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.

Came to this location with broken glasses held up by paperclip wire and tape. The optometrist rushed me through the exam, got frustrated with me when I couldn't tell which of the lenses were better, and gave me a prescription with measurements that were completely irrelevant to eye care. Please consider shopping elsewhere

I went in to get lenses made for a frame that Walmart stopped supporting. The lenses didn’t fit into the frames properly and had to be remeasured and sent back in. They came back and fit into the frames with some effort and ended up warped. Sent back in again, they came back still warped. 300 dollars down the drain and I’m still stuck with five year old glasses. Shop elsewhere.
