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.

Moon Girl  |  Rating: 5  |  Tribury Eye Care (Former office of Kenneth Burke, OD)

Dr. Burke is the best! I explained to him over the phone what was wrong with my eye, and he told me how to take care of it, prescribed an antibiotic ointment, and we chatted a bit. My eye is so much better after just one day and Dr. Burke said he'd call me to check my progress. Thank you Dr. Burke!

Dr. Burke has been my optometrist since 1984! For the past 15 years I have lived in Florida, but I still get my check ups from Dr. Burke when I visit my daughters in Connecticut, and I choose to do this because I have not had an eye exam in Floor which even comes close to the thoroughness that is Dr. Burke's hallmark. Wonderful staff also!

Dr. Burke was truly interested in finding the best solution for my sight problems. Thorough and a good communicator. Very professional with a staff just as professional and caring. A real find and I would surely recommend to anyone looking for an eye care practice.


Dr. Cora Stover  |  Rating: 5  |  Tribury Eye Care (Former office of Kenneth Burke, OD)

We enjoyed this office very much (my six year old said it was awesome and did a dance with a thumbs up at the end). I recommend it for all people. The approach is thorough. I brought myself and three young children, they played, in the waiting area, while waiting for my appointment they assisted With picking out my glasses. They preformed tests that most doctors have failed to preform. I highly recommend for all children especially those who might be slower to learn, have ADHD/ADD, dyslexia, focusing issues, and for people who have trouble going from paper to distance (such as in a classroom). Very happy with this experience. We will be going here from now on. Thank you Dr. Burke!

I am so grateful for the competent and intuitive care that I received from Dr Burke. Having an urgent problem they were able to accommodate me in a timely manner. Although I may have interrupted Dr Burke's normal schedule you would never know it by the quality of care and time he took to help me out. I am truly grateful and relieved to know that there is still the type of practices that take the time and interest to provide appropriate care in timely manner. Much Appreciated Dr Lepore
