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 went to Academy Vision for my first visit and from the minute I walked in everyone was so nice and helpful. Dena was amazing and started my visit off feeling so welcoming. I then saw Dr Brooksbank, who was such an amazing Dr and made me feel so comfortable. All the staff was so awesome and helped me find the perfect pair of glasses! I will definitely be switching my daughter and my husband to come to their office. Just a great experience overall! Thank you

Came today for the first time, and what a great experience! The girls at the front desk were so pleasant. I only remember jess' name but everyone including the doctor was great. I was picking out new glasses and they were fun and very patient with me!

Lets begin with Jess at the front desk. I was greeted warmly. My day already got happier. Another patient walked in after me and Jess greeted him by first name as he entered the building. She spoke on the phone with patients professionally and with a cheerful voice. The doctor answered my questions and was thorough with my exam. Highly recommend this practice!

I had a great experience at Academy Vision. They were very helpful when picking out the right pair of glasses and sunglasses. They made it so simple and brought over all the different styles for you to try on. Most importantly they gave you their honest opinion, instead of trying to sell you any pair. I will definitely be back! Love my glasses and got them so quickly!

Just wanted to give a big thumbs up to Denise, Dina & Jess! Walked into Academy Vision with my script the other day. Was on a mission to find a new place to get my glasses! Those three girls couldn’t help me enough! They were amazing. You felt like family the second you walked into the office. So happy to have found this practice! Cant wait to get the rest of my family in here. Thanks girls!
