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.

Absolutely amazing. This was the best experience I've ever had at a eye center yet, and I will definitely be going back moving forward. The staff were incredibly nice and beyond just helpful, explained everything in a concise fashion making it extremely easy to understand. 10/10 I will be recommending them to every person I personally know who may need a place to get some glasses or contacts. Words do not describe, nor do justice to them. Truly amazing.

I took my special needs daughter. Her glasses had the wrong prescription. Second round she still can’t see I arrive early and I am told to come back in 5 days or just get a refund and leave. Nick has poor customer service and he lacks compassion. They just lost 5 clients in my family and we had gone 5 years. The doctor is nice but the rest is pathetic. Horrendous service. Stay away.

Worst experience ever! The whole process felt rushed. Steps were skipped and I had to ask for a sample contacts which I know for a fact that are always given (when available.) I left with them in hand....usually the eye doctor verifies that the contacts fit properly. Never coming to this location again! I left infuriated!

Mrs. Leslie, the manager, was absolutely fabulous today. I had an issue with my glasses and Tanaya helped me get my issue resolved. They were absolutely fabulous and professional in getting my issue resolved. These ladies made it a super fun experience! You won’t find better customer service

Dr. Gerdts is an amazing doctor! I drive out of my way to see him. However, I will not be returning to his practice because his office staff is atrocious. They are rude and they act like you are bothering them if you ask them anything. I have seen this Doctor more than 15 years, but I will not be back due to his horrible office staff. I tried, to call the office to express my concerns to the Doctors, however, the office staff would not let me talk to the Doctor unless I made and appointment, also the staff would not give me the Doctor' s email address to express me concerns. I WILL NOT BE BACK AFTER 15 +YEARS WITH THIS DOCTOR.
