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.

2EYES Vision was a nice change to where I previously went to for my annual vision checkups and glasses. The staff and Dr. Tew are very accommodating and willing to help with the entire process. From making the appointment to ordering a new pair of glasses the process is pleasant and efficient. They went over and above with trying to get me the pair of glasses that suits me and supports my vision needs. I recommend 2EYES Vision Development Center if you are looking to have a local vision center this is the place you want to visit.

I’ve never had a more thorough, informative and helpful eye exam! My kids and other family members have seen Dr. Fowler as well. He is very knowledgeable and kind. Jenifer is also very kind, patient and calming, especially with nervous kids (and adults). Highly recommend!

I would highly recommend anyone who needs glasses or contacts go see Dr. Fowler. He takes the time to actually listen to your needs, and doesn't hurry through the process of fitting you with the correct lenses! My previous optometrist seemed to care less and less each year about getting me into the contacts that worked for my needs, and I won't even elaborate on how rude the ladies at the front desk were there. Dr.Fowlers assistant however, has a very pleasant personality and is very professional at the same time. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at the care and professionalism that the whole office staff showed me, ( and the family that was finishing up when I got there.!). I'll be going back to Dr. Fowler for all my eye care!

Great experience with the entire staff, but Dr Fowler has always gone above and beyond with answering all my questions. I tend to ask a lot of questions because I really want to understand what is going on. Also the Optomap imaging turned out to be very revealing and informative. Glad my family and I can trust in his expertise.

Dr. Fowler is the best. He goes above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and makes sure our prescription is right. My kids and I travel from LaGrange to see him. The last who answers the phone, helps with appointment and make appointments is very nice and knowledgeable!
