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.

Very welcoming and knowledgeable staff. Dr. explained everything si it was easy to understand. Staff was also a great help in picking frames out. Great advise! Highly recommend FVC to anyone looking for a great experience.

High quality & patient-focused EVERY time! Since I tend to ask many questions, I noticed they are active listeners: they answered each one consistently, with care, consideration, and when needed: suggestions and options. They are a delightful and unexpected 'find' and am sure for my next appointment it will be an equally or higher satisfactory experience with them.

I brought my 3 yr old and 6 month old to get their eyes checked and had an okay experience. The doctor “tried” to be good with the kids (talking in a high pitched voice), but seemed to get frustrated when my 3 yr old didn’t cooperate. She’s very shy and it takes a little while for her to be comfortable with someone. I will say that the doctor was very thorough and explained things well to me. After the initial exam, we were handed over to a sales lady even though we didn’t need any glasses. Overall I wasn’t super impressed and definitely think they should be better with kids considering they call themselves “Family Vision Clinic”. I think we’ll be going somewhere else next year.

Dr. Rupnow and her staff are top notch and I highly recommend them for your eye health and vision needs! Both I and my adult daughter recently had our eyes checked and ordered high quality lenses and glasses at the very nice Farmington clinic. We are very happy with every aspect of our experiences—the thorough exams; the excellent recommendations; the awesome glasses specialist; and the caring customer service.
