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’ve been seeing Dr. Mentessi for over ten years and now both my daughters join me in seeing her for our vision needs. She has always been thorough, understanding, and patient. She has been there for me in times of urgency as well. I would recommend Dr. Mentessi to any family looking for a great Eye Doctor!

Should of read the reviewers about the horrible customer service this place has. Beware of Sue she is very unprofessional. I had to call my eye insurance company to set Sue straight because she has no clue what she is doing. Then I called to make sure she got all the information correct and after she thought she had hung up she starts talking to another employee about me and made up lies about the whole scenario because she ended up being wrong and the insurance company had to set her straight. I called back and canceled and told Sue I heard her lying to her co worker and I would take my business somewhere that they had professional, educated, classy people working at. BEWARE THIS PLACE IS DISHONEST AND NO CUSTOMER SERVICE ETIQUETTE AT ALL!

Great selection of frames. Excellent customer service. I have been getting my eye exam and glasses for 10 years. Sue B is the best. I have a very petite face, and a very strong prescription. She obtained additional glasses frames from which to select suitable to my face, and loaned me a couple to take home to get my family’s opinion. She was very knowledgeable and helpful.
