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 would like to be contacted by upper management for this office. We were just told to leave and come back tomorrow due to them closing in a half hour. We were just there looking at frames for my 6 year old, we already had a prescription and after the whole minute that we were allowed in the store she had already picked out a pair she liked. I am so disappointed with their customer service and the unprofessional attitude of the staff. Our entire family will no longer be going there.

The staff was rude, long wait times,refused to adjust new glasses-said they don’t do that. Instead took my glasses and bent the arms. Customer service was minus 10. Would not recommend this facility The optometrist was good and competent but did not make up for the lack of customer service

First time using Visionworks and I was pleasantly greeted by Antoine who made me feel very welcomed. The lady who took me back to the doctor was really nice too, she even recommended a beach that I could take my kids to over their summer break. Dr. Chen was very friendly and knowledgeable. Last but not least, when I went to try on glasses, I felt overwhelmed and decided that I would just leave and come back another day. However, Emily offered to help pick some out for me. She definitely was knowledge about what glasses would fit me well, she went the extra mile to help me find a pair that I absolutely loved! I would definitely recommend this location.

I had questions regarding a pair of glasses I had gotten several years ago through Dr Perez. Weeks after my first voice mail I I was contacted by someone from her office who assured me someone would contact me with an answer to my inquiry when they had an answer. As of now, a couple months later, I have not heard from anyone at Dr Perez’s office!

What a great experience. I was greeted immediately and had no wait. Stephanie provided great conversation, gave me the information pertaining to my insurance, and got me back to the doctor. The doctor was pleasant, full of information and advice/guidance. I even received help from both ladies while picking out frames. I was given a range of options based on my preferences and budget and ultimately purchased a very cute pair when I hadn't even committed to purchasing prior to my appointment. I will be returning!
