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.

Love, love, love Dr. Russell. Jess was super awesome when helping me choose frames! Jess is my fav! If you wear glasses or contacts you should buy them here! The glasses selection is amazing and even better the staff is so friendly and kind.

When I was about to cancel my appointment due to fear of being out of network. They reassured me I was in network, and I continued with my appointment. I later received a large bill (close to $500) and a $200 allergy eye drop prescription. When I called to question the bill, they told me to call my insurance company. They were not apologetic and did not take any accountability for the misinformation given to me. They later charged me $35 to send (fax) my records to an in-network eye clinic. This clinic is not trustworthy. I recommend the Albany Eye Clinic.

Awesome team. They work wonderfully together. The care was great and the appointment went smoothly. I was nervous and the team made sure to help me stay calm and take those fears away! I got some great glasses and contacts too! Definitely will be continuing care through them.

I have been going to the Albany/Melrose eye clinic for forever! I finally found a place who got my prescription right! Thank you! Dr. Russell was fabulous! This was my 5 star post until they told me I can pick up my glasses today so I go in to pick up my glasses (not to mention driving 30 mins one way ) and they tell me insurance has not responded so in order to take my glasses I have to pay $558.00 when at my very first visit the lady called My insurance company told me what they cover and got my credit card on file so that I can pick up my glasses before insurance pays for them and whatever insurance doesn't pay for I have to pay which is why they had my card on file... poor poor communication skills on the staffs part! very disappointed
