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.

Janine in eyeglass/contact lenses dept. has to be the most rudest person I’ve met. Couldn’t help me at all before Christmas with my daughters contacts. She is not professional and has been very disrespectful and unprofessional and negative all the way.

If I could give this place a negative 1 I would! They are soo disorganized. I also had to have 3 exams for them to get my prescription correct. Then almost a year later told me I needed to make an appointment for an eye exam before I could order any more contacts only to have me leave work early and rush through traffic to show up and find out it wasn't necessary. The next morning they called me to tell me I missed my appointment (huge eyeroll) They also dropped the ball on ordering me contacts that I desperately needed. They never call you back when they say they will. WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE! The best part of that place was this guy Craig who no longer works there. I will be taking my business to elsewhere.

Tatiana was helpful with fixing my Ray-ban shades. She was able to adjust and put the lens back in my frame effortlessly. Tatiana was professional, kind and I would recommend her services to any customers.

I had problems with my new glasses i called and i was told my daughter could bring them in Dr told me i would be able to see my work computer with my new glasses rx but no joy. My daughter went to drop them off they refused to take them. I called told my story to 2 people how i am disabled and its hard for me to leave my home i wanted my glasses to be single vision. I was on hold for 20 minutes i hung up and called back and was told i would get a call back i am still waiting. I paid over 300 for my glasses with insurance. I am about to report them to my insurance company my employer by the way BBB maybe take them to small claims court. I had no idea there ratings were so low i never would have gone back.

I had a fantastic experience at the Towson Mall Lens Crafters. I walked in and was warmly greeted by attentive staff. I only needed my current LENSCRAFTERS pair adjusted, and Stacey Parchen was more than happy to help me (for any HR/manager people reading this, please give Stacey a high five or some kind of incentive for such great work). As an aggressive glasses wearer (wear them during sleep, stuff them in bags, etc.), my glasses were in really bad shape, but Stacey did a fantastic job adjusting them to be comfortable and fit right, all the while educating me on ways to maintain my pair for the future. And this isn't the only time I've had a pleasant experience at this location. From browsing, to buying pair, and lifetime maintenance, the staff at this location have never failed me. Pictured below is me eating sushi during a chem lecture, for without my LensCrafters glasses, none of which would be possible. Bravo LensCrafters Towson :)
