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.

A great eye doctor, I have been to many eye doctors and never received the care that I have here. Dr Meadows is very thorough and explains everything to you, and if you have been there previously he explains any and all changes compared to your previous visit. The assistants working for Dr. Meadows are also very friendly and through. All the staff here are great from the office staff, Dr. Meadows assistants, Dr. M. Meadows and the staff in the eye glass area. I would recommend to anyone looking for a new eye doctor this is a great place.

I took both my girls to Eastern Eye Associates. One is 6, one is 9. The staff was phenomenal. They're organized, friendly and definitely pediatric friendly. I will be switching my husband and myself over to them for our next appointments. First class place!

Overpriced, will not take insurance, promises what they cannot deliver. I would never recommend this business. If I could rate it a "zero" I would, especially after being charged $600 "cash" for lens only work that was ill fitting with no attempt to adjust for proper fitting.

I was a patient at Eastern Eye Associates in the past and was extremely pleased with the level of service I received. My husband and I recently changed our vision insurance plan and decided to choose Eastern Eye Associates based on my past experience with them. The entire staff was professional, courteous and extremely pleasant to talk with. They took the time to answer any questions or concerns we had with our check-up and our insurance. My husband and I are extremely pleased that we chose Eastern Eye Associates located in Hayes, VA for all of our future vision needs!

Mr. Green did a beautiful job of restoring my broken frameless glasses while visiting from out of town. He has a great selection of frames too. Green's is definitely my new go to place for glasses in the Gloucester area. Thank you!
