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.

After reading many reviews for optometrists in the area my wife and I decided to schedule an appointment with Dr. Shoji Morita. This was my first time getting glasses and I must say this had to have been, hands down, one of the most positive experiences I’ve had working with a business be it a doctors office or otherwise. The eye exam was extremely thorough and doc got my lens prescription absolutely perfect. Throughout the exam the doc was patient and explained everything he was doing and why he was doing it. My wife even commented that the last time she got glasses the doctor (a different optometrist at a different location) was not nearly as thorough as doctor morita. My wife and I were in a crunch for time and were leaving town he next day. We let the office know this and they were more than happy to work with is and they made our glasses THE SAME DAY! I have now referred my mother and sister in-law who will be booking appointments soon. I will also be taking my kids here next time they need new glasses. 10/10

Dr. Morita was so kind to do an exam on my twin 2 year olds even though he is not a pediatric optometrist. He then spent some time calling over ten different offices asking if they both took younger than 5 and took our insurance. Thank you, Dr. Morita! I felt very cared for and am sad my kids are not yet old enough to see you.
