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 a patient of Dr. Dietterick's for over 30 years. During that time I've recommended him to many friends and family members; all of whom have been very satisfied with the treatment they received. And as a health care professional myself, my recommendations are not made lightly. Whether for eye wear or just a check-up on vision health I don't believe you could find anyone better.

It took over an hour for an exam since you have to wait for two different people to see you after going through all the preliminary tests. Waited 20 minutes for the technician that controls the eye chart via video then when it was time to change settings I had to go find someone to help because she was screaming for someone like a fool. Then had to wait again for a doctor to become available via video for another 15 minutes. After ordering contacts they were to be delivered to my house but showed up in the store. I live 5 hours away but luckily I had to go back to a job nearby which wasn’t supposed to happen. Visionworks has definitely lost a customer and also anyone I can convince.

This place is well managed. People talking about personal issues and how cold it’s outside why customers waiting. We showed up for the appointment 10 before and were allowed to go right in. There was someone waiting who should have been first. We were asked to come back out and wait. While waiting three more customers showed up and were taken back for appointments before us. Who runs a place like this, they show up late to an appointment and we are penalized? Sorry this place isn’t worthy a 1 star. The only reason they got it was for the doctor and exam.

Our daughter attends college nearby. When she broke her eyeglass frames, the optician in our town (in NY) provided new frames at no charge because they were still under warranty. When we were visiting her we went to Pearle Vision and asked if they would take the lenses from the broken pair and put them into the new frames. Without hesitation, and with a smile, they replaced the lenses for us immediately. When we asked how much we owed, they said "no charge." In the future, this will be our daughter's go to for her eyeglasses when she is at school. Thanks again!
