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.

Really disappointed in this place. I’ve been going there for probably 7 years faithfully but today was my last. I just moved from NY and called about my prescription. Wanted to order come glasses online. I called to ask how I can get my prescription and the lady cut me off half way and said” you can’t ask for the script over the phone you have to come in, goodbye” and tried to hang up. I once again get ahold of her and she says it again. After three times of repeating it I finally get a word in to tell her “I’m now in Florida.. and is there anything I can do?” She says go to a new obstetrician. Now...when I come back to NY in December... I want to see if she still works there. Because I’ve even been sent my contact script via text message from this place. Like I said I went to them for 7 years. Her behavior does not reflect the rest of the sweet girls there but that nasty attitude clerk doesn’t deserve a job dealing with people.

Designer optical is awesome. Maritza is super friendly and knowledgeable. She helped me book an eye exam for my daughter and helped her pick out stylish glasses in a timely manner. Have any optical needs? Ask for Maritza!

I absolutely LOVE coming here! The office is orderly and well managed; the staff is welcoming and courteous in addition to being helpful. They make these visits as effortless as they can be. Ashley helped me find multiple pairs of glasses suited to my face and is definitely my favorite team member!

I've been there 3 times. Each time I went there the service got worse. The last time really irritated me as I chose a pair of glasses for myself and my daughter. As I was letting the lady behind the counter know what I wanted the lenses to include such as transitions, anti-glare, etc. I did not realize that she was placing what I wanted for my glasses on my daughters glasses as well. Unfortunately, I realized it when I got home. I spent the most money I have ever spent on my glasses and my daughters glasses came up to be slightly less expensive than mine. They also try very hard to hide the customer's prescription from them. I guess they are afraid you might go elsewhere and get glasses. I am not going back there as I am sure I can find some place else with better prices for frames and one that is more honest.
