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.

This was the best annual eye exam experience I've had. Dr. Rene takes time to explain answers to any questions and the whole office is friendly. I didn't feel like I was being rushed around and pushed back out the door like I have at other places for eye exams. They also made no fuss when I asked for my prescription written out to take home with me. I've been recommending Eye2Eye to all my friends, and looking forward to going back! For only a little more money than places like walmart etc, supporting an independent business, you get a far superior experience!

I was very nervous to find a new eye care practice in Fargo when I left my previous optometrist. Yet when leaving my first appointment at the Eyecare Associates, I felt right at home. The staff is very friendly and I left having all of my questions answered.

Had a great experience at LensCrafters! Brianna helped me out and was very friendly and knowledgeable, she helped me find a good value frame and explained all the coatings and features that could be added without trying to force or trick me into making it more expensive so to speak. I will definitely be going to LensCrafters for my future eyeglass needs.

After going back four times to get my glasses correct, I still could not see out of them. I was also told I could NOT come back a fifth time. So, I left with glasses I could not use. I went to an ophthalmologist and showed her my glasses. She said the “dots” ( for lack of better word) they mark on the glasses were completely in the wrong place. One was way up on one lens and way down to bottom on the other lens. I went back asking for my money back and they refused. Even tho I did everything in the 100 days. My last try to correct this was on day 100. So when I picked up my glasses the fourth time I no longer fell in the 100 day window. I insisted I wanted my money back and was refused! The said they would try a fifth time to get it correct. Basically, I didn’t want to deal with them anymore but will let them try again verses getting nothing. I dread going back in a fifth time to see if things are correct. I would not recommend this place to anyone! Their customer service is AWFUL! I would give zero stars if I could.
