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 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.

Everyone at Lafayette Eye Associates is so friendly and helpful! I recently had an insurance change and they were proactive in letting me know how that would affect my visit. I appreciated the thoroughness of the whole eye exam process and the new diagnostic machines made me feel more than ever that my eye care is in very capable hands!

Their website shows that they're in-network with our vision insurance. So my wife got her exam here. When we got the bill it was surprisingly large, about $150 more than expected. Come to find out, they stopped accepting our insurance plan, never updated their site, and didn't tell her before they did the exam.

This is the most welcoming eye care office we’ve visited. While patients waited, the office was not crowded, was light and airy, the music classic rock, minimal wait. The staff, from check-in to technicians to optometry, was friendly, competent, and knowledgeable. Dr. Hamil was professional without being officious or condescending, his explanations were clear and informative; he took the time necessary to make sure we understood everything. He is also an engaging conversationalist. We recommend this practice without reservation. Sylvia and Howard, Old Town

Save yourself and don't go to this practice, I have been there about a year and a half ago and still dealing with the billing department here. It is a nightmare, at check in they got my insurance card and driver license and still managed to spell my name wrong and submit a wrong claim to insurance. After numerous attempts and after about a year they finally fixed the name, but at the same time send everything to collection. The awful part is, I haven't received any bills from them and thought everything went through insurance.

The Staff through the whole continuum of care was amazing. I’m new to contacts, and they patiently instructed me on everything I needed. I never felt rushed and I gained so much confidence in the process. The whole experience was the best I’ve ever had. They’ve set my new standard for eye care.
