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.

Always friendly,they get me in for an appt at the time I need and my yearly appt falls at the end of the year when everyone is trying to get in, rarely have to wait for more than a few minutes to be taken back. I've been a patient of Dr W Younger for about 15 years in Spartanburg and Inman and one thing I really appreciate is their consistency.

My sister is a patient of this office and she referred me to them. I was very happy with the service they provided. Everyone was very friendly, helpful, and patient. Most importantly, the service was very quick. Dr. Younger was very thorough! I’m not used to this kind of service. Awesome job everyone!

I broke my new pair of glasses. The lens was from Zeiss. I went to multiple opticians in Spartanburg but they refused to replace right eye lenses. Finally, someone suggested Wilkins and the lady at the counter was fast to address the issue and agreed to replace one side and get it fixed in 3-4 days. Everything was smooth, I was in and out of the store in less than 15 minutes, I had a great experience. Both the lenses of my glasses match perfectly ❤️
