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 working on my sailboat and got something in my eye and could not wash it out myself so I called Dr. Krosschell. It was a good thing! It turned out to be a piece of metal. I was seen right away, he removed the metal and put in a contact lens to wear for a day as a bandage. I was able to get right back to work and my eye is perfect again. I recommend him highly!

The exam is covered under Masshealth but glasses aren't. Then, this doctor doesn't provide the measurement needed to get glasses elsewhere, doesn't even take it - why? So I buy glasses there... even though they don't take the insurance. That's slimey. The 2 stars are because the exam was indeed performed but rushed.

Had a great experience! I was able to get an appointment quickly and the secretary was lovely, very personable and responsive. The doctor was thorough and explained everything he was doing. They order your contacts for you and have them shipped directly to you. I was also able to leave with a prescription in hand to order glasses online.

Great experience! Lydia provided awesome and exceptional service. Lydia was very helpful, resourceful, and more than accommodating to my schedule. The shop even mailed me my glasses out of state and i received a call the day after from Lydia to follow up with me. Highly recommend!
