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 was very pleased with my entire experience getting an eye exam with Dr Hale. It was easy to schedule online and once I arrived his young assistant did a through pre-check and explained things about my eyes I hadn’t know in spite of wearing glasses for almost 60 years! Dr Hale listened to my particular concerns and addressed them well. I felt very confident in his assessment and subsequent prescription for glasses to suit my needs. Very pleased with my experience and will happily recommend this practice to my family and friends.

I initially chose Bay Bridge Optometry, because it was close to my office and on my vision plan. Since it was brand new, they didn't have many reviews, so I went in with fingers crossed. I'm glad I did, as every interaction I've had has been stellar. The staff are warm and wonderful, and Dr. Liu is friendly, capable and has been extremely generous with helping me figure out which contact lenses to get, providing me with multiple free samples of different brands, suggesting ways to help save money. I'm so glad they came to the neighborhood. Three thumbs up!

Dr. Kimberly Chia was great throughout my entire eye exam — she was very thorough and knowledgeable, and answered every question I had. There were some issues in locating my insurance, but Steve & Jhenene were both extremely helpful and patient — you could tell they really cared as they put in the time and effort to make sure everything was taken care of properly. I had a truly a great experience with the whole team, thank you all!

Dr. Hale is superb! Sadly the front person Alcia ? Is awful! She is completely rude, unfriendly and makes you a favor that she is even collecting your payment. Horrible. I will not return.
