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.

Aldridge Eye Associates is the BEST! They have been providing phenomenal eye care for me for the past three decades. I’ve always had a great experience there and have referred multiple happy patients!

As a new patient, I was impressed with the beautiful office and friendliness of all the staff. Martha carefully explained each procedure, and Dr. Moore was thorough and made sure any questions I had were answered. I look forward to a long relationship with Aldridge Eye Institute!

I've been a patient of Aldridge Eye Institute for many years now. I've stayed because the staff is professional (yet friendly, attentive AND fun). My overall experience is ALWAYS positive. Can't say that about just everywhere, but I can for Aldridge!

This was my first time at Aldridge Eye. Before I saw the doctor my vision and my eyes themselves were tested in numerous ways. It felt extremely thorough. The Dr who examined me was interested in me as a person and as an Optometric patient. She also was very thorough and she performed a top to bottom exam of my eyes. I felt very confident in the results of my exam. The optician was equally kind and attentive. She carefully and thoughtfully assisted me in choosing eyeglass frames. As for the lenses, there was no pressure to buy the highest cost, like I have experienced at other places. She listened and developed a lens choice that fit my needs. This was an excellent experience and I highly recommend them.

I brought my teenage son there and we were seen right away. The tech and Dr.Smith were very helpful and Dr. Smith was able to make a diagnosis quickly. It's a one stop shop so we went ahead and ordered glasses there as well.
