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 was going to schedule and appointment. But when I ask if they do a free eye exam they said yes. But there is conditions. Or order to get the free eye exam you have to get the two pairs for 69 dollars. So I told them that I wouldn't be able to get the two because I need a better pair due to my eyes being so bad. I said it would probably cost me 500 or more for one pair of glasses. Then I was told I'd have to also pay for my eye exam. I guess I don't understand this. I'd be spending far more on one pair of glasses then what people pay for two pairs. Sad that because I'm not getting two pairs I don't get the free eye exam. When I'd be spending far more.

Takes months for trial pairs to come in. But the worst part is the Drs examining office is hotter than hades! It's at least 89° in there I almost passed out, and you NEVER get to hear whats going on with your eye health cause he whispers everything to the wall. When you ask him to repeat he whispers it barely in your direction. It's like he whispers only to himself. You'd be better off going ANYWHERE else cause you'll get actual information without suffering heat stroke.

Poor customer service rude people. Was not offered a protection package when we first purchased glass because as I was told sales girl was new and didn’t know about it. I went 4 months later saying that I was having trouble with glasses and they gave me a headache. Lady who took the info was upset that we were not offered protection so she would have to talk o manager. I said I understood and would wait for a call. Late that afternoon she call and said manager would not honor anything because girl did charge. Was this my problem. No do I ended up paying over 400.00 on glasses that I can wear. Be careful about cheap glasses that are not cheap.

I'm done with this place. For so many reasons. To start, Dr. John Moran needs to retire. He is INCREDIBLY slow and gets confused, easily. He gave me my eye exam a year ago, and despite knowing that I had cataracts, and my vision would eventually change, AB STILL sold me eyeglasses, instead of suggesting I talk to the eye surgeon, first. After all was said and done, I came to AB a month ago, with my new script, and they screwed both pair up, which caused me to basically throw $70 down the drain. This place is HORRIBLE... find a better one.

Bad customer service. I was told today while I wanted to order glasses that I had to give my seat away to other patients. The other patient’s were not elderly or disabled. Not sure of employee’s name but she had blonde hair and wore glasses. If you want rude service then shop here. I had been a customer with them for a few years but will not go back there.
