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.

Dr. Toan Nguyen is a great doctor. Every visit to San Marino Optometry has been a pleasant experience. Dr is patient friendly; he takes time to listen and to explain his diagnosis and/or treatment plans. Office staff is very helpful and understanding. It is the best optometry office in SG Valley, so glad I found Dr. Nguyen to take care of my vision problems.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff was absolutely wonderful. We came in as a family of 5 and he made sure my children were comfortable throughout the exam. Dr. Nguyen was very thorough as well as informative. I am so happy to have found them.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are amazing! They are incredibly patient, thoughtful, and knowledgeable—the front staff worked with me to determine what my insurance was and what my insurance covered, and even helped me pick out frames that work for my face. I absolutely recommend San Marino Optometry.

Dr. Nguyen is professional, caring and an extraordinarily terrific optometrist. I’ve visited many other optometrists over the years, and all have fallen short in some way-not Dr. Nguyen. He recommended that I seek an opinion on lens transplants which I did and for the past 2 years have had no need for corrective lenses. But more than that, it’s really the ordinary things I appreciate the most; an extraordinary office staff, thorough annual examinations, explanations about eye health, and extraordinary customer service. I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen and his team.

Dr Nguyen's team were nice and professional. They have a great selection of frames and are great at making adjustments, so the fit is just right. I have been going to San Marino Optometry for years and will continue to do so.
