Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

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.

My wife has small pupils and had very great difficulty seeing at night with the best lenses from another leading optical retailer. She tried the new lenses from Specs Appeal and they bring in far more light than the old ones, and she can now see well enough to drive again after dark. The width through the lens at which objects at medium distances remain clear is almost edge-to-edge, which is unheard of in progressive lenses! Thank you, Specs Appeal! I'll be getting a pair from you before year end too. Dan

Just want to say great service is refreshing to come upon. The day before we stopped at another eyeglass company and they were less than helpful. Then we went to this location and friendly, knowledgeable service is exactly what happened when my wife and I went in to get our year end glasses. A special shout to Cindy as well as the rest of the staff that day. Turned into a very pleasant time.

The staff were friendly and efficient. I enjoyed my visit. I visited another location and the staff were horrible. Thank you E. Capital Vision Mart for changing my experience! I would definitely recommend this location!

I found same glasses for literally half the price on America's Best website 2 days after my purchase and was told by Adam, the manager of Port Washington location, they don't price match and I should have done my research before purchasing. That made me feel great as a customer, so I will no longer be shopping with Wisconsin Vision at all. Get better customer service and comparable prices.

This place is the best. Our daughter forgot her contacts and glasses at home during the holidays. We came to see if this location had her prescription. Not only did they have her prescription they provided us with a free sample to last her for the rest of our trip! If you are a person that needs glass or contacts you can fully appreciate being able to see. What a blessing and the customer service was superb. They were ready to help us from the moment we walked in! I am so thankful! Thank you Lens Crafters!
