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.

Choosing glasses is always a dreaded ordeal for me. When I walked into Sauer Opticians and met Josie, I felt comfortable and relieved. She helped me find two perfect pairs of glasses. Josie is one of those rare people who is accommodating, patient, and highly skilled. She knows everything there is to know about eye glasses. I highly recommend Josie of Sauer Opticians. Thank you Josie!

They told us sunglasses will be ready in a week, so we had to wait almost four weeks for sunglasses without any phone call. After we decided to go and check what’s going on the store supposed to be opened at 9:30 a.m. but wasn’t open we waited about 45 minutes. All what they said was so sorry, but at least you supposed to call us and let us know the sunglasses are ready.

My husband and I separately went to Larchmont Vision Care to get our eyes checked and get glasses. Pros: Good optometrist (would give her 4-5 stars). She is efficient and competent. Easy to get appointments including Sat hours. Cons: the store and contents feel a bit dated. Staff's attention to customer service could use some improvements - especially on Saturday(1 star). The store doesn't get packed but when they have more than 2-3 customers, they seem incapable of providing proper customer care. My husband was told his glasses would be ready in 20 min and in fact we ended up waiting for over an hour and then the glasses had a chip in one of the lens (how could they not notice??) so we ended up spending over 2 hours. Had we known, we would have stepped out to get some food in between. There was another customer who was there in the beginning of the visit and then came back to pick up her stuff and saw us and went:"wow, you guys have been here a long time!" no kidding. If you can go there during the day on a weekday which I did for my glasses, service is much better. thus the overall "meh" rating of 3 stars.

Stepping on a glass (and breaking it!) is a tradition at the end of every Jewish wedding ceremony, reminding us of our losses, even in the moment of our greatest joy. If not for Josie at Kurt Sauer Opticians, stepping on and breaking my wife's new glasses the day of our daughter's wedding (and we were just here for the weekend) could have been much less auspicious. With Josie's quick and gracious repair, the experience instead became a metaphor for dealing with life's inevitable challenges and a reminder that we don't ever have to be alone in dealing with them. Thanks again, Josie! Kal
