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.

First off we did not have DR. sheldon. We had another lady doctor named Jane Blenker. She was awful and did not treat anyone she interact with care. First off she called us out in front of the whole shop how i was 7 minutes late to the appointment. I did apologized twice before and after but she was about to cancel both of our appointments. Than she said she would be willing to see both my wife and I in the remaining 53 minutes but the Dr than proceed on purpose used up a total of 73 minutes on my appointment making it going over 20 minutes so we wife was un able to be seem that day. She said no you were late so i will not take her. than my wife simply asked well you also take an extra 20 minutes longer with my husband than she reply well he needed so you will not be seem. Which if we were not together i dont feel like you do the next patient in line cancel their entire appointment because the Jane took an exta 20 minutes. This interaction cause my wife to go into a panic attack because Jane talked down to her and she started to physically cut her arm in front the doctor Jane but she did do still nothing. The doctor did not care my wife was self harming herself and bleeding in her clinic while going through a panic attack. I thought all doctors has to take a good Samaritan act when they become doctors? Than there was another patient after us she was a woman and white and late to her appointment but the doctor never made an announcement to embarrassed her in front of the store to tell people she was late which leads me to believe me that Jane is also ractist. We are a bi-racial couple and she refuses service to the both of us after being 7 minutes late but than woman afterwards still kept her appointment. The techanincan at the front of the shop had to tell us sorry for Janes behavior the tech said Jane is new and she has a bad attitude and the tech said she also cried from her talking down to her the past too. Jane should not be allowed to care for others when she treats patients and the employees so poorly.

I saw Dr. Sheldon this week at the Champlin Target Optical and he was phenomenal. After some recent experiences with physicians with not the greatest “bedside manner”, Dr. Sheldon really seemed to care about me, even asking about my kids and family and taking notes about it. I worked with Debra to pick out some glasses and sunglasses and she took care of me from start to finish. She is an absolute gem and made me feel like she cared and absolutely loved her job. It was the best customer service that I’ve received all year. Bravo to everyone at this location, you guys want to take care of the folks that walk in your doors and it shows!

I've been waiting on trial contacts for over a month. Each time I call, I get another excuse. I don't know if it is apathy or incompetence, but it is frustrating to say the least. Their motto must be, "over-promise, under-deliver." I have no qualms with the doctors, but the "service" staff is not good at what they do. Seek care elsewhere. Update: Target Optical has gone to great pains to make up for an issue they created. I will give them credit for that. They are supplying me with four months of contacts at no cost. Whereas, I very much appreciate this I personally would rather have good service before the fact rather than credit or free products after the fact. I am undecided regarding continuing to use them for my eye needs. I have been a customer for seven years, and I will need to review my options.

Dr. Sheldon is always efficient and thorough while also answering all my questions. I'm impressed that he remembers specifics of my situation even after a year or more between exams. He's excellent!
