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.

The Staff at this store are so nice. They were very observant of all safety precautions, and very professional. The friendly conversation put me at ease and helped me feel right at home there.. I cannot say enough good comments about this place.

I came in for a routine..long overdue... eye exam and I was SO pleased! The customer service is amazing there and Dr. Zhang was so sweet & informative! Their COVID-19 protocol and sterilization is superb. You can definitely tell they spend a good amount of time actually sanitizing and taking the precautions as we should. Definitely recommend.

I had a great experience at this location. The staff was courteous as they and the doctor answered my questions, and explained the process step by step as we worked through the examination. After I picked out my frames, I was walked through the options for the lenses. The staff member helping me explained the differences with the options and after I made my choices the staff member found the best applicable promotions and sales discounts to apply to my order. My glasses were ready on time with no issues. I will definitely be returning to this location for my next exam.

I had a Great experience today with the young lady who helped me. I have been going to lens crafters for almost 10 years and I always got the same frames. Well this year they discontinued my frame but She found them at another store in Pacifica. She special ordered them for me. Thank You for Awesome Service!

Never a bad experience here. My favorite part about this doc is how he works with you on the prescription of your glasses. A lot of doc will say "this is what the machine says, so that's what we are doing". Dr Halstrome takes your input and tries his best to get you a Rx that will work for you. Only down side is I have a wide face and most of the glasses that are sold here are for medium/narrow faces, so I have to go somewhere else for glasses. I've been a customer of his for the last 8 years, and I'll be one until he retires.
