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.

We had a great visit with Dr. Gordon Wong in La Jolla! He is exceptionally knowledgeable, personable, and professional. We ordered two frames, and I am so looking forward to making GW Eye Associates the place where I turn for all my eye care needs in the future!

Dr. Wong and his associates take their time with patients to get the right lenses and frames! They have a great selection of beautiful frames and have Saturday hours. I get so many compliments on my glasses! Even strangers say that with masks, they recognize me by my glasses!

Last week I went to see Dr Jesse for my yearly eye exam. I have been wearing glasses and contacts since I was 15 years old, so I’ve seen many eye doctors over the years. I liked that Dr Jesse gave me her undivided attention and that she is passionate about what she does. I felt I was in better hands with her than with all my previous eye doctors, who did very quick and impersonal exams. I also liked that Dr Jesse has the latest eye equipment, and the office is kept very clean and all the COVID safety precautions are being followed.

Suazanne is an amazing Optician. I have a strong prescription. Her knowledge really impressed me on fitting me with the best lenses for my eyes. The selection of beautiful glasses was like being in a candy store, so much to choose from. She has earned my business and loyalty. I will tell all me friends and family to visit Optical Artisans!
