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 recently visited this office as an emergency patient with an eye injury. I was not a patient of record there however, they still managed to squeeze me in. Their care for me felt like just that, true care for a patient. From the clinic, to the dr.s and front staff, all have been kind, caring, welcoming all while maintaining a professional and skilled facility. I would highly recommend this office! Thanks to a great team!

I wish I liked the clinic, but I just don't feel cared even for a bit there. Everyone is so busy and indifferent. I thought I didn't get along with the doctor so I made my next appointment with another. He told me that my eyes are getting worse and to my questions literally showed with his hand that I'm bothering him to do the paperwork. Then I was let go with a new prescription and no goodbye. It took 3 months to get my exam report from that visit. The glasses that I ordered after the first visit: I had many pairs throughout my life but those I ordered there are the worst in my life: heavy, thick, and questionable prescription which made me uncomfortable.

Only because I can't give it a zero! Been wearing contacts for about 45 years. Worst fitting of my life. Put differently...i can see just great out of one eye. Thanks oakland vision! Keep up the great work. This place is a disaster.
