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.

My experience was so bad I cannot even list it all. But I hate my glasses and had to pay$500 for them. They did not even bother to check my insurance to see if they were on my insurance list and tell me they were not. No help picking out glasses and no help having them fitted. Really bad experience.

My daughter left this office with EXTREME PAIN BLURRED VISION AND EXTREME LIGHT SENSITIVITY after her annual exam. We thought it was the dilation medication but when a few hours passed and her symptoms did not go away we became concerned. We called the very next business day after my child has been bed bound wearing her glasses and sunglasses. Brandy at the front desk hung the phone up in my face after I asked for the office manager. No one said mam let me talk to the doctor and review her chart first then I’ll call you back. I called a new doctor and the office lady immediately said mam I’ll make a place for her to see what is going on and that she was so sorry this happened. This is not the first time this staff at this office in Brandon has been unprofessional and rude. Just know that if you leave your appt with eye pain blurred vision and light sensitivity after the dilation wears off they really don’t care about you all they care about is getting that money. Some people choose to pay cash for various reasons. Mine being I am a contract nurse and paying out of pocket is cheaper then paying for a plan. They made me feel like my child did not matter until money was paid.Total opposite of a caring doctor! And also why would you make a patient pay for a problem she got after seeing your doctor? Doctors make mistakes all the time. Did you even talk to the doctor? Does she know what issues occurred after her visit? I can understand if it was days after her visit but this happened from the time she left her appt all weekend and today! We will not be back here again. I feel so bad for the doctor really because her staff is very rude. They need a class on words to say to upset clients. First things first mam I apologize. Let me review her chart…….

The optometrist, optician, and staff are courteous, professional, and friendly. Very pleased with my visit as well as their selection of glasses. If they do not have a specific frame but carry the brand, they are more than happy to order. The optician truly takes her time to help you pick the optimal frames that fit. I left my previous provider based on the optician’s lack of sincerity. They seem to accept most insurance. Overall very happy to have them here in Brandon.

Very well organized. I had plenty of help finding what I was looking for. Everyone was very nice and respectful. Highly would recommend coming here for checkups, new glasses, or even just getting a nice pair of shades.
