The Average Cost of Eye Glasses

Save

Eyeglasses range in price depending on the complexity of the prescription, the type of frames chosen, and where the glasses are purchased. Different add-on features also increase the price of the eyewear.

Features

Bifocals or trifocals are more costly than standard lenses, and no-line bifocals are priced even higher. Having extras such as scratch-resistant coating or anti-glare coating will edge up the price as well.

Considerations

Along with the types of lenses and frames chosen, choosing where to purchase eyeglasses is a big factor in cost. Generally, warehouse clubs and internet retailers have lower prices than optometrists' offices or chain stores. However, for quality follow-up service you might consider paying a little more if you can afford to.
