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.

Went in for my eye exam with Dr. Cañas last week, she was excellent. She explained everything thoroughly, was very professional and friendly. Definitely planning on getting my eye exam with her next year.

This is a wonderful office. I've gone to places like VisionWorks and America's Best in the past but I will never go back. The front office was very warm and welcoming. I expressed concerns about my previous visits and my prescriptions and my doctor took the time to explain everything and make sure we were on the same page. Very satisfied with my visit today.

So far my experience with this office has been excellent! The people of the optometry department were super helpful in picking out my glasses and sunglasses. I highly recommend them if you're looking for a new eye doctor/ optometrist. I can't speak any more highly of them!

My husband and I have been getting our glasses at Family Eyecare of Brighton for many years. There's not an unfriendly person there. Kellie and Gil are great at customer service and do a professional job. My husband gets the same frames every time and like to be in an out quickly. They accommodate him well! For me, it's a long process to decide what frame I want. They accommodate me as well! As a matter of fact, Gil will be brutally honest and actually tell me if a frame doesn't look good on me! In all honesty, I really appreciate that. We do and have recommended them!
