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.

We went to this location today because I had purchased a pair of glasses from a different location and since the beginning I had issues with my glassses until they finally broke! We decided to go in to Riverside and Cesar helped us out so much I am truly grateful and we will be coming back and recommending this location 10000% Thank you so much!

My family has purchased glasses here for more than +8yrs and always received such amazing service from Cesar. Unfortunately, I believe he is no longer employed here :( But I really wanted to comment on such thoughtful, truly helpful and amazing service that he provided over so many years. Thank you, Cesar!

Waited about 30 minutes even though I had an appointment. Was charged much more for an eye exam than was told on a phone call prior to visit. The optometrist was listed as in network with my insurance provider but he said he wasn't. That is probably the insurance providers fault.

My family and I have been going to this place for 20+ years. I never had an issue until Cesar left. Cesar returned our call within 24 hours and his customer service skills were excellent. We never had to call him to check if our glasses or contacts were ready for pick-up! I am truly disappointed with current management! They never answer the call. Voice messages are returned after leaving multiple messages! They never call to inform our glasses/contacts are ready! This place needs a better management and customer service person!
