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.

Rude Staff, tried to force us to wear a mask even though everywhere else (even REAL Doctors offices let us in) We were told to wear a mask or leave. SO, We left, and wont be coming back. We the People choose our and PAY for your services, or maybe you forgot that.

My wife and I have been going to Eye Care of the Valley for the last five years (three years in the Pennsburg office, and two years in Emmaus). Every doctor and staff member we have interacted with has been extremely helpful and friendly.

I just wanted to make a few comments on the care that I have received by Dr. Pike. I have been a patient of Dr. Pike for over ten years and have found her care to be professional and personalized. I never had a long waiting time before my appointment nor ever felt rushed. I have found her care to be superb and have recommended her to friends and associates who also have been pleased. Doreen

My brother has some health issues that means he needs a transport for appointments. The arm broke on his glasses and we tried several places before calling Eyecare. Most wouldn't even look at them since we didn't purchase them there. All of the staff at Eyecare were extremely nice and said they would see if they could help us. Stephanie, the optometrist, tried different things and she was able to "macgyver" the glasses. She is amazing! Thank you all for responding to my family's emergency. I'm definitely going back and would recommend them.
