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.

Staff can be unprofessional at times. However, the guy that helps with purchase of lens is always professional, in person and over the phone. My biggest concern that I voiced just 2 days ago is with the Dr and staff turn over. It's very high. My family and I have seen numerous Dr's in the past 3 yrs since switching to fairway. Not sure how much longer we'll be going there.

I love this office! My son and I both have had nothing but great care and great service from all the staff. They are so kind and helpful. I love that they will take time to explain what each machine will do when a child asks.

I've had to wear glasses for decades and some places are just better than others. Fairway tops my list. My new lenses are very precise and I can see so much better now! The entire staff is great. I had an excellent experience all the way through. Jon knows his stuff, especially when it comes to selecting frames to fit a face. Thanks Fairway!

I had to switch eye doctors after 15 years! Ugh I hate change anyways...the minute that I walked in I was greeted with a smile from the front desk. I literally had time to sit down and put my cards back in my wallet, so I didn’t have to wait at all. The office is on the smaller side so even waiting for the doctor to come in wasn’t a long wait at all. The doctor was kind and definitely felt like she cared about me and what was best for my eyes. Will definitely be recommending to my family and friends.

I called to schedule an appointment. I spoke with Nina who was extremely rude. I asked for my husband, myself and 2 children to be scheduled on the same day, which is what we did last year. She told me that this would be impossible! I told her we did this last year! I finally asked to speak with someone else. Considering loved one's illnesses and all that my family has gone through recently, I just didn't have the patience to deal with her attitude. I finally spoke with Victoria, who was extremely nice, and she scheduled exactly what I needed. It's really sad that paying customers have to receive this type of treatment. Even though Victoria was nice, she never apologized for the poor service I received. I sure hope you all do better, at some point.
