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.

Great eye doctor. They were able to squeeze me in within a days notice, Jordan was so quick to respond. Dr. Mathias had a great personality for working with people and was very caring. I felt like she took the time to really be present during my appointment. I did not feel rushed like I do at most places. Getting new lenses for my frames was also very easy and quick! I don’t remember everyone’s names but all the staff were so helpful! The optomap option was so easy and quick. I would recommend this place to anyone.

I went in for an eye exam as well as an issue I was having with my right eye. Dr. Katz was amazing. She was thorough and walked me through everything she was looking at. She is so kind and I cannot say enough good things about her. The front desk was also wonderful. Everyone was welcoming and thoughtful and it was overall a great experience.

Had great service, super impressed! Easy appointment - front desk Jordan was able to squeeze me in the very next day and husband in two weeks. I had two insurances from overlap on my husband's benefits, she figured this out without me telling her from lookup and told me which was cheaper for my eye and contact exams. The other place wanted me to wait 1 month for eye exam and then go back for contact exam after another 2 weeks later, nope! Dr. Mary was super thorough for the exams and put me at ease, over communicated everything which is awesome to make sure I understood why she was asking. They are still very Covid conscious and had masks and sanitization for everything. The other lady who helped me pick the frames for glasses was also super kind and had a good eye for what suits your face. They do the anti-glare filter for you as well. Not the cheapest, but it's nice to be able to try on in store and get something you know is right for your face, and a 1 year warranty!

Their care for my eyes and we'll being were 1st and foremost! My hubby was there about a month ago band he got the same wonderful treatment. The entire staff was absolutely amazing! They definitely have our best interest at heart. I was wearing readers that were too high, so the Dr. reminded me they will take some getting used to and she even set me up with another test since ai have heart issues, to make sure there isn't anything else going on she may have missed.

Excellent care and very helpful with understanding insurance and pricing and copays for both contacts and glasses. It’s a smooth and speedy exam process, helpful staff, and conscientious pandemic safety procedures. I’ve been examined by several different doctors here and had a good experience each time; each has been willing to answer questions and help me to understand my vision and health options better. My first optometrist as an adult and hopefully my optometrist for many years to come!
