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.

Today was one of my best experiences at an optometrist office ever. My boyfriend has Keratoconus and he's never used contacts before so this is a stressful process for him. It's been really hard for him to handle this condition. Thankfully, Dr. Shick was amazing with him and he was well taken care of by the staff, especially Jackie, she is awesome and comforted me while I was worrying. I feel like through Family Eye Care we'll get this all figured out and I know they'll take good care of him and his eyes. We figured out that he needs to get a little more used to contacts before we can settle with anything so in the meantime, we're going to practice getting used to contacts together.

Since they moved from Kelly nothing has been the same. Of course the issues are blamed on my insurance

These guys (well girls actually) are awesome. Funny, nice, and they do a great job. I've never had an eye doctor get my prescription so accurate before and get me in and out so quickly. My glasses also arrived a week early which is awesome. Highly recommend them.

Dr. Schick and the rest of the staff are outstanding! Never a wait and they are very friendly. This is a group of people that truly care about their patients. I needed to be fitted for hard contacts after wearing soft contacts for nearly 30 years due to eye disease and they allowed several follow up visits to ensure the correct fit and comfort. I never felt rushed and they allowed plenty time to answer my questions and listen to my concerns. I have been to many many clinics in my lifetime for contacts and or glasses but Family Eye Care is easily the very best. I highly recommend them. Give them a try, you wont be disapointed!

When I moved to this side of town, I decided to try to find a store closer to me than the old glasses store I used to use in Royal Oak. I found Family Eye Care in the Yellow Pages and I called them and set up an appointment. My appointment went really well. The staff is very friendly and caring. They set up a pick-up date for me for about a week later. When I returned the following week, my new glasses were available and ready so I wore them out of the store and returned home! (smile) I think it's nice in this day an age whereas so many small businesses have kind of gone by the wayside, it's awesome to find a store that still cares about the customer and offering good prices for excellent service and product!
