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.

There is no better place. It is always such a pleasure to come for our yearly eye checkups. The exams are very thorough and we always completely understand the results and treatments. The staff are friendly and very helpful and Dr. Mike always makes it an enjoyable experience. You will not be disappointed!

There's not enough I can say. The last time I was there, I was 45 minutes late for my appointment, or maybe I should say our appointment. Let me explain what I mean by that. My wife and I both had appointments, so through a text message, she affirmed her appointment. I later found out I also had a text message as well to confirm my appointment 45 minutes earlier. Dr. Erica Hill made arrangements for me to see her anyway. By the way, thank you very much for that! The demeanor there by everyone involved is pleasant, informative, and friendly.

This is the best place to go for eye exams and glasses. Reception staff are courteous and very helpful. They were very knowledgeable about eye insurance and worked very hard to make sure I received every benefit. The glasses representative is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The eye doctor was great - very professional and took the time to explain the results of the exam to me. This company is so much better than previously used eye companies.

My husband and I had arrived in time for my appointment, but seemed to have missed my hubby’s time. Dr Erica approved another spot to accommodate him. We have been patients for several years now and always find the doctor and staff very pleasant and knowledgeable to all the procedures, helping with picking glasses and filling prescriptions needs. Thank you all for your kindness!
