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've been seeing Dr. Chiem and her staff for years, and they've always provided incredible service in a clean and comfortable environment that I can trust! They're always friendly, courteous, and approach every communication (in person, phone, and email) with the utmost professionalism. They are proactive in their appointment reminders and are knowledgeable in their recommendations. Dr. Chiem is very detailed and efficient with the eye exams, and yet, I never feel rushed. Simply put, Dr. Chiem and her team are awesome!

I have never had such a nice and patient sales rep like Ricky. I brought my 97 years old father to the store. Ricky took care of my father in every step. I appreciate his service greatly. Thank you very much, Ricky!

Staff was very kind, attentive, and informative with my sister's eye examination. They were patient with her and asked her if she needed breaks. Even after closing at 2pm, they continued to help her pick out frames and glasses!

The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's weird that the location is in a mall, but once you go back to the actual doctor's office to get your eye exam, it feels more like an actual office than the mall. The only part that is directly open to the mall is where they sell glasses. Dr. Sabbah is very nice and very professional. I plan on coming back to see him again.

Dr. Susie Lee is great! Really thorough and accessible--she took her time to make sure she got my prescription right and fully explained my different options. One thing that really stood out as an example of how she goes above and beyond: Typically, the contact lens companies make you jump through a bunch of hoops to get your rebate, but Dr. Lee made it very easy by mailing me all the printed forms and even including a stamped envelope I could drop in the mail to the contact company. Really appreciated that!
