• Are glasses from large chains and fancy shops different?


    Question:

    My mother was told the lens quality of eyeglasses at expensive shops is different than that of large national chains. Is this true or a sales pitch?


    Answer:

    Most lenses are made in large, computer-driven machines so that inexpensive and expensive optics are of the same quality. The major cost is the frame, which can be considerable in fancier optical shops.
