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.

After previously seeing a different doctor there, I saw Dr Plank for the first time. He was so easy to get along with. He was considerate and compassionate, and really made it a great experience for the exam. While picking out glasses, Honey was super helpful, and explained all my options clearly. Best experience in 3 years.

My husband and I both go to this clinic. We have found them to be very professional and friendly customer service. The facility is clean, always answer their phones in person, and generally very little wait time. Highly recommend.

Everyone was professional and friendly. Explained the tests and made me informed on my eye health. Liked that they also offered eye glasses in their office so I didn’t have to go somewhere else to purchase.

I've rarely had to wait as long for service anywhere as I did yesterday in your facility! All told, it took me well over 3 hours to get out of there, having paid over $730 to boot! At this point I don't know if having to wait that long is worth it! Not at all happy with your service.

As usual, the personalized care and attention to detail keeps us coming back year after year. They are kind and when talking to us, we feel like they truly care about our lifestyle and what we do to make sure we get the perfect glasses to meet our needs. We appreciate the honesty of the opticians to say if they feel a pair of glasses that don't really look good and find choices that do. Yes, getting a new pair of glasses isn't cheap but you get what you pay for!
