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 liked it so much due to the receptionist working hard. You can tell she needed help but she still performed. the doctor was pretty nice as well, had conversation during the appointment and treated me as a person instead of an insurance payment. The receptionist was very thorough in teaching me how to insert and remove my contacts as I am new this.

I've been seeing Dr. Prince at 20/20 Icare for the past couple of years. He's been very diligent on keeping up with my eye care. It's nice to go somewhere and they remember who you are. It makes for a better working relationship. I would recommend anybody looking for a good optometrist give Dr. Prince a call. You'll be glad you did!

Went to get some new glasses late in the day and Tonette was working. She was so helpful. My son tried numerous frames before making a decision. Even though she was close to closing she took her time to make sure we were getting the best deal for our insurance and also gave us a 20% discount on a second pair. Would definitely come back and recommend this location

I had my first proper eye exam ever at Killeen Eye Associates today and it was a Home Run! I am 59 years old and felt it was time. Every individual that assisted me was very kind and cordial. Dr. Reyes was very informative, quick to answer any questions and did not pressure me to purchase anything more than what I asked for. I was given a free sample of a new medication I inquired about. The cost of the exam was exactly what they said it would be. I will return in the future and I highly recommend Killeen eye Associates, P.A. Thank you very much, Joe

I am so disappointed with the professionalism of Dr Sturtevant. I called to find out why they would not file on my insurance. I was transferred to Dr Sturtevant and he flat out told me not to call his office back and slammed the phone down! Needless to say I was shocked! It all started with a simple request in January to file on my insurance for an eye exam. Dr Sturtevant's office said my husband was not covered by insurance. We went ahead with the exam and paid cash. I contacted my insurance agent to see why and was told he was covered. My insurance agent said to have the doctors office back date the claim to submit it. After many calls between doctors office and insurance, my agent gave them a courtesy call to give them the authorization code to file since the ladies at the doctors office said they could not get the approval from insurance; only to be told that they were not going to file the claim. My insurance agent called me to let me know what they were told. I called the office to ask why. That is when Dr Sturtevant himself informed me emphatically that they would not submitt the claim and I was was NOT to call back! Believe me, I will respect his wishes. Not only will I not call back I will never make another appointment! I hope to never have to experience this type of behavior again!
