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 established care at Snodgrass Eyecare a couple months ago and was very impressed with how fast they got me in for an appointment, how thorough the optometrist is, and the kind service provided by all of the staff. I had been dealing with blurry and double vision for quite some time, even after seeing other optometrists, and the prescription I received has made a tremendous difference. Dr. Snodgrass took his time examining my vision and eyes and I felt that my visit was comprehensive and educational. I am excited to continue going here!

My husband and I both saw Dr. Jane for the 1st time today after reading Google reviews and we are so happy we did! From the moment we walked into the door, the entire staff was friendly, positive and extremely helpful! They know what they are doing and listened to us! Dr. Jane is amazing! She is so caring, understanding, knowledgeable and explained everything! We have found a new eyecare home!

I just had my annual exam at Snodgrass Family Eyecare and great service as always. There was no waiting and everything is explained to you about your eyes. Dr. Jane is like family and so are the other people that work there. They are friendly but experienced and take care of your eye needs. I ordered contacts and they were shipped to my home in less than a week. Thanks again for the great service!
