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 had a scheduled appointment as was seen immediately. Time is of the essence these days and that was very important to me. Dr.Khan is extremely thorough and took her time to ensure that the exam was properly done! The staff is great! Steven & Marty were very helpful and kind. They both assisted with the pre-exam testing and also helping me pick out my new glasses and provided honest feedback. Greatly appreciated!

I visited this location this past Saturday, and I couldn't have been happier with my experience! I was assisted by Serg (Sergio), who went above and beyond with customer service! I am so grateful for his recommendations! Without his help, I wouldn't have found the perfect match! Serg if you are reading this, thank you so much for all that you do! I can't wait to wear my new pair, thanks to you!

I loved my walk-in purchase visit. I was kindly greeted by David who helped me from start to finish. He also made sure I was comfortable as we discussed my lens options and frames. I drove from Kankakee, IL to this location since they were the only ones who could order this frame. The very first thing I noticed about the staff and store was it’s professionalism and cleanliness, also customer care and comfort. Thank you David for all your hard work and patience. My visit could not have gone smoother than it did. Although, coming from a country setting finding parking was a bit challenging for me. Guests and patients are treated like family.

I went here for an eye exam & to purchase glasses. I was walking around the mall lost, trying to find their location. I finally found it. When i walked in the door it was 4 mins after my appointment. The employees panicked and were like hurry up hurry up, telling me if i was one more minute late the Dr would not have seen me. Really? Do people not understand that not everyone knows where their location is in a big mall? Rude & so uncalled for! Apperantly their “policy”

I hadn’t had an eye exam since I moved here two years ago. Great facility, people and service. This is a doctor that REALLY listens and cares. I am so happy I found this doctor and his staff. Their pricing is good also. Great place! Thank you.
