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.

Had a really good experience, felt like everyone knew what they were doing. Pricing was also very competitive for glasses and contacts versus online or Walmart for example. Will be going back for yearly exam.

Dr Barnes was very thorough and personable. Would recommend for anyone.and I’m hard to please but no really this is one of first reviews I have ever done and I actually took the time to do this. No really Dr Barnes was amazing he was running all over the place trying to find me different colors in the frames I liked he really cared and took his time w me.

Great experience with every visit! My husband has some issues due to eye surgery years ago. Dr Vaught was referred to us for our special needs and now we wouldn't go anywhere else. Knowledgeable, detailed and most of all caring. Highly recommend Dr. Vaught and her staff.

Very nice and helpful! I had an exam for the first time in many years and they were very patient with me and explained everything. They even spent the time to go over frames with me and tell me what they thought.

One star is way to good for this place!! I went and during all the test they do, EVERY time you go ( money hungry place) I told them AGAIN my eyes stay extremely dry. They did the test AGGAI, was done not a year ago, got the same result, yrs you have dry eye disease. Instead of giving me anything yo help they try to sell me 100 dollar fish oil pills that she bought to sell in her office. What a joke. Then I got my new glasses wore them over a month and I can see better without them they have me come in hand me the cardboard paper with letters on it. Turn on a super bright light so it's easier to see. Then has me look in the machine that determines the perscript I need. Then tells me with my prescription my glasses let me see clear far away and up real close, anything in between will remain blurry. So if you are on the road with me watch out I can't read street sighn till I'm up on them. I'm not joking at all, they are all blurry as hell. But that so called optometrist says it's normal. Lol Long story short, I went to another place today and was told the script they gave me was to weak. New glasses ordered and my insurance is stopping all payments to Frechette rip off eye center. NO matter what ugly ass paint you put on a funeral home it's still a death home.
