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.

Glasses ready in an hour? ABSOLUTELY! I received excellent, courteous and professional care from my ophthalmologist, whose office is adjacent to Eyemart, to my lovely frame and lens specialist who fit my glasses perfectly! I even took advantage of their two for one pricing and got myself a spare pair. I will never go elsewhere for my eye care!

I dropped my glasses and stepped on them braking the wire holding the lens in. Took them in he had them repaired in 15 min while we waited charged a very reasonable fee very pleased with his work!

The attending physician and supportive staff are all very professional and helpful. My only thought as l reflect back on that morning is balance of gender. It’s not necessary; however, maybe one token man in this politically correct world would be nice. Thank you for an excellent visit with your business……

By far the best place for glasses! Good selection, prompt, knowledgeable service. All personnel are friendly and helpful. My glasses always fit well and I can update my prescription easily at the same location if needed. Eyemart Express is excellent and I am a very satisfied customer. Thanks!

Great selection of frames, many great designers as well! Great Sunglasses too! You can't beat the price point. They offer many coupons on line and via your email if you sign up for said emails. The customer service was outstanding and the two pair of glasses that I purchased were ready in under an hour. I highly recommend Eyemart Express!
