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.

Not only did we get seen in a timely, fashionable manner. The service from the ENTIRE staff was great! They created a caring environment for my 5 year old son to get his eye exam without hesitation. I also got my eye exam and the Dr. was able to create a personalized solution for my eye wear. While choosing frames the staff assisted my son to find a pair of frames he would love wearing! They also helped me choose proper lenses that would be durable! I 1000/10 recommend going here for your next eye exam!

Crossroads Vision care has been my Vision Care provider for over 20 years. Appointments are scheduled so there is minimal waiting to be seen. Each eye exam is a state of the art examination with no detail overlooked. The exam goes well beyond just the Eye Chart Exam. Dr. Blase and his staff spend time reviewing any and all concerns from the patient and checking potential problem. If you haven't been there you need to schedule an appointment. You will be so pleased that you did.

I asked the woman if they were open,, she asked what I wanted.. honestly, this is an eyeglass store...Although I realize they have to have covid precautions in place, I was told "you come in and sit down keep your hands in your lap and and don't touch a thing". No cs skills what so ever. I'll go elsewhere.

Dr was very fast and any concerns I had with my stigma weren't really addressed. Since my last visit I've been wearing the same strength prescription contact lenses in both eyes and now my right eye (the one with the stigma) has lost some far off and close up vision, with and without wearing the contacts. Avoid this clinic.

We got there early for our appointment and we were taken care of quickly, even before our appointment time. The assistant had all of our information on her computer before we entered the room. The equipment was clean and up to date and the tests went smoothly. The doctor was very detailed about his questions and performed tests that would give me a sharper image. He didn’t rush me, he took his time to complete the test. The gentleman who helped us with our glasses, Jesse, was very thorough and courteous; he let us pick out frames and took exact measurements. He was very personable and cared about what frames my husband and I had chosen. It was a fantastic experience.
