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.

What a fabulous experience we had. Mom is 98 and a long time customer. They treated her like family. What a wonderful group of people. Great service! And I am new to the area and asked about adjusting my glasses. Without a second thought my glasses were expertly adjusted. Wow I love this place and will come back for all my future needs.

My experience at Bifano Eyecare was hands-down the best experience I’ve had at any optometrist’s office in the area. One thing that stuck out to me was their equipment was capable of taking images of your eyes without the need for dilation drops, saving me the inconvenience of being really sensitive to light for the rest of the day. Dr. Chris Bifano also showed me the images and explained what he saw which I found to be very informative. Their selection of frames is pretty hard to compete with as well. All around fantastic experience.

I had a very thorough exam, they even do a peripheral vision test. The staff was very nice, I've been going here for several years now. I initially visited the office over 12 years ago when I had vision problem that appeared overnight. Dr. Chris Bifano did a quick exam and proceeded to call a retinal specialist at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor and schedule an appointment for me. For my recent visit, I faxed over my insurance information so that they could review my benefits before my appointment--anything to make things run smoother! The staff helped my pick out a nice pair of frames. I can never get a good opinion from my husband, so their help on what looks good on me we a great help even though I made the final decision. I did learn about the width of frames (some are too wide for your face) and how to figure out which ones to pick out to try on without trying them all on. I was able to pick up the frames in just over a week (holiday weekend) and liked that they at least had some Saturday hours for my pick up. If you ever have any problems, just stop in and they can assist you. I had a set of frames that had several pairs of the nose pads break off and they replaced them each time. (This was the worst pair of glasses I ever owned--it took me over 9 months to finally adjust the nose pads so that they didn't hurt my nose! I know that it was not their fault but a bad frame style.) I highly recommend Bifano Eye Care to anyone looking for a good local office.

Although the Dr who performs the eye exams was wonderful the prices for frames and lens is beyond expensive. The last time i purchased my eyeglasses I decided to get sunglasses as well as a regular pair and paid over $500.00 and that was not including the Ins coverage for the exam and toward frames and lenses. After that I decided to try Americas Best which offered a free eye exam and 2 pairs of glasses for $69.95 and did not have to utilize my Ins coverage to get this price. I got transition lens and a pair of sunglasses. The total price for both came to $89.95. I have since continued to utilize Americas Best as the service has been excellent and the price is well worth the drive. Until the prices at Bifano can come anywhere close to the savings that I have gotten at Americas Best I will not return. The prices are ridiculously high selection of frames is fair in comparison and I have been able to get free repairs as well as multiple pairs of varying types of lens without breaking the bank.
