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 was here last week and I have to say I’m impressed. The office is super big and spacious, along with holding a wide variety of glasses/designer brands. The doctor who saw me was great. LOVED Nolan—he was super friendly and helpful when it came to selecting my new frame. I had a great experience here and can’t wait to return!

I received amazing service as soon as I walked in. Everyone that I came in contact with were very nice and extremely helpful. They have a fantastic selection of designer glasses from Burberry, Prada, Gucci, Versace, Saint Laurent and more. I was able to try a few pairs on, select my frames, supply them with my prescription and had my glasses in less than 4 hours.

Nolan and Dr. JT. Were amazing. It was my first exam and real glasses and they explained everything they were doing and the purpose. Nolan was so patient after about 20 pairs of trying on glasses. He did not rush me and told me what he thought looked good and I am happy with my selection. I would highly recommend them and I’ll be back for another stylish option. Excellent customer service

I thoroughly enjoyed the service and interactions I experienced from the moment I stepped through the door! (Note while out shopping, I had walked in without an appointment for the purpose of seeing what they offered). The property is spacious and very clean. At a glance, I was able to see a lovely array of frames. I was greeted in a friendly and courteous manner (thanks Jahvy). My questions were thoroughly answered. I was further impressed that I could get an examination on the spot. They definitely use newer technology. During the examination, I was treated with both care and respect. The doctor explained the test results in an easy to understand way. I continued through the process of selecting a beautiful frame at an affordable cost (not a mortgage payment rate). I received a well left voicemail to pick up my glasses in less than a week. I tried them on, was very satisfied with the outcome and was on my way out the door in less than 15 minutes. Excellent customer service from beginning to end! Thank you City Ave Eye Care!

I would 100% recommend this location if you want a clean, quick, professional, and overall amazing experience. Everyone from the receptionist to the eye doctor to the individual that helped me select my new beautiful glasses (Jahvy) made my experience nothing less than I perfect. I was in and out in an hour tops. I cannot rave about how much I enjoyed this visit! Best eye exam yet!
