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.

First off I am new to the area and I picked this from my VSP provider list. I’m glad I chose this place. I made the appointment online (super convenient and easy to do) and they send you a text and email reminders all of which I need. The lady who greeted me was super nice and Ethan made my experience at Vision Work extremely memorable. Dr. Pham is my favorite Dr. and she is super knowledgeable and professional. I have glasses since 10 and my previous prescription was a little off and I still see double. Now with Dr. Pham’s new prescription I can clearly see and my astigmatism is gone! Thank you so much Visionworks!

Workers will not acknowledge you when you walk through the doors. I was going to wait in the “eye exam” area b/c thats what I was there for but was told no to wait in the front. Whats really irritating is the lack of communication on how long the wait will be. I walked out after just standing there and not receiving any updates on my appointment.

So appreciate the superior customer service by Kevin Morales. He went the extra mile to get to the bottom of insurance coverage discrepancies and explain everything that no one else took the time/effort to do in other stores. If only other brick and mortar stores would recognize that customer experience is the only remaining advantage they have over online shopping, they'd have something worth visiting. Kudos to Kevin and team for seeing the value in good service.

I was furious with the service I originally had received when I made my initial purchase. I actually called & complained about the GM & the lack of answers I was getting, However Alioune Fall took care of my problem & got me the glasses that I actually needed. I was getting impatient & he reassured me he was on top of it. Love my new glasses!

I scheduled my appt online for an eye exam as a new patient and wanted a prescription for my contact lenses. When I arrived to the store, it was a little busy but I was helped by a female staff member that took care of me. Check in could be a little more organized but the quickness of my appt made up for it. Dr. Pham did my general eye exam and provided me with my contact lens prescription. I noticed when I placed my order online that they were able to verify it within the same day, which allowed 1800contacts to ship right away. Was super impressed by their quickness and I received my order in like 4 days. I will be back for sure!
