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.

An Amazing experience. My glasses broke and then my back up glasses broke the very next day on Friday. I called Ocean Optical Friday afternoon asking for the next available appointment as I am pretty much blind without them. I had a few disposable contacts to get me through. When I explained my situation the doctor agreed to see me first thing monday morning even though he wasnt suppose to even be at the office. He was so friendly and laid back. Made me feel super comfortable even though he was the one who should have felt Inconvenienced. He was super reasonable price wise and even put a rush on my glasses and said they would be in by Thursday or Friday. I have been wearing glasses since i was 8 and i have never received glasses sooner than 2 weeks. Amazing Service, attitude and business. if I could give it 10 stars I certainly would!

Dr. Peña was amazing! I lost my glasses in the ocean and was able to get an early morning appointment. Not only did he get me a new prescription for glasses, he also gave me trial contacts so that I would be able to see for the rest of my trip! He was also super helpful in showing me how toput the contacts in and take them out.

I highly recommend Dr. Peña. When my husband lost his glasses in the Gulf, he contacted Ocean Optical & left a message hoping to hear back soon. Within the hour, on Saturday, Dr. Peña called my husband and offered to see him early Sunday morning. Dr. Peña was very helpful, super kind, & affordable.

Dr. Pena is not only an amazing person but an awesome Dr. I would like to thank you for going out of your way on a busy weekend to meet me for replacement contacts while I’m in town vacationing with my family. Your a life saver. We both know I’m blind like a bat! And you came through and helped me out! I really appreciate your service sir. More Doctors should strive to be like him. He cares about his patients and went above and beyond. Thanks John J.

Thank you SO much Doctor Peña! I called last second today because my eye had been sensitive. Nothing I was worried about. I only called because my husband wanted me too. Anyways, Dr. Peña took it seriously(which I’m thankful he did) and squeezed me in for a 15 min appointment at the end of the day. I had an eye ulcer which can be very bad. His demeanor was so kind and gentle and I left thinking to myself “that is the most caring person I have ever met.” Thank you so much!
