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.

Stephanie was extremely professional and very thorough about the deals they had and which decision was best between using insurance versus paying out of pocket, the difference was about $2. But she was not pushy in the least and I received the 2 pair of glasses within 8 days after ordering! Last time I ordered glasses was from Henry Ford Optical and that took 3 weeks! I was very pleased with the amount of time it took!

Great service and many styles of eye glass frames to choose from. Dr. Calder was very professional and very through, gave me a few more test than I've had done before... I've been wearing glasses for over 40 years and this was so refreshing and personal, I felt like their "only customer". I took advantage of their Amazon Local ad and saved some $$. Now, after wearing my new eyeglasses with new updated lenses, my eyesight is much improved... And get this, they were even able to swap out the lenses on my Sport Sunglasses for ridin' my Harley, didn't have to buy a new frame.

After an epic fail from another retailer, I gave my local Eyeglass World a call. They were able to get me in same day for an exam. The entire team was just fantastic. They have a great selection of frames and let me say, I'm super excited to get my Ray-Ban sunglasses. Please give Eyeglass World a try, you'll be just as happy as I am.

Staff and doctor were unbelievably rude. I had my records sent over and the eye doctor insisted I had last been seen at a chain and town I had never been to. She looked at my lenses and could not get my Rx from them. After the exam I wanted glasses and contacts. When I found the minimum price of frames to be steep I said I would just buy contacts. After that the guy at the desk got even more indescribably rude. I kept calling to find if the contacts were ready and I was eventually told the paper with the Rx got wet, so they were never ordered. When they finally told me they had come in they said no need to stop back, he would deliver them. They did not come and he said he put them "on my porch." I told him I lived in an apartment but he insisted he had the right address. I never could get any records from them so I was out the money and needed another eye exam from a new doctor.

Just picked up my third pair of glasses from this wonderful retailer. Love the great selection of all the latest frames and the friendly, helpful, knowledgeable service. Also love the convenience as a Northville resident and loyal supporter of local businesses. Keep up the exceptional service to our community, Urban Optiques!
