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.

Everything and everyone from reception through initial exams right through to Dr. Z then check out was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. Would definitely recommend. Happy Marzipan Day!

Doctors are great. So is the staff, very courteous. However, the waiting time is absolutely ridiculous. I waited cloae to one hour to get in. The patients' time is obviously of least importance to this business.

After seeing the good reviews and location I tried to book an appointment and the receptionist said they were swamped and booking far out and told me to “Google” other eye doctors. I said I’d still like to make the appointment if possible and she sighed and put me on a long hold, then came back and said it would be over a month and again told me to go somewhere else. I said I’d like to book the next available appointment and she sighed again. I asked if she was refusing to make an appointment and she was like no, I’ll do whatever you want. It was a bit odd, so I guess I’ll go elsewhere?

Everyone was so kind and friendly. They treat you and welcome you as if you were part of their family. They asked, how are you today? Ever thing was done in a timely manner. Could not have asked for better service!

I was seen within minutes of my scheduled appointment. All the staff is friendly and professional and I think Dr. Lang is just the best! I have full faith in his skill and judgement. Always satisfied.
