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.

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.

Appointment was on time and the staff was friendly, courteous, professional and helpful. I was in and out of the exam fairly quickly and was able to order and be fitted for new glasses. The only disappointment was that my lenses weren't in stock so instead of being able to get them in a day or so, it'll be a couple of weeks. But I know that it's hard to have every single prescription in stock at all times so I am good with the wait.

Every staff member that I interacted with was nice and professional. The doctor was great too. I was very impressed with the customer service I received and would definitely recommend it to my friends and family.

20/10. I really had a great experience at this LensCrafters. Everyone was highly professional, knew exactly what they were doing, and simply got things done. They made the environment so friendly, welcoming, and very comfortable to be in. The first time I came in, I had my pre-test done by Crystal, who was extremely patient with me during the whole process, especially when conducting the eye puff test thingy. That test always makes me jump 5 feet in the air. It was a joy to interact with her and she has some of the best nails I have ever seen. Alex helped tie up some loose ends related to the puff test before my eye exam during my second appointment. She as well was very patient and delightful to work with. Dr. Mewes did my eye exam and made the information presented to me simple and easy to understand. She made the whole process seamless, and I was very impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. Rhonda helped me with scheduling follow-ups and purchasing a few other items. I was interested in getting sunglasses that would cut the most glare, and she pointed out which lens shades and coatings would work best for that. I will certainly use what she informed me about again in the future. Sonia helped me with picking the frames for the shades that I wanted. She had no problem taking all the time needed to ensure I got what I was looking for and gave me many helpful suggestions along the way. The pair I picked up are absolutely the best sunglasses I have ever had so far. Her guidance, combined with Rhonda’s, certainly enabled that, and I couldn’t be happier. She also definitely knows what she is doing when it comes to adjusting frames to get that perfect fit. Life changing! Everyone went the extra mile to get all the things I needed and wanted, and I cannot adequately express my appreciation for that. I believe everyone I mentioned was who worked with me, and if I left anyone out, I apologize. I find it amazing that LensCrafters can provide everything necessary for getting new glasses. From testing to frames, it all happens right there, which is very nice for simplifying an experience from start to finish. If you need new glasses, go to them! I cannot thank them enough for everything they did, and I hope what I wrote illustrates that.

I and my family have all been patients of Dr. Prewett since 2003. Besides having the best quality of lenses and frames that make us see great and look great, he has truly set the highest standard of care I've ever seen in an eye doctor. Plus the current staff at the Grover Beach office are friendly and helpful (shout-out to Joanna, Senneca, and Emma!). I recommend him to everyone in the Santa Maria/ Five Cities areas!

The customer service is terrible. Mayra, the girl who answers the phone has the worst reactions and responses to customer concerns. Dr.Prewitt refused to see me a few minutes after my scheduled appointment because he did not want to leave at 5:15 which is late for him apparently. I am very upset with the service I've received so I will definitely be switching doctors!
