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.

This review is months overdue. I saw Dr. Wong back in February 2021 and I was immediately impressed. After a consultation with a Strabismus surgeon near-ish by, I needed to get my prescription updated stat for surgery measurements. I called all over the area and was super surprised when the gals at Wink said they could see me (and my husband for contacts) the same day! That was so so nice of them, especially because they did not have to squeeze us in. Dr. Wong was a really great guy and didn't try to do unnecessary tests (or prisms), considering I had just been through a ton of them. He was kind, understanding, patient, and precise. When I was picking out my new glasses, I tried on the Tom Fords (pictured) for a laugh, and was instantly in love with how different they looked. My whole life I've hated glasses and was heavily bullied growing up for my thick googly left lens prescription.. I never knew feeling good in glasses was a real thing. The girls were very supportive and ruled out a few other pairs with me to make sure I was certain.... I think they knew I needed a little encouragement. Price wise, glasses are expensive no matter what, but EyeMed helps a lot! It's ok to invest in your mental health and make sure you get something nice. The only issue I have is they don't have the warranty or insurance, but I can do that through my home warranty... something I didn't know until they let me know that was the best option! Also, knowing it will be a costly mistake to scratch or damage these glasses, I now treat them like gold! Overall, I was very happy with my experience at Wink optometry with Dr. Wong and would recommend this location. Two thumbs up from me!

I had a minor eye emergency a few weeks ago and popped in to Wink since it is near my work. The staff was great and fit me in on short notice. Dr. Wong made me feel very comfortable and explained each step of what he was doing thoroughly. I really appreciate knowing that this great team is here when I need them and I plan to continue to use them for any future eye care needs.

I’m a loyal Daas customer in LA and loved shopping at their new, beautiful location while visiting San Diego. They always surpass my expectations — carrying the hottest brands and of course I love the Daas brand glasses! I’m so impressed with how the opticians at both locations are consistent in their knowledge of lenses and styling. Alex was even at the store when I went in, so I got to meet him! He is super knowledgeable and helpful. Finished all my holiday shopping thanks for him! Highly recommend Alexander Daas for all your sunglasses and optical needs.
