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 had an extremely pleasant experience at Target Optical with Jenny. Jenny was very helpful, courteous and knowledgeable about the sports glasses I needed. She was very patient and answered all of my questions and she took her time responding to my questions. I have dealt with Jenny previously and she always makes me feel like a special customer. Thank you Jenny for your excellent customer service. I appreciate you.

Took a couple of teens visiting us from another country to the optical department for eye exams. They do not have access to eye care in their home country. Brenda, Ron and Dr. Iqbal were wonderful! They were so helpful and accommodating. Dr. Iqbal was extremely patient as we worked through the language barrier. Our teens do not speak much English. I and the Dr. do not speak their language. Google Translate was a great help, but Dr. Iqbal was very good with interacting with both our temporary kids. The facility was open, clean, bright and pleasant to be in. I highly recommend this location and their staff. Thank you Brenda, Ron and Dr. Iqbal for helping our temporary kids and for your genuine caring spirit.

Very nice staff made sure to help me the best way the can. Jennifer during my visit even let me get my frames early and used my current lenses cause they frames were broken and I didn’t have any contacts left, I was able to see and have my new frames until my new lenses came in!
