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 time at Art of Optiks, and I was absolutely blown away by how amazing it was! Dr. Victoria was incredibly kind and gentle, and made me feel totally at ease. Conor helped me find the frames that best fit my face, and he was outstanding! His professionalism, efficiency, and sense of humor made glasses shopping a fun and enjoyable experience. I couldn’t be happier with Art of Optiks! If I could leave more than 5 stars I would. I will definitely be returning!

Art of Optics has awesome service -- Brenna was very customer focused. While I was getting my eyes checked she pulled several glasses selections for me to try on. Art of Optics has so many great choices to choose from. I love the remodeled location too. The location in Wayzata is always convenient for me. The newly remodeled customer seating area inside makes the space feel twice as big. The technology that Art of Optics uses is very thorough too

Awesome customer service! Clayton was very patient and helpful. He's extremely friendly and offers his honest opinion about what looks and fits best for your face. Will definitely be purchasing all of our sunglasses and glasses through Division Optical.

The front desk staff are top-notch! They are very kind and make you feel welcome and are helpful to get you signed in on their ipad. The updated office is beautiful and I am still impressed by all the state of the art equipment and incredibly knowledgeable doctors who keep a good pulse on my eye health and how to stay ahead of any future issues. There are places that are a bit cheaper and closer to where I live but this place is WORTH every penny and the drive.
