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. Miller misdiagnosed my eye condition. She then told the specialist she sent me to one thing after having told me another. I know because I was in the specialists room overhearing what she said to him. Doctors need to be honest with their patients. Otherwise there can be no trust, and that is not conducive to good medical care.

I visited Dr. Sherman for a severe case of eye redness and itchiness, which he thoughtfully diagnosed as blepharitis, and took his time in examining my eyes thoroughly and gently. He took his time to understand everything he needed to and explain what was going on as well. Rachel was kind too, and extra brownie points for the ambience of the clinic, was cute like a coffee shop with interesting reading material ☺️

After reading the reviews, I called to make an appointment. My 1st question was if the doctor was taking new patients. The receptionist said yes but Dr. Schwartz is not. I then asked to set up and appointment for Dr. Miller and the receptionist said at this time she's not taking new patients. What in the world? Isn't that how I started the conversation? If you start off bad, it won't end well. Thanks but no thanks!
