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.

Mollie Loiselle  |  Rating: 1  |  Target Optical

I rarely write reviews but was very frustrated with my recent target optical experience regarding an error in my contact order with the store manager at this location. I’ve always thought target exemplifies exceptional customer service, but was sadly disappointed by this manager and target optical’s customer resolution team and don’t plan to continue optical services with target in the future.

Michelle and Diane are two of the nicest and most accommodating people anyone could meet. When my glasses broke, Michelle was able to fix them with some spare parts—saving me the cost of buying new glasses. And, when my wife decided to buy new glasses, both women were so knowledgeable and helpful about the style and fit that would look great and meet her needs. It is good to see these new young owners work so hard for their customers. We will definitely come back again!

Dr. Timothy was awesome. Super nice and helpful during my eye exam. Explained everything so I could understand what the numbers meant and answered all my extra questions! Will definitely go back for my next exam and will recommend him to friends and family!

Excellent experience. Dr. Buydos truly cares and takes pride in his work. Everyone in the office is pleasant and very caring to those in the wait room. You can tell that everyone enjoys where they work.

Always a clean and Profesional environment. Staff is so welcoming and friendly, always doing everything they can to make us happy. My kids always feel at ease coming to their eye appointments. We are always seen at the time of our appointment no long waits. When my son's glasses have broke they are so quick and accommodating to fix them. Not only would I recommend this place to family and friends but I already have.
