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.

What is the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

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.

Update: had a phone call with the billing lady and the owner. They claimed that $89 and $19 should be charged because it’s a service that they provide and “do you expect to receive a service for free?”. However, it’s a service that was provided to the customers under the impressions of being part of the eye exam at no additional cost. They claimed that no where else would provide that service without additional charge. They eventually refunded the money. If you’d like to receive their service (which is excellent), please double check with them with any additional costs if they ever offer you anything. There are many places that will teach you how to put on contacts for free. THIS PLACE SCAMS YOUR MONEY! I'd say the experience with the doctor and staff was decent. But they have hidden charges! When I was getting my eye exam, they took some images for my eye (as it seems like to be part of the exam) but didn't tell that it was NOT covered and that was extra $19. Then, after telling them that it'd be my first time wearing contacts, they offered that their staff would teach me how to put on contacts, but didn't mention anything about extra cost. This ended up costing an extra $89 but NO ONE mentioned anything about the cost and made patients think it was all covered within insurance! I ended have to pay an extra $108 because the no one (including the doctor and the staff) told me about the hidden fees! If you go to other clinics, they don't ever charge you for this! They charge you without your consent! If you want to avoid hidden fees, you better off going to a different clinic.

When I started this process I was scared because I thought there was something major wrong with my eyes. When I came in the office, the people at the front desk was disarming and very kind to me. The documentation and insurance was completed and ready, which made checkin really easy and painless. Dense has been and continues to be specular. While I had tons of questions, she was patient and took time to explain what she was doing and why. I am not sure if she knew I was scared but she really went out of her way to make me feel comfortable and at ease. The doctor followed up Denise’s out standing services with a great experience of his owns. He explained what was happening and why I was experiencing the issue. He also suggested some simple steps I could take to ease the pain and improve my vision. There are very few places where an entire experience is note worthy; however, all three of my visits was easy, convenient and an absolutely great experience.

I have nothing but GREAT impressions of Optical Expressions. Although I have only had glass adjustments, they were very understanding and of course they didn't charge anything for my visit. I have been going to my optometrist for years in Florissant, but they have lost a lot of their customer service and expertise. I am going to become a customer here; it is convenient and the store is bright and their customer service is outstanding!

My check-in process was smooth, the preliminary eye exam was simple and well done by the tech, and my experience with the overall exam with Dr. Mahurin, O.D. was well done. I was a little nervous to try a new doctor since I have seen Dr. Wright, O.D. for years, but I was pleasantly surprised with my experience with a new provider. Thank you for the great experience! It's hard to find good healthcare providers.

Very friendly staff! Relieved great care, Dr. Henderson was very thorough and did not rush me out of there. He asked a lot of questions to make sure I had the right prescription, and took the time to explain what he was seeing in all the pictures they took of my eyes. I highly recommend!
