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.

Best care I've received in 10 years. Doctors are knowledgeable, patient and attentive. Staff is warm and inviting and office is clean. Found a frame I liked in just a matter of minutes, so I'd say they have a great frame selection as well. Highly recommend!

I have used Vonnahme Eye Care for many years. In the past I had excellent service from a staff that seemed knowledgeable about fitting their customers with glasses. Returning for service after the pandemic, I find all new employees who seem to be uneducated in fitting a pair of glasses properly. I am on my fourth pair of glasses in four months. The glasses seem to fit in my short try on appointment. The optician will tell me the glasses look great and fit .After visiting another optician in Ct I was informed my glasses were not properly fitted for my face. The key word is Optician. A certified person to fit and sell prescription glasses. I asked a Vonnahme employee if the staff who assist with glasses are certified Opticians and was told no. They staff is hired and works under the Optometrist credentials. If you value your eyes and money use an actual professional for glasses. Opticians go to school and have the education needed to fit a person properly. I gave Vonnahme Eye Care several opportunities to rectify my issue with no satisfaction. Ask questions before picking an eye care provider. Make sure you are getting a qualified staff.

Dr. Harris was extremely informative and took the time to explain each step and was extremely thorough with what his referral was. I am extremely appreciative of the fact that I left my appointment with a good understanding of what he explained. I have never committed to one eye doctor in the past, but definitely plan to continue to seek any of my optical needs from him. I also plan on referring him to anyone who ask.

Paid over $400 for a pair of glasses with transitions. They called me back a day later and told me they under charged me, hmmm

I really just had such a great experience here tonight for my daughter! Everyone there was so nice and informative. We got in for an appointment within a day which is unheard of these days and they explained everything that was going on with my daughters vision and got her glasses within the hour. Will absolutely return!
