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. Wampler is the best. He is professional and diagnosed my glaucoma before it became severe. I get my glasses, the newest version and they are exactly what I want and need. So many choices and very reasonable. I drive from Davis for ten years. Before that he was my doctor in W. Sacramento before I an remember. Always satisfied, I got the best treatment and eye exams. I'm very happy he's my optometrist. This is the best place for eye health anywhere. Thanks Dr. Wampler.

The office staff is friendly and accommodating! Always willing to assist Dr’s very thorough, verifying that you are getting all the information you need about your eyes to make educated decisions! I’ve been seeing these folks for over 10 years and have never been disappointed!

I've been going to Dry Wampler for over 20yrs. The opticians are rude and grouchy not at all helpful, it has changed drastically through the years. The Dr's are great and experienced, get your exam there but get your glasses elsewhere

Excellent service and good pricing. Dr. Wampler is wonderful to work with. He made me feel comfortable and explained everything in understandable detail. The opticians are great and helped me pick frames and what extras were best for me on my lenses without suggesting more than I needed or could afford. I recommend them to all my friends and family.

The team was very friendly, welcoming, and efficient! I had a great visit. I especially appreciated them being able to see me the day after I called for an appointment, though that was mostly due to luck with cancellations.
