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.

Coming into the place I was nervous, but they were extremely friendly and were willing to take the time to help me find the right pair of glasses. As well they helped me with my car issues. They were also very generous with the pricing and helped me with the cost.

My first time here but definitely not my last. The doctor is very thorough professional. Best eye exam I’ve had. The girls in the front were very helpful and patient with me choosing glasses. I will recommend this place to my friends and family.

The staff and doctor here are so amazing. They have an excellent selection, and the ladies could not have been more accommodating and helpful. In the Covid times we're in now, they appreciated good communication, as such everything was so smooth and seamless. I really value a local place that takes time and care with each customer/patient, where I know I'm not just going to a corporate optometry place and can actually build a good relationship with them. The eye doctor is by far THE BEST, he takes really great care of his patients and explains everything to help you understand how to take better care of yourself. I highly recommend this place for all your optical needs!

It was more than a pleasure to work with the whole team. Starting from greeting the staff, Sophie and Josiana who were tremendous help, all the way to Rodrigo and Janet, owners of the establishment. They were very patient, understanding and extremely helpful! The doctor also did a wonderful job with my eye exam. Prices were phenomenal! The exam itself was very inexpensive and the prices for the glasses, frames and lenses were really great and accessible, not to mention the selection, it was a tough decision to find the right one but all the staff assisted and I couldn't be happier! Thanks everyone at Port Chester Eye Care, you guys are great!

My family and I love to come to S.H Laufer Of Port Chester to get our eyes checked out by Vlad Koyfman, OD. He is the best Optometrist EVER... He took the time out to talk to us about our eye and help us find the best fit for our eyes. When it came to my daughter is was very caring about the comfort of her eyes when it came to contacts. I highly recommended this place to anyone.
