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 an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

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.

What does an optometrist do?

Functionality: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services.

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.

Dr. Megan is amazing! She is completely engage during our appointment. She is so caring and does a very thorough exam. She does such a great job with my kids explaining what she is doing and explaining the pictures of their eyes! I highly recommend Beaverdale Eye!

Mayra was fantastic. I always get the same Frame they no longer make it. She was so helpful. She understood that glasses are apart of your look for the next year minimum. She went through everything trying to find the best frame for my face. Glasses are stressful she took the stress out of it


Chris Mohr  |  Rating: 5  |  Associated Ophthalmologist, PC

I had my corrective eye surgery 12 years ago. I went from a world of blurry shapes before the surgery to 20/15 vision after the surgery. 12 years later I am still at 20/20. The surgery was a life changing moment for me and I highly recommend going here over anywhere else. I have recommended multiple people get this done and all have experienced success stories like mine.


Jeff Ibbotson  |  Rating: 5  |  Vision 4 Less

The Tech that helped has been with Vision for over 11 years. I bought two pair of glasses. One plastic (done in 64 minutes), and one glass (3 weeks). She did everything and I was out of the store in less than 15 minutes. An absolute terrific experience. Great Techs, great quality, and fair prices. I’ve been buying glasses at Vision for 10+ years, and I have never had less than a terrific experience. I know the frames that I want, buy them, out the door. Terrific! The Tech who is Petite lady with glasses knows her stuff. If you can go to her.

Ive been going to this location for two years and every time has been a great experience. Usually there is a little bit of a wait time but my kids glasses have always been ready in less than the hour quoted. The eye doctors have also always been professional and friendly!
