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 the best experience with Dr. Dave. Her and her staff were very thorough with my exam and contact lens order. I even got an amazing deal on a back up pair of glasses! The whole process from booking my appointment online to coming in for my appointment to leaving with glasses and contacts was seamless! I will definitely be back- thank you!

If I could give a zero I would. Tried to upload information for my appointment but was getting an error on their system (oh it’s ok was the response given). Was late to the appointment (my fault) but no grace given by them at all. Called the office three times on my 20 minute drive there to give them a heads up but no one answered the phone. Turned away said they couldn’t see me. Target lost my business today.

Dr Wu and her office staff were very thorough and listened closely to all my questions/concerns. Often when you see an independent optometrist at an in-store vision center, it seems like they want to get you in and out as quickly as possible. Not the case here, I highly recommend!

I had such a great experience for my 1st eye exam in many years. The doctor and staff are experienced, knowledgeable, and professional. She explained everything to me in terms I can understand and gave me lots of options for contacts. They didn’t have to dilate my eyes because of a cool technology where they take pictures of the back of my eyes! Super cool! The ease of booking my appointment online was an added bonus. I will definitely be back next year.
