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.

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.

Its rare for me to give a 5 star rating, I was referred to serge by a friend and wow! This man is knows his stuff even when the prescription was wrong because the "EYE DOCTOR" got it wrong! He was able to make it right with out fancy high tech instruments that the DR. had that alone sold me right there. Hiss customer service was stellar even with impatient self entitled customers that were having tantrums because there was a wait serge kept it 100% pro the whole time. You have a customer for life I don't care about the drive 1 hour drive from Azusa even when I have an optics store 5 minutes from my house you sir are worth the drive

I have been going to Serge for the last 15 years, and he has always been the most pleasant person to work with. Him and Sam are true gentleman, and they both understand what it takes to make a client happy. My interactions with Serge are simple. I walk in, tell him whether I want Sunglasses or Eye Glasses, he gives me a few to try on, and I usually leave with the first one he gives me. Lets not forget how the prices at Optical Time are phenomenal compared to many other stores on the boulevard. If you want to get the best you go to the best! Serge and Optical Time always deliver. Thank you guys for always taking care of me! -Joseph

Serge was wonderful! My friend Candy took me there when I came to visit from Georgia with my daughter for college. We needed to get new glasses for myself and her. He was very good to us! I love the store and serge! I would recommend anyone to go there and challeng anyone to go somewhere and get better service. I will never go anywhere else to buy glasses ever! I look forward to going back to LA just to go there to buy moe shades. Thank you Serge for being so good to us! You have my business for life! I will be calling to get new pair for Hawaii next week! Can't wait!

I found Dr. Shirazian's office about ten years ago and never looked back. He is the only optometrist I have met who is not only extremely knowledgeable, but also takes the time to listen to my concerns. Prior to going to this dr, I always had issues with my contacts, which were never addressed. My prescriptions were also inaccurate, which caused headaches and discomfort. Dr. Shirazian took care of everything and has always been very reasonable, cost-wise. Staff and the Dr. are always welcoming and courteous. Highly recommend!
