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.

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.

Never ever vist this store if you VALUE TIME and seek for QUALITY. 1. For frame fix, they scratched and damaged both the lenses. 2. Again reorder to get with new lenses with frame. 3. Double time waste and without glasses for more than a month. 4. They are NOT flexible with timings and don't open on Saturdays or Sunday. If you miss to go by Friday 5 PM, then wait till next Monday. Frustrated customer and this will be one last time visit to pick up the glasses.

Eyeglass Place has a wonderful selection of frames, many of which I haven’t seen anywhere else. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly; they make the shopping experience fun. My favorite shopping experience by far in any category

My appointment today was with Dr. Brown. I had a fabulous experience with her and all of the staff. They all were friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. Dr. Brown was extremely knowledgeable as well and put me at ease during my appointment.

My 7 year old daughter was having trouble with her vision. I shopped around and found The Eyeglass Place. Linea was friendly and very helpful. Her knowledge about quality and style helped us find the perfect pair of glasses my daughter now enjoys wearing. I highly recommend this place.

I went to Walmart in Newington, (first time ever using them for my optical care)I was helped by a man named Christopher who was super helpful! He took the time to call my insurance company to get things straightened out and then time to help me find a pair of glasses. With Covid, you're not allowed to bring anyone in with you for help in picking out a pair, but Christopher took the time to help! I'm super picky with glasses as I wear contacts & haven't had a pair of glasses in YEARS but we were able to pick out a pair I LOVED and withith a good price range! I walked out very satisfied and actually excited for my new glasses.
