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.

Everyone at Curtis Eye Care is very professional, caring, kind and knowledgeable. Dr. Whitely is excellent and explained fully the results of my eye exam and her glasses prescriptions are very good. I have been going to Curtis Eye Care for three years now and will definitely continue my vision care with them in the future.

Dr. Whitely was so wonderful. My very first visit to her office, she made me feel very comfortable. She listened to all my concerns, pointed out issues others have missed. Dr. Whitely was very thorough with explaining everything! I absolutely loved that. The atmosphere and staff were great. I’m glad I finally switched my eye care. Absolutely worth the drive.

I am *thoroughly impressed* with this office! Dr. Whitley is amazing with little people and big people! I feel she takes her time to explain her findings in layman’s terms and answers all of my questions to satisfaction. I have had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Curtis at another appointment, and he is very friendly and helpful. Dilation drops are not imposed here, which takes away my child’s anxiety. They have a great selection of frames with a quick-return service, helping you stay within your insurance plan or budget. Each staff person we interacted with was sincerely kind and seemed to really enjoy their job. We didn’t feel like ‘just another patient’ here. This optometrist office raises the bar! A+++
