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.

This man found glaucoma that NASHUA EYE missed. Sooooooo He is the reason my husdband has not had further degeneration. This is a quality place for you and your family's eye health. Prices are not killer with out insurance. Service whenever I'm there has been fantastic!

Do not take your child here! My child had a Welsch electronic device exam at her doctor's office last year which referred her onto an optical exam as it showed issues. Due to Covid, I couldn't get into any other optical locations for several months, so I chose Walmart. The doctor saw her and told me she had 20/30 vision w a slight astigmatism that would correct itself. He said the Welsch electronic devices were often wrong. It's a year later and her writing/drawing has not improved so I took her for another eye exam elsewhere and the prescription is much worse leading me to believe that his eye exam findings were completely wrong. She was at a very critical developmental age last year. The welsch electronic devices work!

I gave a 4/5 cause I only delt with the Tech's on site. My son and I came in looking for new frames for his lens. Even though the glasses were not purchased there, she took the time to help my son. During their war zone of remodeling their store, she was able to serve us in a timely manner. You know who you are and thank you for the help!

Every single time l go to get my glasses adjusted at Walmart Vision Center in Milford NH, they screw them up. Their so called "opticians" (many aren't licensed) leave scratches on my lenses and nicks in the frame due to careless handling. Worst of all, one girl actually BURNED (ruined!) the right lens of my brand new glasses when she heated them up to adjust them. I had to leave them there to have the lens replaced. Lucky l still had my old specs to drive home with. More recently, someone burned the same lens AGAIN! I'm so done with this place!

Dr Tao is the worst I have ever been to! He rushed me through the appointment continuously telling me to relax every time I expressed concern that the final lenses were not clear. He told me I would get used to it. I got my glasses which I tried to wear for a week and in the end I had to return them. Dr Tao refused to do anything about the poor exam he gave me, telling me I paid for a service. A service that was not a correct Rx! He refused to listen to anything I had to say. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON HIM! I now have to go somewhere else and pay for another eye exam!
