The short answer is: quality and service will determine the price.
Not all glasses are the same! Very inexpensive eyewear purchased online is not the same quality. Glasses are not like a size L jacket you buy online. Glasses are a customized product.
By far, eyewear is mainly purchased by consumers from independent providers such as 20/20 Vision Associates as opposed to online or retail establishments because patients perceive a difference in quality, fitting and service from professional optometric offices.
How you see is partly determined by the quality of the lens product you wear. At 20/20 Vision, we choose Zeiss lenses which are known for reliable quality and better vision.
At 20/20 Vision Associates Optometry, all price ranges and levels of quality are available with a minimum standard that we will not compromise on.
Your eye care team at 20/20 Vision Associates Optometry uses sophisticated technology to provide a prescription to you.
It is strongly recommended that this prescription be filled by a physical location with licensed and/or certified professionals. Accurate measurements, fittings, adjustments as well as proper lens and frame selection are critical to your eyewear providing you with the clearest, most comfortable vision possible.
Internet providers do not service what they sell, nor do we service eyewear purchased online. We cannot guarantee the performance of eyewear purchased elsewhere.
In general, lenses typically represent a larger portion of the cost than the frame.
- Designer labels.
Eyewear is one of the least expensive ways that we can enjoy and wear a designer brand! We love our designer eyewear: Versace, Christian Dior, Prada, D&G and more.
We observe industry standard pricing. 3 times a year, we have large frame shows where designers are featured and every frame in the line is brought in for you to try on and purchase. At these shows, we offer discounts, and it is a very fun way to shop! These are great events and always well attended.
See the video below to get an idea of what a frame show is like:
- In the instance of brand names with a MSRP, we observe MSRP pricing.
Brands such as Ray -Ban, Nike and Oakley have MSRP pricing which means the price will be the same online as in our store or any other establishment.
If you find a brand with MSRP online that is far below our price (MSRP), beware that the frame may be a fraudulent copy, or it is diverted product, or the company is not operating lawfully. Do you want to give these companies your business?
- Vision Insurance transactions
Your insurance company determines pricing, therefore the same frame will be the same cost any where you go. This is because they base the cost to you on wholesale, not retail pricing.
Please understand that while we will always recommend the very best or highest quality first, there are always less expensive options.
This is a short discussion of the most common lens options you may choose to consider.
- Anti-reflective coating (AR). About 85% of all lens products are purchased with AR. This is due to improved vision with the reduction of glare as well as improved appearance of the glasses. Now there are blue-light protective anti-reflective coatings for those of us using digital devices which reduces the possible dangers of high energy wavelength light and is more comfortable for us.

We recommend the highest quality anti-reflective coating for best scratch resistance and durability since this can be a problem with anti-reflective coating. We strongly recommend Zeiss coatings whenever possible, as they lead the industry in durability. Additionally, the highest quality has the longest warranty as well (2 years).
- High-Index lenses: High-index lenses come in various levels (the higher the index, the thinner the lens). 1.74 is the thinnest lens available. For those who value a thin lens appearance, this is an option you will want. Additionally, the vision is improved due to better aspheric optics. These lenses generally require anti-reflective coating due to internal reflections.
- Impact Resistant Lenses: Trivex is an impact-resistant material with improved optics and more lightweight than polycarbonate. However, polycarbonate is approximately 10% thinner. Each has UV protection in the lens. For a more complete discussion on the pros and cons of polycarbonate vs. trivex, click here:
- Photochromic Lenses: These lenses change color from clear lenses to either gray or brown when ultraviolet light hits the lenses. This means when you are outside, they are dark like sunglasses and clear when you are inside. This can be a less expensive option than a separate pair of sunglasses, but it is also not quite as good as a separate pair of prescription sunglasses as they do not change behind the windshield of a car.
- Computer progressives (near variable lenses): For those of us in our mid to late 40's or beyond, and use a computer for 4 hours or more a day, near variable computer lenses provide the best ergonomic, comfortable vision and enable the wearer to see at multiple distances. Some are designed with a small amount of distance vision and others are designed solely for work distances.
Due to the fact computer users are staring at a screen for many hours today, blue-light protective lenses are recommended for computer lenses.
