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 staff are friendly, the service is wonderful and I've never had to wait when I've gone in for my appointments. My glasses were ready when promised and they make sure they fit and work for you before you walk out the door. I'd recommend them to everyone.

Wow! I have never in my life had a pair of glasses that fit my face this well! My ears are a bit crooked, so glasses are usually always a bit crooked on my face, as well. Not this pair! They were measured and fit perfectly just for me! So pleased!

Will wait awhile before I write the final review however at this point we are out several hundred dollars and there is no sign of my wife's new glasses. Old glasses strain her eyes causing headaches. Have now waited two weeks with no communication.

My wife and I both have been seen here and highly recommend them. They very friendly and get you in very quickly nice folks. My wife got my new glasses in about a week and is very pleased with them. I have more problems so it will take a while before I am ready for new glasses.

My family and I have been clients/patients of Dr. Compton and staff for many years. Following recent cataract surgery I returned to get new glasses fitted. Equipment and procedures in this office are "top of the line." With Steve's son to soon join the practice, even more procedures will be available. Walter Sexton
