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 am very demanding about services offered to me, and I was surprised by how good of a service I got here. Dr. Bidi is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable, she is good at explaining everything well and in details. I was very pleased by the experience I had during my eye exam!

Years ago I had a bad experience here but this time was much improved. Dr. Sapperstein was caring and understanding of my poor exam about six months before at a non-Visionworks location. He was able to find my correct prescription very quickly and assured me via the pictures that my eyes were very healthy! I used my own frames! Gregory took excellent measurements for my progressive lenses and was very thorough. That was 11/8. I couldn't believe my new glasses were ready on 11/14! That was super quick! The distance and near vision are perfect. I'll be back in a year to have a checkup!

Visited this Visionworks in Laurel Maryland on Saturday, May 21, 2022 and the service could not have been worse. I go into the store and it was completely empty. I was greeted pleasantly but everything from there was as unprofessional as it comes. Greeted by a gentleman with locs but cannot remember his name. After he took my personal info he did everything except provide service. I have been using this location for many years but I will take my business elsewhere because of him. I will go where I am respected as a customer.
