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.

Doctor was very good, was greeted nicely, taken care very good, very pleased with the services I received as well as new pair of glasses that were prescribed by the doctor. Frame selection was very nice would recommend for services, never had issues being a new patient to the office.

This place if awfully ridiculous, how does an eye exam take an hour and a half to do? I took my mom to get seen on time and they do not have any time management at all. Very slow working people, you’d think with Covid going around they would take patients in and out. Strong do not recommend unless your okay with waiting for death. If I had zero stars to rate I would have chosen that.

Have been coming here for almost 4 years and have had nothing but positive experiences. Doc is fantastic and the ladies working in the front with scheduling, billing, glasses and contact selection and fitting, etc. are awesome. Betty and Tabitha specifically have helped me when my glasses didn't come out quite right. They were professional, patient and problem solved the issue until it was made right. Everyone has always been so very nice, helpful and down to earth that going to the eye doctor is not the torturous event that it had been in the past. Can't recommend them enough!

I wish I could give them zero stars! Tammy which is the secretary and also the Doctor’s wife is rude. She has been giving me attitude for years and I have dealt with it. The Doctor will also defend and give you attitude when you try and complain about his wife. Don’t ever go here. They’re way better places then this one at Temple Walmart. They don’t care about the patients. I needed an emergency appointment and she was giving me attitude instead of just trying to give me an appointment for her next available spot. Well I called another office and will not be going back to this unprofessional and lack of compassion office for patients. I’m shocked they’ve been able to still be here all these years. Tammy needs prayers because the hate in her heart is just sickening.

EVERY time I go here there is ALWAYS a problem. The first time it took (I don’t know, 2 months to get my glasses) because it was always the “lenses failing”. I can’t tell you how many times they had to be redone. I was given $20 for the difficulty and time it took to get them. I went in on a Saturday to have my expensive lenses put into the frames to be told “the lab is only here Mon-Fri”. I came back AGAIN today to give them my frames for what SHOULD have taken 90 minutes but just received a call stating “of course the lenses moved when the lab went to cut them so you can pick up your frames with your old lenses because we have to order new lenses. I have prisms, I can’t wait months for glasses. The girls are nice but the service is absolutely unacceptable.
