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.

They took such great care of my son! We were able to get a next day appointment which is amazing with our busy schedules! The process was quick and painless and my son absolutely loves his new glasses! Thanks so much to the staff at Resident Eye Care Associates! We will definitely be back next year!

I had a horrible experience at this facility as I went there for an child’s eye exam. Few minutes before the appointment time, I got a text asking me to inform them as soon as I arrive (due to COVID) which I did promptly on my arrival. Inspite of submitting all the paperwork in advance, I was firstly made to wait in the parking lot for an hour in freezing cold with my son as the office tried to verify my insurance coverage at the last minute. I begged them to let us come in as they do the verification since they have an outside hallway where I can wait which was completely empty! After much begging I was told to come in but no office staff member told me the verification status for another 30 minutes! Then I was informed that I need to call my insurance to verify my coverage as they are not suppose the call the number on back of my insurance card(!) which I did as I wanted my son to get his eye exam. I then told my insurance to call Resident eye care office to confirm my coverage which my insurance did promptly. Finally I was told that I need to pay for the eye exam upfront as they don’t submit claims directly to insurance! Their exam price was way too off the roof which was outside my budget. I politely asked them to cancel my appointment as I need to look for a more reasonable place for my child’s eye exam. Worst part, when I reached home, they send me text with an invoice to pay for the office visit! I would not recommend this place as the office staff lacks empathy towards their patience and don’t do their verification upfront to avoid last minute stress and inconvenience to their patients.

I hadn't gotten my eyes checked in a while but since I had the insurance figured I would try to use it before my benefits ran out. This place was so accommodating and gave me an appointment in a day! Lucy and Dr.Kraus gave me a great exam experience and explained everything to me. Then Sabrina helped me find amazing frames and went through all the elements of my benefits that I didnt even know I had! I'm glad I found an office that values my time while still giving a thorough experience. The staff is amazing and I was in & out before I knew it with glasses that feel like they weren't even there to begin with. No better place to get your eyes checked!

Just brought my son in for an eye exam and it was such an easy process. They emailed me the paperwork in advance and were able to tell me the benefits as soon as I checked in. The optician David was wonderful in helping to select a pair of glasses that was covered by our insurance and my son has happy with. He even squeezed me in for a sunglass appointment. I will definitely be returning with my other kids!

Staff is incredibly rude. Demand payment before you can enter the office. Lie about how long the wait will be. Make you fill out all the paperwork ahead of time but then make you wait for a long time. I have been going here for years because I like the doctor. He needs new staff.
