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've been getting my glasses from Visionworks for at least a decade now. I've mostly had only good experiences with the company. The only real issue was when there was a mix up with my mother's credit card at the Mayfair location. They had an issue with the return until Emily stepped in to fix it. I was so happy with how professional and on top of everything she was, I brought my business to this location when Emily transferred here. It's in such a cute part of town and the employees have been so good to me here. I definitely recommend going to them.

Traveling from East Coast visiting grandchildren and had a mishap with a ball and my glasses. Called the store and Raven was so pleasant on phone telling me that the problem sounds like something her manager would be able to help me. What a wonderful atmosphere the employees created when I walked in! Thank you VisionWorks Shorewood for making the rest of my visit with clear vision. Very much appreciated, Steve

This was our first time at Visionworks on Oakland and we were really happy with our experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My daughter got glasses for the first time and they all gave their feedback on the way the frames looked, they were very positive, but honest! The doctor was quick and nice too. My daughter uses they/them pronouns and the first staff person picked up on it right away, which was very considerate. Finally, my child was very indecisive picking out frames and they were so patient! They were informative while ordering the lenses but didn’t pressure us to do extras(we did some anyway). We will definitely be back there, it’s so nice to be around people who are happy and seem to enjoy their jobs!

This branch of VisionWorks is superb! The staff and doctor were some of the friendliest people and are completely customer oriented. Dare I say that it seemed that the staff enjoyed their jobs and were having fun??! The atmosphere was so welcoming. I will continue to patron this location even though it is a drive for me. I would definitely recommend coming here!

I came in dang near close to closing time due to a previous appointment. I needed a prescription filled. We have really good insurance so I really just needed to look at frames. The two ladies were very helpful. Very nice and professional. They did not rush me they allowed me to take time to pick out my frames and when I needed to ask questions they were there to help. I appreciated there professionalism because I was I never been there before. In the past I needed reading glasses as we age well now I need glasses for all day wear. This is the place to go for me. Job well done Visionworks you have a new customer....
