Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

Optometry is a branch of ophthalmology that specializes in methods of correcting vision using optometric aids. An optometrist is a specialist who determines the degree of vision impairment and prescribes corrective aids such as glasses and contact lenses.

What is the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

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.

Dr. Tang was extremely nice and top of of the line professional. He explained everything to do with my eye imaging very thoroughly and made sure to make appropriate recommendations for some issues I've been having with dry eyes.

I am pretty sure most of these reviews here are fake. I am surprised of how they could have any rating greater than 4. Any case, this review is just a warning to anyone considered this place. Expect hiked up prices and surprise charges.

I had such an amazing experience with Dr Burke and his staff! Dr Burke and his staff was able to answer any and all questions I had prior and during my appointment and I really appreciated that as I was a new patient!

I had a horrible experience there, trying to get progressive lenses. 1st, they “weren’t comfortable” until I got a new prescription, even though the prescription I brought in still had 6 months on it. I believed them, though, because it was my 1st time getting provressives and I thought such a prescription might be different. It wasn’t. So, $50 and a month of time was wasted there. 2nd, the progressives came back and they didn’t work - the reading portion wasn’t centered so I couldn’t read with them. A clerk there didn’t believe me, and they *insisted* I take them and try to get used to them. But I couldn’t use them to read, which was the main reason I was getting them. So they finally took them back to get them redone by whatever offsite facility they used to make their glasses. 3rd, they forgot to send them back out! I called to inquire if they were fixed and was told one clerk forgot to tell the other clerk. So then they sent them out. More weeks of time wasted. When they finally I came back, in working order, it had been MONTHS to get these glasses. All in all an infuriating experience.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Tang and his team. The eye exam was very professional and Dr. Tang answered all my questions about my eye health. The customer service was great, they worked with my to utilize my health insurance and get the best price. Will definitely return!
