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 just had a patient visiting Utah and ruined their contact lenses. Upon confirmation with my office, Dr Taylor immediately provided my patient with his own trial lenses and saved the vacation. If Dr Taylor and staff provided this level of personal care for my patient, I can't imagine how high the level of care they will provide for you as their patient! Dr Taylor and his office truly care!

One of the easiest and most enjoyable eye appointments I have ever had. Dr Gummow was knowledgeable and truly helped to guide me in my decision about my vision. The entire team was friendly and helpful. Truly a pleasant experience.

Dr. Allen (Scott Allen) is no longer there. Dr. Gummow is the doctor now. I can't say enough how much I like Dr. Gummow. I have an astigmatism in my left eye and it has been hard to nail down the contact lens prescription. Dr. Gummow has been patient and he has it dialed in. This is the first time in years that I have been able to see clearly out of both eyes. By the way, I like Dr. Allen as a person, but I wasn't as impressed with his ability to fix my eyesight. I originally went to see him and he misdiagnosed my astigmatism in my left eye as something else where the eye is no longer round thereby requiring hard contact lenses. I didn't want hard lenses so I just suffered with poor eyesight for two or three years. Finally I went back and Dr. Gummow figured out that I could fix my eyesight with soft contact lenses. I am one happy customer.

I lost my glasses in a river last Saturday and needed something fast. I called Monday morning at 8:30 and they were able to get me in at 9 (combination of luck and awesomeness on their part). Just got my glasses Friday the same week so faster than I expected and excellent quality. Doctor Taylor was also really good and I felt comfortable there. Definitely a place I'd like to visit routinely.
