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 would definitely recommend Oakland Vision and Hearing. I recently needed new glasses and came here for the first time and could not be happier with the outcome. I have a high prescription and usually dread getting new glasses, but Mo made the experience so pleasant. He worked with me to find frames I was happy with and he was able to make the lenses extra thin that I’m still shocked with how good they came out! The staff are all very friendly and the office is super clean. I will definitely be back!

Just a few words to praise a business that is run like one should be. Oakland Vision is owned and staffed by folks that actually care for you and you are more than an account number. Being dissatisfied with my previous eye care people and having met the proprietor perhaps a year and a half back in a different venue, I decided to drive a few extra miles for my exam and prescription. Absolutely worth the trip. Friendly, personable and genuine are qualities that simply don't seem to be found, anymore. I highly recommend Oakland Vision and am certain that you will be a client/patient for life, if you try them out.

One of the best! A very professional, clean and friendly environment. Dr.Nikki was amazing, she’s had my eyes checked out in like 15 minutes, quick and easy. Staff was even very helpful to guide me to choose what frames i wanted. Definitely recommend.

Amazing staff... I highly recommend going to Oakland Vision and Hearing. Thorough exam and the Dr took the time to explain everything making me feel very comfortable. When picking out my glasses I was given all the help I needed. I especially appreciated the fact that I was guided to what looked good on me and not to the highest price frames just because. Thank you for making this as easy as it could be. To top it all off I was able to go home with my glasses the same day.

if you’re looking for a thorough exam, wide selection of frames, helpful and attentive staff then look no further. everyone in the office was super friendly from the second i walked in. there was a minimal wait for my exam to be started. Dr nikki’s exam was superb and when a medical condition was found, she went a step further for me to have the testing that was needed the same day. i got both a contact lens and glasses RX, i ended up purchasing a year supply of the contacts which were shipped to my house and received in three days. i didn’t need new glasses at this time but was greeted by mo, in the optical department who was more than willing to help find the right pair when the time is ready. i will most definitely be going here next year for my exam!
