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.

Stopped in today for a repair of the line that holds the lens in place. Didn’t buy glasses there so wasn’t sure they could or would do it. The woman there didn’t even ask and said give me about 10 minutes. She was done in 5 and didn't charge me a dime! Taking my family of six’s business there from now on. Thank you and sorry I didn’t get your name.

I had a wonderful experience at my visit today with Dr. May at the Garner office! He is very thorough and helpful! The tech was very thorough and helpful as well! The staff was very pleasant! Would recommend this office to others!

Me and my husband have been going to Johnson Optometric for a few years now. the doctors and staff are very professional. The only thing that I can complain about is when the call me to remind me that I have an upcoming appointment they always call my cell phone and I told them to call me on my home number. I rarely use my cell .

Heather is great at taking time to help you pick the perfect glasses to fit your face. She makes your lenses on site and I love my glasses purchased from Family Optical in Fuquay. They are the best I have ever had. She can also order contacts for you. We use Family Optical for all our glasses and contact needs. Highly recommend anyone looking glasses or needing contacts ordered to go see Heather.

I've been a patient at Johnson Optometric for about 10 years now.Just called the Fuquay Varina location to get an appointment for next week.They have been regularly sending me a card in the mail to make an appointment. It's been long overdue. Was told by the receptionist that the next available is in March. March???? That's 6 months away! That's unbelievable!March??There's no way they can be that backed up. But that's okay,if they're that busy ,I will be taking my business elsewhere. There eye care centers all over Wake County. Surely I can get an appointment before March
