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.

Our family has been going to Dr. Swan's for over a decade! She and her staff are always very pleasant and professional!. Dr. Swan has always been very personable and thorough with our eye exams. We initially began going to her office when our family lived in Orangevale. We now live in Roseville, but do not want to go anywhere or have anyone else help us with our vision needs than this office. We enjoy the Dr. Swan, the office staff and the experience we receive by being served by this office.

Totally different exam than my regular Doctor. Informative, professional, second opinion. Took extra time to ensure my contact lenses were fitted properly. Never received service from my Doctor like what I experienced from Dr. Cooperman.

I walked in and an Assiciate was at the counter and available to assist me immediately. I wanted to get an exact duplicate of the glasses that I have worn for the last couple of years, but; although the frames I wanted were available online, they were not available at the store. That was disappointing, but the Associate told me that Brooks Brothers had gone out of business and that was why the frames were not available. He took me over to a display case and we quickly found a suitable replacement and headed to the computer station to do the measurements, and pay. Originally the frames were 170 and the lenses that I need were 480...that's 650! Seems like a lot for 1 pair of glasses, but with the sale they cost 470, so just shy of 200 dollars off because of the sale. I was told that the glasses should be ready in a couple of weeks, but may be done sooner, and that I would get an email when they came in. I was out of there in about 25 minutes total, and that was really quite fast! I always use Lens Crafters for my eyeglass needs, and would recommend them to anyone. I did not use their in-house eye exam service this time, but have in the past, and had good results. I would recommend their eye exam service, as well.

So friendly and knowledgeable! I’m so thankful the Lord led me here to Dr Swan. She is simply the best and goes above and beyond to help with all things to help your vision! I’ll never go anywhere else until the Lord restores my 20/20 vision!
