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.

Sea Urchoon  |  Rating: 5  |  America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses

Very friendly and so so SO much more affordable that other places. The person that helped me pick frames even helped me find best low priced styles and how they looked on me. Finally don't have to choose between glasses and food for the month anymore.


Derek Knox  |  Rating: 5  |  Vision 4 Less

Everyone was polite and very knowledgeable. They helped my son in record time, and had his glasses ready in under an hour, as promised. I will be taking him there each year from now on. Highly recommend them!

The best of best. You never know a business until you have had to have service after the sale. Par excellence. Best eye doctors in Des Moines without question. Plus the support staff is unbeatable. Quit looking and go here


Bryan Osberg  |  Rating: 5  |  Valley Optical Shoppes: Aljets Steven A OD, McAdams Joseph OD

The staff is great. Always helpful with any adjustments during and in between appointments. Dr. McAdams is professional, very knowledgeable. He communicates well with you and answers any questions you may have. I have been going for many years and would recommend them for all of your eye care needs.


Renee Bell  |  Rating: 5  |  Huseman Eyecare

Very friendly staff, thorough eye exam, and even found an issue that I have been suffering from for some time that several other optometrists didn't notice. I am SUPER impressed with everyone here! I will keep coming back here and will definitely recommend to others.
