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 enjoy Dr Brown. She is very friendly and is thorough when it comes to your eye exam. She looks at and considers all options available. I have been going to her for quite a few years now and will continue.

Great place to buy Costa del Mar products...If they don't have it, they can get it for you very quickly! Dr. Laura was the most thorough eye Dr. I have ever had. She was patient, kind, and considerate of my time.

Dale was awesome in helping my daughter and I pick out our frames! I got my first progressive lenses and couldn’t read much from the bottom, so Gary Bowen remade my lenses twice and got them just right! They definitely care about the customer and go above and beyond! A great experience for sure!

Bowen Optical is the best place to go for glasses. Bowen Optical is a welcoming place with walls of glasses. I have never had glasses that are so clear and fit so well that I forget I’m even wearing them. Gary Bowen makes the lenses himself. He also checks to make sure they fit on your face properly and that you are happy with them before you leave the store. Highly recommend Bowen Optical.

Have been a long term customer here for years. Have always had fast dependable service. Everyone is very knowledgeable and always happy to help with everything from insurance to the final fitting and pick up. Just recently took my Mom there and she too was so happy with how helpful everyone is and looks forward to getting her new glasses.
