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 had an Eye Exam at 10:15 on Thursday (4/29). Dr. Kim was sweet and extremely helpful. I started wearing contacts about 15 years ago and I was pretty excited about walking away with some new tips. The new assistant was great, she was super kind and professional. I felt comfortable at this location. I knew right when the appointment started that I was in good hands. Thank you so much for everything. Congrats on being at your location for so many years!

I went here for the first time about a week ago & had an exceptional experience. Ann answered all my questions with patience and knowledge. I found frames I liked within minutes. They have a really good selection, and she also helped me in finding contacts that'll meet my needs, which is still in the works. The major plus is she took her time. & I didn't feel rushed like i did at kaiser. I definitely plan on returning for future prescription needs! Thank you!

I had to wait 30 min after appointment time even though I came in 10 min earlier. It was unprofessional. The staff was rude and not helpful when asked to try on frames. My guess was that they had to sanitize the frames after they are being touched as there were a few in a sanitized box which beeped while I was waiting. The staff appeared unhappy with their job. Everybody wore a mask but I could tell the demeanor, tone of voice, and partial facial expression. The only smile I noticed was when the optometrist came out to tell one of the staff members to collect my copay and small chatted. There weren’t many styles in their frame selection. The exam seemed rush within 15 min whereas the prior patient was in the room before I even got there. I came here 4-5 years ago. It was fine then, now it seems like Covid has made it worse. With this recent experience, I wouldn’t go back or recommend this place.

Honestly felt like I was about to get ripped off! Went here to use my vsp before the end of the calendar year. I just wanted to get the usual rays w/ transition. I wanted the most basic lense since I have 5 other glasses I can alternate with. The frame was 148?..and the lenses were 170! And, I just use single vision lenses! I asked for the most basic lense and he told me that they start at 170 up to 280! Never heard that before. Last year in Washington, I used my vsp at a different retail store for glasses with basic lense which were only 25 per lense. I didn't feel comfortable buying from this walmart optical so I went to an actual eye clinic and got the newest ray ban model with transition far from the price walmart optical was going to charge me. Such a pity.

I had a great experience! This was the first time I have gotten contacts so I was a little nervous being that I have never put them in. They were all very encouraging and I never felt rushed. Very professional and friendly staff! A big Thank You to the doctor and her staff!
