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.

Took my daughter in for a contact/glasses eye exam. This was her first time for contacts. The doctor did a thorough exam and was nice. Kelli Akexander the optical manager was very patient/helpful/honest and I would add funny. She really went above and beyond her job teaching my daughter how to properly use contacts. She was not gonna give up until my daughter could get them in and out. She definitely had extreme patience.

Just as stated by another reviewer, I am (or was) a returning customer. I went there after a year because I scratched my glasses and needed new ones. I had a new eye exam and I was told they were going to call me to tell me how much I was supposed to pay because they couldn't figure it out at the moment. They never called, I already scheduled an appointment elsewhere. The first pair of glasses I got from them a year ago was great though, service was way better, something happened along the way I guess.

I just wanted to get a new prescription for my contact lens. I had the same exam from this place two years ago. Both of these visits, I had the same insurance that this place would accept. I had a fair treatment last time so decided to come back. This time, they tried to charge me the price over what my insurance allows them to. Exam is covered 100% by my insurance and I would have to pay out of pocket up to $40 for contact fitting fee. However, they told me I would have to pay about $100 for exam and fitting fee after my insurance covered, which is completely wrong. Also, My insurance has no copay for contact lens, it covers up to $120 and I would have to pay whatever amount over $120. They told me my contact lens is $62 per box (I would buy 2 boxes) and on top of the balance over $120 (which is supposed to be $4+ tax) I would have to pay about $20 as copay, which is supposed to be $0. So their total charge was about $25. I told them their system's calculation is wrong. The rep manually calculated my out of pocket cost using her calculator. Her calculator showed the correct price which was about $5 total for contact lens, but she still insisted, "Oh I screwed up my calculator, I don't know why my system is showing this price but this is what your insurance told me to charge you so you have to pay whatever amount my system shows". She could not even justify the charge amount but still had guts to force me to pay the unjustified price! Needless to say, I left saying I would not pay the amount that the seller cannot even justify and I will go somewhere else, bye. The people working at this place are a bunch of crooks. Do not have any businesses with this place. They would trick you with their distorted system for their pricing to overcharge you. Or they are just plain idiots who cannot read the insurance terms.
