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.

Just called to get information and was greeted by the most amazing service. My colleagues here at work are raving about how great the service is and I believe them. Will be visiting today and if all goes well, we will be switching to Precision Vision permanently!

No Christmas holiday compassion at all! We been taking our daughter to this place at least 2 years, we've brought several pairs of glasses and shades to match ridiculous prices and amounts of money dropped on each because we're new to eye glasses. We had an appointment this morning we got there 3 minutes late due to unaccounted for road construction and even called them to tell them we were running late a few minutes. 3 minutes late was all we'd been waiting for months to see the eye doctor but a no go compassion, no care they only wanted our money. There was one car in the parking lot when we arrived to the office. The doctors do not care about the patient, we were told to reschedule a week and half later date well that's not going to happen. I will be finding another eye doctor for my family one that cares and will understand being 3 minutes late. And to think I was going to make me an appointment and give them more money, thank you for helping me figure that out and thanks for the Christmas holiday compassion you did not show.

The doctors and the staff are always knowledgeable as well as kind, courteous and are more than willing to assist you any way they can. I would highly recommend Martin Eye Associates for everyone and their families!

I came to this practice because the one I have used for years couldn’t fit me in for a ridiculous 3 months, so I switched. Boy am I glad I did! Great service, reasonable prices, and really nice staff. Definitely recommend.

Dr Martin & his staff are courteous, efficient, & professional. I didn't wait even 5 minutes before my exam began, and I had my glasses frames adjusted while I watched a video related to my procedure today, saving time.
