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.

This was my first visit to Crystal Vision Clinic and I was impressed with the service. I was there for a vision exam provided by Emily Boss, OD. Emily was friendly and professional in explaining the conditions of my eyes. The staff at Crystal Vision Clinic helped me pick out the perfect prescription sunglasses from the hundreds of frames they offer. They reviewed my Vision Coverage and helped me select the options that were important to me. You will not be disappointed if you go to their clinic. It's first class all the way.

If I could give zero stars I would. This store provides HORRIBLE service. I got turned away my first appointment because staff couldn't pull up my insurance and therefore had to reschedule. I came in for my second appointment and was almost turned away again because they didn't have my insurance. I asked them why they didn't call me before my second appointment a day before if they were having trouble getting my insurance. It ended up being they needed my employer name to pull up my insurance. Ended up proceeding with the eye exam on my second appointment and the gentlemen (Aden I believe it was his name) that was doing my exam was incompetent and unprofessional. Wouldn't answer my questions nor provided clear instructions. Then proceed to wait for over an hour to speak with the eye doctor since it was done over camera call. Took over a month for me to pick up my order because when I called they would say it wasn't in. They had my order the whole time and couldn't find it until I went in person. When I went to pick them up they were straight up rude to me because I was being persistent that my order was here since my notification email said it has arrived. Overall this place needs their staff trained again and front desk Mike really needs to be reverent. I get better service at a McDonalds compared to this place.

Called and made a appointment saying I needed a full dialated eye exam. Never got an email with the paperwork they said they would send me. Told them the same thing about what exam i needed when I arrived. After starting the eye exam I was told they don't do eye dialiation exams here, making this appointment a waste of time and money. I didn't expect the staff to work on commission, but after being tricked into coming in then having glasses pushed at me from the moment I walked in I'm not sure.
