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.

I had unknowingly gotten metal in my eye at work one day and went to urgent care after several days of pain etc and received a drawn out visual and eye drops, I proceeded to seek a eye exam to get glasses as well and there were no availability’s in the time frame I needed so walked in and received a exam in a timely manner. Dr Juliano I believe asked me about my situation and within -5 seconds she noticed a small piece of metal in my eye. Then without hesitation offered to remove the metal and was very precise about it. And patient with me struggling to keep my eye open. It was immediate relief. I then got the exam done and have a been very pleased with the experience I had, though it was miserable prior. Lesson learned, wear eye protection.

I don’t see any recent reviews so I thought I’d review Dr. Juliano. She is wonderful. I have been going to her for several years. She is really understanding and precise. She is wonderful with my 12 year old daughter. Last year my husband signed us up for eye insurance and I was not able to use her. The doctor I used was horrible and messed up my daughters prescription which I think messed her up in school and seeing the class work. Paid out of pocket to go back to Dr. Juliano and she fixed everything and my daughter could see properly. Also found out that the eyeglasses I thought I ordered for her were incorrect. I also go to Dr. Juliano and will never go elsewhere unless she moves or retires.

I am a local doctor here in greenville. Please, do not consider using them.. They are unprofessional in many ways.. Please don't trust your family eye care to this walmart "doctors office".. I'll sincerely be happy if my error in judgment helps just one person or family!
