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 was having trouble with my glasses not fitting correctly and when I came in Kaitlyn and Sarah were super awesome and friendly helping me get them fixed, as well as fixing a couple of other issues with them that I didn't even know were wrong! Definitely awesome service and staff, would highly recommend!

I have gone to Dr Branstetter for quite a few years now. My first experience was wonderful and she is the first optometrist to help me to see better. The office is always very clean and the staff is super nice. I have NEVER had any problems with anyone in this office. They are all professional and helpful. I have seen several optometrist in my years and NONE compare to this office. Need an optometrist, go here!

The staff here are great, super nice and helpful! I love the pricing system. It makes it easy to fit any budget. Definitely a great place to get your glasses. And after loosing my eye doctor to a sudden death the Dr. was great with my daughter. He was very patient and answered all my questions. And if you have ever had to learn a how to put in contacts you know it isn't easy to do at first. He was great giving lots of tips and taking the time to help her her figure it out. And I love the follow up to make sure everything is going well with your purchase and that you are truly happy. Thanks team!
