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.

Will be looking elsewhere. The doctor was good but the assistants don't seem to want to help at all. I called because I lost my last pair of contacts and needed an emergency set because I could not see and was advised that my prescription was expired and I would not be able to get any anywhere without a new prescription. I asked if they would be able get me in to be seen for an emergency set and they said their next appointment isn't until Feb 1st which is 3 weeks away. So not willing to help out at all.

If you are looking for the best vision center this is it! Dr. Vasla was wonderful! I got my appointment scheduled for the next day after I called and there was no wait. She was very professional and kind during my full exam and made recommendations for good contact lens brands. I will definitely be going back!

Everyone was so thorough and professional, from the check-in desk to the lady that did the testing to the lady that did the prescribing ,and so on, even though new to the area was fantastic. She had previously worked for my previous optometrist. And turn me over to Ni ck who is equally professional and got me the information that I needed. Good job by everyone concerned

I schedule my annual eye exam and during the exam I had no issues. The Dr did not carry the contacts I wear so she gave me a trial pair. Within a couple days I called and told them they were not working for me, so the Dr gave me another trial pair. These also did not work for me as it would take at least 30 minutes for my vision to be clear. I called the office and asked for my contact prescription so that I could just order my original contacts and they informed me that they cannot just give me a prescription, the Dr has to specifically state with contacts I want and then give it to me. Then they mentioned they could order my contacts through their office. I went ahead and asked them to order them and she said they would let me know when they came in. Fast forward a month, i still have not received a call so I go into their office. Once I get the office they tell me one of the contacts is back ordered and they do not know when it will come in. I understand these things happened but no one ever called to let me know there would be a delay in getting my contacts. Meanwhile I ask if they have another pair of trials I could try since I would have to wait even longer for the right ones to come in. They look to see what they have and offer a pair and tell me my vision would be “fuzzy” but that is all they could do. I declined the offer and waited for my contacts to come in. All that to say, I am disappointed and will not be returning.
