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 felt pleasant walking in at Epic Optical. I have hearing disability since birth and the two ladies were helpful to me at the front desk. The place have new technical equipments that I was overwhelmed the stuffs they before I see the Eye Doctor. The frames they have, are good quality products. When I say good quality, I know you won't be disappointed. I had some help with the ladies of how I look with the new frame glasses. I can tell they were honest to me. Hey, I suggest you get your appointment with them or checkout their web site.

Dr. Purman is amazing. First eye doctor visit I’ve ever been to without feeling uncomfortable. She is super knowledgeable and will help you understand what is actually going on with your eyes. Front desk staff was super friendly as well. 10/10.

My son and I have been patients at Ooltewah Vision for several years. If this had been a few years back, I would have given them 5 stars. Dr. Mullins is a very good eye doc, and in the past, they have had great customer service. However as of late, the customer service has really slipped, not sure why. My glasses completely broke, and I called to see if I could get them fixed or get some new frames. No one would pick up the phone, and if I left a message, no one called back. It's been 5 days, and I have left multiple messages, with no result. Out of desperation, I went to Pearle Vision in Cleveland, and they fixed my glasses with a temporary fix, but when they called to get the prescription from OV to make new frames, OV sent the prescription to Pearle as a BLANK PAGE. Not sure if that was deliberate or not? Pearle tried to call some more to get a prescription, and so did I, but still no one picks up or returns calls. Dr. Mullins, bad office help can ruin a doctor's office!

Received great service, I called and booked an appointment and it was so fast and easy thanks to whitely! Mary did a great job between gathering my information and checking me in. The doctor made me feel so comfortable and was so sweet!

Awful. Over 3 months and still haven't gotten my glasses. They are rude and will not return calls. Go to the door and ring. No response. Paid for the glasses and insurance paid part and no glasses. No response as to why I didn't get them or when they might come in. I'm having to go somewhere else. Having a hard time at work with no glasses. Apparently they don't care.
