Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

Optometry is a branch of ophthalmology that specializes in methods of correcting vision using optometric aids. An optometrist is a specialist who determines the degree of vision impairment and prescribes corrective aids such as glasses and contact lenses.

Why do eyeglasses cost so much?

Eyeglasses are a complex optical device that is manufactured with high-precision equipment. Often expensive materials are used for the glasses. All of this explains why eyeglasses can be expensive.

What should you do before buying glasses?

Let's look at what to look for when buying eyeglasses. The first is, of course, quality. The second is the choice of lenses of glasses. Here we focus attention on the material: they can be either glass or plastic. The third is the choice of frames.

What's the difference between expensive glasses and cheap glasses for vision?

The quality and accordingly the price of the lens depends on the presence of coatings on the lenses. The higher the price, the more coatings on the lens. Coatings make our vision more comfortable. Lens manufacturers do not stand still and improve the quality of lenses.

How do I know which glasses fit my face?

It's best if the width of the frame is equal to or slightly larger than the widest part of your face. The upper line of the frames should coincide with the line of eyebrows. Smooth shapes of glasses will emphasize rounded curves of the face. To emphasize high cheekbones choose the "butterfly" or "cat-eye" glasses.

Where can I see better with glasses or contact lenses?

With lenses, you can see better, so it turns out that extra obstacles don't distort the image. Lenses don't shed dust, don't catch glare from the sun and don't distort peripheral vision-no matter where we look, the image stays sharp.

The doctor is friendly and is pretty good. I found one of the ladies to be very rude, almost where you could tell she did not want to be there. When I came back the next evening to order my daughter's glasses the environment was much better.

Called in to update my information, insurance and make an appointment... it was claimed to be done. I called back later that day just to confirm the time and the young lady that was there said she didn’t even see where the other girl put it in... but she told me to just come in. Here it is 10am Saturday morning, I arrive and the tell me they don’t take my insurance. Which was the same insurance she updated in the computer the day before Waste of a Saturday all to bad customer service! I would give no stars if I could ... these ladies are lost!

Made frame selection and measurements were completed. Associate said she needed to check my insurance and would call me back early in the week since it was Saturday and she could not get in touch with insurance company on the week end. Over a week has gone by. No call. When I tried to contact them, no one answered the main telephone number. I made a call to customer service and left my number for the store manager to call me. The associate taking my information was very disinterested and sounded very bored. Even though this store is the most conveniently located, it really is not worth the frustration of such poor customer service. Very interested to see if I get that call from the store manager....

I CAN SEE AGAIN! I want to thank the folks at 20/20 Optical! This was the most pleasant experience I've ever had getting glasses. The Dr. was thorough & took his time to get it right. Jake was so helpful in choosing the frames & lens. I had to swallow hard when he told me the cost, but the Crizal Lens have made a huge difference in my sight! They were worth every penny! Thank you so much for great service! I will be back!

First visit, picked out frames. Second visit, pick up glasses. My glasses just weren't right for me so my doctor gave me a new rx. On my next visit, when I gave the new info to the tech (or whoever), I told her what my doctor said about placement of the progressives. I explained several times. I went back to pick up my new glasses later on. I do not know how they reach their measurements, but now I have to hold my head all the way back to read (use the bottom part) and I have no middle area of "progression." Everything was supposed to be moved UPWARD on the lenses. I don't know how that is confusing. My bifocal field of view is literally the size of the tip of my ring finger. I have more headaches now than before I had my eyes checked. And now, I'm passed Warranty, because, of course, "Give your eyes a week or two to adjust."
