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.

The staff and Dr Hunt were all very friendly and probably one of the best eye exams I've ever had. I didn't feel rushed, which was nice for a change. The office was very nice and felt like a medical office and not like a typical eye glass place. I would definitely recommend this place!

I was there in April and had an amazing experience. Hugest shout out to Janisa who spent a ridiculous amount of time helping me find glasses I liked. She was not bothered by me and in fact laughed along with me when needed. She was honest in helping me find a pair of love rather than agreeing with an unflattering pair to finish the job. I has the glasses mailed to me as I live out of state where we don’t have a store. When I had a few questions I called and Kelsey was so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this particular store.

The Center for Sight and Melissa Hammond exceeded my expectations. The facility was clean and up to date, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Any questions I asked were answered. Most of all the first trial lenses suggested (which I picked up in 2 days!) really made a great positive difference! Thank you Melissa Hammond and the staff at CFS!

The staff here are very nice and professional. I have never had to wait a long time for the appointment and the professional treating you explains everything in detail and answers any questions you may have. I would definitely recommend this practice.

I had a top notch experience here and would recommend to friends and family. The scheduling process was seamless, they have the best quality and selection to pick from with amazing deals. All of my questions were answered thoroughly by everyone there and I was impressed by how detailed my exam was. I was especially impressed with Kelsey and how she was patient and went out of her way to deliver top tier customer satisfaction.
