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.

My wife and I both see Dr. Hayes for our yearly checkups and prescriptions. He has always been very attentive, fun and had empathy for vision struggles that we have. Recently I've had a health development arise and called the office to schedule an appointment with him. Since it wasn't an emergency, I needed to wait two days to get on his calendar. I was actually looking forward to speaking with him given the concerns I have about what is going on with my health / vision. When I arrived, however, the front office staff did everything they could to dissuade me from seeing him. One minute they would say "Oh, you can see the Doctor" and then follow it up with "Well there's a prescription already existing, so you probably don't need to see him". This was being said without clear understanding of the concerns I even wanted to discuss with the Doctor which I wasn't about to reveal to a secretary or a technician in an open waiting room with people in it especially since the answer would have been something like "Oh, yeah, you'll need to discuss that with the Doctor". No, really? So, if you need to see Dr. Hayes and it's something outside of your normal checkup regimen make sure the front office staff know in no-uncertain-terms that you need to "SEE HIM". My appointment was at 2:45pm and at 3:10pm he was still in with two people which leaves me to conclude that the front office, in their infinite wisdom, thought they were able to address the concerns I had. Now I'm still stuck with blurry vision and health concerns and don't know who to speak to. I guess I'll try my GP.

Both the Dr and receptionist guy swore I couldn't possibly have a ZERO co pay for my eyeglasses; even went so far as to tell me I was confusing this with my previous health insurance. I called Humana and was totally correct. Still Timo wouldn't apologize for the humiliation and aggravation of their treatment of me.

Best visit I have ever had at an eye doctor. Everyone was very professional and couldn’t be more friendly. Very thorough and very good at explaining what was going on. Thanks again ladies, I will defiantly be back and I will be recommending your office.

I could not be happier with the care we receive at Saline Optometry. Drs. Carder and Hayes are fantastic with our whole family. They are talented, thorough, and kind. All of the staff are helpful and a joy to work with.

Professional - Thorough - Competent - Friendly. Saline Optometry is one of the most professionally run businesses I've ever visited. This was the most thorough eye examination I've had in nearly 60 years, even better than the Kellogg Eye Center in Ann Arbor. Dr. Hayes is an outstanding vision expert with an obvious and significant wealth of knowledge regarding eye health and visual acuity. In addition, he has invested in state-of-the-art equipment which greatly improves the value of the exam. And, the professionalism doesn't stop there, the entire team is pleasant, competent, helpful and patient. It took me nearly two months to get an appointment - because their office is so popular and well-respected, and now I see why. You won't be disappointed if you visit Saline Optometry - they have earned their 5-star rating.
