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.

Dayton Optometric meets all my expectations and more. The office is attractive, clean, and has a calm but friendly feel to it. This is matched by doctors and staff who make you feel like a friend or family. It is COVID safe without being intrusive. They are on time and efficient and at the same time take as much time as you feel you need to answer your questions or concerns. The selection of lenses and frames was excellent. The glasses that I received are exactly what I hoped for. They accepted my Vision insurance and my final bill was significantly less than I have paid for many years. After 65+ years of getting glasses I would rate DOC as by far and away the best I have ever experienced!

Wonderful. Dr. Heath recognized a serious problem and recommended us to a specialist. We were able to start my husband’s treatment and saved us from a more serious problem later on. Thank goodness for him. We are recommending him to my one who asks.

Dr. Marc Gilbert is a great optometrist. I’ve never seen so well and I’ve been wearing glasses for over 60 years. He’s professional, but has a great sense of humor. His office staff are super friendly and so helpful. Highly recommend!

Dr. Gilbert is an amazing doctor! He’s so patient and laid back. All of the staff is very friendly and on top of their game. Finding a pair of frames is A nightmare for me. But they understand and take their time with me. No rushing you out the door or giving up on you. I highly recommend this office :) I’m very grateful!
