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.

Jake and his team did an outstanding job with the five sets of glasses I purchased. The glasses came in within 7 days. He checked each one to make sure they fit my face correctly. I trust them and so should you.

I will never buy eyeglasses from anyone else again. If you look up "customer service" in the dictionary, you will see Lisa's picture. She is the epitome of customer care. Lisa worked a miracle to get a very difficult prescription in very short order. I am forever grateful. I researched the best places to buy eyeglasses because I had had a negative experience with one of those big chain stores and most everywhere, including AARP, had the optician connected to your optometrist near the top of the list. I am so glad I thought to go to Oconee Vision. My family is now under strict orders to only go to Lisa for their eyeglasses. Thank you, Oconee Vision. Keep up the good work!

The worst office staff I've ever dealt with. They have rescheduled my last two appointment with little or no notice. They offer no apology and try to fix it by calling to confirm your appointment on a different day and time from what you originally schedule, and their texting service confirmed. If you decline that time, they won't have any openings for 3-4 weeks. They'll mess up your insurance, forcing you to pay more out of pocket. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Most people choose to go to a small office to get better care and service. Unfortunate for Dr. Hackleman who is great his staff is awful. You might as well go to one of those chain stores. My family and I will be finding a new ophthalmologist.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hammonds for many years, and have found him to be an excellent doctor. He is thorough with the eye exams I've had, helped me know when I needed cataract surgery and listens carefully to questions I have. He keeps me informed of any problems that occur. I recommend him to anyone looking for a good eye doctor.

The doctors and staff were very pleasant and had great chair side manners, Dr. Hackleman was very thorough and explained everything well. This was my first time using Oconee Vision Group, and I will be returning in the future.
