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.

The entire staff from the ladies at the front desk to Dr. Cummings and the vision therapists are absolutely amazing! My son is a different kid. They educate parents and even the patients on the benefits of vision therapy and how to do each exercises at home. His vision therapist, Adri went over and beyond working with my son. He truly loved his weekly sessions and never complained about doing the vision exercises he had to do weekly at home. They make it fun so he always felt encouraged to do it. He graduated from vision therapy two weeks early! He doesn’t have any visual struggles anymore. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone who has a struggling child. I am so happy we found this practice!

Everyone who works in this office is absolutely wonderful! My daughter is having some sensory issues with her eyes, and Dr. Cumings did a very thorough exam and got to the cause of the problem. In just under 2 months, her vision has improved over 50% and is doing so much better in her school work. The office staff is very warm and accommodating! I would highly recommend going here even for regular eye exams! Everyone is so kind and helpful! I am so thankful to this wonderful team who has assisted in my daughter correcting her vision issue and performing much better in school!

Adri is an incredible vision therapist. My daughter absolutely loves working with her. And we adore Vanessa as well! She was incredible with Lila during a make up session. Overall, we have been so impressed with all the staff at Clarendon!
