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.

The absolute best place ever for glasses and/or contacts. I have been wearing glasses and now contacts for 49 years, since I was a baby, and Hogankamp is without a doubt, the best place for eyewear you will ever find! Super nice family owned and operated business. They are highly knowledgeable, incredibly patient, and just amazing. Couldn't recommend anyplace for anything as much as Hogankamp. Outstanding!

Somebody recommended Hogenkamp Optics to us for my 8 year olds first pair of glasses. We walked in and he immediately shut down. Couldn't make a decision, didn't want glasses etc. Dan immediately came over and walked our 8 year old through the process. He made it fun and really got him excited about getting glasses. He was knowledgeable, professional and so helpful. We couldn't be happier and would recommended this store to anyone needing glasses. Thank You Dan!

I don't leave a lot of reviews but this place is a throw back. You might have to wait a few minutes but it is because they take their time with customers. They repaired an old pair of glasses I had for free when a chain store told me they couldn't be fixed. Customer service is great when most place have none.

I've been trusting Mike with my vision scripts for many years. I won't go anywhere else. My glasses have been right on, and I have several pair. That means I am frequently in for adjustments and he is gracious each time! There are a wide variety of choices. Love the care at Ross Eye Care as well. It's convenient

We drove from Russell PA based on the awesome reviews. My wife and I were "wowed" by how helpful Dan was. We went to buy a pair of Silhouette glasses for myself and ended up buying my wife a pair as well. Skip the "Big" name retailers. This boutique style store will make the glasses superbly compared t others. Make the trip you won't go wrong. We give it 10 stars! THANK YOU
