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.

Writing a review on behalf of my daughter. Although I was not the patient I am not not satisfied with her visit. Not at all. First she states she had to waited about 40 minutes to see the doctor then another 15 for him to come in. Now this is her vision that I am concerned with. He ( Kunal Patel ) failed to numb her as said so her entire procedure was pretty painful. And sent her on her way. With absolutely no after care instructions or anything. Which I find that odd don’t most places give you at least some type of paperwork stating what you had done and what to expect I mean she had her eye drained and it was bleeding?? Just told her to put a hot compress and if it doesn’t get better in a couple of weeks then she can call back to schedule with a surgeon and they can put her to sleep to be more comfortable. When he made it sounding promising at this appointment he can drain it no problem, now this?! I can’t believe that! This is my daughter’s vision. Your not just some dentist working on a cavity here!

Dr. Thompson is a great Ophthalmologist. He is really good at explaining all the details in a way that I can understand. I am extremely satisfied with my eyesight post surgery. I recommend Dr. Thompson and the team at the Tower Clock Eye Center to anyone needing their eyes looked at.
