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.

This "America's Contacts & Eyeglasses" is not the Best at all. I brought a brand new frame from another store to order new glasses. Unfortunately, the glasses they made are too heavy with thick High Index lenses (1/4 inch thick single vision instead of Trivex), the lenses are too strong optically for me, and the brand new frame returned skewed. The one lens disconnected at the first cleaning. Never buy their High Index plastic lenses! Junk! Plus, they lost the original glass lenses that came with the frame. When I told them that I do not like these glasses, the manager lost her temper. She yelled at me that she is done with me. This is considered horrible customer service! Besides, their prices do not match their advertising like 2 pairs for $79 or $99 plus a free eye exam. That is not true! See the pictures of the brand new glasses I received from this store.

Efficient, friendly, helpful staff at every point in my visit. From my inital call to inquire about their deal, to the first rep who assisted me in the exam. The OD is professional and did a thorough exam. My favorite part of the visit, though, is Zaneta. She gave me excellent customer service and her expert stylist opinion to select the best frames for me. Then, she did what she could to make sure I received the best my money could buy, and I really appreciated her efforts. I'd highly recommend this store.
