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 went into Good Look today in hopes of replacing a cracked lens on my Ray Ban sunglasses. Audrey made this possible in seconds. Dealing directly with someone that has the answers and can deliver customer needs is reassuring. I would highly recommend Good Look to everyone!

Very well run place of business. Walked in and was greeted right away. Place is clean and very well organized. I saw my dentist within ten minutes. He was personable and well spoken. Took x rays photos and completed my cleaning right there. I would highly recommend EyeSmile.

Amazing service and selection of glasses. The owner was so knowledgeable and she took the time to explain things to me. Very personable, great customer service. I ended up purchasing a pair of beautiful Ray Ban sunglasses and prescription glasses. I LOVE THEM! I can't wait to pick them up. I am recommending Good Look Optical to my friends and family. What a wonderful experience. Thank you!

Excellent selection of frames in this little shop! And Audrey has an exquisite sense of style and fit, and offered really helpful guidance. I found a great pair of glasses. Grateful to have found this place and her.

First, I would recommend Dr. A as an eye doctor. She is thorough and very professional. However, I would NOT buy any glasses from their small retail section. I like to buy from small businesses, so after I received my prescription from Dr. A I decided to purchase prescription sunglasses from her. This was a huge mistake. I selected and ordered my sunglasses in April. About two weeks later they came but were way to wide for my face because the left temple kept bending out. They told me I may just need to get used to new frames and to give it a try for two weeks. Well, the problem continued. I went back for an adjustment. It took them two hours to adjust the frames. I gave up and went home. Annoyed that I had spent nearly $500 on glasses that clearly were defective I then called back. They ordered new temples. I went back again for that. No luck, the new temples didn’t work. They then said oh it is the base curve that is wrong and that sometimes that happens with prescription sunglasses. At this point it was August, I had been back and forth to their store 4 times. I asked for a refund and they said all sales were final because the lenses were specially made for me. But somehow they were willing to let me pick out new frames and still cut new lenses because of some warranty they have with the lens provider. I did this and finally I got working glasses by the end of September— 5 months later. I am now writing this review because already I have a scratch on these new lenses. I keep my sunglasses in their case at all times when they are not on my face and have only used the cloth they came with to wipe them. I cannot believe this is the quality I am stuck with after the time and money spent. The staff is friendly at eyesmile and Dr. A is a good doctor, but buyer beware. Do not waste your money here. Unfortunately, you are better off going to a chain retailer
