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’ve been seeing Dr. Stehlik for 8 years and I have always been impressed by her knowledge and the time she takes helping me see clearly. My astigmatism is pretty severe and she has always made an effort to find the best fitting contacts for me. I have seen various eye doctors for the past 30 years and she is certainly one of the best!

My family and I have been going to Lakeway Vision for nearly two decades and they have never steered us in the wrong direction. The doctors and receptionists are friendly, transparent, and caring! I recommend Lakeway Vision to anyone in the Lakeway area.

I have been getting my eyes checked at this location for the majority of my life. Even though I no longer live in Lakeway, I still go out there for all my glasses and contact needs. The staff is so kind and they always get me in and out of there quickly.

Though Amy totally knows her stuff, my glasses took 33 days to get! Phone messages do not get returned. I had to drive there twice to find out what was the delay. After waiting two weeks I drove over there to find out that Amy had to send them back because the prescription was not correct. I'm grateful she caught that, but don't understand why she did not call to let me know. The lab was supose to rush them but I still waited another 2 1/2 weeks. It was not until I sent a e-mail asking her to refund my $ that I got a response that my glasses were in. She is very nice but that does not make up for the total lack of communication.

Tamara spent a lot of time with me. She was very patient and knowledgeable. She tweaked my old frames. She took the time to get through to my insurance company -- we all know what a hassle that can be. A very pleasant experience. Would recommend the Lakeway Optical Shoppe to my friends and neighbors. Thanks much, Tamara
