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 just had my lenses remade at Eyes Unique for a fraction of the cost than at Lens Crafters. I had been quoted about $250 at Lens Crafters at Warwick Mall, but Jim at Eyes Unique made and installed my lenses for $69. The service was great and it couldn't have been easier. I'll never go to one of those big box opticians again. I guess the extra money at Lens Crafters goes for the beautiful store at the mall. Eyes Unique looks a little worn by comparison, but I'll keep coming back.

I came in just wanting to buy glasses, not knowing I’d need an appointment first. They were all booked up for weeks but then one employee remembered there’d been a last minute cancellation and they were happy to accommodate me. If I couldn’t have been seen then I would have understood but I’m super grateful to the friendly staff for my visit, from beginning to end. I’ll be back to buy sunglasses soon.

Already referred two family members here! So clean, friendly, helpful, modern equipment, and they have an INCREDIBLE selection of glasses to choose from. Dr. Hanson took the time to listen to me. Heather was so great helping me choose my frames and walking me through the process. I highly recommend! :)

Absolutely love Eyes on Lincoln and Eyes on Cranston. They were able to get me in for my annual exam in Lincoln right away and they were able to accommodate my pick up in Cranston. Monique was exceptional at pick up, she’s very friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you
