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.

Excellent service, friendly staff. Every detail is explained in a comprehensive way. Testing is done by very competent friendly staff. Very helpful but not pushy in eye glass selection. Staff makes sure you are utilizing the full benefits of your insurance to reduce out of pocket cost to a minimum. Highly recommend.

Linda and I were very pleased with your clinic staff and services, especially the eye exam! We are also glad that Dr Axelson continues to see patients in Vadnais Heights. We are very impressed with the level of care and we will return for our next scheduled appointment.

My eye exam was thorough. The office staff was cordial in check-in. The technician was professional in the testing. Dr Grudem was outstanding. He helped me think through some option and timelines related to cataract surgery in the future, as well as helping me with a new prescription for contact lenses. I don’t live in the Twin Cities, but I have come back to Birch Lake Eye Clinic and Dr Grudem for over 40 years for vision care.

I was very impressed when I walked into their office. My eyes have not been able to be corrected better than 20/40 for so many years I don’t even remember how long. Dr. Doffin took the time to find out why I was having such a problem and couldn’t be corrected. That was the first time ever an optometrist really cared. I still can’t be corrected but at least now I know why. The optical department had a huge selection of frames to choose from and I found the perfect ones for me! Thank you White Bear eye clinic and optical! I will definitely be back!
