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.

While the buying experience was great, I got a text that my glasses were ready at 540pm. I got there at 555pm to the door locked when they closed at 6pm. All I got was a dirty look from and old man with glasses inside and he just left me at the door. While this wouldn't normally bother me because he's probably just a grumpy old man, I needed these for a long drive in the morning and it would have been nice to see a bit better and not get a headache. But nonetheless, if you read the reviews there's a lot of complaints about this same person. This is in no reflection for the doctor next door, she's amazing.

I am completely out of contacts. I can only get new ones with an exam. I had to reschedule my appointment 3 times due to cancellations & now cannot get anyone on the phone to order my contacts. The store is “closed for training”. EXTREMELY disappointed.

Always a great experience! Yoli is very professional and knowledgeable. Appointments are accurately scheduled as we were called back to the doctor's office right at our appointment time. The visit went well and we are looking forward to the benefits of the new prescription. May 2020: Very professional & friendly environment! The doctor knows her stuff and so does her staff. The price for the exam, frames and lenses were all reasonable and the customer service was quite impressive. I was very pleased with the COVID-19 screening process as well as the cleaning & sanitation efforts being completed throughout the visit.

I truly can say they care about your eye health. I got a routine check up done and it was my first time there. Well after the check up she gave me a trial pair for contacts and I been wearing them till the ones I ordered gets here. Well it got delayed with shipping - these contacts have been really bothering me a lot so I thought maybe if I call they will let me have another trial pair since I was just there. They were able to tell me that I can pick it up TODAY as soon as possible whenever I can get there before they close. I am so so thankful because I have been in pain and I don't have glasses that fit my prescription yet either! Thank you!
