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 have vsp and I had to only pay $15 copay which is good. Some staff were amazing in greeting and answering questions. However, exam was pretty quick. I asked if I had to pay to take my prescription else where because I don't want to wait for my glasses for 3 weeks and they said no. If i have to pay when i get it I'm going to be upset. They told me my prescription would be finalized at the end of the day because there's a lot of people who want there prescription. I'll update when I get my prescription. Hopefully it wont take long because I believe a patient should get their prescription at the end of the exam and I will raise hell. I called yesterday to see if my prescription was in and they said it's been printed out just need to get sign by the doctor.. but seriously how hard is it for Dr. Vasquez to sign a paper! It's been 3 days!

Do not visit this place. The prices for the glasses are a straight up rip off. When we declined to buy their glasses the lady followed me to my car and tried to offer me a lower price. Next time don't try to rip people off and just sell the glasses at their price. I've been trying to get my son's prescription for two days now and, "It's not ready yet." No eye clinic has ever refused to give me the prescription I paid for. This is the worst eye clinic. DO NOT GO HERE.

They do this every time, I hate going there for this reason but it's the closest eye clinic to me. The Doctor is a good doctor, the problem is they don't give you your prescription until they want to. I asked right when I got there I wanted the prescription so they say I have to wait for doctor to sign it I call all day doctor hasn't signed they say it will be ready before 5 I call at 4:30 oh the doctor left without signing it. WHY DO THEY DO THIS

Like all the negative reviews here, they will give you the run around when asking for your prescription. They also tried to charge us a $85 copay when in fact we have never paid such copay anywhere else. Called our insurance and they immediately called them on the spot and put the lady in her place. Daughter got seen for contacts and they gave us an eyeglass prescription that took over a week. Wife had to stand there and told thenm she isn't leaving until we got it. Now we have to wait again for the contacts one. Worse experience ever. Should've gone with my gut and the reviews.

I was not given my prescription on the day of my eye exam. 3 days later, I am still waiting for the doctor to sign it. I paid extra for a 3d eye xray and still have not got any of my results of all the testing from the doctor. Clerk only told me all was ok. I asked for a copy of my medical records from my visit and they told me it would cost me $50! Outrageous! I have visited many eye doctors in my life and never have I experienced anything like this.
