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.

Review readers! I typically don’t write reviews because they can be one sided. However, I had to write this one because of the poor customer service and the gross misconduct of the staff. I made my appointment for 11am. I sat in their lobby patiently waiting..... and waiting.... by 11:30 they were still not acknowledging my presence after I had told them what time my appointment was and still crickets. Another lady came in and she was about to be taken back when she stated her appointment was at 11:30. I finally stood up and told the receptionist that my appointment was before hers. She looked at the computer and was like no it’s at 11:30a. I told her I’m sorry I have an emailed confirming my appointment time. She blankly stared at me and was annoyed. I finally saw the optometrist and he was nice and personable. When I went to checked out the same rude receptionist was going to charge me for an out of pocket expense when I have vision insurance and it was confirmed at the time the appointment was made. The receptionist was unpleasant and unprofessional. Fast forward months later. I go to get my eyeglasses fill and the prescription provide is wrong and that it’s impossible for cylinder prescription to be positive and negative. It either has to be both positive or both negative. I had to have a new appointment at another optometrist to correct the error. This is unacceptable.

I really enjoy the quality of care here. Dr. Edwards is a very nice doctor who answers all questions and really has excellent bedside manner. My only complaint is that you are never given your prescription unless you very directly ask for a copy. I always forget - I assume the paper receipt they give you has the prescription on it - and have to go back to get it. I understand they try to sell glasses also and don't want customers taking the prescriptions to cheaper options, but it sure is a PITA to have to find time to go back to get a copy of my actual prescription.

Dr. Gregory Scott Wright cares for his patients and takes his time with you. Both my boyfriend and I have seen him for eye emergencies. He is gentle and thorough and does follow up appointments with you to make sure your eye is healing properly and is open and honest about cost of medicine before you go to the pharmacy and helps you find the most cost efficient options. I would recommend everyone to him.

This was my first time visiting the office. My normal eye care place was closed for training the entire week. However, I needed to be seen for an urgent matter, and so was referred to Edwards Eye Care for an appointment. To say I was satisfied with my visit would be a complete understatement. I was BEYOND impressed with the level of customer service and professionalism that was provided to me as a first time patient. Everyone within the office was absolutely welcoming, timely, and courteous. Dr. Edwards himself was extremely friendly and actually listened to my concerns regarding the issues I was experiencing with my eye. He seemed genuinely interested in ensuring that I had a positive experience as a patient. Specifically, he took the time to review, in detail, the photos that were taken of each eye; thoroughly discussed the potential eye problem that had initially raised my concerns and led to my scheduling an appointment; and, conducted a very comprehensive examination to rule out any other eye conditions. I had left the office feeling assured that my concerns had been fully addressed. Overall, I’d definitely recommend Dr. Edwards and his services. In my opinion, he and his team are 100% outstanding. (And to be quite frank, based on my recent experience here, I am currently considering a switch of eye care providers!)

I absolutely loved the doctor that conducted my exam. Very nice and professional, even over a computer monitor. The rest of the staff? NOPE. I was refused a written prescription, not informed of services they performed without my consent, and also not informed that they don't take secondary insurances. Which, in fact, they apparently do? At least thats what I was told when the manager called me. To top it all off, I never asked for the manager, but staff made it a point to inform me their manager was too busy to call the Dr I had just seen 10 minutes prior and verify my prescription? Never had this happen in all my years of contact and glasses wearing. America's Best? More like America's Worst. (HA. GOT EM)
