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.

the manager was able to fix my daughter’s glasses without a problem. he was also super nice and answered all the questions we had. he also didn’t charge me for switching her glasses out. i would recommend anyone looking for glasses to come here.

Very disappointed. This is my frame and I paid $270 for the lens. When did I ask the staff if could they make the lens thin equal to the frame? She said yes if I choose the premium option ( the best one). But when I received my eyeglass, it was not the same as what they said, they explained around. I waited 2 weeks and don't want to wait for fixing. They haven’t even given me a cleaning cloth for my eyeglass and a new box. When I come home, I took at my glass details. There are different nails between 2 side frames. I have no ideas, very tired

I had an extremely wonderful experience yesterday while purchasing and getting fitted for new glasses. I worked with a young lady by the name of victoria, who was absolutely amazing! She was warm, friendly and very personable, and very knowledgeable about glasses and everything related to them. I was very impressed with this young lady; and I highly recommend this store and her specifically. I will most definitely come here again for my and my family's eye care needs. Margaret hoopes

I really loved how I was handled today. The store wasn’t to busy so I was able to walk right in and get some help. Immediately Victoria saw me and came to assist me. She let me have time to look at the glasses that I might want to get, she checked on me to make sure I was alright as I was picking them out and assist me in looking for a pair of sunglasses I also needed to get. Afterwords she helped me make the best decision I makes money wise. She was absolutely incredible today and helping me with what I needed. (frame wise and savings wise.) PLEASE ask for her the next time you are at this location, she truly has your best interest in mind. I would like for Victoria to make sure she is there for my fitting when they are shipped to that location.

This is the second time that our family has ordered a pair of glasses from vision works, and both times, our experiences were excellent. Victoria was very helpful, efficient, and has an extremely welcoming personality. She answered all of our questions, and made the process both quick and straight-forward.
