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.

We've been taking my daughter there for several years. Always great service and they always remember us. Excellent priced glasses and we have never had an issue with quality. Highly recommend

I just went in today, & the young lady that assisted me(Crystal N. Cuellar); had the most patience plus positive attitude ever. She had her mask on for COVID awareness, but I can swear even with the mask on; you could feel her smile. Such a wonderful experience every time I go there.

Worst experience I’ve had today. I always go here for my kids and my glasses and have never had a problem till today. Ester was very rude since I walked in like she didn’t want to help us. I asked for a manager and she said no so I asked for corporates number but she said I’m not giving it to you. And she kept murmuring under her breath. I’m hoping to reach the manager because the way I was treated is not fair. I came to the Donna center and the difference in their customer service is amazing.

First time I've needed glasses and Crystal Cuellar was very pleasant, kind, and patient with me. She took the time to demonstrate different frames and explained my options for the lenses as well. I'm completely satisfied with their customer service.

Me and my sister bought glasses on the same day. She ordered hers from Costco. Hers were ready in four days, I have been waiting 3 weeks going on 4 weeks. It may be this Walmart but I would not buy glasses here again.
