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 worker there at the front desk and accepting calls is very rude. The two times i have gone she gives an attitude and whenever i call instead of finishing the conversation she just hangs up. I also believe that they didn't give me the right prescription either due to the doctor or the machines. On top of the fact that my prescription has a number wrongly written and poorly corrected with no clear indication of what the number actually is. Tried giving it a couple chances but very poor service!

I called and explained that since getting corrective glasses in June.. My reading glasses weren't working and the girl in the front was very rude saying my exam was for January of next year..now if my vision changes they have to see me. I don't want to play with my vision So she ends up hanging up on me. I call back to speak to a supervisor and she disguised her voice and I hung up a minute later I get a call back from the big girl saying that I was harassing the other girl.. asking for a supervisor is not harassing.. calling me back is harassing abs yelling at me. That was so unpro on her part. All she does when I'm there is being glued to her phone eating ice cream. Hire professionals who care about working with people. Also during free time rather playing with her phone is actually doing something maybe tidings up the shop.

Very disorganized office. The doc is doing 10 million things at a time while doing your eye exams which therefore, does not even give you enough time to read letters. My glasses came out bad. Perhaps wrong prescriptions. I had two more left to pick up which were not ready and were in like 2 months. I eventually had to go to another eye doctor to get another eye exam and new glasses after paying for 3 glasses plus eye exams.
Bobbi Daly | Rating: 5 | Elmora Eye Care
I chose Elmora Eye Care from the reviews I read, and I cant give enough stars for them! I was given an emergency appointment by Dr Sagalow himself when I called, parking was easy, office is clean and neat and receptionists friendly. Dr. Sagalow is a gem, very nice, professional, patient and thorough. After many years of bad experiences with eye Drs, I have finally found my forever Eye Care.
