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.

They messed up my order not once but twice I requested a refund they refused and on top of that they took 2 weeks and a half for the contacts trial and another month for the final contact so you will be waiting for like 2 months

Most deceiving business they sell you an insurance to cover your glasses but at the end they give you a different story as you try using the Insurance. I bought some prescribed glasses and they sold me an insurance that would cover scratches or damages. Now that I take them cuz they got scratched they say that the insurance will not cover it because you scratched them will hello they don’t scratch by themselves. I see it as they charge for the insurance but do not tell you that it really won’t cover. So what good is the insurance. Worst place ever and last time going oh and by all means they are expensive glasses so what good did they do. I do not recommend this place.

Ridiculous waiting time, was there before 8:30 am waited more than 3 hrs as a walk in, was then told by staff that I was removed from list, was put back and had to wait additional hour, was told by staff that although I was a walk in and came before those with appointments, they will always see them first and keep pushing us back, not working us in btw them. only here bc I really need contacts, would not recommend anyone to go there as a walk in and will not be going back

The staff was great they were very polite and explained my options. I didn't have to wait long either. I would have given a five star but I wasn't quite happy with the Doctor. He walked in did what he did very routine. But he didn't take time to explain what changes were made in my eye site. He lacks communication with the patients. Makes you feel like he doesn't enjoy his job. I think my family and I have to go elsewhere next time.
