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. Eckel has been my eye doctor for several years. Recently I was able to take my son to have his first visit at Dr. Eckel’s new location and I would not trust our children’s vision with anyone else. He explains things to the child before they happen so any anxiety is relieved, he communicates best options to the parents, and his new staff made us feel welcome.

Disappointed. I was hoping this would be my “new eye place” for me and my children. Worked out well last year but have called twice over the past few months and left voicemails ( no one is answering when I call) and need to get in and NO RETURN CALL all summer. Even mentioned on last voice mail please call me, no has gotten back to me and need to get in before end of year. With two kids and me and schedules I can’t wait. I don’t understand since everyone seemed great last year and now they seem not to care at all. Looking elsewhere but sick of looking elsewhere. Unless there is some type of emergency closure ( nothing in their website regarding this) there is no excuse for bad customer service and ignoring your patients after multiple calls!

Ive been waiting on my sons glasses since Sept 2021, so i bought him another pair from the office, they broke after a week & i can NEVER get anyone to answer the phone to inquire about a warrenty. It very fustrating when your trying to get things done. Also, my voice mails are NEVER returned

I am still trying to find the right glasses cause i swear I seem like I'm going blind,but I have nothing but good things to say about this place.Dr. Leighton is so easy to talk to(about things other than my eyes) and the staff is friendly and very professional. (and one of the techs is just too cute!)

I went to the new location and really enjoyed the experience. The staff was very friendly and check-in was a breeze. Didn't have to wait and actually was able to start earlier than the appointment time. Dr. Eckle was very thoughtful and explained everything to me. He gave me options for the glasses I needed and his staff picked out the perfect pair first time. Definitely recommend this practice and will be back next year.
