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.

Ordered and paid for contacts September 1, expected delivery date 9/14/2020. Put 2019 as the year of the prescription and I had to go back and get another copy of it. Held up my order, and now the anticipated delivery date is 10/15/2020.

Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. I had the pleasure of working with Diana and Gina when choosing frames, deciding on lenses, and finalizing everything I wanted/needed. I was treated like family. -Pleasant conversation, knowledgeable on all aspects, and saved quite a bit when taking advantage of their current promotions. HIGHLY recommended and I will surely be a returning customer moving forward.

I had called prior to coming in about my current prescription and was told i needed to make sure I came in before the expiration date so I wouldn't have the added expense of another exam....extremely helpful when I wasn't paying attention to the date! I came in the late afternoon/early evening to order boxes of new contacts. All employees were busy helping other customers; however, I was greeted promptly and informed someone would be with me shortly. Thank you for not ignoring me. I was helped by a gentleman named Khal. He looked over all my paperwork, gave me several options for ordering and was very knowledgeable. He also answered several questions that I had about brand (switching to another brand, etc). I very much appreciated that he let me know about the option to have my contacts shipped to my home vs. having to come back into the store. As a busy professional, my time is important to me. The store was very neat, orderly and clean. The employees seemed very courteous to everyone. I also over heard an employee, might be the same gentleman that helped, speaking in Spanish to a customer (important to have bilingual employees). Overall, an errand that good have taken a long time and been frustrating was quick and I walked out very happy. Thank you Rachel M.
