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.

Appointment process is terrible. Automated system does not allow you to speak with a representative. Scheduled the appointment 3 weeks out and they called the day before to confirm and only then did they say they did not take my insurance

Front desk staff couldn't answer questions regarding insurance; doctor was rude and rushed and changed prescription for lens without explanation. Lens were overpriced compared to 3rd party vendors. The Seekonk location staff were kinder and more accommodating, so I recommend making the trip there.

Do not recommend. Walked in to look at frames. The store was completely empty besides the salespeople chatting. They told me I needed an appointment before I could look at the frames, I asked if I could make an appointment now but they told me “no it had to be scheduled”. However, I was able to check their prices online and they are *significantly higher* than local prices in the area. Do not go here.

Been in three times, for purchase and fitting of glasses. Caroline helped me 2X. Had one lady that seemed to be in a "rush" while having them adjusted. Caroline, on †he other hand, took her time and made the proper adjustments I needed to make the glasses look right. She was amazing! Will always request Caroline if i can for any future issue.

I have been going to the Middletown Vision Works for years and I do not have one single complaint! I actually think very highly of this location and the overall service, customer service, and selection of glasses to choose from are all exceptional. I would highly recommend to those who are looking for professional, consistent and high quality service.
