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.

Great friendly service and a good price! I stopped in Excelsior Eye Care today, may 24th, for a pair of Wayfarers, and wound up finding a perfect replacement for the pair I lost the better part of a year ago—Tortoise shell frames/brown polarized lenses. This pair was cheaper than that pair I bought previously as well. Great shopping experience.

I recently discovered Brevier Optical and couldn't be happier with my decision to give them a try. Dr Rowe and her knowledgeable staff truly go above and beyond to provide their patients with an unparalleled experience. I really appreciate the personal level of service you get from an independent optician. Additionally, they offer a great selection of fashionable frames from some of the top designers and will happily order additional frames from the manufacturers if they don't have what you're looking for in their showroom.

I have a pair of specialty glasses that I use in my dental practice. I needed to have them repaired, and the company they are from told me I needed to purchase a whole new pair (a huge investment). I brought the glasses in to Brevier Optical just to see if they could fix them for me. I had a great experience, incredibly professional service, and they were able to fix them for me within a day. I am so thankful to everyone at Brevier for saving me a lot of hassle and a lot of money. I will definitely return.

I am a fan. Nice job on eye exam, update of prescriptions. Very professional staff overall! They also have great assortment of eye ware that you don’t find elsewhere and very helpful with ideas. Super Service!

Had a problem with the lens failing. I have left several messages over many months and can't get anyone to call me back. Seems like I am stuck at this point and will have to buy another pair of glasses somewhere else.
