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 an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

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.

I recommend tthis new clean eye care center to all. The staff is so helpful and greet you with a positive friendly attitude.. I was checked in and seen not more than 10 minutes of waiting on the optometrist. She was so friendly and made me feel at home. She is efficient, helpful, friendly and good at her job. This place is amazing and has a great selection of glasses of all insurance carriers They make sure your glasses will be a perfect fit for you. They want you to look great. They show you the glasses within your insurance allowance. They want what is best for the patient. There not there to pull you in. I have a perfect fitting frame without costing me money. I love the frame and cant wait for my glasses to arrive

The staff there is fantastic, the selection of frames are huge, and the examination equipment is state of the art. I have been there for the past 30+ years and I would not trust anyone else with my eyes. They are really the best in town and anywhere in the area. They know you and make you feel like family there. They have my 100% trust.

The eye Dr. at the Wal-Mart in Southington was not personable at all and I felt so rushed. $109.00 for a 6 minute exam. Asked me a question and while I was answering him he interrupted me and asked me another. I only spoke 5 words. Seemed very rude to me. After the exam I was treated like I was an idiot. If it was not for Elizabeth, the technician I would have walked out. She is amazing! I will be back for glasses but never again for an exam.

I was recommended to Eye Life Vision Center by a friend. By far the best experience I have ever had! Dr. Julie Sheen is the best! She explained everything and was so thorough. The office is immaculate and they have all the newest equipment. The staff is so friendly. The absolute best part is she corrected my eye condition. I have dry eye disease! I’m finally feeling great again .. Thank you Dr. Sheen - and I got a very cool pair of glasses!
