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.

Our family has been with Dr. Kennedy for about 9 years. We always feel welcomed and taken care of. Dr. Kennedy is a terrific optometrist and we trust him completely. We appreciate his staff and their considerate and hard work. Always a great experience!

I go to Summit Vision for my eye care and contact prescriptions because I receive great attention and care there. Dr. Kennedy gets my contact prescription right the first time, and he makes helpful recommendations as I have needed bifocal lenses and supplemental glasses for computer use. The staff is friendly and helpful and respectful. I highly recommend their office and staff.

Dr. Kennedy and staff are top end providers. Personally welcoming and professional. Supported with the state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. All the experience needed to interpret the test results. Could not be more pleased and comfortable knowing my eye care is in their more than capable hands.

In my 10+ years as a patient I've always had an excellent experience. Dr Kennedy is a great doctor. He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I've never waited more than 5 minutes at the office. My kids have also been seen and they are great working with kids as well! I would highly recommend Dr. Kennedy! Kim
