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.

Outstanding experience! It is always unnerving to go to a new office with having poor vision; however, the staff at this office is professional, courteous, and understanding. Everyone when out of their way to be accommodating and Rebecca took an exceeding amount of time to be certain that I had the best possible prescription for my contact lens, and glasses! Exemplary service! Highly recommend!

Incredibly friendly, knowledgeable staff! Had an eye irritation that my nurse practitioner elsewhere was worried was something more significant than pink eye. Dr. Bailey Petersen and her staff were so quick to squeeze me in last minute and do a more thorough assessment of the issue. They were incredibly nice/professional and I definitely won’t be going anywhere else from here on out!

Dr. Turner is quite possibly the nicest doctor I've ever had the pleasure of meeting with. He was beyond fantastic in dealing with our energetic one year old, extremely reassuring and provided enough information to put our minds at ease. Our family will absolutely be going back to see him. The office staff was amazing too! Thank you Island Eye Care!

I have never written a Google review, but DIEC absolutely deserves the praise. The entire staff has been remarkably kind and capable every time I've gone in there over the last 5 years. Just today, Anne Lauren and Crystal remained at the office for nearly an hour after closing time (on a Friday!) to allow me to pick my way through traffic and grab some eagerly awaited prescription shades. And this isn't the first or second time that the staff there has gone above and beyond. The employees are second to none. The office space is second to none. The location is second to none. As long as they're around, they have a customer in me. Thanks, ya'll!
