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.

Woooow! What a great experience. Robert was so friendly and greeted us the second we walked into the door. I'm HORRIBLE at picking frames and the first place I went to never helped me so I literally had NO idea what I was doing. Robert helped me pick frames and explained why they were a good fit for my face and patiently brought me a few pairs until I found one I was happy with. I also learned they do eye exams on the spot! Which is something I will take advantage of next time I go. Sandy was incredible with adjusting our frames and the support with insurance. He even remembered us by name weeks after our initial order! Amazing store and great staff! I'm actually excited to return and pick a pair out next year!

I had an appointment today, that was canceled TODAY. I confirmed yesterday about my son’s appointment and the office told me there would be two doctors! Now with less then 4 hours until my appointment they cancel it. I had to move my schedule around just to make this appointment. They never answer their phones. They are the worst. Don’t waste your time in this dump

Went here for a contact lens exam by recommendation of a friend. We had very different experiences. The doctor who performed my exam lacked bedside manner and was just unprofessional. The rest of the staff is mostly unpleasant, unfriendly, and unapproachable. I received a trial pair of contact lenses and am “required” to go back for a follow up before she’ll give me the prescription. I’ve been wearing contacts for years and have never been told this before.

Highly recommend Dr. Easton and his entire team! The whole office is very professional and well run. Dr. Easton takes his time and answers all questions and concerns. You feel like a part of the family when you enter the office. Gloria is amazing as well and gives top notch customer service and personal touch in selecting frames.

Service was not bad however staff and doctor are completely deceitful and just want your money. I called ahead of time to make sure they took my insurance and could make an appointment. The receptionist took my information and told me she would check and call me back. (No big deal right?) She called me back shortly after to let me know that they do take my insurance but it would take two weeks to be seen. (It’s a panemic of course eye doctors are going to be backed up right?) Now comes the day of my appointment I show up fill out the forms and give her my ID as well as the filled out forms and my insurance card. She tells me I am all set and they take me back right away. (That’s great what good customer service I’m thinking) Upon completing my exam the Dr proceeds to tell me that they can’t take my insurance for the actual glasses and lenses that I would have to pay out of pocket and to maybe call my insurance to see if I can get a $30 credit.I explained that I never heard of such a thing and after questioning him he finally told me that I could get glasses through my insurance but would have to go somewhere else.... now I’m confused you take my insurance but only for the exam? Regardless i was told to head to the front to pay my deductible when I got up front the receptions asked me for $60. I have had vision insurance for years and never paid more then $10 for a routine eye exam but at the time I was quite baffled and am not confrontational so I paid the $60. (My insurance had changed since last visit maybe the pricing did too) After leaving I called another eye doctor about coming in to get glasses explaining my situation that I had just had an exam and had a prescription but they would not take the insurance to get the glasses. The new receptionist took my info and right away said come on by we can help you. I arrived at the second eye doctors and when I explained the whole story she was quite baffled as well telling me my insurance deductible was only $10 and I should have never paid $60. Once I arrived home I called my insurance company to see what had happened. When I spoke to a representative I was told that the original eye doctor did not charge my eye insurance and charged my actual medical as if I went to see a specialist. So now not only will this Dr. get more money from my insurance they got an extra $50 from me. Complete fraud in my opinion. I did not see a specialist I got a routine eye exam. Looking further into the business they are only open 3 days a week and now I know why they can afford that. Do not let these people take your money! It’s bad enough how times are and to take advantage of someone is completely ruthless and despicable.
