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.

Dr. Farouq and Karla are the best! They are so accommodating and sweet. I have been to so many eye doctors over the years and have never found one that I truly like. I will be a customer of theirs for life! Bonus: the office is so clean and nice! You must check them out!

Great updated selection of eyeglasses. More like a boutique. Not like larger eye glass stores. My first choice. I usually visit shops in other cities but go to SharpVue now. Love the choices.

Dr. Farooq and Karla are wonderful. I have very complex vision problems and Dr. Farooq is literally the only optometrist who can refract and fit me properly for my contact lenses as she specializes in fitting bitoric gas permeable contacts. I have told her that she can't retire until after I've left this earth.

This place is amazing, hands down. As someone who's not originally from the area, this place makes me feel welcomed and cared about when it comes to my eye health. The ladies that work there are absolutely amazing, the professionalism is amazing, and the customer care is phenomenal. The only way to describe what it's like to be a patient here is to see for yourself, but as someone that's had many eye doctors I highly recommend this establishment. Thank you Dr. Faruq and Miss Karla!
