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.

Dr Windley and all the staff are wonderful! Dr Windley took her time with me, and her staff were all pleasant and helpful. The vision center next door was also great; patient and helpful! I'm so glad I went there, it was my first time but it won't be my last!

I’ve been going to this doctor for about 7 years and it’s consistently been a terrible experience. The optometrist is always in a rush and never seems to care about the health of my eyes. I’ve never seen a photo of my eye like I have at other places. I’ve never been dilated here either. A few years back, one of my eyes were in excruciating pain and I told her and nothing was done. She completed my eye exam and just said that the same eye got worse. Nothing else. I’ve shadowed many different optometrists as it is my career interest, and she is never enthusiastic about explaining or being a bridge. The only reason I still come to the Walmart center is because it is more affordable than some of the private optometrists in the area.

I have been to many eye doctors and she is the 2nd eye doctor that has had patience and spent the time needed for my appointment. She didnt rush or try to move quickly to get to whoever was next. I appreciate the docs help and all the staff was very pleasant. I will continue to use their office as my permanent eye Dr. Thanks!

The doctor was in a rush and it took a month for my contacts to come in. After i finally got them they just handed them to me. Every eye doctor I've ever been to had me try them on to see if they were the right fit for my eye's. Not her,what a joke.

I have been waiting a month for my trials. The receptionist lied to me from the beginning. She never offered an apology ay any point or any time I called. She placed me on hold for a long period of time waiting to speak to someone over her. She has zero customer service and really should not be in that position. My trials had to be ordered twice and I am still waiting. No one ever offered to expedite. Very poor ch stomer service. I liked the optometrist but she still offered very resolution to my issue. She offered to give my money back but that would mean I would have to do everything all over again. I am really disappointed and just want My contacts that I have been patient for. Walmart Vision Center only gave explanation but never went out of their way to help rectify.
