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.

This office is SO friendly and honest. I have been to many a medical establishment that bent the facts in their financial favor, and First Eye Care is not one of them. They are quick to see you for your appointment; if you're there early, there's a good chance you'll be in within a matter of minutes of your arrival. If you're late, they are understanding and will get you in as soon as they can. The doctors themselves are good listeners, and the entire staff is genuinely interested in your well being. I will definitely continue to use this office for my family and recommend it to others.

I love Dr. Pieper and her staff! She listens carefully and tries hard to give me exactly what I need and want. My vision is as near perfect with correction as possible. I love that she will let me try the trial contacts many times until I find just the right one. I have horrible allergies and dry eyes so being able to try until it's feels right means so much.

I had a wonderful experience with this office! Everyone at First Eye Care was very nice, professional and definitely knew what they were doing. The doctor was great and the selection of glasses was more than I needed. I love my new glasses and love knowing I found great eye care so close to home!

We loved dr. pieper. she was very kind, informative, and patient. the whole experience was great, from making the appt on the phone to buying my son's glasses at the end. i particularly appreciated the fact that it didn't take hours like our old eye appointments did. and we didn't have to have our eyes dilated because of the photo machine. dr. pieper even took the time to show my homeschooled kids the anatomy inside their own eyes! cannot recommend this place enough.

I've been going here since I started needing glasses with aging 4-5 years ago :( Dr Blake is so personable, remembers you from year to year and truly works to accomplish your vision/eyewear needs!
