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 son and I just recently went for our eye exams and have been going to Lesnick Optical for years now. We love Dr. Scheinker and his staff too. This doctor is very professional, yet down to earth and has a good sense of humor. My son refuses to go to anyone else, as he really likes this doctor. Me too!

Have been a patient for a few years now! Will not be going back! I cancelled my appointment via text when they send a reminder a couple days before. They must not have received it because I got a surprise bill in the mail for $25 for cancellation. I’m glad your $25 is so important because I will no longer be a patient

The best eye doctor in the downriver area! Best staff and I highly recommend them! The doctor is hands on in everything and will do anything to make his costumers happy. They will find any style you need and all the high brnads. I love this doctor and his staff.

Every single person I encountered from the moment I arrived to the completion of my appointment was so personable and professional! No waiting, no problems, no issues, not one negative occurrence, which is a rare jewel these days!

Best Optometrist in the area! Dr. Dan really takes the time to listen to your concerns and makes you feel like family. His staff is amazing. When picking out my frames I always have a hard time. Suzanne has come to know me so well, she already has a few for me to try on before I’m out of the exam room! This place really makes me feel important to them and not a retail number.
