Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

Optometry is a branch of ophthalmology that specializes in methods of correcting vision using optometric aids. An optometrist is a specialist who determines the degree of vision impairment and prescribes corrective aids such as glasses and contact lenses.

What is the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

What does an optometrist do?

Functionality: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services.

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.

Plan 2 hours of your day in order to get a contact prescription. When I went to my appointment they kept me waiting for 20 minutes and before I finished my exam they took the next client on time and forgot about me. So I have to come back another time to finish my exam even though I was there for an hour. Apparently it’s only important for them to be on time for their appointments for their non-minority clients. This place makes you jump through hoops for you to get you contact prescription that you already paid for. For a pain free experience I recommend you go somewhere else. Also, gave me an extra exam I didn’t ask for so I had to pay out of pocket for one of the exams I didn’t ask for.

I've come here twice and received excellent service both time! Most recently was with Dr. Ho, who was spectacular! She explains everything clearly and thoroughly. She also makes sure to listen to you and really take your concerns and questions into consideration. The appointment was easy to schedule and quick and efficient. Everyone at the reception area is incredibly kind as well. Regarding covid protocol, I felt extremely safe and the density was low. Everyone was masked properly as well. Great place for an eye exam!

I've been going to Dr. Shomali for 4 or 5 years. He provides wonderful service at affordable prices, and he's very knowledgeable. I go to him with ALL of my eye care needs. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and Dr. Shomali is quite the comedian. I can't recommend Dr. Shomali's office highly enough. I have never written a review of anything before now, but Dr. Shomali and staff really deserves it.

My doctor was attentive and knowledgeable. She kept me appraised of what we were going to do next for my exam and was willing to answer any questions that I had. I really appreciated that she ended the session with making sure that I didn't have any of questions or concerns before I left.

Dr. Mamber was efficient, professional, caring and personable. Tiffany helped me with glasses fitting, taking care to sanitize every pair of frames and keeping all of us safe at this Covid time. The entire office helped with my glasses choices, including sunglasses and regular glasses with patience, humor and success. I love my choices!
