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.

Linda Trudeaux  |  Rating: 5  |  Eye Care Center very happy that I chose this location for my eye care needs, Dr Vincent was so very thorough & patient as I am one who exercises my rights to be informed & asked plenty questions, the entire staff was kind, a lady named ms Jezel deserves to be mentioned because I made changes to frames with her being patient as well. Thanks to them all for their above average customer care

If you need a great not just good eye Dr. this is the place to go. I never had anyone care so much about not just your eye but also your health. I highly recommend Blahnik Vision Center. Thank you from Sandra Brown

Used Dr. Blahnik for 25 years and finally had enough. Staff (always new faces) is and always has been horrible. Horrible attitudes and no one ever knows what they're doing. Went to my appointment January 2021, was treated badly for the last time by the staff, left without being seen and they were not even phased to lose a customer. Would not give any stars but not possible.

I've been a patient of Dr. Blahnik for over 20 years... he's a fabulous Optometrist. I recommend him to everyone I know; in fact, everyone in my family with vision problems sees him. He is caring and compassionate to old and young. My son, who is now 19 years old, has been seeing him since he was 10. Also, my mother who has Alzheimer's is a patient. He is caring, knowledgeable, respectful and a extremely thorough. Even though I live in Baton Rouge, I wouldn't consider seeing another doctor. He's the best on the East and West Bank and any Optometrist in Baton Rouge!

My husband had an emergency today at work and needed to see an eye doctor immediately. The people at the eye center were very kind, curtious, and professional and the doctor took care of his problem right away. I will definitely recommend my friends and family to go here. Hope Bacala
