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.

I have been going to Eyesite for about 15 years now. Dr. Verrone has been checking my sight and eye condition and I have full confidence in the care he is giving my eyesight. I work mostly with Terry for picking out glasses and his taste, patience and how well he knows my likes has made choosing stylish eyewear fun and easy! I can't recommend this business highly enough; it is so convenient to have both my eye doctor and fashion director in the same place!

Before going to Eyesite I went to a well known chain (located mostly in malls) and always struggled with my contact lens comfort and my prescription always seemed to change based on which doctor I saw — coming to Eyesite was the best move for me, my prescription is settled (no change for two years!) and the Dr switched me to Dailies which resolved all of my prior issues. I wish I’d come sooner! They were also great about doing the DMV eyesight certification for me. Highly recommend.

My 6 year old had a great experience as a first time eye exam after the school nurse suggested we be seen. The reception staff was friendly and very helpful. Madison, our nurse was so friendly and playful she put my daughter at ease right away and made a point to keep checking in with her and making sure she was comfortable and happy. Doctor Verone was patient and very willing to explain what was going on with my daughter and what the plan is. Terry fit my daughter for glasses and was patient and kind. I was so pleased by how kind and informative everyone was. I left with a happy kiddo and a clear understanding of what was going on with my daughter's eyes.

Highly recommend Eyesite. It was a seamless experience for me. Very efficient, knowledgeable and friendly staff! They even sent my eye exam results to the state in order to renew my drivers license. Overall a wonderful experience!

I just moved to the area and needed to find a new eye doctor. I called them today to see if I could set up an appointment soon and they were able to fit me in in less than an hour! When I arrived, I was impressed by the clean and organized facility. The staff is exceptional - warm and friendly and happy to answer any questions! Dr. Peters was kind, caring, and patient. His knowledge and demeanor immediately put me at ease. I knew I was in good hands! I highly recommend this place! I’m not one to leave reviews. I’ve left maybe one or two others in my life. But I was so impressed by my experience that I had to share!
