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.

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 just recently became a patient of Dr. Shwom. I find him inviting, thorough in attention to detail and very informative in letting you know and understand what procedure he is doing or needs to do. An added bonus to all of this is Mindy. She is kind, also informative and patient. She makes you feel welcomed in the office. Thanks to you both for the experience. Daisy D

Great service! Neal gave me useful information to select the right pair of glasses base on my needs and I got a second pair (sunglasses) with 40% off. This is my second time going to Target Optical in Everett and I’ll be back!

Not sure why someone would give this place a bad review! I have been coming to them since I was 7 years old. They are a small family business and do everything they can to acommodate our needs. Manoel, who is the owner brought the glasses I had bought to my house because I was going to travel and didn’t have the time to go pick them up. Who does that? Love them! Also, the price for their exam is only $59, the best around, I checked!

I became a patient of Dr. Shwom through being a patient of a now retired optometrist. I loved my previous optomitrist and he truly set any of his former patients up for success by suggesting Dr. Shwom! I had my second visit there this week and just can not rave more about the service that he and Mindy provide as well as taking such great care of their patients! I have had very poor eyesight my entire life and eye care is something incredibly important to me. I feel so confident in knowing that I will get the best of care from Dr. Shwom. Just today, Mindy called me to let me know that my contacts were on back order and she was working on getting some trial pairs to make sure I was covered. Now that is an optical office that truly cares! Thank you Dr. Shwom & Mindy for being so great!

Awful customer service. Called with MESVision coverage, and the associate I talked to 1) lied about my coverage (that I confirmed with my provider) 2) refused to look into my coverage or understand I was covered at their location. I do not recommend this eye doctor for an eye exam as they will try to price gouge you and convince you that you are not covered.
