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.

Highly recommend coming here! I had such a great experience here with Dr. Barsky. She is an amazing doctor, professional, and really cares about your eye health. Examined my eyes without rushing and explained everything in detail ,will be coming back here for all my future eye examinations. As I have found the perfect doctor for my eye care needs. As well as the staff is wonderful and welcoming, when I came back to pick up my new pair of glasses, they were adjusted perfectly for me by the lab technician. To top things off they also have an amazing selection of frames to choose from and such reasonable prices!

Laura was the most fantastic person Helping me choose. At 76 I did not know all the special things that were happening with glasses and she showed me some wonderful updates. So very patient and kind.

I LOVE this office. After moving one hour away, I still make the commute because the level of care is just awesome here. I have a high stigmatism and this is the first Dr. that has gotten my vision just right. I’ve been wearing contacts and glasses for 30 years and unfortunately I had always thought it was normal to not be able to see well even after a new pair of glasses. Not after here! I am confident driving even after dusk which used to always make me nervous. The Dr., the gentleman that adjusts my glasses, and even the young lady that checks you in all are always so nice and upbeat, genuinely willing to help. I will continue to make the commute!

Very inviting and caring staff reception area. Exam was thorough and far covering. When you leave the office. You know that everything about your eyes was examined and explained. Great place. Non-corporate.
