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.

Had a great experience getting new glasses there in January. Unfortunately they got damaged and I thought they would need to be replaced so I brought them in and was told to come back in about an hour. Came back and they had the fixed my glasses for NO CHARGE! Excellent customer service. I highly recommend them.

I have been going here on and off( mostly due to insurance) for years. I usually see Dr Fengel who is welcoming and patient. He does answer your questions and concerns while taking his time. Most of the ladies in front a friendly and helpful also. They have evening hours which are very convenient.

Came in just to look at some inventory. Didn't have an idea what I was looking for, but then Leslie arrived to the rescue. She helped me select a pair of sunglasses that I immediately loved and educated me on polarized lenses. Love this place. Thanks Leslie for you help.

I found this provider by logging into my United Health account. It was the first provider that popped up on the list. I called to schedule an appointment and the lady that answered the phone told me that I had to call my insurance company first and I proceeded to tell her that I was logged in to my account and they were the first provider showing on my list. She still insisted that I must call my insurance company before scheduling an appointment. Well I don't have time for that. My insurance company offers my online login access for a reason and that reason is so that I do not have to call them. Perhaps she should have called them as I tried to give her my insurance information. I told her no thank you I will call the next provider on the list and that's exactly what I did. Me and my family will take our business elsewhere.

I should have listened to the other reviews I've seen for this business. I didn't even make it in for an appointment! I found this business through my insurance's list of accepted doctors. I tried to schedule a routine eye exam and I ended up having to send in pictures of my insurance cards because they didn't recognize the provider. The first time I called they asked me to send in the pictures and they would call me right back. I was at work so the first email didn't go through, which I take full responsibility for, and when I called back I resent it. This second time I saw that the email reached them but no one ever tried to call me back. Once I called back a third time the woman I spoke to kept insisting that they didn't accept the insurance because she was confused by the walmart discount card on the back of the insurance card. She just kept repeating that the card said it could only be used at walmart even though it says "Available savings are not insurance. Your insurance information is on the reverse side of this card". When I tried to correct her and explain she started to get irritated and just kept saying that it said at the top of the card it couldn't be used. After the call ended I confirmed with the insurance company that the insurance is accepted at that location. Needless to say I will be taking my business elsewhere.
