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've been using Birmingham Optical since 2007...Unfortunately, last year the service at the front desk has depleted... I moved forward thinking maybe they are busy and unable to provide quality service. Not so, visited for annual check up and the quality of the service worsened. Approached the counter, the young lady did not acknowledge me, after a minute or two she said rudely " can I help you' without bothering to lift her head and make eye contact. Proceeded to check in, asked the young lady what must I do to transfer to a different eye doctor..She said " nothing, just transfer". She then proceeded to gossip about a patient who just walked out the door. Not sure if management are aware of such horrible distasteful service. On a positive note, Dr. Sehon is absolutely awesome!

Arrived 15 minutes before my appointment time and was met by Karen who immediately began taking care of me. From the paperwork to the exam to selecting frames and finally getting my glasses ordered, she was super friendly, knowledgeable and professionally explained each and every step. I don’t normally stop long enough to write reviews, but the whole experience was worth the time. Awesome!

I enjoyed my experience at America’s Best. My only complaint is that it took quite some time from the first eye exam to the actual remote visit with the eye doctor. The young lady who checked me out I was finally finished was extremely sweet and knowledgeable in her job and her name is Macayla. She was very easy to deal with.

I recently had the pleasure to visit Birmingham Optical to get a new pair of glasses and I'm very glad I did. My doctor had originally recommended Birmingham but I had first gone to the mall because it was convenient to my Ophthalmologist's office but I wasted my time there since none of the optical shops at the mall were willing to work with me since my glasses were to be paid for by my insurance company (after cataract surgery). So, finally taking her advice, I went to Birmingham. They had no problem working with my insurance company and went out of their way to find the perfect frame for me. I picked up the finished glasses today and I was delighted to find the lens were exactly what my doctor prescribed (in the past, I've had problems with other optical outlets not getting the Rx just right). After my great experience with Birmingham Optical I will make a point of recommending them to my friends.

Doctor was very through with exam and answered all of my questions. Just a little upset that I was told that they take my insurance before I made appointment. I paid what was asked of me and I wasn't told that it was an out of network visit until I went to order contacts. I even asked at check out when I was told my cost was $85 dollars " is that with my insurance ?" She said yes .. I like the convenience and friendly staff but I would never have paid that kind of money for an eye exam knowing it wasn't on my insurance
