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.

From the initial phone call to the ordering of my new contacts, I felt like a valued person. Dr Timothy Hell was so patient with my hundreds of questions and I never saw an “ eye - roll in the head once

I come here for all my lens needs. In my most recent visit I got attended by Maryann, Dr. Mueller and Lijah. They were pretty kind and very friendly. Their excellence in customer service is something you would find at this place. My pair of glasses also arrived ultra early and I love them.

Normally I don't write reviews but my experience here has been absolutely ridiculous. To start, when I was ordering my contacts, there were staff members at the front desk gossiping, it took almost an hr because the employee didnt know how to work the system. They told me the contacts would be in in about 2 weeks. At the 2 week mark I received an email asking me how my contacts were but I still had not received them. I called to check the status of my order & they had still not come in, the employee told me they would be in that friday or the next monday. I called Tuesday & spoke to another employee who told me they took about 14 business days instead of 2 weeks. When I told her I needed my contacts & asked if there was another brand I could try she said "Well dont you have glasses" & proceeded with telling me I would need to redo my eye exam even though i JUST had one, so I declined & continued waiting. I just called again as its been almost a month. This employee told me the brand I ordered is on at least a ONE MONTH DELAY but should be here next week hopefully... I have been out of contacts since the beginning of June. I am now without any backup if something happens to my glasses & will be leaving the state. If I would have known when I ordered them that there was this type of delay, I would have asked right then for a different brand & spoke with the doctor. Now I am waiting yet again for the Doctors approval on if I can switch to a different brand that they have a trial of instore. I am beyond dissatisfied and would never recommend this place to anyone. Very unprofessional & unhelpful.

My sister, from out of state, lost a screw on her prescription glasses. We stopped at the local Pearl Optical office and they initially was told they couldn't help. But, they did replace the screw for $20.00. Would not go there for anything again.

My brother and I had a great experience here. Either this place has gotten much better recently with the management change, or the reviews are over exaggerating with how “bad” it is. I really liked my experience actually. I was surprised to here that you can create an account online, you can find your prescription there, and you can order contacts there. That’s really convenient. The eyecare club was a good deal for me, I paid $100 or so to get my $90 contact lens exam free, and I also saved $40 or so on my glasses. So I ended up saving money overall by doing it, and now I can also get eye exams for the next 3 years free (I’m sure there’s a limit per year). I ended up getting a pair of glasses off of the $70 deal rack, and the glasses ended up being about $150 after the addition of high refractive index lenses. Not a terrible deal at all honestly. You might be able to get glasses for less online, but I honestly liked the experience, it wouldn’t be that much cheaper online due to the high refractive index lenses, and supporting a more “local business” always feels nice.
