Glasses: What You Should Know About Them
Spectacles, eyeglasses or simply glasses are made from glass or hard plastic lenses. The lenses are kept in place via a frame. The lenses are held in front of the wearer's eyes, using arms that go over the ears and a bridge that goes over the nose.
Glasses are used to correct specific vision problems. For example, reading glasses and glasses can be used to correct nearsightedness. If you struggle seeing what you read, then reading glasses can help.
Safety eyeglasses protects the eyes from flying debris. These types of glasses are designed for lab technicians, construction workers and others who work in industries in which debris is common. Safety glasses are sometimes designed to protect the sides of the eyes and the lenses themselves. There are also glasses that protect from radiation, near-visible light and things of that nature.
Players in some sports wear protective glasses. Squash is one of those sports. They are worn to protect the eyes from becoming injured. Glasses for sports often are equipped with straps, which are designed to prevent them from falling off.
Glasses may be attached to a cord. The wearer will keep the cord around their neck. This is so they do not lose the glasses.
Sunglasses allow a person to see better in bright daylight and the lenses protect the eyes against UV light. Most sunglasses are darkened and there are specialized glasses that are clear when there is no light, but darken when exposed to light. However, most sunglasses do not correct vision problems, but there are prescription sunglasses that are specifically designed to correct vision problems.
There are specialized glasses that can be used for viewing visual content. For example, if you want to watch a 3D film, then you can wear a pair of 3D glasses. Eyeglasses come in a range of styles, and many people wear glasses for fashion purposes. Popular materials used to make glasses include wire and plastic.
The older people get, the higher the chances are of needing glasses. In fact, more than half of adults between 65-75 were glasses or will need glasses at some point.
As you can see, eyeglasses are important and people wear them for many reasons.
Eyeglasses Pensacola – Find Your New Specialist At The Fifty Dollar Eye Guy
When your vision isn’t what you need it to be, life can be well, difficult.
We know that, and we get that. There’s a reason you are on this page right now and believe us it is not by accident.
Regardless of how you ended up here, we’d like you to keep reading because we think you have FINALLY found your eye doctor.
There are a couple of things that come up when we see new patients.
It usually sounds a little like this:
- They had difficulty just getting in to see their last eye doctor
- Their last appointment was uncomfortable and they didn’t know what was going on during the exam
- The costs (even with insurance) were just TOO high
- They didn’t really offer many options when it came to coverage and financial alternatives
- The dilation process was overwhelming and they had difficulty just walking out of the exam
Sound familiar at all?
The problem isn’t you.
The problem isn’t the “other guys.”
Sometimes, it’s just not a good fit.
And just like the perfect pair of glasses, if they just don’t fit right on your face, you need to scrunch your nose, wiggle your face or may even get some tension headaches from the uncomfortable fit.
We want you to know that we’ll do our absolute best to make sure it’s a good fit – financially and otherwise.
We work one-on-one with our patients. When you become a patient of ours, you become a part of our family – plain and simple.
Why Choose Us?
We’ve been around for quite some time and have a track record to prove why you should choose us.
However, this is about you not about us.
Some of the problems that we see arising in the eye care industry are things like long wait times for an appointment, discomfort with the service provider and high costs.
Here at Fifty Dollar Eye Guy, we don’t just choose any optometrist that walks through the door.
We have a very selective process as we know that our business, our livelihood and our reputation hinges on the type of service that we provide.
We select our Doctors and Eye Care Professionals through many other requirements besides what shows up on a resume.
We make our decision based on things such as:

Our staff will also help you to find financial alternatives so you can get the best care possible.

My daughter was treated with respect and was put completely at ease through the entire process. We were able to meet with and talk to Mark the "fifty dollar eye guy" and very quickly learned why he deserves our repeat business. Mark without hesitation expedited the process and my daughter was in to her first pair of glasses. Throughout the process his staff was thorough, professional, knowledgeable and helpful which of course was key to the expeditious results and treatment that we received. To anyone that is looking for new glasses or if your not satisfied with the service that you have received elsewhere please give the "Fifty dollar eye guy" a try. Trust me you will want to go back.
