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.

I had an excellent experience today at Test Rite, they were very accommodating and professional. Tony, Diana and specifically Jen, were awesome! They all helped me pick out the best frames for my new glasses! They had so many options so I needed all the help I could get! We had a few laughs and I felt very comfortable. The Dr who gave me my exam was also very sweet and definitely knew what she was talking about! I would recommend this place for sure! I know I’ll be back!

My husband and I saw Dr. Pollack yesterday in Livingston and we’re very happy with the care we received. Our exams were very thorough and all of our questions were answered. Dr. Pollack and the staff were so friendly and helpful and we were very impressed with all aspects of our visit.

I've been to many eye glass places in the past, but Test Rite is by far my favorite, and every experience with them has been phenomenal. They have glasses to fit anyone's style and budget, and not to mention they know there products. Jennifer, Tony, and Diana, are beyond knowledgeable and always a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a vast selection of eyewear and great people to help accomplish that perfect look or need. I wanted to especially thank Jennifer again for helping me on my last visit. She recommended an awesome frame that gave me a more sophisticated look while still complimenting my style and face. She has a great eye for what she does.

Nicole provided our ~2yr old baby with his first pair of glasses and it fits perfectly. She is knowledgeable about the fit, look and feel of glasses as well as being emotionally considerate during the process. We are so happy and lucky for her expertise! We look forward to visiting Nicole for years to come. Thanks Nicole! ❤❤❤
