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.

Mainline Optical had an amazing selection of toddler and youth size glasses. We were really sad to find out our 15 month old daughter needed glasses and Rich at Mainline Optical was fantastic. They have multiple brands, shapes, sizes and colors. They helped us find the right fit and since we chose a frame they had in the store he was able to make the lens in about 15 minutes while we waited. I would highly recommend this shop, especially for babies, toddlers, and youth.

I cannot say enough good things about Main Line Optical. (I can’t believe I never reviewed them before!) Rich, the owner, knows his business! He is so quick to go to the wall and pick a perfect frame for those of us who have a hard time finding the right one. He also is so customer oriented. Rush jobs, not a problem. Special orders, not a problem. He really doesn’t have “no” in his vocabulary. There is so much to choose from in his store, but even so, he will order other colors/sizes so you can try them all. Honestly one of the best stores I have been to. I’ve been going there for many, many years. My kids and my parents all go there too. Lots of friends go there from my recommendation. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Dr. Hall is the best! I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my eye care. I have been seeing him since I was a little girl (I would rather not say my age).

I recently had a bad fall with a serious eye issue (Bright red eye and black and blue). Unlike my lame PCP at Mainline Health (Lankenau), Dr. Hall and his crew made an emergency appointment the next morning to check everything. He did a very thorough exam and advised that everything would be OK...very reassuring that there was no permanent damage. I've been a patient of Dr. Hall for years and have found him to be excellent in all respects. Thorough, informative, and compassionate. I highly recommend him to all. And his staff is extremely pleasant and helpful as well.

I have been taking my autistic youngest here for over 5 years. He’s gone through quite a few pairs of glasses and Rich has been accommodating and generous with his time and patience. I even got my prescription sunglasses here as well. And he’s been equally as generous with me. Highly recommend his store to anyone!
