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.

What does an optometrist do?

Functionality: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services.

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 feel the comments on here are unfair. This optical is always very busy and the staff works hard to accommodate everyone, and there is a reason why they have so many customers... because they are affordable and efficient. And the optometrist is very knowledgable and approachable. I never had a problem with an order, except once when my glasses arrived and I could not see correctly with them. They were willing to return them and order new lenses for the glasses without any problems. You also get reward points for retail purchases. Can't beat that!

The exam itself was great! The technician and the doctor were awesome! Check out left a lot to be desired. I was over charged. My vision plan insurance stated that my co-pay was to be 10 dollars for the exam. I was charged 40 dollars for the exam along with an additional 30 dollars for the "prescription". I will NEVER go to a Lenscrafters ever again! I am also contacting my bank to dispute the 70 dollar charge and get my money back. I don't like cheats or frauds.

Do yourself a favor and schedule your eye exam here! The staff and Dr. Eklund are super friendly and knowledgeable! They do a great job making sure you feel comfortable and address all your concerns. They offer retinal imaging, which is neat because you can see what the back of your eye looks like.

Pascale Spears  |  Rating: 5  |  Thornebrook Optical

Recently our ophthalmologist recommended that we go to Thornebrook Optical. We sure our thankful that she sent us to them. Frank greeted us warmly and was very attentive. My husband had a more involved prescription than normal. Frank really listened to my husband's requests. He also asked a lot of questions about different activities to insure that the glasses were perfect. A week later, Frank let us know that the glasses were ready. We went in and they were wonderful. A few adjustments had to be made and my husband couldn't be happier. I highly recommend Thornebrook sure to see Frank.

Originally booked my eye exam on Dec 10 and they have to cancel and reschedule which I can understand doctor might not be available or whatever reason might be. I rescheduled to Dec 20 at 12:45 pm. I got a call from receptionist the day before to confirm my appointment time. I went to the store at 12:30 pm and the front desk lady got into an argument with the doctor as she was on her way out for lunch that she has a customer (which is me). Then the front desk lady told me doctors don't take contact eye exam around lunch time she left me a message yesterday, my option is either to wait for doctor finish his last patient and after lunch time or reschedule. I never get no voicemail message from this place. The is the funnest joke I have heard all year. I took one day off from work for this? What kind of unprofessional eye exam place is this? What is the point of making appointment then??? Don't bother come here and waste your time.
