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.

Dr. Violette was highly recommended to me by my daughter who is a patient of his. At my first examination I was tested on some pretty impressive machinery. I don’t believe that I have ever been tested on equipment like this before. After that Dr. Violette did a thorough eye exam being very efficient all while explaining the process and putting me at ease. I was very concerned about a problem I was having and he assured me that he would be able to fix the problem. I was very impressed by the good doctor’s calming and soft spoken manner and enjoyed my visit. I would highly recommend The Optical House to everyone I meet.

Highly recommend this business for eye doctor checkups and eyewear purchases. Every staff member I've interacted with has been extremely helpful. Kate is exceptional at her job helping folks pick out the best frames for their face, as well as adjusting them to best fit.

Dr. Violette does a superior job for my total vision care. He and his entire team do it all from scheduling to billing insurance to updated frames selection. I’ve gone to them for 20 years. They have a great business, and best thing is the feel of a family business as they want you to get their best on every appointment or pair of glasses you need to get.

I always love coming to see Dr Violette and his team. They are always so friendly, patient and kind. Not to mention they know what they’re doing and they do it very well. From Sandy at the front desk to Dr Violette’s thorough I exam and the wonderful lady who helped me pick out the perfect pair of glasses.They are all great with the chitchat during the visit. I always leave there feeling like I just left dinner with my friends. Thank you Dr Violette and your team for always taking care of me and making going to the eye doctors a wonderful experience!
