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've been seeing Dr. Lee and Dr. Yoo for several years now. Every time I go the staff is very friendly and professional. Dr. Lee is always kind and patient and answers all of my questions. The location is clean, they accepted my insurance, and had a bunch of choices of high end glasses. This location is owned by two married Optometrists. Both are super patient and explain every step they are doing and take their time with me to explain everything in a manner I can understand. Parking is great and I've always seen the Drs. at my appointment time, not 10 minutes after, not 60 minutes after. One can really appreciate that versus a Target or Costco optometrist center. I'd highly recommend them!

I saw Dr. Hirano for the first time last month, and my experience with him has been excellent. His office has all the latest equipment, and he was efficient and courteous. His office staff are all very nice and helpful. I will be returning.

I forgot what what a caring staff feels like. I left Dr. Hirano down the street after dealing with his a hole staff and games they play to cover up their mistakes and unprofessional behavior. What a difference in service and pricing. I feel like that the staff understand the value and preciousness of sight and they want me to treat it as a gift rather than see me as a walking money sign or insurance claim payment. This is the first time a doctor tried talking me out of spending money on an unnecessary test or a useless prescription; when does that happen? The three extra miles I drive here is well worth it in saving time and money. I rarely post reviews but I feel others should know that they don't have to put up with the bs I did and there are other quality options.

Highly recommend Oaks Optometric Center. I live about 50 miles away but don't mind driving out there at all because of how good my experience has been with this establishment. There office is very nice and outstandingly clean. They have a great selection of frames. The staff that works there is extremely knowledgeable and super polite. Both the Doctors are incredibly thorough with the examinations, fittings, explanations, etc. They take very good care of you at this particular office and I had the best experience here then I have had at any other Optometry I have visited. I urge everyone to go if you are considering Oaks Optometric Center. You will not be disappointed.
