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.

I just called to make an appointment and I was rudely greeted by the manager named Kevin. I was unsure of some of my insurance information and ask for a moment to gather it. Upon doing so I was greeted with his rude tone as well as him rushing me for information. He also took it upon himself to take several deep breaths and sound very annoyed with me for not being prepared. I then called to speak to management and he said it was himself. I expressed to him that I felt disrespected and that he was very rude in which he replied he did not realize. So I politely enlighten him on how rude he had been. He then stated that he was sorry and was there anything else he could do for me? Well of course not except for me to speak to someone above you about the behavior that you exhibited. Is this how you treat service members and their family at this establishment? I was highly disappointed as I only called this establishment due to the high review rating that they had.

Drove from Surf City, NC to try a new optometrist and love! Dr. L. Farabaugh took care of me and was so thorough in her evaluation. I had been going to another Eye Care center in Wilmington who had not been dilating me...turns out my prescription had changed and I had been overcompensating in order to see clearly! I got a new rx so I can finally see! Thank you Dr. Farabaugh!

My wife went in for an eye exam, but they didn't have any glasses frames that she liked. They gave her a prescription, but didn't give her her pupillary distance on the prescription. We called to ask about the measurement, and they told her "you'll have to go somewhere reputable to get that measured." Long story short $150 later my wife still doesn't have glasses, and they pretty much said they aren't reputable.

My most enjoyable visits for my child to an eye doctor (recently changed after moving, I have been taking my daughter every 6ish months for 8 years) Even told us things that her previous opthalmologist never bothered to talk to us about. All the staff is great! I recommend them!

I just left the facility in tears. The staff was incredibly pleasant and I had a great experience until I met the doctor. I explained to him that I struggle to make out things that are far away. When I asked him why something was still blurry, he proceeded to tell me "you don't have a degree" and "you wouldn't understand". I told him I trusted his professional opinion but asked why the letters got clearer but smaller and he again just belittled my intelligence. After maybe THIRD question, he told me he couldn't make me happy; he got up, waked to his desk clerks, told them I was going to see another doctor, and walked into his office. He said nothing else to me. He dismissed me and left. We were in the room for a total of 5 minutes. I asked three questions to help my eyesight, but apparently that was enough for him to walk out and me away. It was the absolute worst experience I've ever had in a professional setting.
