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.

BEST EXPERIENCE! I felt seen, heard, and well taken care of at Andover Optical. The entire staff was exceptionally friendly, warm & welcoming. Dr. Stoltman took her time with me, she listened carefully and offered solutions & insights that other optometrists have never had for me. Tori was exceptional! She asked about my lifestyle to make specific recommendations on what features I should choose for my glasses lenses. She also went out of her way to help me find frames that I'm excited about. Don't let the outside of this building fool you... you're about to step into a wonderful, high touch experience :) I left Andover Optical glowing.

Very happy with Wal-Mart Vision Center at this location! The customer service was impeccable and my family and I were impressed. From the moment we called to set up the appointment, to the day we picked up my son's glasses; the customer service never disappointed us. Joseph especially went above and beyond to make us happy! We will definitely be back with the rest of the family!

Great staff greeted by a warm smile form the desk. I believe Kelly was her name. A pleasure to work with and full of knowledge. Great doctor also. Took her time showing results and recommendations. Overall experience was great!

Pretty upset after my visit because they wouldn't provide the PD measurement for my 5 year old. Kids are rough on glasses and this should be a complimentary service when they collect as much as they do from the insurance company. We generally always purchase our glasses at the place we get our eye exam and then buy a backup pair for my kids online.. They literally took my sons measurement and then said its company policy to not provide PD measurement for online glasses purchases for liability reasons.....(for real) Doesn't seem right.. not a way to drive business but only drive it away.

Been a customer for the past 17 years, the ladies are awesome, but sense when are eye exams 200$, and when I asked for a itemized receipt they sent me a order confirmation not once did it even say I paid 11$ out of pocket, my insurance covers 750$ for exam and glasses/lenses, I only got transition lenses for my current frames and my exam. Now how did I end up still paying 11$ out of pocket, I'm not sure they didn't give me a true breakdown receipt. Only reason you get the second star is because the staff are cool people.
