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.

Fantastic experience! Went in with a couple eye issues. I was taken right away. They went above and beyond to address my issues. Also, took the time to correct my current eye prescription, that was not originally done by their facility. The staff was very helpful, kind, and considerate.

If I could give 0 I would. Went in for pressure on my eyes. Didn't find anything and tried giving me a new prescription to fix it. Went to Acadiana vision after found out I had glaucoma starting in my right eye and that my glasses couldn't be used because the prescription was wrong. Asked them to refund or fix the glasses with the proper prescription and they refused because i saw another doctor to fix their mess up. They will misdiagnose you and won't remedy their failures.
