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. Bulbin is always very pleasant and welcoming. I have been seeing her for many years along with my children. They are always accommodating to my schedule and when I had an emergency she squeezed me in to see her.

Dr. Janiga was extremely impolite and lacked proper communication skills. He was very rough and unpleasant while he examined my daughter. I would not advise anyone to bring their children here. He, along with his staff, need to be far better trained.

What a very nice, professional staff Dr. Janiga has. I'm not a patient and not from the area. My lense popped out of my frame and they not only replaced the screw that was lost but gave my glasses a complete go over. They are like brand new now! Excellent, polite staff of young ladies, Thank You again!

Got glasses here the first time and had to return them 3 times due to the lenses popping out constantly. And now they gave me back my glasses after 3rd time and my frame is bent completely. These people do not know what they're doing

I went to get fitted for contacts I am nearsighted and farsighted and the doctor originally told me that they did not make lenses for people with my eye and told me to where glasses to read but context to see far in my opinion he's not professional in any way shape or form he took my insurance information and rround 90dollers or so and told me that multifocal Contacts would be a problem due to the fact that he had no success with them but that doesn't include me on a different person so he did write me a prescription for just distance in contacts I would not refer the doctor to anyone! He spent around 15 minutes with me and the whole purpose for me to go there what's the get Contacts for my vision near and far side! If I could give them zero stars I would!
