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.

Our family has been attending the Cottage Grove Eye Care (Dr Nelson) for almost 6 years. My children and I have received great care from the staff. I trust their professional opinions and service. We highly recommend Dr Nelson and his staff for any adult or child in need of eye care. They are great!

Everyone here is very professional. They all treat you very well. They use the optimap so they are able to examine more of your eyes. Dr.Nelson takes all the time you need to ask questions. The woman that helps with your glasses is awesome.

I was very impressed with Dr. Nelson’s ability to work with my son who has sensory issues. He was calm and very helpful in managing my sons intense fear and reluctance to cooperate. I would highly recommend this clinic to anybody!

Very friendly, thorough, & professional. Up to date with latest technology. Quick turn around time with my glasses. Very helpful trying to pick out glasses and with figuring out my insurances, and which would be most cost effective as I was ordering glasses and contacts using two different insurance policy's. Dr. Nelson also came up with a great plan for me, as I had been struggling with a vision issue. Very happy with the service. This was my first time being seen there as a patient, and I will definitely be a regular now! Thank you for your great service CG Eye Care! Traci
