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

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.

Fantastic experience! The staff and Dr are super friendly and helpful. Making an appointment on their website was so easy. The office was super clean. I can't say enough good things. We drove from an hour away because of a groupon. And because of the excellent service we will continue driving here!

I’ve had glasses for YEARS, but have never been able to find an optometrist who would be patient enough to fit me with the right contacts. Thankfully I found Advanced Eye Care. The doctors and staff are incredibly kind and knowledgeable. You can tell that they are on the cutting edge of eye care. Highly recommend.

The staff is good, I just have an issue with the doctor. Though pleasant I just can’t trust his judgment. Had to go back twice for proper glasses, but he told me my stigmatism was healed and I didn’t need glasses anymore took them off believing and definitely not the case. With the level of experience I would have expected a better exam. Went to another doctor and got a totally different review.
