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.

After years of not going to the eye doctor, I finally went in. I decided to go see Dr. Poolsaad and could not have had a better experience! He is extremely friendly and down to Earth! And his staff was extremely friendly and helpful! I definitely will be recommending others to go see him as well.

I've been going to the vision center for over 20 years and they have always taken care of my vision needs. Staff is great! My kids and my grandkids go there as well. Would recommend to everyone. Excellent service.

I appreciate the ease of making appointments. And the reminders are nice. Staff is courteous and appointments are always on time. I appreciate Dr. Ardaya taking the time to explain the results of the eye screening tests. I have been going to Golden Ops for decades and would recommend.

The staff is friendly and very helpful! Dr. Ardaya is one in a million! He is very knowledgeable and caring! I appreciate how they are always able to see me fairly quickly if I have a special need or an eye emergency.
