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.

I broke a pair of expensive reading glasses and the place I bought them couldn't repair them. They recommend whites. I stopped in and the gentleman repaired them on the spot within about 10-15 minutes for only $5. You just don't see service like that anymore.

From the time of first entering, thru exam process, and making glasses selection, it was a flawless experience. I have never been treated in a more professional, but friendly, caring manner. I wish I could say all my medical, vision visits could have lived up to how I was treated at FVC. Definitely, this practice rates 5 stars+++

I came 1/2 hr early. Straight from Wk. I did not verify my appointment. I am older and I thought my word was good. I Did not know I would be canceled. So I was canceled by a rude dark haired older lady. I left and I went to 2020 eyeglass superstore in Melbourne even though I live on Merritt Island. They were nice. Worth the trip. I get my glasses tomorrow. 20 yrs ago this store was rude to me.but I still went back. They are still rude. I am African American. Is that still a problem? I came in 20 min. before my husband who was white 20 yrs ago. No one spoke to me. He walked in and 2 people came to help him. Maybe the Merritt Island store needs some sensitivity training. Or fire some people. Maybe that store will close because more people like me will share their experiences. All my friends are white. I tell all of them to stay away.

Very customer friendly office. Dr Santisi is a knowledgeable, informed professional. My experiences here have been nothing other than satisfying. I am confident each year I will receive top notch care from this office. I have referred several new patients and they too express their satisfaction with this office.

What an excellent experience! Ran over rmy glasses this morning, spent all day looking for my vision benefits all to find out I had the hazard insurance on my glasses. So instead of spending $600 I just paid the deductible of $50. Best part glasses were ready in under 30 mins. I'll be back each time my family needs new frames now, thank you so much!
