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.

I got my glasses prescription filled here a year ago. From the start, I knew my glasses weren’t right. I figured the girl marking the lenses had messed up but Covid shut everything down and I dealt with it. Several months ago I stopped by to ask for new glasses because I still can’t see right. I thought maybe there was scratches or something on it causing the problem. I was informed there were no scratches on them so they couldn’t be replaced. Like WTH I can’t see hardly anything in focus! Then they said they couldn’t find my current prescription and I had to be rexamined. I finally saw an eye doctor today in a medical facility. They examined my glasses and told me the lenses had been PUT IN BACKWARDS! The lens for my right eye was put on the left side etc So after over a year of about to lose my mind with vision difficulties, I have finally been helped and getting new glasses. I will NEVER go back to Walmart again.

Dr. Mike is beyond amazing! He was not only knowledgable, but kind. I appreciated the fact that he was able to answer my questions and also give me the reasoning behind everything. Highly, highly recommend coming here if you need eyewear. The prices are great as well. Lots of variety and the price range for eyewear ranges between $9 to I believe around $168. You definently won't find these prices at your local eye doctor.

I have been going to Dr. Rains for 3 years. He was recommended to me by a close friend who had been to a number of the local optometrist and found him the best for fitting her with glasses that improved her vision. Another plus is that his office can make the lens for any pair of your own glasses. Everyone I have seen in his waiting room seems glad to be there as a patient. I would recommend him to anyone who wanted a reliable long-term eye doctor for their eye exams for glasses. I have nothing but good to say and recommend. his services So did my friend! I say give Dr. Rains a try. I have done both Eyemart and Walmart for exams. Was not that impressed because the perscription was off. This is why I needed a good eye dr. Eyeglasses are a different thing. But you need a good prescription before you put any money down on good-looking eyeglasses.

I have been going to Dr. RAINES for the past 6 years. 3 years ago I was told I had glaucoma. I was devested. I researched everything I could. I wasnt given any info at the time. He just said you have glaucoma and left the room. I go back Last week of August and get told my vision hasnt changed much. So I ask about the glaucoma Dr.Raines said What glaucoma? I just had another appointment at another eye dr. For second opinion and no glaucoma. All this is out of pocket. My insurance didnt cover. Qould have been helpful if sectary qould have mentioned ahe knew insurance change. At other place she did infrom of it.
