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.

Not happy with wait times. If you make an appointment you shouldn’t have to wait 45-60 minutes past it to see the doctor, especially when they contact you half a dozen times to remind you of the appointment. Have some courtesy, if you’re running behind, call the people who are scheduled to come in later. I would have given less stars but my daughter’s 1st appointment there was no waiting.

Terrible terrible customer service. The girls Doctor there is a horrible doctor with even worse social skills. Very rude and does not care to help out her patients. I had a punctual plug that they installed come partially out 2 days later and they charged me for an emergency visit to fix it and acted like it was my fault. DO NOT GO HERE

Been to many places to places over many years and seen many eye doctors and only two were able to give a prescription and able to make glasses i could see with. This is one of them. The best ever. Only drawback ... hard to get frames to my needed specifications.

Dr. Sheffield and Dr. Scaramuzzi are professional eye doctors with nice personalities. Kelly and Carrie the office assistants have excellent old school customer service skills, helpful in many ways easy to deal with. Today, it is hard to find good customer service employees in any business.
