It is impossible to give universal advice on choosing the perfect frames and lenses. But there is one golden rule: when choosing frames you should consider not only their appearance but also discuss the following questions with a specialist (optometrist): Where and how, mostly, are you going to use your glasses? What are your habits? Do you plan to wear your glasses while playing sports, for example? Eyeglass lenses have different optical powers, which are expressed in dioptres. The optical power is determined by fitting glasses. Size of the frame - the larger the frame the more aberration (distortion) may be at the edges of the lens.

What frame fits on the lens?

Metal and plastic frames are equally suitable. In particular, active activities such as riding a motorcycle, running or playing ball require curved frames to protect the eyes from wind, insects, debris, etc.

How do you know if eyeglass lenses aren't right?

You can tell if lenses are not suitable by certain signs. It is important to understand that there is an adjustment period for any optics. Symptoms of improperly fitting glasses are as follows: headache; dizziness; a feeling of sand, increased tearfulness of the eyes; high fatigue of the organs of vision.

Why do my eyes hurt when wearing new glasses?

Eye muscles learn to compensate for changing visual demands. Because these muscles and focusing systems suddenly have to work differently, you may develop headaches, dizziness, or just a feeling that something is wrong with your eyes. (This also applies to contact lenses).

Which glass or plastic eyeglass lenses are better?

Glass makes it difficult to make a progressive or aspherical lens. Also, glass lenses do not fit rimless frames. Plastic lenses are twice as light as glass lenses, so glasses with them are more comfortable to wear for a long time, and plastic lenses are much less traumatic than glass lenses. Firstly, plastic itself is more resistant to breakage, and secondly, its splinters are not as sharp and dangerous.

Which lenses for glasses are more expensive?

The thinner and stronger the lenses, the more expensive they are. Lenses made of photochromic, polarizing or sunglasses are more expensive than colorless (clear) lenses. Lenses can be stock or prescription lenses. Stock lenses are cheaper - they are ready-made, in stock, and can be quickly fitted to eyeglasses.

I went to this place Feb 2013 and had a great experience with them. I first went to their "Eyes on Broadway" location near Bleeker. I didn't trust the saleswoman there - for men, their frame selection was more limited there, and I felt like she was trying to sell me on slightly feminine glasses. She was nice enough, but to me, she was too much of a salesperson. But the "Eyes on the World" located in East Midtown is more laid-back and the saleswoman there (who's a total sweetie, I'm sad I forgot her name) wasn't as pushy, and was more factual rather trying to force my opinion. If you have VSP, Eyes on the World's a great place to go. They understand how VSP works. I won't comment on final prices after insurance - anybody who does in a review is being misleading, because prices will very widely vary based on your specific insurance plan, your taste in frames, your requirements on lens (do you need anti-reflective coating? Some do, some don't), etc, etc. But I thought their prices BEFORE insurance was very reasonable for Midtown Manhattan. The optomotrist there was cool. He has a daughter who hangs around the office. Cute. The older guy there who works behind the counter - he's awesome. There were some questions he didn't have the answer to, but other people pitched in to clarify things. Service was pretty fast. Got my eye exam, picked frames, and they were ready to go two days later.

This workplace has very respectful, intelligent, and hard working ladies. I would recommend this optical, everyone works very sufficiently, and I'm always satisfied. Please give the ladies a raise, very well deserved.

I love this unique eyewear shop in the west village. When I first walked past, I was impressed with the variety but also thought it would be out of my price range. As chance would have it, a few days later, I complimented someone on their frames and they told me that they had purchased them from the owner, Paul. He was a student, Paul had worked with him to get him a good pair of frames within his budget. On my first visit, Paul spent at least an hour helping me find the perfect frame. I wound up buying 3. Since then he is my go to place for glasses. I have insurance with my job, but the truth is that it always comes out to be much less than when I buy my glasses from an independent eyewear place such as this one. I have purchased in total 5 pairs of glasses from him. Paul makes sure that I have the best lenses available. He has been in the business for many years and has the personal connections with other vendors and passes the savings on to his customers.Paul cares about his customers which translates to me wanting to shop at a place with integrity that I trust. Totally a wonderful experience.
