Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

Optometry is a branch of ophthalmology that specializes in methods of correcting vision using optometric aids. An optometrist is a specialist who determines the degree of vision impairment and prescribes corrective aids such as glasses and contact lenses.

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

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 here is very friendly and I felt the eye exam was very thorough. However, the lab they use is unreliable. It took 4 weeks to get a pair of glasses because of errors. I still don't have a pair of reading glasses because of multiple errors. ETA is 7 weeks from my appointment. I can't imagine how frustrating this must be for the staff. I'm not sure I will return.

The Walmart Vision Center on Elkhart Road, Goshen, IN, provides the highest quality customer service, thorough eye exams, and beautiful, fashionable frames. I was just walking by the Vision Center, dropped in to look at their frames, and was so impressed with Antoinette's knowledge of their products and services that I made the decision to have an exam and buy my glasses there. After meeting the rest of their staff, including the doctor, it confirmed my high opinion about their organization. I taught customer service and sales for many years, and I recognize competent employees when I meet them. It's refreshing to meet employees who love their work, their company, and enjoy helping people.

I have been going here for over 15 years. If you want a real eye exam this is the place. They take their time to make sure everything is correct. Although the do not accept my insurance I still come here for the exams however go else where for the frames and lens. I made the mistake and took my son else where for an exam and the prescription was beyond incorrect. He was diagnosed as near sighted at another office however he is actually far sighted. Dr. Cripe fixed everything for my 7yo. I am so grateful for the Optometrists here.

Very overpriced. I bought some shades and had buyers remorse the next day (cheapest good looking sunglasses I could find were $80 and weren’t even polarized), and had to pay a $25 restocking fee, for sunglasses still in perfect condition and bought less than 24 hours earlier. Huge ripoff. I will not be returning or removing my reviews unless I get a full refund. EDIT: An update. They not only charged the $25 restocking fee to return them next day but also repeatedly sent letters for months saying I still owed them the $25, even after I told them they already took it out of the refund.
