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.

I recently scheduled an appointment through a link they sent me via text message and received a notice that they would contact me with a confirmation within a few days. I waited, and finally called them to verify. It turns out that they are closed all week for Christmas (confirmed via their Facebook page). Nobody bothered to call me to let me know my appointment time was unavailable (they had a full week to do so). This is after they charged us in full for a previous visit because my wife accidentally provided her medical insurance rather than vision. When it was rejected they refused to rebill to the vision insurance. Dr. Greco has been great, but we will not be back.

Laura was extremely helpful with the entire process. She answered all the questions I had about my new progressive lenses and made sure I understood how to use each section for my best sight. I highly recommend Pearl Vision in the Crosswoods Mall for all your vision needs!

The people that work here are amazing. They take thier time and dont rush you. They are very fast my glasses were ready in exactly an hour. They waited for me after their closing time so I could have my glasses that day. Would recommend 100% I love getting glasses here.

Came in with a pair of glasses from a friend with a broken frame from here. The store attendant was nice enough to look up the purchase, but I was disappointed to learn that they discontinued the frame, were unable to repair the glasses, and said that it was not possible to put the lenses in a new frame. :/

I needed an appointment for a pick up. 10 minutes tops. I they would not fit me in even when I told them my eyes were a mess. I've waited patiently for a week and a half already. I spend over 1000$ every year here. But that isn't the point. Very unhappy.
