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.

Tabitha was quick and efficient in all the preliminary testing. Dr Williams was her “pleasant and professional” self as always! She’s the best… hope she always remains in our area. All the ladies in the office are great too. Top notch!

This Particular time I didn't have an appointment. For some reason I was losing my eye sight. They worked me in and discovered the Cataract on my left eye had grown and was affecting my vision. Can you imagine what could have happen if I had continued to drive ?? Personal attention is what you will get here. Missy

My 1st contact consisted of scheduling an appointment for an eye exam. Prior to the appointment I did a physical visit to have someone give me pricing comparisons on using a current pair of Oakley frames plus another new pair versus just buying (2) new frames since they had a 40% off special. Anne said she would help me with that info and asked that I call her from 1:30-2p the next day. I didn't call the next day but the day after because of a family medical situation with an (82) year old mother in my care. Not knowing what the outcome would be with my parent I thought it best to also cancel my eye exam, which I did one day in advance. Even so, I also called and asked to speak with Anne to get the pricing info she had promised. She answered with an insipid tone and attitude saying, "You canceled your appointment didn't you?" I explained that I still needed the pricing info for when I call back and set another appointment. She said, "I'm with a customer and will call you back." I waited about an hour, didn't hear from her and since I needed to run some errands decided to stop by. I told the receptionist that I needed to see Anne and was told to have a seat. I waited (15-20) minutes while watching Anne wait on a current customer without any acknowledgement that I was there. While waiting, the office conversations with patrons centered around who still has goats and providing customer service to a woman with neon pink hair. I'm sure I'm not the only person in the world who has canceled an appointment. Either way, there was no need for the attitude or lack of acknowledgement from this employee. I will take my business elsewhere.
