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.

The last 2 times I've been there, the lady who waited on us was very rude. We were to check in for my wife's appointment and she made us feel like we were interrupting something important. I just talked to the same lady on the phone today to schedule my appointment, and she kept cutting me off and wouldnt let me ask a question. I pointed out what she was doing and she said, "I have a line of people." No apology, never asked me what I wanted to ask...just, "I have a line of people." Done with that place.

This place is very nice at first when they're taking your money but when a problem arises they will treat you like garbage. They will not give you your prescription which is lawfully yours. And they will overcharge you on things that you shouldn't be overcharged on. Example my insurance pays for my eye exam for $20 they said I had to go through my health benefits and made me pay $50 when I spoke with my care professional they told me that it was wrong of them to do that. When all three of us were on the phone the manager Rose lied outright to VSP twice. Beware don't go here

The whole place acts uptight and too good to be bothered. The receptionist is one of the worst customer service representatives I have ever spoke with. EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL. As of 10/10/22 Masks are still required even though, currently in Ohio, hospitals are maintaining 'as needed' mask policy. Horrible place. Save yourself the problems and go somewhere else.

As far as the appointment itself went, it wasn’t horrible. The wait time to see the doctor wasn’t very long at all. However, I cannot give them a full five stars. I asked how long it would take my glasses to come in and they told me it would take 7-10 business days and not to come in until they call me. My glasses ETA was 10/05/2021. The fifth came and went and I got no phone call. THREE WEEKS PASS not a couple days. THREE FREAKING WEEKS. I get tired of waiting so I call to find out if they can track them. My glasses had been there since 10/02/2021. They verified that they had the right phone number, and they did. All the lady told me was “well they were checked in on the second but it says they never called so they must have forgotten.” If I had forgotten to do my job people wouldn’t have functioning cars. Maybe next time I’ll just forget to pay them. Absolutely ridiculous, I wouldn't recommend this vision center. Find a better, more productive one.

I went to Walmart to get my glasses ordered. I originally had my vision tested elsewhere and I had a prescription for my glasses. They were very kind, helpful, and didn't try to get me to pay an outrageous price for my glasses and helped direct me towards the ones that I could afford and would nicely fit my face. The glasses aren't the best quality, but that's on me for not wanting to spend more.
