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.

The staff is very rude! I got there with my 3 children. After explaining they were here i was sent to the waiting area where someone brought me 2 clipboards for 3 children. When I explained I was there for 3 apointments and would probably need another one she looked at me like i was insane! So i explained that 1 of them had a different last name where she came back with an attitude to tell me that apparently i was late for their appointments. I received a call the day before to confirm. I wrote the time down and am certain i was there at the right time and when i told her This she again looked at me like i was nuts and told me nobody told me that and continued to stare me down.( i believe they take walk ins anyways and if she would've explained there was miscommunication i would've gladly rescheduled) I finally just told her to forget it i would find somebody who wanted to take them and walked out.This was the last straw for me. Everytime i go there they make me seem like an inconvenience and i dont think anybody knows what's going on in this place.

Dr. Funk and all the staff at Tri-county eye are wonderful. The staff and Dr. Funk make you feel welcomed and like you are their only patient when you are there. They do not make you feel rush and will take the time needed to find the right prescription for your eyes or your children’s eyes. When it comes to finding the right frame they have a great Selection in children’s and adults in all prices ranges. We would not trust anyone else with our eyes!

Tried to get my prescription from them to get glasses from another place. First, they did not give me my glasses prescription but my contacts prescription. I went in again to get the correct one, and was given an expired prescription that also did not work. For a third time, I called them and gave them the fax number to fax the CORRECT prescription. Waited for an hour, never got it, tried to call more times and was not answered (they were open at the time) and ended up calling a different Vision Care.

Amazing Staff! i walked in as a non patient with an eye issue.....they didn't even hesitate to help me out. I filled out a few forms and was taken to a room immediately to get some pain relief until the Doctor could get to me. Top Notch Business that has a true handle on what patient care is all about!

I HIGHLY recommend. I have been frustrated with finding quality eye care in my area. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Funk and his staff and everything about the visit exceeded my expectations. They have the state of the art equipment, the doctor spent time with me to go over my results, show my images and explain what was discovered. He even connected some of my vision problems with health problems he was not told I had previous to him asking. Very impressive. I highly recommend.
