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.

While getting 2 pairs of glasses for 79.99 and a free eye exam is pretty good when you don't have insurance. For my 23 years of living and with Glaucoma due to my Port Wine Stain from birth, I was told that it looks like you don't have glaucoma as in it appears you don't have it from the images he seen from the eye exam. Glaucoma doesn't just disappear out of nowhere, and from the way that it looked when I was telling him that I do have it, it seemed like he didn't believe me from the look on his face "because theirs no medical records" for him to go off of. while I do appreciate the free glaucoma clinic for people who don't have insurance, which is really nice, I would go back to school and learn a little more even tho you have that university degree as a optometrist.

Not happy at all they first told me my insurance would cover the exam and the fitting for contacts and that they took my insurance for the contacts themselves. Then after the exam they tell me that I cant get lenses under my insurance and that I woukd have to also pay 45$ fitting fee becuase my insurancd didnt take it. So unprofessional I asked them to make sure it was covered and if not to let me know becuase I know other places will amd they conned me out of my money for the fitting and the contacts. They need more knowledge here.

When I called to make an appointment, the young lady was very welcoming. Once I went in for my eye exam, the energy from everyone else was the same. ( the optometrist wasn’t too friendly, tho). They even assisted me in finding cute (cheaper) frames that fit my face. I can’t wait until my glasses arrive, because I was way past due for an exam.
