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.

Dr. P is the best! I've been seeing him for over 15 years I think. He's very funny and makes you very comfortable. He also tells you what he's going to do before he does it and doesn't get mad when I blink too much! I went to another eye Dr when my insurance changed and it was the worst experience. So now I only go to Dr. P. And Janice is the best too! She's so friendly and smart. She knows the answer to my questions before I ask! I can't imagine going to another dr!

My elderly parents went to Springfield Opticians because a lens popped out of my dad’s glasses. The gentleman there immediately fixed the glasses and did not charge them. Life has been hard for my parents over the last year so it made them so happy to be treated with such kindness. Thank you Springfield Opticians!

Hands down the best Opticians in the tri-state area. Dr. Tom genuinely cares for his patients, and his wife Janice makes you feel right at home. The whole staff are incredibly friendly, and willingly to work around your schedule. If you are on the fence about choosing a new Optician then look no further!

Impolite and incompetent staff. I can’t believe the mistreatment I endured today. First, the receptionist incorrectly looked up my insurance and then got an attitude when I corrected her. She and the male receptionist then preceded to talk about me as if I wasn’t even there with ears that work. My daughter had previously picked out a pair of frames that I was unable to find on the shelf. Luckily, I was able to find the frame on Rayban’s website. When I presented the item number and description to the receptionist, she responded, “Are you sure you can afford it? It’ll cost more than what it says on Rayban’s website.” This isn’t my first time buying glasses. Who does she thinks she is to question my ability to pay for something? This isn’t the first time we’ve been mistreated here. On a previous occasion the receptionists also treated my wife poorly. They insinuated that she couldn’t speak English. My wife is an English speaking American biracial woman who just happened to be wearing her natural curls that day. Curly hair and sun kissed skin equates to not being able to speak English? Disgusting. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Took my 83 mother-in-law for a second opinion on her eye exam to Springfield Opticians at the Springfield office and I can not say enough wonderful things about how kind and patient Dr. P & all the staff were with us both. I have been seeing Dr. P for 25 plus years and this experience more than reaffirmed that Springfield Opticians not only helps you with your eye health but care for you as a whole person.
