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.

Peter and Steven are absolutely incredible! From the moment I walked in for my eye exam, they were friendly, organized and clearly love their jobs! Peter helped with what seems like a million adjustments on my glasses! I will never go anywhere else. Thank you all so much! Happy New Year!

The staff is wonderful, the wait however is not. The office is packed, a little dated too and the appointment was scheduled for 3:30, my husband wasn’t called until 4:25. Then had to wait 20 minutes after having his eyes dilated to see the doctor. At 5:20 we asked for a status and was told there were 2 more patients ahead of us. Finally called back at 5:30 as we walking out to leave, he is probably just sitting in a room rather than the waiting room at this point. I think it’s so rude to under value patients time and make them wait without even offering an explanation. Apparently this is normal. I should have know better,my mom had a similar experience. I guess the doctors are great...we shall see.

Super helpful! Fast and friendly! They gentleman fixed my monocle in a snap and even offered to custom make me some sort of fused “double monocle” invention that would float magically over my face if i were interested but i had to decline because i just couldn’t for the life of my imagine what i would do with my left hand all day if it wasn’t holding up my single seeing eye glass!??

Peter & Dr. Leung were awesome. They explained everything and Peter helped me find out what my new insurance was when I was unable to find it myself. He found a bunch of discounts for me for my glasses. The doctor was super friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend coming here for all your eye related needs.

Such a pleasant experience. I was here for my sons first eye exam. They were so patient with him and made him feel great since he needed glasses. From the receptionists to Peter, and Kevin. I would highly recommend them to family and friends.
