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.

Dr. Rob (Moses), is always a great doctor but today he went above and beyond. First,let me start by telling you there was a medical emergency there that involved a young man experiencing light headedness and confusion...Dr. Rob called EMTs and took his vitals and spoke with him while waiting for the EMTs. This young man was mentally challenged and I guess he had told Dr. Rob he'd had trouble with people saying mean things to him. Dr. Rob explained to him that he's seen him over the years and knows he's a good person and to ignore what those people had said because their opinion didn't matter. It was heart warming to witness the concern Dr. Rob had! I was there with my husband and our 2 sons all for appointment for glasses. My husbands glasses broke and he was in contacts that were *old* Dr. Rob told him he didn't want him to not be able to see correctly and worried about the health of his eyes so he gave him a free set of contacts to wear until his glasses came in. Honestly Dr. Rob did even more for us but I want to just simply get across that Dr. Moses Senior started this practice because he cares about his patients and this community...Dr. Rob is doing an amazing job continuing the same legacy. Thank you and I HIGHLY recommend anyone and everyone to go here!
