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.

Dear Gordon Optical: Allow me to explain why you've lost me as a repeat customer. Just a few months ago I ordered new glasses from your shop. All in all, a fine experience. I now find myself overseas for two months and my old backup glasses have developed a yellowish hue with multiple scratches. Wanting to get the lenses replaced on my backup glasses, I needed to decide whether I should do it while I'm traveling overseas or wait another month until I get back to Lexington. So I called Gordon Optical to find out how much it would cost me to replace my lenses back home and was utterly shocked to find out that they have a policy of not quoting insurance-adjusted pricing over the phone. What's the point of being a loyal customer if you're going to treat me like you don't know me.

We've been customers for 20 years - followed the owners from Winchester to Lexington. If you want the best selection of the highest quality product with first-rate customer service, this is the place. If you're not sure regarding a style, you can feel comfortable putting yourself in Paul or Nora's hands. They are artists with a discerning eye. This is not the same old/same old. Not inexpensive, but the best rarely is.

Diana was very kind and professional to help me fix a pair of glasses that was not even purchased from Eye Look Optical. It turned around in a day and FREE! I am greatly thankful for this local business taking care of community. Will come back again for my next new pair and not hesitate to recommend to others.

I had a really good experience at Gordon Optical. Dr. Shriber is very professional and personable. I am not great at selecting out frames. I asked them to select them for me. I have gotten so many compliments on them. Also Dr. Shriber did an excellent job at selecting the lenses. I highly recommend them

What an awesome shop. Stopped in to have a pair of glasses I bought in NYC adjusted about a year ago. The gentleman who came out to assist is an absolute pro. He returned in moments with my glasses looking better than new and fitting perfectly. No charge and a friendly smile. I’ve now been back twice to purchase beautiful eyeglasses and sunglasses (both by Matsuda). Everyone I’ve come in contact with is equally classy and professional including the wonderful owners. I won’t go elsewhere now, a small gesture of help goes a very long way. First class experience every time.
