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.

Great place at Target. I been bringing my kids here to this target optometrist. She is so sweet and so patient. My daughter got her first contact lenses and they were so patient with her. Thank you so much.

Kathy was very knowledgeable and helpful. She helped my daughter find the perfect size of sport googles and even adjusted her current glasses that she came in with. Very kind and sweet. Appreciate her patience with trying to figure out how to process an online return that had the incorrect prescription.

We have always been very pleased with our experiences with Dr. K we've been seeing him for over 10 yrs. We love his staff and never had any problems. I scheduled an appointment for my daughter with Dr. K, but as it turned out she did not see him. Last Friday the office was slammed with patients. We were NEVER informed of a delay nor that we were NOT going to see Dr. K. That was a bit disappointing since we have high regards and recommended his services to friends and family. We were called in and to our surprise it was NOT Dr. K. The other doctor was very nice, but a bit rushed. Just wondering now how to schedule an appointment with Dr K. if specifically asking for him doesn't work or you might have to wait hours to see him. Really disappointed, Good Luck y'all.

I would give this place negative stars if I could simply because Dr Kim was very unprofessional and would not listen to what I had to say. She didn’t even know I was already a patient at her office. If she would have checked my chart like a good doctor would she would have already known my prior issues. When she would switch the lenses during the checkup she didn’t even know what number she was on. I don’t feel confident I got the right prescription for my eyes. I was one point away from getting my prescription covered by my insurance but she was forcing my answers for example she would say number 3 and 4 look similar right even though they looked different to me. When I told her they looked different she would just tell me my eyes were sensitive and move on to the next one. At the end of the exam she tried to tell me people with the same prescription as me are fine so I will not need any medication for the headaches I get or the sharp pain I feel behind my eye. She was not helpful at all and now I have to contact my insurance to clear this exam to take another one if possible. She has no manners and does not know how to talk to her patients. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anybody there are tons of other optometrists who can treat you with respect and get you the help you need.

Dr. Terzian's office is THE BEST! He has a very friendly staff. Dr. Terzian was kind and thorough during the exam. Everything was clean and tidy! And the frame selection is endless. Lots of designer to choose from. :)
