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.

The staff has become very lazy and unprofessional. They are very inconsiderate of your time. I wait a month for an appointment and when it did come they told me I had to reschedule because no one had sent my prescription out to receive my contacts on time they have yet to call me back and that was almost a month ago

Parkway Eye Care Center led by Dr. K. Brown has been my eye doctor since 2006. Both Care center (Union and Orange) have very friendly and welcoming staffs top with clean environment. Dr. Brown is always very detailing in explaining your condition and offer the best possible solutions to them. That is why I have with the center up to now.

The old lady with the accent and grown out gray roots tried telling me that she wasn’t going to give me my prescription unless I buy her overpriced contacts. Last time I checked, it’s illegal for a saleswoman to withhold a prescription that a doctor prescribes to his patient. She called me “crazy” when I told her to give me back my money, as I can purchase contact lenses for cheaper online (which is what I’ve been doing for years). It’s not 2008 anymore lady. She’s an intolerable, ignorant, rude, menopausal woman. I recommend the doctor tho, he was nice.
