Difference Between Quality Eyewear and Cheap Eyewear

Difference Between Quality Eyewear and Cheap Eyewear

Eyes are able to process 36,000 pieces of information in a single hour. Responsible for the input of our surrounding environment, our eyes play a crucial role in how we interact with the world around us. With the proper eyewear, you will easily be able to take in that information, clearly and efficiently. If you outfit your eyes with cheap, low-quality eyewear, you won’t be able to pick up on the information around you, resulting in less awareness, confusion, and lower cognitive reactions. Receive high quality, reliable eyewear when you shop at Mountain Eye Care, located at 535 Upper Wellington Street, and never miss a thing!


The everyday wear and tear of items can be reflected in the price you are willing to pay for them. Cheap eyewear may save your money upfront, but in the long run, you could dish out more money on repairs and upkeep than on the single purchase of a more expensive equivalent.

When you pay a higher price for items, you expect their lifespan to last longer than less expensive alternatives. Therefore durability is a big difference between quality eyewear and their cheap counterpart. Spend a little more to receive the reliability and longevity you want in your glasses and frames, here at Mountain Eye Care.

Cheap eye wear can add unwanted stress and tension on your eyes. Even with the proper prescription fitted in the lens, the build of the glasses can offset their visual aid. Undue strain can cause more vision-related issues, worsening the overall state of your eyes. Cheap vision wear is fundamentally counter intuitive.


Cheaply made eyewear not only causes strain in your eyes, but they can create skin irritations as well. With quality brand-name frames, the material used is safe on your eyes and skin, and are comfortable to wear. But with cheap, knock-off glasses, the materials used are of inferior quality, often containing nickel, resulting in skin irritation and discoloration.


Shopping for name-brand items may cost more upfront, but you will receive reliability, durability, and effective vision aid over that of cheaply made eyewear. Mountain Eye Care carries a wide range of glasses and frames, including Ray-Ban, Fendi, Hugo Boss, Michael Kors, Guess, Kate Spade, Hackett, and many more!
