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.

Staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Dr Cuff was very engaging he did not make the appointment feel rushed and very patiently answered any questions. Appointment ran on time and even though it was toward the end if the business day the staff did not make me feel like I needed to hurry so they could finish. Fabulous service.

The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The protest staff is awesome as well! They have very state of art equipment and do a lot of testing I e not had before and explain everything. The doctors are very professional and knowledgeable. The tech helping choose glasses was also great! She gave great suggestions and helped me pick out just the right ones. I’m a customer for life!

I picked up my new glasses today, and just had a wonderful time! The Performance Eyecare staff are the best: professional, hard-working, and there to serve the customer. Dr. Cuff is the best eye doctor there is! He takes his time to examine you, explain the health of your eyes, and answer any questions. Great guy! I'm already looking forward to my next annual visit! The Swansea office treats their patients with great kindness and respect, and that's a bonus to their quality frames and lenses.

My kids had appointments today. The staff was friendly and so patient. They loved the waiting area because it has a little area to putt golf balls. Dr. Marcus is so great, we highly recommend this office!
