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.

Check your customers insurances! This was my second time going there and we were sure our insurance was active specially when we made the appointment with time and like any other place we rely on the provider to assure our insurance is all in other to proceed with the appointment. Well my husband and I made it there waited about 40 min to be seen. And we got asked to go back and all. But ones it was time to check our allowance for the glasses the front lady said she couldn’t find us and it was confirmed our insurance was not active for some reason. Which we yet to find out till tomorrow. But when I asked the front desk lady about if they don’t check the insurance prior to the appointment she said no. That there is an automatic system that does it but even then you still gotta look and see the result from the system, right? Well we end up paying 200 dls which btw we aren’t able to afford at this moment. Very bad and poor service from their end to to this just to rip people off like that, I’m sure if you relay on systems to check this main thing and then you guys don’t confirm or even look at the end result. I’m not the only one this has happen. And I know it because there was a lady with a young girl before us and something similar happen to them. All because not verifying customers insurances or options. But just like the lady we had to figure out payment because that’s the one thing they do make sure is done, get our money.

The new location and facility is really nice. Dr. Dawood is super friendly and explains everything. She always made a point to ask if I had any questions before moving on the next thing. I would recommend Dr. Dawood and Melissa Eye Associates to anyone looking for an eye doctor.

Dr. Allen is really thorough. He and his staff did a terrific job. I ordered lenses and I’ve been extremely happy with them. I highly recommend them. New in the area and consider them a real blessing.

My husband and I were blown away with the friendly staff at TSO. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful answering any questions we had. The prices were lower than other eye care services. It was a total win win
