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.

This location of visionworks is very busy but they are extremely effective and efficient so things go smoothly. They work with you to get the best value from insurance as well as from their own offers.

Not only did Visionworks state to my eye provider they lost my prescription. They said in order for me to get my contacts reordered I have to drive back to the store with the prescription because their fax machine does not work. What kind of customer service is this? This is the worse level of service I have ever received from an eye care provider. How do you lose an eyeglass and contact prescription if this is what you do?? Absolutely unacceptable!

I’ve been coming here for several years and I have not once had a bad experience here. I went in last week for a contact appointment and every staff member was exceptional. From Sandi who is the store manager here, to Julie and Nicholas who lead my exam. They were all so helpful and kind to me. You could tell they have passion for what they do. They have since moved to the doctors being remote and to me it was more than an eye exam, truly it was an experience that in my opinion I enjoyed. Julie and Nicholas were very knowledgeable and clear about what was going to happen; how each machine operated and the reason behind them. I left with more knowledge about my eyes, a trial pair of contacts, and a heart of gratitude that has since led me here to write this google review. Continue being the wonderful people that you are, we cannot please everyone and we cannot achieve perfection but you guys have a wonderful heart despite other reviews. I will return to dr.visionworks and this location in particular. high praises.

Made an appointment. Called the location to let them know I was running 10 minutes late, no answer. I traveled 20 minutes to get here. Was turned away because they were short staff and the doctor wouldn’t take me. Horrible service. Sandy should not be a manger. She isn’t well at communicating to the customers. Managers like her will be the reason no one will want to come to Vision works. Look at all the one star reviews. Will never return again. What’s the point of making an appointment if they can’t stick to it. Sticking to America’s Best.

I can't give enough praise to the Visionworks in Arundel Mills and especially to Sandi Crownover, the General Manager. She is so knowledgeable about lenses and sincerely wanted to help me resolve an issue that I had at another Visionworks store. She was able to problem-solve my complex prescription and figure out what needed to be done. I am so thankful to have met Sandi, and I trust her to handle my optical needs in the future. I highly recommend the Arundel Mills store, Sandi, and her most professional staff.
