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.

The doctors and staff are professional and courteous. They have the whole eye examination appointments down to a smooth choreography of each staff member doing their part to move you along from the front desk to the preliminary exam tests to the dr. exam to a technician to choose glasses if necessary then checkout. Very friendly and efficient! Between my husband and me, we have purchased progressive lenses glasses and sunglasses, reading glasses and non-prescription Maui sunglasses. The quality on all of them was great, but I could not get used to the frames on my pair and there was no problem returning them after 60 days and choosing new frames. Great Eye Care Practice and Glasses Shop! Could not recommend more! Sheila G.

I have been with Blackstone valley eye care since I moved to the town and have been very pleased with the service. The quality of care has been exceptional and the level of respect I have received has been excellent. I have bought top of the line frames such as Vera Bradley, Coach, and Tiffany & Co. I am glad to have found them during my search for a eye care practice.

Love this place! I was easily able to schedule an appt for a Saturday morning which is usually a hard ask. Everything is very nice and I was able to get glasses and sunglasses right in the building.
