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.

Ovrr  |  Rating: 5  |  Potomac Eye Care/ Barry Lebowitz Optometrist

My whole family have been seeing Dr Lebowitz at Potomac Eye Care since we moved to the area more than 15 years ago. He has provided great care for me, my husband, and my son. All of us having various eye conditions. Dr Lebowitz even spent time outside his open hours to help measuring my eye pressure. It is easy to book an appointment with Dr Lebowitz, because he is very accommodating. And he and his stuff are always willing to help with insurance. I would highly recommend Dr Lebowitz and Potomac Eye Care to anyone who cares about his/her eyes and also wants to have a very pleasant experience. OV

Dr. Lebowitz is a wonderful optometrist. He is very knowledgeable, competent, and honest. He truly takes the time to listen to my concerns and provide helpful recommendations. I was having issues with unexplained blurry vision. Before my visit with Dr. Lebowitz, I had seen two optometrists and one ophthalmologist who were not able to help me and only provided vague answers. Dr. Lebowitz was the only one who was able to guide me towards the correct diagnosis and treatment. My entire family now sees him and everyone is very pleased.

I called to schedule an appointment to go see Dr. Lebowitz for the free kids screening, the receptionist was very polite and professional. She was able to set 1 appointment for my three children which is very convenient. Once we arrived to the office we felt welcomed, Dr. Lebowitz did a full eye exam on my oldest son and found out he would be needing glassing in the near future. The free pediatric screening was done on my other two kids. My youngest one had no issues, however my middle son was found to be in urgent need of glasses due to high astigmatism. I'm so thankful for Potomac Eye Care's professional care, and would recommend them to all my friends and relatives
