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.

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.

This is a genuine caring and customer oriented office. Karen at the front desk definitely knows her stuff from insurance to finding the right pair of glasses. Dr. Marcus is very knowledgeable and knows when to refer a patient on. My family and I have been seeing him for 3 years now.

I recently had my annual eye exam at this location. I had a great experience with the staff and the Optometrist. The establishment is clean and organized. Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable. One of the staff in particular, Rio, was extra helpful. She aided me in selecting a new frame and trained me in proper contact lens wear. She was very friendly, professional and hospitable. I recommended my wife to come this location and she had a similar experience. I will continue to go this location my eye care needs.

Dr. Juang is the best optometrist. She’s the only doctor I will get my prescription from. If I ever leave the area, I will travel just to make sure she takes care of my eyes. Dr. Juang is a treasure. She is thorough and detailed. She is meticulous with her measurements and is an excellent human. She has a wonderful bedside manner. She made my 8 yr old nephew very comfortable during his eye exam. She spent extra time answering his questions. I credit her with impressing on him the importance in wearing his glasses daily. Dr. Juang also saved my husband’s vision. He had severe retinal detachments needing buckle surgery in both eyes and she caught both issues. He lacked any symptoms and wouldn’t have had it checked out without Dr. Juang’s intervention. I will forever be her patient. Wherever she goes, I’ll follow. That’s just how good she is.

Such a great experience. Friendly & helpful staff. Nice selection of frames. Dr. Hansson is meticulous in figuring out what works, even for tricky old eyes like mine. Very nice office, too. Reassuring cleaning protocol with machines, glasses, etc. Recommended!
