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 called asking if they see one year old she said it was something my pediatrician would set up not understanding the word i was saying to her and that i had a paper referral from my child pediatric doctors office stating she needed to be seen by an ophthalmologist or optometrist she said he was neither but not once said if they seen 1 year olds or not definitely was a very odd encounter

Staff member was pretty rude, not sure if she was just having a bad day but it didn’t feel welcoming at all. We left quickly. It felt like I was an inconvenience even being there. My daughter, who we went in for, felt so uncomfortable that she wouldn’t even try on a few frames. Went to lens crafters where we were warmly welcomed and were able to get a new pair within an hour.

When I broke my glasses I was a wreck. I'm out of town and thought I would never find a place to make them on the spot then I found them. Not only was the Dr super thorough but so was the woman helping me pick out glasses. She marked where my eyes were so the center could be perfect. I have never been so happy!

This was my best experience getting glasses from the time I walked in the door until I picked up 2 pair glasses maybe an hour later.The person at the desk actually did everything she was so very professional and friendly. I really liked my glasses and she adjusted the perfectly.The price was so very affordable. This was not my first visit and definitely won't be my last.
