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.

They joined some kind of eye group, and they don't honor what used to be 2 scratch replacement lenses (only one replacement). I may be mistaken, but I thought it was 2. The judgment is out on whether they will have the same quality of service.

The office has such a great feel, and Dr. Smith is so enthusiastic and upbeat. Also, he and the rest of the staff are so knowledgeable and helpful whenever I have any questions. They are a fantastic team, and I feel so comfortable with them caring for my eyes!

The care here is Excellent. Everyone is very pleasant and helpful. They take time to explain everything and answer any questions you may have. They have a nice selection of frames to choose from and additional options. I highly recommend going here for your eye care needs.

Not only was Dr. Smith incredibly friendly, his staff were great as well. The best eye experience I’ve ever had! Super helpful! I had to bring my baby and she was a little fussy and his staff helped with her so I could finish my exam! So kind!

Unfortunately with the changeover from this being owned by Dr Huizengas to now another RX optical I will not be a patient there anymore. I have been going there for over 15 years and previously I went there in the early 1990's and then moved to Indiana for several years then. Dr Huizenga is excellent and I would give a 5 star but the office staff mostly I could only give a 1 star or less. Between lack of personality and listening to what I was looking for in a frame was completely ignored. Another gentleman was looking for frames and wasn't seeing something affordable and this lady said I can show you the cheap frames. I was like that is so insulting. He left and I heard another lady say that same thing to another lady looking at frames. Ridiculous. I have recommended this eye doctor office to several people because it wasn't part of franchise America. Now it is part of RX optical and I will not bother making anymore appointments. Will be looking for recommendations to a family type owned Eye Doctor. Just ridiculous.
