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 would like to thank Cynthia for being an amazing help and very kind person. My experience was a pleasure. Everyone was amazing. My experience with the Dr. was very thorough and answered all my questions in the best way possible.

Very good experience! Ms. Linda was very friendly and helpful. I was able to buy designer frames, sunglasses and backup glasses for my son at a fraction of the cost of a boutique optical shop. We were very pleased and would definitely purchased glasses here again!

I was sold on scratch proof lenses paid the extra money and when I brought them in was told my kisa that they don't cover scratches. I order $800 worth of glasses a year for with and family but will never give Walmart another chance to screw me. Please don't waste your time it money.

Great doctor -- Dr. White. Nice staff. Glasses prescription finished product did not work after two tries (could not see out of them) and they refused to give me a refund, so that was $1,000 down the drain.

Their eye doctor was excellent, but the staffs was horrible customer service. Prior my warranty expires they tried fix my frame by replacing it the same kind as what I told, I asked if I can switch to something different because the one I got seems weak and it damage easy. Month after, the same spot were pull off and because pandemic they have to put me on schedule, went there and told me the warranty expired. They should be honest enough to put me on the date before it expire my warranty. Is that because they didn't intention to replace it? Or what about the first time they fix my frame? I wonder if they just glued em, it wasn't really a new frame replacement. Nice huh!
