was watching her daughter in there or some little girl that was with her.

I love this place, the customer service is great, eye doctor is great as well. I would recommend this location to everyone. I have to say that the customer service is outstanding, everyone greeted me as I entered. Hilda was very helpful, knowledgeable, and easy going, she took her time in giving pricing up front, and really just a pleasure to work with. I will 100% come back again.

Horrible service. Front desk at eye clinic bad service especially for hispanic people. Happens all the time for us but different for other races. Plus they are trying to sell the most expensive glasses for my son because its is said to be reusable, and always when I return to change the lenses, they always say that they have to change the glasses. This has to change, especially for hispanic people. I know that this is a billion dollar company, where our voice is not heard because of their money value, but this has to change. I say to people if they don't comfortable there, they shouldn't go to that place.
