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 was in need of a new prescription for contact lenses ASAP because I am traveling outside the country and I put this task behind the burner. I found myself here because I knew they would take walk-ins. I had taken my daughter here before but just for vision test. Definitely convenient for on the go situation. The ladies in the front are helpful when its not busy but for sure is knowledgeable with the products and handling insurance. I do have to comment about the eye doctor, he has some tendencies to not listen and quite frankly, today he pretty much dismissed my on what I have to say. I think I may have bothered him (how I felt) sitting and relaxing. I wanted to ask for tinted / colored contacts but of course I was ignored. He might probably forgotten that I paid out of pocket for his services.

Leaving the Vision Center now feeling alive! I knew I've always needed glasses but not how much better I'd feel wearing them. Thomas helped me when I first went in a week ago, and not knowing what to expect, he steered the ship and I trusted him. I'm glad I did. Glasses look great and sunglasses look even better! Service was amazing!
