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.

Lindsey was very friendly, efficient, helpful, and completed everything expediently and without rushing me. She also inquired about prescription sunglasses along with my purchase of my eyeglasses. While I chose not to purchase them, due to the expense, she quickly was able to get a cost on both pairs. The only reason I chose an 8 rating as opposed to a 10, or 4 stars instead of 5, was the expense. However, the main expense my insurance did not cover was $75 the new photo chromatic transitional lenses and $23 on the anti-reflective lenses, and I should have went with the original transitional lenses, but she sold me on the photo chromatic transitional lenses.

I have had my glasses made at the Ward Parkway once and at Oak Park store the second time. But when the same needed repair work, these two stores had their share of excuses and I understand that the times are different. However, their response seemed like they take no responsibility. But when I called the Merriam store, Tina, if I remember correctly, was disappointed to know that I had to keep calling all Vision works location to see who can help me. She fixed my glasses in less than a day. She's very friendly and professional also.

I haven't been to the eye doctor in about 10 years. I was worried about going to a new place and having the awkward "new client" paperwork and conversations but this place was extremely laid back and everyone I talked to was super nice and patient with all the questions I had. I will absolutely recommend this place to others!

My son lost one of his contact while we were visiting KC from out of town. We found this Target Optical close to our hotel and figured they'd be able to help us as we use Target Optical here at home. The young lady helping us was super helpful! I didn't catch her name but based on the other reviews I bet it was Lindsey. She definitely went out of her way to help. When it was all said and done, we walked out with a replacement contact for my son at no charge after spending only about 10-15 minutes there. It was a great blessing and relief and it allowed us to continue our vacation without issue. I'd say it was great customer service but that day we weren't even customers - it was just great service. We were helped simply because Lindsey saw our need and was willing to help us out of the goodness of her heart. Thank you so much!

Absolutely the worst customer service experience. We had to interrupt a gossip session about the previous customer to get help. When we addressed the associate she was extremely rude and unhelpful. We immediately left and will not return.
