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 Attended Professional...I purchased prescription readers for 168$ and moved away from over the counter readers which can range from 7 to 20$ and basically do just about the same thing but a more fashionable appeal (looks for this matter). This being said, i was instantly caught of gaurd with the quality of the case given to protect the 168$ readers, a very budget cut 1$ soap carrying container to say the very least. You're better of sticking to over the counter readers & shy away from fashion and save yourself 150$ they do the same work with a better case cover. Really Wal-Mart how about an upgrade on the case?. Workers get 5 STARS*

Dont bring your kids here these people are always rude and the man is worse then the woman. He has no patience. They barley have options and the place is super small. Once i get these glasses im looking for a new place.

I used to be a customer of this BJ's Optical till they took the frames of my sunglasses to put in new lenses and didn't give them back till 38 days later. I had to call MULTIPLE times about my glasses they didn't know where they were. When I was finally able to talk to a manager on day 35 I was given attitude and offered a $25 refund due to my "troubles" I was told it took long because my lenses were "jacked up" which was super professional! When I expressed my obvious and understandable frustration, no raised voices or rude language used (even though I really wanted to), I was given attitude and then hung up on! I can't believe I was treated this way. I am definitely telling all my friends, family, and colleagues to NEVER shop here unless you want to be treaded like dirt!

Kerri Bilski and the rest of the staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Her experience and professionalism made choosing the right frame a choice between excellent options. I just picked up my new glasses, and everything about them is exceptional. I could not be happier. Thank you very much Thoren Optical!

Eye ware is extremely limited for those with Medicare and/or MassHealth and the Equipment used is about 100yrs. Old and that is NOT an exaggeration...Very small place so don't bring "ALL" the kids or you''ll be screaming at them the whole time your there.
