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.

Jim and his crew are friendly and professional. His glasses are top notch. I've broken my glasses many times, and Jim has always been able to repair them. I would not go to any other optician in the area.

I would be inclined to give it three stars however my most recent experience left a lot to be desired. I've been going there over a decade and would think someone would verify that after so many years why my appointment was with Dr. Barth instead of Dr. Kolber. Then the wrong contacts were ordered and that took a week to rectify. It's also highly annoying that as soon as you open the door, people are yelling at you asking your name and the reason for your visit. I don't understand why they cannot wait for you to get to the desk first.

Lawrenceville Optician's staff was very kind and professional. When my daughter went to this shop, we were nervous, but staff (she) explained very politely and friendly. My daughter was love her, and my daughter got very cool glasses. My daughter's vision was increase more better. Thank you for your great work!

Christine Maddalena and her team at Lawrenceville Optician are phenomenal. They are kind, responsive, and highly skilled. In addition to providing eye exams and a wide selection of glasses, they are AMAZING with glasses repair. My puppy chewed off the sides of my glasses and Christine was able to cleverly save my glasses by using some spare parts. I ended up saving a lot time and money by not having to get new glasses. I highly recommend the Lawrenceville Optician team.
