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 have been using Skowron Eye Care for almost 40 years. The most knowledgeable and caring staff there could be. I have had many different stages in my life and terrible eyes through it all. Skowron has been there for me through it all. The best example I can give you of how great these people are is that the worked with the Navy while I was enlisted to help ensure that the Navy had all the correct information an could fully understand what was going on with my complex eyes. I really cant say enough good things about this business. If they aren't you eye care team you are missing out.

Dr. Skowron was very professional, polate and knowledgeable. The appointment was right on time and the staff was very polite. They helped me to choose the frames and worked with my insurance on coverages. They have very modern and sharp frames. This was not my first visit with them and I alway value the experience with this office.

I wish there was a category above excellent to describe the service we get at York Optical. When I first moved to Elmhurst 15 years ago, I had glasses from a place in the city. I sat on them and didn't know what to do. I saw York Optical and hoped they would take pity on me. My glasses were repaired free of charge. With five members of my family wearing glasses, we have purchase many pairs over the years. The service is always excellent and the frames available for purchase are pretty nice, too.

I started with Dr. Mark Skowron since he started. He prescribed contacts and glasses for about 10 years until my eyesight corrected back to 20/20. He has helped my family and even guided my son’s baseball accident successfully. He genuinely cares for his patients and is a good and honest man. Now for the best part- Dr. Mark Skowron's daughter is taking over the family business. At age 60 I contracted cataracts and had to enlist the services of Dr. Michelle Skowron. She expedited my surgery successfully and without a hitch. She has all her father’s best attributes plus she knows how the current medical business is conducted. She will will answer any question you may have and actually seems excited to teach you a thing or two. I would never go to any other eye doctor ever. Skowron Eye Center is the Best!

I have been purchasing glasses at York Optical for years. They are very caring, and experts in their field. They also have a large selection of designer frames that you do not find at the local chains. It is also great to support our local businesses. I highly recommend York Optical. Kathleen G
