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.

I absolutely love working with Jessica. She was so accommodating and very helpful. She walked me through every procedure kindly and helped me get my contact and eye prescription updated. She then helped walk me through my options for contacts so I could make the best financial decision possible. I also found the store to be very clean and all the glasses were organized nicely. Jessica was also very patient as I worked to check on my insurance benefits which My Eye Lab was able to match. I was also so glad they accept my health savings card here. For anyone needing updated exams, new glasses or contacts, I highly recommend this location. The other employees were also very kind to me. I will certainly be back in the future!

While I did not get glasses or service. I did appreciate the honesty of the staff. Instead of making a sale the staff recommend that I see an actual optometrist. It is great customer service!

I called for an appointment with a local number, but then I got connected to a foreign call center. So, I hung up quickly. I don't ever give my personal info to foreign call centers. Nope, not I.

Unprofessional staff and customer service. Customer service quoted $45 for children with Medicaid or CHIP. So, we made an appointment after being urged by customer service rep. We showed up for the appointment, realized that we forgot the cards and so, before my husband dropped us off and returned home to get the insurance cards, the female employee that he encounter told him that the cost would be $85 per child with the discount for having medicaid. She then runs through a story about how the regular doctor isn't there but she could do children's exams which would take 30 minutes each and consume and hour of total time. So, we got the hint that our appointments were really appreciated or welcomed. Then, we cancelled our appointment. Needless to say... I use them for my eyeglasses and contacts because they accept our insurance. But after finding a new provider for our children while in a pinch, I think I will now join them.

In from out of town and my glasses broke leaving me unable to drive well or see far away. Rubi was an incredible help! She was able to find the correct screw for my glasses and fix them enough so I can use them temporarily. Amazing customer service!
