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. Schatz for more years than I can remember. He came highly recommended by someone I have the utmost respect for and he did not steer me wrong. Dr. Schatz is a professional who cares about the health of my eyes and has always treated and recommended what is best to ensure I have healthy eyes for years to come. The staff has always treated me with respect, Carol, Sonia, Claudia, among others have been professional and welcoming with each visit. I could say so much more but will close by saying I would still be a patient today had I not relocated so far from his office. I can only hope I will find another eye doctor who provides me with such excellent care.

If you want your glasses fixed perfectly in short order, this is the place. If you want someone who will be warm and courteous, low prices, or a nice waiting room, this is not the place. (You could always hang out in a nearby eatery or just sit in the covered parking lot for hours, as I did.)

Went last week to get bent frames adjusted. They wanted $32 which is more than I expected or had to spare at the time. Went back today and a different guy tried to charge me $56 for the same repair.

Very disappointed. I was trying to get my glasses fixed. I brought them from my eye dr. In Forestville they referred them to me and still I couldn't get my glasses fixed. I have a pair of Gucci frames and the screen door hit my glasses and the part you put on your ear broke. Said it can't be fixed. So I went online to fix my glasses in California. They have sent me a label so maybe now they will get fixed hopefully.

I'm visiting from out of state and my contact lens ripped in my eye. Yvette got me in quickly and replaced my contact lens right away. She kindly and generously helped me out and I am eternally grateful. She's an Angel on Earth!
