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 have been trying to call to order contacts for three days now. I have left messages and have not gotten a call back. I can’t even find an email on the contact page or at all on the website. I can’t even find an appointment request because it says to call. How can I call when no one answers? I’ve called back to back and no answer. I’m taking my business elsewhere.

I have the best experience with Dr. B - Dr. Barsamian for eye exam. I brought my son there 2 months ago and love his energy, friendliness and dedication with him, I decided my last eye doctor just plain horrible - I will come visit with him. I am so glad I did! He was experienced, patience, listened to my concerns, found the best solution for my contact and eye glass solution, explained everything easy simple term. I definitely recommend him to anyone. The good size parking lot is next to the building, easy to find. Has a nice room to shop for glasses and the optician was very helpful.

Best optometrists are right here! Began with Dr. Grossman in the 80’s and now see his daughter, Dr. Sleight. If you want the best eye care … go here. Excellent staff of optometrists, opticians and office staff.

I needed a new pair of glasses, and after googling I decided to visit Kofo's Family Eyecare. Dr. Kofo is identical to Mayer Domino in Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and the equipment he uses are quite precise. The only 2 downs are that the selection of frames are rather limited, and the chairs in the waiting room are tearing; they seriously need new chairs for customers. Overall, I am happy with the new pair of glasses.

Wonderful experience today with a very thorough, caring doctor. He is professional but down to earth and explained everything patiently and clearly to me. He is kind and he and his staff are very friendly with good senses of humor.
