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.

I had my first appointment at Valley Vision in January with Dr. Jason Schaff. My time at the doctor's office was relaxing and enjoyable. I was taken back within ten minutes of arriving. Dr. Schaff listened as I told him about my unique astigmatism and how I wanted to fit into contacts because of my personal occupation. He did just that. To put that cherry on top of a great appointment, Dr. Schaff and a staff member Heidi fixed my glasses that had been broken for months. I would highly recommend Valley Vision Clinic for your next eye appointment.

James Woodmansee was great! Explained a lot about why certain things with my vision are the way they are, why I need certain things for my vision, and was just generally really helpful and knowledgeable. Also a super down-to-earth guy. 10/10

Dr. Julie and staff are amazing to work with and she really takes the time to explain what is going on with your eyes. They have worked around our scheduling conflicts and helped us find a time that worked great with our schedule.

I went to see him when he was at Walmart eye center on 32nd. He was so attentive. I was 6 years old. I saw him when I was possibly 13. I dont remember the year. He explained what my veins in my eye and pictures mean. I saw the same doctor at 17. He was great and over explained how my eyes were doing. I appreciated that. Woodmansee is very personable, if you need a Dr. that cares. Go to him At 21 I visited Noth Dakota Eye Clinic. The Dr didn't talk to me at all and did one test. I felt like he didn't care about my vision.

I went in as a new patient with a somewhat concerning eye issue. I was able to get an appointment within 3 days of when I called and when I was seen I had an excellent experience. Very courteous and polite staff and the Dr. (Julie if I remember correctly) was phenomenal. She explain the possible issues with my eye in great detail. Will definitely be going back in the future.
