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 brought my mother to see Dr. Nanji today for dry eye and increasing difficulty reading. From the minute we arrived till the minute we left, the care was outstanding and friendly. The secretary and assistant were very professional and helpful as well. Dr. Nanji was so knowledgeable and helpful to explain my mother’s condition and treatment plan to her in ways she could understand. Dr. Nanji’s compassion was real and heartwarming. Don’t hesitate to go here for all your eye care needs. I can’t recommend it enough!

Awesome experience! Very knowledgeable and the physician had a great “bed side manner” explained everything to me so I knew my options. Best experience I’ve had with an eye care specialist in many years! Highly recommend!

Higher than normal prices and HORRIBLE customer service. Been trying to get them to print up a prescription for a month. They have given me 2 wrong prescriptions due to miscommunication and typos. Can't get them on the phone; gets forwarded to overseas call center who gives them a message and then has them call you back. They dont always call you back. They close earlier than most eye care centers so I have had to leave work early going on 8 times just to get a contact lens prescription. Their prices are higher than anyone around and all you get is a bunch of hassle. TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE.

Everyone is so courteous and considerate. I am older and I appreciate being treated as if I am special. I also feel that I am getting the best eye care! If I have any questions, need help with my I insurance or need adjustments on my glasses I know Primary Eye Care will take good care of me.

If I could give this place zero stars I would. By far the worst optometry I have ever been too. Please don’t be fooled by the 5 star review because they don’t care about the customers. I have been waiting over a month for my contacts and they don’t care. I have called them a few times and still nothing done about it. Rude and wouldn’t even give me MY prescription to outside order my contacts. HORRIBLE JUST HORRIBLE I REALLY HAD HIGH HOPES DUE TO THE 5 star reviews.
