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. Goldschmidt was kind enough to squeeze us in to his busy schedule for an emergency. He diagnosed the problem quickly and gave us the appropriate medications and my son was feeling better in no time! The office was so professional and pleasant and on time! Would definitely recommend Dr. Goldschmidt!

Very knowledgeable and kind doctor. The receptionist was very kind and prompt, she squeezed us in a tight schedule when eye emergency happened to my family member and took us in within 1-2 hrs of phone call. There was almost no wait time and the doctor fixed the eye emergency right away. Overall, would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Will tell all my friends and family who live around this place to make this eye doctor their primary.

Went in for a routine eye exam and the doctor was quick and made it very easy. Staff was also nice and confirms your schedule ahead of time. I only wish there is a hygiene station and gloves in the exam room because even though the doctor was courteous enough to wear a mask like I did, he was persistently coughing before and during the exam and touched both my eyelids a few times which made me uncomfortable. Being a clinic, please consider the health of your patients for the safety of everyone.

We just went for my young toddler’s glasses fitting yesterday, and although we do not yet have the glasses, I just wanted to say how impressed I was by our experience at this office. My son has been fitted for glasses twice before at other establishments, and we have never had such an accurate fitting before. At two other shops, I had to convince salespeople that the pairs of glasses they were trying to sell me were more appropriate for kids twice my son’s age, and I still ended up with pairs that he’ll be “growing into” for quite some time. When we arrived at Nutley Eye Care, the doctor had already pulled out several pairs of glasses he thought appropriate for my son’s age before we even arrived for our appointment (great office staff, by the way). He was also very patient with and adept at getting a PD on my wriggling/crying child who had missed his nap time, and hates having people in his face at the best of times. I highly recommend this store for baby glasses fittings.
