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.

Horrible horrible experience. I literally left this place in tears. Staff isn't friendly (except the nice lady who helps you pick out glasses). The doctor didn't give me a choice in getting my eyes dilated and wasn't very personable. Then after the exam was done and my eyes were dilated, I was told my insurance doesn't even cover the exam. My husband called to see why they didn't tell me this prior to the exam and the lady on the phone was very rude and blamed me for not knowing. The doctor never told me his recommendation on glasses only that I need them and I never received the prescription for glasses when I left. If you are thinking about coming here, don't! Worst experience I have ever had with a doctors office.

Dr. Baker is really nice. However, the front off and the scheduler are just rude and snobby like they really just don't wont to deal with you. I've been going there for years now and I decided a couple of weeks ago after trying to set an appointment for me and my son that I wouldn't go back.

I waited less than 5 mins from my appt time to begin my visit, all diagnostic tests were completed quickly, and saw Dr. Baker quickly (no waiting). Dr. Baker and his entire office are a joy to work with.

I had to take my glasses in for repair...I lost one of my lenses due to the screw coming loose. I was fortunate to get an early appointment for an eye exam with Dr. Baker. I am now waiting on my new glasses. Hopefully, they will be here before the week is out. The girls in the office are first rate.

So far the Dr. And staff have been excellent. I had a freak accident and they are going above and beyond to save eye. Even coming to the office on a Sunday when there closed. That showed me that they were concerned about me!
