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.

Even during this lockdown they provided excellent service. Wasn’t too sure when I called if they could fix it at this time, but they said they could fix them and they did. Very efficient process too. I dropped them off and by the very next day they said they would mail them to me. Highly recommend them!

This was my first visit, the dr. was very friendly and knowledgeable the staff was very nice and very knowledgeable as well. I will be picking up my glasses soon and continue my review. But overall at this point I'm very satisfied.

I just left this location to have my nose pads replaced on frames I purchased from them approximately 2 years ago and they charge me $8.78...yes they included tax. The tech disposed my old nose pads and replaced them with new ones before informing me it was charge. This item is typically complimentary item from 99% of most carriers regardless if you done business with them before. This place however is the exception to the rule of "the cost of business sometimes in the interest of gaining more business in providing such a service". They want get my business anymore.
