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.

What is the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

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 couldn't have asked for better service! Magdy is incredibly knowledgeable and took the time to help me find the right glasses. And there are a wide variety of styles! Both times I've had an exam there, the doctors were informative and explained to me a bit about how the eyes function. It was refreshing to not feel like they want to rush you out. Rather, they care to provide quality service. Highly recommended!

I cannot express enough how grateful I am for finding the Midwestern Eye Institute and Dr. Jenelle Mallios. We had been seeing a private eye clinic for years, my 6 year daughter was given eye glasses. However, struggling with reading and complaining of headaches through all of 1st grade I was at a loss. We checked the glasses numerous times, then we thought headaches were a result of diet or the masks. As the year went on it became worse and she was in the nurses office many times complaining of frontal lobe headaches. When she came home she was fine, so then we thought it was excuses to get out of school. Until we found Dr. Mallios and she diagnosed her with Convergence Insufficiency, where the muscles do not come and stay together at one point as they should. Everything all makes sense now, the headaches and the struggle to read and stay focused for periods of time. The blessing, this is now easily corrected with a few months of vision therapy! I cannot recommend this place enough, the extensive testing and many questions they ask throughout the exam is very different than any other clinic/office I have visited. Take your kids here you never know what you are missing!

Dr. Robert’s team was able to get me in on very short notice. The entire staff is extremely professional. They have state of the art equipment to check on the health of my eyes. Dr. Robert spent a considerable amount of time with me answering my questions and helping me find a solution to my needs. I left the office with a couple of options to try so we can determine what works best. I so appreciate the one on one experience and how Dr. Robert listened to my concerns. Thank you!

Through all the moving I have done over the last 13 years and I still continue to see my doctor here. I always feel I am in good hands with the staff. The office has done a great job at taking precautions during this "flu season" so you can still continue to get your medical needs attended to and feel very safe. Their optical shop has an amazing selection to choose from and they do what they can to track down your ideal pair. I fully understand that good healthcare can take longer than expected, but if you are a newer patient, prepare yourself for some wait times, but I think the quality of service this facility delivers is always worth the wait. The whole place is very clean and caring staff.
