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.

If ultra friendly service and high end selection is your search then Lunette is the place. The staff is knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I am picky and indecisive and they worked with me tirelessly to find the perfect pair of glasses. I will be a customer for years to come that is a guarantee.

Fantastic selection of high-end designer eyewear for men, women and children. Most frames are made in Europe. Price is definitely higher vs. other optic shops but you get top quality merchandise (eyewear cost more, routine appts are the same $). My favorites are Lindberg or Ici Berlin for daily when I don't use contacts. The customer service is what separates Lunette from other places. They really are the absolute best at helping select the frame that suits you. They take their time, they work with you and give honest opinions so you get the perfect pair.

My family and I have worn Warby Parker for years. They just lost our business. The string popped on the bottom of my husband’s glasses’ lens. Should be an easy fix. He called to see if it could be replaced, even for a fee. Could not speak to the local store, only a central call office that said “no guarantees.” Went to the local store, person looked at glasses and said “we will have to order a new pair.” We said no thank you, took them to a local company and they repaired in 2 MINUTES for no charge! WP, horrible customer service - not coming back.

I don't have much money, but I possess an almost abject fondness for sunglasses. Going to a designer eye-wear shop can feel daunting when one's pockets are light, especially if the store is set up to alienate, to separate buyers from gawkers. At Lunette, I feel comfortable. I've been to Lunette Optic in Hingham four times - twice before the pandemic and twice during - and each time I've gone I've been treated with the utmost courtesy and respect. Joe in particular has helped me walked out each time with a gorgeous pair of hand-made frames, fitted with prescription lenses tinted to my liking. I even brought in some lovely over-sized Cazal's I purchased online to have them fitted with lenses I could see out of, and they took care of me, again with the courtesy and respect I had become accustomed to. Thank you, Joe, and thank you to everyone else with whom I've had the pleasure of talking at Lunette in Hingham!

Incredibly nice folks and eager to help, but they also let me explore/try on frames at my own leisure. They also had a wide variety of frames to choose from and quick service when ordering. Would recommend!
