Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

Optometry is a branch of ophthalmology that specializes in methods of correcting vision using optometric aids. An optometrist is a specialist who determines the degree of vision impairment and prescribes corrective aids such as glasses and contact lenses.

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 would like to say the Ophthalmologist and the ladies at the front desk were great, but the people filling out my prescription for glasses are unorganized and lack communication. I was told my glasses would come in 2-3 weeks but never got a call. Once I called them to check to see if my glasses came in they told me “No” then 10 mins later called me back to tell me they had them ready?! The story doesn’t end there becuase once I got my glasses one lens was scratched. So I sent them off and once again they came back scratched on the lens. The ladies told me I would have to use my warranty to get them repaired (even though I had nothing to do with the scratches) for the third time. I had no other choice so I sent them off one last time. It’s been weeks and when I call to check on the status of my glasses one of the ladies tells me there busy and call THEM back and when I do it’s a guy tells me he’s the only one there?! Also, they told me it would only take a couple weeks and it has been 3 weeks. I disappointed and will never get my prescription fill out at this location.

Dr. Mark Allen likes details and gladly explained in more detail what was goin on with my eyes. I work in IT and he fully appreciated and took into account my situation. He and his staff listened to me and my problems in detail. His staff were super nice and knowledgeable. Insurance was no problem. Walked out feeling informed and we have a plan. I can’t say enough nice things about the clinic and staff. Great job

Dr. Hinds & her staff are the best. They took care of my insurance and helped me with all our eye care needs. Dr. Hinds even was able to finish an eye exam for my 7 month old son. We will only go to HineSight for eye exams going forward. Great service!

I’ve been waiting for at least a month for my glasses to return to Dr. Minor’s office. This experience has not been a pleasant one. I can rarely get someone on the phone and when I leave a message they don’t call me back. I had my exam on July 11, 2018 and I have yet to receive my glasses or a valid response from them. This experience has been horrible honestly.

I went to Precision Optical and met Glen! He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining to me about all the different options that exist in choosing the best quality lens and the different coatings that are used. My wife bought a good pair of non-prescription sunglasses while we were there! She’s very pleased as they make a world of difference vs what she had... Glen will get my business on any future new prescription eye glasses! He’s a great down to earth gentleman!
