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.

Like a model, my daughter loves to wear her Rebecca Minkoff glasses. Jennifer was super patient while dealing with my picky teen. She guided my daughter through the do and don’t of certain fits for certain faces while explaining nose pads(or lack there of), temples, and colors. My daughter owns several prescription glasses from Jan’s Optical. I am grateful for the expertise and guidance of both Jan and Jennifer.

It was an awesome experience at Jan’s Optical! My mother has so many visual issues and Jennifer Aquino was unbelievably helpful to us! She found an error in the prescription and was able to have it corrected! She is kind and friendly and my mom can see so much better then she has in a really long time! Thank you Jennifer!

Jan’s optical is simply the best! They have been taking care of my parents and now me for almost 25 years. Every time we go, we experience excellent customer service, obtain access to the top brands and frames and then an easy process of selecting and purchasing glasses. Shoutout to the entire crew at Jan’s and I look forward to spending more time and dollars at Jan’s for years and years to come!

I found Jan’s Optical by googling eyeglass businesses near where I work, and very glad I did. Just purchased new eyeglasses from them, and was very pleased with the experience. Jennifer, the optician was great. Extremely attentive and knowledgeable. She was a huge help in selecting a frame and guiding me through the various options. I highly recommend!
