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 had a great experience right from scheduling my appointment to actually visiting the place. It’s a very beautiful environment and Dr. Kaur is very pleasant, respectful and knowledgeable. They have varieties of designer glasses to choose from at affordable prices. AJ helped me pick beautiful glasses and then I got the in-house special for my second pair, you should definitely try that too. The turn around time for both my glasses were super fast and am so satisfied for the services rendered. Definitely going back and you should too.

Beside my regular checkups always being pleasant, yesterday I had an eye emergency. Dr. Solis in for Dr. Harmer, went out of her way, calling numerous Retinal specialists to get me in to be seen for an emergency visit. Can’t thank Dr. Solis enough for her time and compassion!

I had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. Harmer's associate--Dr Solis. She was very giving of her time and knowledgeable in every aspect of the procedure which included a full optical exam and treatment of an infected eye. She is kind, patient and answers all questions most gracefully.
