It is impossible to give universal advice on choosing the perfect frames and lenses. But there is one golden rule: when choosing frames you should consider not only their appearance but also discuss the following questions with a specialist (optometrist): Where and how, mostly, are you going to use your glasses? What are your habits? Do you plan to wear your glasses while playing sports, for example? Eyeglass lenses have different optical powers, which are expressed in dioptres. The optical power is determined by fitting glasses. Size of the frame - the larger the frame the more aberration (distortion) may be at the edges of the lens.

What frame fits on the lens?

Metal and plastic frames are equally suitable. In particular, active activities such as riding a motorcycle, running or playing ball require curved frames to protect the eyes from wind, insects, debris, etc.

How do you know if eyeglass lenses aren't right?

You can tell if lenses are not suitable by certain signs. It is important to understand that there is an adjustment period for any optics. Symptoms of improperly fitting glasses are as follows: headache; dizziness; a feeling of sand, increased tearfulness of the eyes; high fatigue of the organs of vision.

Why do my eyes hurt when wearing new glasses?

Eye muscles learn to compensate for changing visual demands. Because these muscles and focusing systems suddenly have to work differently, you may develop headaches, dizziness, or just a feeling that something is wrong with your eyes. (This also applies to contact lenses).

Which glass or plastic eyeglass lenses are better?

Glass makes it difficult to make a progressive or aspherical lens. Also, glass lenses do not fit rimless frames. Plastic lenses are twice as light as glass lenses, so glasses with them are more comfortable to wear for a long time, and plastic lenses are much less traumatic than glass lenses. Firstly, plastic itself is more resistant to breakage, and secondly, its splinters are not as sharp and dangerous.

Which lenses for glasses are more expensive?

The thinner and stronger the lenses, the more expensive they are. Lenses made of photochromic, polarizing or sunglasses are more expensive than colorless (clear) lenses. Lenses can be stock or prescription lenses. Stock lenses are cheaper - they are ready-made, in stock, and can be quickly fitted to eyeglasses.

Doctor provided good service. Staff was pleasant. Biggest gripe was their lack of communication or explanation about insurance and recommended treatment. They advised us our insurance was accepted, but did not advise us that the services the doctor recommended were not covered by our insurance. Billed us for more than $600 which would have been covered if we went to an ophthalmologist instead of Nostalgic. That and other service issues drove us away from a doctor we actually liked at first.

I dropped off a pair of frames just to have the lenses changed after getting my eye exam. I was told it would be done in about 2 days no longer than a week. I have now been waiting a month and still no glasses. Nobody called me to tell me anything I finally called and was told my lens was on back order they should have it by the end of the week. I told them to put my old lenses back in and return my deposit. They argued with me and then told me to hold on, I was on hold for 10 minutes. I finally hung up. I would not recommend this place at all!

I’ve been calling for 3 weeks trying to get my contacts prescription filled after having an eye exam and getting a “trial pair” of contacts I’m very disappointed, not only did no one reach out to me but after calling today the receptionist informed me that I’m unable to get my contacts ordered threw my insurance (which was approved and they have a photo copy of my card from my eye exam visit)the receptionist was very rude and hung up on me TWICE to avoid the questions I was asking. This is very unprofessional. Wouldn’t recommend and they never emailed me my contact prescription after asking for it to take to another practice. Oh and I had a referral order to come here from my insurance!
