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 am a terrible patient and have not been for my checkup since 2017…story short I had a bit of an emergency and was able to get an appointment same day with Dr Smith! The whole staff is very personable making you very comfortable! I was thrilled to see Dr Smith since he comes very highly recommended by another very impressive doctor! He does not disappoint! He took very very good care of me! Thank you!

I’ve been going to a target optical for many years and never had any complaints. However, when my daughter needed glasses I decided to go to Bowman Optometry which was highly recommended by our pediatricians. I am so happy I did because I did not realize how big of a difference this experience could be! Not only are the staff very professional and lovely people; their equipment is far more advanced, the office very organized and efficient, and the selection of glasses are way more diverse in styles/colors with many beautiful options. Dr. Smith is amazing with children, kind, and patient. He is also very thorough and knowledgeable with both our exams. The whole staff was incredible. Very accommodating, and had the best personalities! During my exam when my babies (2 under 2) were getting fussy, they didn’t hesitate to help me sooth and/or entertain them… my kids loved them! They made the best first impression, I honestly don’t think any other office can compare in all of Northeast Florida. We will be recommending them to all our friends and family for sure!
