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.

Jesse, the manager, was great; she took care of us after we told her about an unpleasant experience we had with another employee. She spoke with them and their tone changed with us after that. She followed up with us, explained the benefits in detail, and was super friendly and accommodating the whole time. Excellent customer service. I'll be asking for her the next time we visit. The other associates were friendly overall. On the other hand, Dr. Han, who performed the exam was not very friendly nor was she mean- just blah. She didn't make eye contact as she asked standard questions, performed the exam, and that was it- no conversation about my vision or anything.

Haven’t had an eye exam in a while and glad i chose this location! The doctors and and staff were super friendly and attentive. The location was in a very nice plaza and was clean. My sales person was Renzo and he was very sweet and helped me pick the perfect glasses! An amazing addition to the staff, can’t wait to pick up my glasses.

Carla, an employee of Warby Parker at GSP is absolutely fabulous. She is efficient, fully informed, and super detailed oriented and extremely thorough. Her type A character traits ensured a perfect eye glass buying experience. She really goes above and beyond and Warby Parker is lucky to have her!

First time visiting here. I did my eye exam which gave me my contacts for a discount. Absolutely would recommend. The doctor was so helpful on 09/28/2022. Rey helped me pick out my prescription eye glasses which I knew what styles I liked from the home try on process. He was very helpful and I would recommend anyone looking for a cost effective eye exam and designer frames for cheap. Ordered glasses and contacts which should be coming in the mail in 7 days or so. Great experience.

Dr. Chang is THE BEST eye doctor I've ever been to! She legitimately cares about her patients. I've switch eye doctors at least 20 times before visiting Dr. Chang about 1.5 years ago. I ran out of contacts and had to leave on a last minute trip and Dr. Chang responded very quickly to my voicemail and got me a few contacts for my trip. This happened TWICE! SHE IS THE BEST! GO TO HER!
