Is there any real difference between optical materials and designs?
Yes, there is a wide variation in quality between optical materials and designs. We carry only products we know will provide you with long-term satisfaction. We have access to many lenses which have special purposes for different tasks.
Why is there such a large difference in price among glasses and contact lenses?
It is because of the quality of materials and how they are processed. It is also because of the time and care spent with you to make sure you are inserting, removing and caring for your contact lenses properly. You can choose cheaper materials; however, low quality optics may result in poor or uncomfortable vision.
Why should I purchase my glasses or contact lenses at MEI?
Michigan Eye Institute will guarantee that you will receive the best materials, manufactured to the highest standards and custom-fit to your facial features. Our Opticians can assist you in making the proper selection. This will assure that you select the correct eyewear for your needs.
What about those mail-order contact lenses I saw advertised?
These companies are charging only for the lenses, often have hidden fees, and know nothing about problem solving. We provide full service with our contact lenses, which most people will need from time to time.
