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.

So unprofessional! staff all very friendly/timely in prepping the pt. for the doc. Deidra Casaus however is very unprofessional and unapologetic. She crams he appts and keeps you waiting for at least an hour and a half. It's about the money for her. Today I spoke up about this and she compared the waitingt to urgent care. It wasn't an urgent appt. We will never go back after about 3 yrs of dealing with her.

Last year I went to a chain store for my glasses and contacts. This week, I went to Vision Store. It was a completely different experience. The Staff was very friendly. The appointment took a lot longer, because the doctor did so many different tests that ensure eye health rather than just vision correction. I wanted contacts but of course need backup glasses. I explained that I did not have the budget for both on the day I was there. They had no issue with me just getting the contacts now and coming back later for the glasses. The chain store was very aggressive when I tried to do this. Budget is very important since I do not have vision insurance. Because of all the eye health tests, the Dr. discovered an issue that meant a portion of my exam would be covered by my health insurance. I will be going back to Dr. Casaus next year.
