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 scam artists here will pocket your money and refuse to give you a receipt if you pay with cash. The employs are not very knowledgeable about glasses as they do not even understand that people need them to see to drive. They will also try to sell you on contacts the whole time you are there

I haven't had insurance for glasses in some years. Kimberly, a very pretty and professional young woman assisted me in my understanding of the coverage of spectacles. She was very knowledgeable in the specifics of my coverage as I required specifics on my lens. Highly recommended and will undoubtedly return.

I purchased eyeglasses from here a few months ago. The ladies there are patient and kind. They really know what they are talking about and take the time to explain your options. You can tell they have a lot of experience and are really caring. They are not like other places where they act like used car sales people or just don't care. These ladies are very warm and welcoming. I like that they made casual conversation to get a feel of what I was looking for...because I honestly wasn't sure. I recommend everyone I know to come see them. It was also nice that I spent a lot less money for better eyeglasses than at the other places I have been before. I also never knew I could get sunglasses in my prescription until the ladies asked me about sun protection. I am REALLY enjoying my stylish prescription, polarized, progressive sunglasses and don't know how I have lived without them all these years. I get so many compliments on both pair of my eyeglasses. They don't"hover" when you just want to browse. But are attentive enough to know when you need help and to point you in the right direction and to make suggestions. Oh, and I also appreciate that the ladies are completely honest with what looks good and what doesn't. I am so glad they opened this new vision center and more glad that these wonderful ladies are the ones working there.
