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. Include: 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.

I came into the shop with the hopes they would be able to salvage my broken sun glasses. I showed them the glasses, they assessed the issue and were able to immediately repair the glasses back to new in no time. Great service, and incredibly quick!

I have nothing but good vibes from Coolidge corner Lense Crafter. I can always find a pair of fashionable eye wear at a reasonable price. Shout out to Shirley for being patient, professional and honest when assisting me with my selection. She's very knowledgable about the type of lenses that fits your prescription. My friends and I were happy with the service and product we received. No pressure sale, very important!

Great experience. Dr. Galatis is extremely professional, patient and very knowledgeable. The visit didn’t feel rushed. This is my first time seeing her. Thank you and I will be waiting to receive my glasses! This was in September. After the visit I placed an order paying for a pair of glasses. I had to wait 1 month to receive them, and after getting them I couldn't see with them. First time I have this kind of problem with the glasses, but Dr. Galatis told me that she'd fix them herself without sending them back to the lab. I waited another month for them calling and leaving voice messages, but nobody picked the phone or called back. Yesterday I decided to go myself and check what was happening since Saturday they're supposed to be open. I got there and decided to call before getting inside. As usual nobody picked up, and even the door was locked. I'm very frustrated since I need the new pair of glasses, and this is the first time I have this kind of problems with a business. Update: Got my glasses right on time for Christmas. I would say better later than ever. Dr. Galatis told me she had to send them to the Lab, that's why all this happened. The only problem was that thay weren't fixed and I saw blurry again. She told me everything looked fine, even if it didn't. I spent time and money, and now have to get another visit paying out of pocket since my insurance will not cover for the visit, frame and glasses. Now I have two pair of useless glasses. Thank you! Conclusion: I went to have another vision visit in Brookline. The Dr. showed me that the classes that I received were not correct and during the visit they showed me the difference between the lens that I received and the new visit. I got really frustrated and had to pay out of pocket, but at least now I can see clearly!

I moved out of state and when I went to order new contacts I was told that the lenses he fit me in were not available. I asked if there was a similar contact lens that could be substituted and one of his rude office staff told me that the doctor wouldn’t change the rx! I’d have to find a new doctor and get a new rx or I’d have to drive from Colorado all the way back to be seen by him again. I saw him in July and it is November now so I don’t have a benefit for a contact lens fitting until next year. Unbelievable. This guy is a waste of time and money.

Arcade Optical has a great selections of cool and sophisticated frames and we needed to get the glasses in a hurry. Both Dr. Lakher and the lady at his shop helped us to find some great frames and they rushed the order for us to have it done quickly. We had a great experience being helped at Arcade Optical.
