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.

Dr Thurber and Ed Thurber have provided excellent service to me over the last 10 years. Their very thorough approach has resulted in what I feel are the best possible results for my contacts and eye glasses. John Tonneson

My first time needing prescription glasses. These ladies were knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant to deal with. I am extremely satisfied with the end product and it cost me half the price of a big-named vision company with better perks! Like a 60 day return policy, free case & lens cleaner, automatic one year warranty.... Awesomeness! :)

Edward and Jeanne were so helpful to me today. I haven't had glasses before and I didn't feel like I was being sold things I don't need. Jeanne really really took her time evaluating my eyes and vision and I felt as though all of my questions got answered. She was very kind in general and fun to talk to especially as this was my first time meeting her. Edward worked hard to make sure I liked the glasses I chose and he also paid close attention to details I would have missed on the frames I was picking out. Their space was immaculately clean and I watched them disinfect things as we went which made me feel safer during this time in the world (covid.) I greatly appreciate their service and will be continue using hooksett family eyecare.

Talia and Katrina were AMAZING with my 3 year old daughter Aria this morning. We needed new sunglasses for her and she insisted we needed to go to the "glasses store" for them. I brought her over to look and both women working said she was free to walk around. They asked her what her favorite color was, let her try on actual glasses frames, and had her try on sunglasses too! Originally I had no intentions of buying sunglasses there and was going to buy the $5 ones in the store, but the women there were so sweet to my daughter and she ended up loving the sunglasses she had on. While ringing up my order Talia gave her a purple glasses case (her favorite color) to keep her new shades save! Thank you ladies so much... you went above and beyond and Ari won't stop talking about her experience!
