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.

I see that the majority of people had great experiences, mine wasn’t that great. The person who greeted me as well as the Dr were great! Answered all my questions and very attentive. I was then waiting for someone to assist me with my contacts. She very kindly greeted me and asked me to have a seat; which I did Then she asked if I was going to buy the club membership. I asked her to explain which she did. I said no and her response was then you owe $99.00 I said ok but was waiting for my sample contacts. She said I can’t give them to you until you pay. I wasn’t prepared for that I paid. She handed me my contacts and paperwork and left Not how do they fit, here is some solution and tissues or more importantly, one of the lenses was a Toric lens which takes about 5 to 10 minutes to clarify I had to find her in one of the rooms talking and laughing with coworkers. I felt her customer services was lacking. She’s a very sweet person but missed an opportunity for glasses I wasn’t decided on glasses and had a few questions but since she didn’t ask, Warby Parker gets my business Thank you
