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.

Meg went above and beyond to help me. I was shopping for glasses alone for the first time and was nervous since I can't see at all. Meg brought me all the pairs she thought would look good on me and took photos of them on for me to look at. The pair I ended up getting looks better on me than any I've had before. The price was reasonable and Meg was super nice and helpful from start to finish.

One of the arms on my glasses was loose, and I could not get the screw to go back down. I called the store after seeing the great reviews and spoke with Meg. I set up an appointment and Meg had fixed my glasses very quickly and explained that they were spring loaded. She did it free of charge. I wanted to do something so I gave a nice tip and thanked her very much. She was so nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. The store was great with safety as she unlocked the door and kept social distancing. This store is great and Meg is great. I told my wife about how great it is as well. Thanks for the wonderful work.

Amazing experience! Went in to purchase a replacement pair of glasses, I was seen immediately and was able to pick up my new pair later that day. Their selection was extensive and the customer service was fantastic. Highly recommend to anyone who needs prescription eye-wear.

Meg spent almost 45 minutes a with me as I tried on almost every pair of glasses in the store. She was happy to help me and make sure I got a pair I was happy with. She also got me a great price. During my time there I also saw regular customers stop in and it was great to see that they were treated as close friends rather than just another customer.

I’ve been here for a couple years now and my experience here has been horrible! Owner is extremely rude, unprofessional, and disorganized. I’ve called and left voicemails….no response. Texted with no luck on contacting Meg (owner). Made me wait outside in the heat in 90 degree weather for 30 minutes and just stared at me not allowing me to enter after I tried contacting her for a week and didn’t get a single response. I rely heavily on my glasses to see so after I didn’t get a response for more than a week after I contacted her I decided to walk there and she continued to disrespect and engage in a unprofessional conversation with my family in regards to how rude we were for just walking there when we tried various times throughout the year to make an appointment and haven’t had luck…VERY UNPROFESSIONAL, business and I WILL NOT Be GOING HERE ANYMORE….***DONT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE **** Better places out there that offer better services like New England Eye. Only tolerated her behavior because this place was local but a 12 minute drive is not a problem if it saves me from getting constantly disrespected by the owner
