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.

What does an optometrist do?

Functionality: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services. Include: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services.

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 went in for an eye exam today. The entire staff was really good and provided a great service. I will go back there anytime. Highly recommend to anyone with medi-cal, looking for exam and glasses

I love how everyone at the store was really welcoming and nice and helped you find specific frames. It was also really nice to feel very comfortable when doing my eye exam because they gave a good in depth of my eye health and ways to continue being health.

After not having an eye exam for quite a while, Dr.Whitney Ng and his amazing staff made my visit a really wholesome experience, far better than all the eye exams i've had in quite a while.. definitely looking forward to my next visit. (Thumbs up)

I got my vision checked here. They recommended progressive lenses for me. I resisted the recommendation, but they said that if the progressive lenses didn't work out that they'd put regular lenses in for no charge. The progressive lenses didn't work out. I went back and asked for regular lenses. They said, "you'll have to have a new eye exam so we can get the correct prescription for regular lenses." Okay, but then they would not schedule an appointment for me at a convenient time. I tried 4 times to schedule and 4 times "the doctor is very busy this week." So, I'm out $1,000 for a set of glasses that they upsold me on and they are not honoring the "free set of lenses if the progress lenses don't work out" statement. Stay away from these folks... there are plenty of other places on Geary.

Went in for a regular checkup and received great service! The staff was friendly and Dr. Sanchez was very knowledgable. She explained all tests and results in detail and answered all of my questions. I ordered contacts which weren't in stock and when they called to let me know they were in, they offered to accommodate my work schedule so I could pick them up after business hours. I give this location and staff two thumbs up!
