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 have been having eye exams and buying glasses for 50 years. I just bought two matching pair at the end of June 2020. The exam was first rate, enjoyable and very thorough. The staff was helpful and courteous and explained everything throughly. I bought 2 pairs with the only difference being one had transition lenses. With all the discounts and specials the entire package was under $500.00 Exam and two sets of glasses! Less than 1 week later, I got the BEST PRESCRIPTION OF MY LIFE! The glasses were outstanding in all respects. I’ve read the other negative reviews and don’t agree whatsoever. I’ve never seen more clearly or had a better set of glasses and fit. The Sun Prairie Optometrist, as well as his team, and Costco’s team are awesome!

I was given an exam and then ordered contacts. The trial contacts seemed fine. Paid for 4 boxes of contacts that did not allow me to see. Costco is telling me I cannot return the contacts because the box is open....even though the product is flawed. I'm awaiting a call back from Chad who won't be in for 2 more days. I would avoid Costco optical at all costs.

I would recommend NOT getting an eye exam here. The not particularly friendly doctor made me wear a mask during the exam, which fogged up the lenses she had me looking through, so when she'd ask "Which is better, 1 or 2?" I really couldn't tell because of the fog. I ordered my glasses through Zenni, whom I've used for many years with great results, and I can't see well out of my new glasses. I'm back to wearing my glasses from 4 years ago. $120 down the drain. If I were you, I'd go somewhere else.

I'm giving them such a low score based solely on their COVID awareness. I had to go in to pick up my glasses and noted to the person waiting on me that we have vulnerable people in our family. The optical worker then quickly used hand sanitizer (he hadn't before the previous customer.) I asked if he could wear gloves and a mask...he didn't offer, didn't do those things. So I just took my glasses and left. They seem OK but I will NEVER again patronize a place that puts my family's health at risk.

Simply put cannot say enough good things. Super friendly receptionist for my eye exam. The eye doctor was very knowledgeable and kind. Went above to take out a piece of debris in my eye that she discovered. Amazing staff at the glasses counter too.
