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.

I scheduled a 6 o'clock appointment. Showed up at literally 6:03. The doctor had already left by the time I got there. The staff rudely told me to call ahead if I was going to be late. They also said my appointment was at 5:50, which was not even an available time when I scheduled it (6 was the only available time).

I was very impressed and pleased with the customer service I received at this location. The store associates were all very kind, patient, professional and helpful. I had issues with my new glasses and it took a while to determine the problem. The issue was with my eyes, not the prescription, lenses or frames. Everyone kept working with me. The store manager even helped out and was the one to help identify the problem and provide a solution. They’ve earned my gratitude and future business. (Sept 2021)

I visited Ms. Dani @ Maplewood. She was very professional and personable. I was hesitant about the price but Dani, was able to put my mind at ease & I've transferred my records to this location. Thanks Dani!

I am going to a different America's Best on Watson Rd this year. Last year they did not get the prescription right. I went back in thinking it was not right and they double checked saying it was. I went to Lenscrafters who confirmed it did not match the prescription and went back to the Laclede Station Rd Americas Best location who checked the glasses again and confirmed that Lenscrafters was correct. They then asked if I would like them redone...duh...yes!. I could tell the girl I originally talked to was new and not customer focused. I have dealt with America's Best at other locations and received good service. I am going back to a location that is customer focused. Mistakes can be is how it is handled that makes all the difference.
