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.

Ingrid was extremely personable and helpful. She helped me out with my contact lens prescription. Not only that, but she also provided me with a pair to use for two weeks while I wait! That’s great service.

The staff was amazing and seemed to really care about getting me the right prescription. Everyone was super friendly and the doctor took as much time as needed to get me to 20/20. I never felt rushed or pressured to buy any of their products. They were amazing and I will definitely be recommending them to anyone who asks

I went to Pearle Vision n Riverdale NJ because i had a pair of glasses which the lense came out and the frame was bent. The young lady who took care of me was very polite and professional. She explained my options for this pair of glasses and stated she may not be able to repair it but that she would try. After several minutes she handed me back my glasses, which she was able to repair and which I am wearing now as I type this.This was a great experience and I will go to this store any time I need assistance with my eyeglasses.

Just a really bad experience here. Went in and there were three people, one with a customer, the other sitting alone at a desk and another standing at a desk, all ignored me even though two were actively doing nothing. I then went up and asked about my appointment, I was told to have a seat. I saw two other people sitting there even though I had an appointment scheduled in the next 5 mins. I was told it wasn't an issue. Of course the people there were "walk ins" and my appointment time wasn't honored. I decided to leave after 15 minutes because two walk ins were ahead of me and when I mentioned I was leaving I was told "okay" with complete disregard. I will be going somewhere else that respects my time and wants my business.
