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.

Have used this location twice over the past few years and both times have had great experiences from start to finish. Dr. Cora is great and the front staff are very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Found a great set of Ray-Ban frames that I love at a very reasonable price. Recommended.

My daughter and I went in 2 nights ago. We wanted to look at their selection of frames. While there, we asked the front desk if they would help us understand how and what insurance covered. Florence was AMAZING! She was so friendly and helpful and we immediately loved her. She was able to give us the information we needed and help us book an appointment for both of us the following day. You can't get much better than that! When we arrived for our appointment, we were greeted by our new buddy Florence and the rest of the front desk staff. Florence greeted us with a big smile and quickly took us back to the exam room. Our doctor was friendly as well as informative, and we headed to the showroom. Choosing frames was such a blast! The staff was extremely helpful in this. They allowed us time to fully take in their inventory and guide us to our perfect frames. This seemed more like a party than an overwhelming choice over a vast array of frames. The selection is huge and the prices couldn't be beat. We ordered TWO pair of glasses and contacts for less than the price of one pair of glasses I had priced out at our previous optometrist. We were sold. There hasn't been enough time for our glasses to arrive yet. We are anxious though, to not only see things clearer, but to hang out with our new friends at Visionworks New Albany. Our experience was better than chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven.

First time visiting Visionworks. I had an eye examination for contacts. Dr. Cora was wonderful. He was very thorough in the examination and answering all my questions. Great first impression. Florence who did my pre-test and Pam who did my contact fitting/ordering were fantastic as well. It's nice to go into a business and have a great customer experience. Seems like that's getting more rare nowadays.

The 3 ladies up front need a lesson in customer service. I have never been treated so rudely. I made an appointment and had a text confirmation. When I arrived they told me I had no appointment. I showed them my confirmation text and they said they wouldn't make a mistake like that. They said maybe it was for another place. I told them this is the place that I spoke with and showed them on my phone.. They finally said well we can get you in. I went ahead and stayed. I really wish I would have went somewhere else. I don't like being treated so bad. They were very nasty and hateful. I am 6 months pregnant and I do not need the stress. I did not purchase glasses. I went somewhere else, where I was treated nice and with respect.
