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 going to Premier Eye Care & Eyewear. I had a very pleasant experience. My appointment was right on time. The associates were friendly and helpful. My optometrist was very nice and knowledgeable about my situation. I was able to choose the designer specs

Went here to get new glasses after they were broken at work. Employees were very nice. The optometrist I seen was very personable as well. I'll definitely be going back in a year to get my next eye exam.

Decent pricing and friendly staff. However, I had an appointment to get contacts to replace my glasses. They did the exam and got my prescription, convinced me to get a back up pair of glasses and had to wait 3 weeks for my contacts. Once they arrived they told me I couldn’t get my contacts unless I took some class on how to properly put them in. That would be fine if it wasn’t an hour long class for $89. Everywhere else told me this was a sham to get more money and that it’s up to the optometrist should be able to show you quickly when you pick up your contacts. On principle I’d rather pay another doctor to completely redo the exam and order the contacts even tho it’ll cost me more than the $89. They wouldn’t even give me the prescription so I could just order my own either. They force you into paying for some bogus class to get more money. They were great up until this point.

I had the pleasure of scheduling an appointment with Jackie. I submitted my request online for an appointment and Jackie responded to me within an hour! She got me scheduled for the same week, advised me of COVID precautions and what to bring/complete for my appointment. Megan took me for pre-eval and was very nice and then I got my consult with Dr. Swopes who was just as awesome as her staff. I really appreciated the ladies at this branch and their thoroughness!
