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.

Our family has gone to Walkersville Eyecare for many years, and have always received excellent care and service. Highly recommend—all of the optometrists there are excellent, staff are friendly and very helpful with insurance and billing questions. Quality frames and help from their opticians as well. They may not be as inexpensive as some chains, but well worth it!

The practice offers an exceptional service. Everyone in the office especially the appointment office are so kind and wonderful. My daughter was back home from college for winter break and had some issues with her contact lenses. She did not have any appointment and has to go back to college before year end. The practice tried their best to schedule her so the issue could be taken care of before she leaves for college. Thank you for taking a great care of your patients.

This place was awesome. I haven't had an eye check up in years, and they made me feel very welcome. They worked with me to find an appointment time that worked with my schedule, explained to me why my current Rx was in need of updating, and helped me find sharp frames with new lenses that I could pick up the very next day... AND, they checked my insurance and told me where i could save money or make the most of my benefit. I will forever go to this place for my optometry needs. No wonder they're the Best of Frederick! Well done!
