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 have been a patient of Dr. Luu's for a few years now. Dr. Luu is personable and answers my eye questions thoroughly. Glasses selection is ample with brands like Fendi, Kate Spade, Ray-Ban and tons more. Staff are knowledgeable and attentive.

My mom had Doctor Danny Trần for her visits. He is very optimistic and well spoken. He takes care of his patients and pays attention to every detail. My mom felt comfortable and respects him a whole lot.

We have been coming here for 2 years now! Dr. Lu is very nice and personable. Virginia and Nikki are the sweetest! My son was getting contacts for the first time and they were both very patient with him. I highly recommend going there for your glasses or contacts!

Dr. Tran is a wonderful doctor and I am recommending him to everyone that I know. I like how he handles his patients, how friendly he is and most importantly how knowledgeable he is and explaining what’s going on. A lot of doctors will explain things as if we’ve been to medical school but Dr. Tran is not like that at all. I’m glad he’s my family’s eye doctor. I wish I could give more than 10 stars

The absolute best! Dr. Luu is awesome. He is patient with those of us who are hard to fit, and does not settle for anything less than a positive result and happy client. He will work with you thru trial lenses no matter how many times you have to come back for an adjustment and is always happy to “fine tune”. His staff is just as supportive and patient. They return calls in the same day, and are always willing to go the extra mile. They explain all costs and insurance coverage, if applicable. Nikki, in the office, is a rock star. She pays attention to detail and had so much patience as I was trying on almost every pair of glasses. She was so helpful in giving ideas of what shape and size would work for my face shape. I have never had to wait over 10 minutes once I arrived for my appt. And they are open on saturday for you to pick up your glasses/contacts. (Bonus points in customer service as I cannot always get there during the week for pick up.) If you are a hard fit, especially for contact lenses, do yourself a favor and make an appointment. Dr. Luu and his staff will take care you you.
