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've been going to Dr. Gee for years. He and his staff genuinely care for their patients from your initial exam to picking your eyewear. The level of care you get from Dr. Gee and his staff is top notch. If you need a optometrist Dr. Gerry Gee is the best choice in the South Bay.

Dr. Gee's office is the best. He does a more complete eye exam than any other eye doctor that I have been to. The staff is very helpful. Dr. Gee will call you personally if there is something that he is concerned about. He will tell you what you need but not try to sell you anything.

Always kind, engaging, personable and professional. The office is clean, staff acknowledged you and makes sure you're as comfortable as possible. Voice tones are clear, calm and audible. I appreciate being cared for here and will continue to come as long as I'm in the area. :)

I have been wearing glasses since the 8th grade and contacts since the 11th. This is the second best optometrist I have ever had. The first one being in Florida where I started wearing contacts.

I saw Dr. Yuan for my eye needs. His staff was very friendly and helpful the moment I walked through the doors. Dr. Yuan was very professional and personable at the same time. He checked my vision for both contacts and eyeglasses and let me know what my options were based on my insurance. His staff was patient with me as I chose my eyeglasses and was able to process me very quickly. Definitely found my new optometrist!
