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.

I would give them an absolute 0. Don't waste your time. I had an appointment and arrived early to fill out the paperwork. 30 minutes after my appointment time the optometrist went in a room and sat down. She knew I had an appointment because I TALKED to her. I asked her if I was next and she told me she didn't have a folder. Are you kidding me! If I hadn't ask she would let me sit there for the rest of the day. Go to a respected eye doctor that depends on customer service for a living not these fly by night box store!

Waiting for contact back from a Regional Manager now. Provided customer with a faulty frame, replaced them about two months ago because the arm kept falling off. Started to do the same on the new pair and all of a sudden nothing can be done! This is rubbish. I realize you don't manufacture the product, but a company should stand by their products. Hoping your RM can provide some assistance since you obviously can't.

Today Kristina helped me alot as well as this new young man. She was patient and knowledgeable about the products.She began helping the young man that was helping me and was very classy about it. In the span of her helping me her name was called 3 to 4 times to assist others and she did it with poise. She is definitely management material please give her raise!

This facility has the same atmosphere as the eye care facility I used to visit when I was a kid. Not the most up-to-date facility, but the front desk staff is great and my prescription was on point.
