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 had a wonderful experience! Daniel was extremely helpful and picked out stylish glasses that fit well and looked good on my face. The environment was extremely clean. The glasses were clearly organized and there was a large selection to choose from.

I had a virtual exam with the Dr. She was very thorough and explained everything. Best exam I have ever had. Then Dan Jones helped me with glasses. He knows how to fit you with the best glasses for your face. He is very knowledgeable and was very helpful. A very good experience.

I had a good experience overall. Loved the detailed eye exam and Dr. consultation — thorough, modern, and no dilation! Ross was very helpful in performing all the exam steps for the virtual appointment with the doctor. And Cynthia was a delight to get all the paperwork done for the glasses. An issue arised, though. The frame I chose had a tag price of $99.95, but the invoice listed it at $129.95, which I only noticed at home. When my glasses were ready for pickup, I went to the store (9 days later) and asked about that discrepancy. I was told that this happens a lot — when prices go up, suppliers do not send updated price tags, so old tags stay on the frames. And the frame I chose still had the old $99.95 tag! This is false advertisement, plain and simple! I understand that the store personnel is not at fault at all here. But the management needs to do something about it. And to motivate them, I requested a refund to match the advertised price. Mary Beth and Ross were helpful and understanding of this situation and they issued the requested refund. Overall, a very positive experience!

I was fortunate to get a last minute appointment! Daniel helped me pick out 3 pairs of glasses that are all stylish and functional! I appreciate his sincerity and commitment to helping me find my perfect style!. Also I am very happy with them and can see great. The Dr. Who performed the exam took time to show me my eye films and did a great job on helping me with a good prescription. I Recommend Vision Works -ask for Daniel!
