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.

My first visit was today. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. I saw Dr. Smith and I really liked her! I'll definitely be coming here for my future annual check ups! ( I have diabetes) They were also time efficient, which is very important to me. I 100% recommend Gillispie Eye Care! It was an all around great experience!

I use this particular location bc the customer service is beyond amazing! Stephanie and Valerie have gone above and beyond to help me. We take our Unhoused community to this location for eye exams. They make each one feel so welcome, accepted and important. This is why we schedule here. To the manager at this location I thank you for hiring incredible staff

I advise anyone considering to save a dollar pursuing this company for your contacts or glasses go to an actual reputable business. Not only will they give you the wrong prescription and ignore your concerns with follow up they will tell you inaccurate information regarding the contacts you purchased and stick you with a whole year supply of contacts you can’t use with no option to exchange them. Target has a great optical center.

I drive almost an hour to keep seeing Dr. Davis, because she is so thorough, personable and attentive (I'm a patient now of over 10 years). Once when I had an eye injury, Dr. Davis saw me immediately and walked me through a scary and painful situation to recovery. Her office manager (Hope) is also incredibly capable and helpful. Can't recommend her highly enough. (Additionally, parking is directly adjoined to her office, and I've never had an issue finding a spot).
