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.

Excellent provider. Had to take my husband for emergency case. Had chemical burns in eyes. Dr. Johnson fit us in very quickly, and prescribed medication to heal and protect his eyes. Very professional and courteous.

We had a great experience last week. We needed a quick appointment and they were able to get us in. The desk staff was very friendly. Dr. Johnson explained things well to my teen who was getting her first pair of glasses. When I had a paperwork snafu, the office figured out a way to accommodate me even though it was entirely my fault.

They need to improve their custumer service BIG TIME. Came in to make an appoiment for my 5yr old (she rolled her eyes as I asked questions) so I said maybe shes having a bad day as we all do sometimes (wrong!). Came back for the appointment and same experience she was rude and also the day I picked up the glasses.I DO NOT RECOMMED THIS PLACE

My experience at this location in Spring Lake was absolutely amazing! Tasha is the most humble, caring associate that truly cares and is very considerate of the needs of the customer. She takes her time, no rushing in us making a decision. This was top notch service. Tasha and Rose are a team that goes above and beyond. We recommend this location to anyone. We drive from Cameron and it was worth the druve! Mrs. Deborah Marshall
