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 came to Target Optical after getting an eye exam elsewhere. I couldn’t find glasses I liked anywhere. Cole saw me looking at some of the frames while I was shopping at Target & immediately came to my rescue. Cole presented me with several options that they thought would work for me. My only issue is was having so much to choose from! Cole was knowledgeable, professional and extremely friendly without being pushy. I will definitely be returning for a pair of sunglasses and for my families next glasses purchase. Thank you Cole for all of your help you made my experience so effortless!

The Dr was extremely thorough in trying to figure out what’s wrong with my sight given that I have 20/20 vision. She did some digging and was able to get me a diagnosis and a prescription that will hopefully change my life and help me be able to drive again. As I have been experiencing vertigo for over a year. The staff was also extremely helpful in picking up some glasses that suit me.

I needed to be seen quickly for an emerging eye concern. I was seen that day I called within a few hours. I have been so impressed with this office, doctors and staff. I highly recommend Bogey Hills!

I have been going to Bogey Vision for a while. I absolutely love my doctor as he is very kind and knows what’s best for my eyes. The service usually is great, however,, this last visit was super frustrating. I went in for my appointment on time, waited the normal time(about 10-15min for them to come get me, and after the tech did the initial eye tests with the machines we went to the room where the doc was going to do my eye exam. We had to skip on of the machines in the beginning because it was being used so once it opened up, the tech told me to leave my personal items on the chairs and it would be okay in my exam room. I left my belongings and went to machine we missed. In the short few minutes where we were using the machine, another nurse brought another client in the room that I had left my belongings. When we got back to the room and saw the other tech and her patient in there, the nurse said sorry but didn’t leave as they were there after us. I then was told to go back to the waiting room and wait. It was then another 15-20 minute wait for another room to open up. The doctor then saw me and he worked quickly and apologized for the mix up. I think the tech who walked in and took the room from us was wrong, but I get it, miscommunications happen. I just wish they would have considered who had a appointment time first, which was me by 15 min. This office and doctors are usually great, this might have been an off day, but there needs to be a better process and rule of not taking rooms other clients are already in, and if you happen to accidentally go into an already taken room, you leave, not the original patient.

I had an incredible experience about a week ago with a new associate named Cole. I think they were still in training but every step of the way I felt like all my questions were getting answered and I was getting truly cared for as a customer. I feel like most of the time getting eye glasses is such a chore but this felt fun and Cole made it easy, as a shopping experience should be! Congratulations on an awesome hire and I can’t wait to come back for my next pair!
