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.

IfPossible I wouldn't even give it a one star first of all they have no selection they don't have wood frames and as most of the reviews stated they don't accept most insurance I really didn't feel like I was in the best care as far as my eye goes I might the other reviewers said I was talking to getting all this protection for my lenses I was supposed to be scratch resistant I even got the transition lens the transition lens they don't get dark as I would like them I'm always cleaning my lenses every 2 seconds I have a smudge on both pairs I don't know how they got there they won't come off one pair lost the screw it just came apart

I love the vision center in Kearny! Great prices! Great staff! I purchased contacts for the first time, and I didn’t have a clue how to put them on. I asked a team member from the staff named Baihearah who assisted me putting my contact lens in. Let’s just say no more glasses for me! Definitely recommend!

I had my eye exam two weeks ago and ordered glasses that same day. Today I called them to find out if my glasses were ready and they put me on hold for literally 10 min. I decided to hang up and call again, the second time the girl told me my glasses were ready; they never notified me. When I went to pick up my glasses they asked me to sit down and had me there waiting for a very long time. The girl finally comes out from the back and starts helping someone else who had gotten there "after me". I still waited patiently until I heard the lady complaining she got the wrong glasses. I decided to leave even though I wanted the frame adjusted. I was very frustrated with the service.

Doctor is very nice, very good with kids. Front desk needs improvement. Wait time was a little over an hour which was annoying but seems to be the standard for most health practices nowadays. The entire wait, I can hear the girls behind the desk talking about the customers on the phone and complaining about their jobs. Could have overlooked it except for the fact that one of the girls who supposedly helped me to choose another pair of glasses couldn’t be bothered to really help me. She pointed to two walls of glasses, one covered by insurance and the other that was out of pocket. Then she just leaned back against a table waiting for me to choose one. Not really bothering to ask what type of frame or style I was looking for. Instead I had to initiate those questions but even then her attitude seemed like I was irritating her with her quick responses. Were it not for the doctor, I probably would stop coming here. One thing I cannot stand is attitude and rudeness particularly from a health practice. But the sad fact is, I’ve experienced much worse at other practices, so it’s a toss up. Try somewhere new and pray I won’t have the same experience or stay here and at least know what I’m dealing with. This seems to be the new norm.

Unprofessional staff, lied about changing my lenses. Made me come back multiple times lenses don’t fit now frame scratched after heating up and they are discontinued. Very poor service by the 2 employees that attempted to provide service. $1000 for 2 lenses. Disgraceful.
