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.

What is the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

What does an optometrist do?

Functionality: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services. Include: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services.

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.

Went in looking for new glasses and Madison was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. She worked through a number of different frame options with me until we finally settled on one. 5 stars for her and making this a seamless, enjoyable experience!


Noelle Anderson  |  Rating: 5  |  Vision Source - Dr. Michael Blackburn, OD

Dr. Blackburn and his staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient! Dr. Blackburn explained so much to me in a way that was easy to understand - his passion for what he does was evident. Great experience, and my 3 young kids go there as well.


Burposo 504  |  Rating: 2  |  America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses

Great prices but very unprofessional. The optometrist was nice, very knowledge and gave thorough exam. The support staff however were very unprofessional and for lack of a better word, ghetto! I called the store several times to see if my glasses had arrived. Twice I was left on hold for over 10 mins. Finally after two weeks of waiting I went in to inquiry and the glasses were there...nobody bothered to call and let me know. I asked the tech about adjusting the fit and it was literally like I was speaking another language to her. I would not recommend this location.


Karen Lee  |  Rating: 5  |  Eye DO Family Eye Center: Dr. Ami Epstein OD

Dr. Epstein and her staff are excellent. We've always gotten wonderful, considerate care. I've been wearing glasses or contacts for many years. Dr. Epstein gives the best eye exam I've ever had.


Teresa Chandler  |  Rating: 5  |  Red Mountain Eye Care

My eye checkup is always delightful. Dr. Gagnon is the best. He understands budgets and is always working with you on what you can afford. He also is realistic about contacts, and will ask you to honestly tell him how much wear you get out of a contact. He genuinely cares about his patients. He's also entertaining and funny. The staff is similarly helpful and knowledgeable. All around A+. Some specifics for those looking to know safety guidelines: During the COVID-19 pandemic, the office has enacted precautions to keep everyone safe. Patients are spaced out and required to wash their hands immediately upon entering, masks on at all times except during relevant parts of the exam, and family members are to wait outside. Any glasses customers handle are sterilized after use.
