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.

Excellent service from staff. Dr. DeYoung is a patient, compassionate and thorough doctor who treats you like family. He takes time to explain: What, Why, When, Who, Where, and How your prognosis will be treated. Feeling sad that he is planning to retire but happy for him and pray that his retirement will be long and joyous. He deserves it! Hip Hip Hooray for Dr. DeYoung's awesome staff and his dedicated service down through the years.

Throughout the last 25 years I have moved around quite a bit for the age of 48 and have always found myself making a special trip back here. Dr. De Yong, Donna and I go back to almost half of my life and have always treated me well and with upmost professionalism and care regarding my complicated eyes. I fear the day that they leave HOWEVER I commented in the office everything good comes to an end at some point unfortunately with that said hopefully no time soon. I feel like I have always been treated like family by them and this not just how Dr D treats me but how he treats ALL of of his patients! As I mentioned earlier, no matter where life has brought me ,I always find myself coming back. His and Donna’s knowledge and care has been EXCEPTIONAL to say the least. Thank you both for always taking care of giving me the gift of life through my eyes. The staff in the front throughout the years has always been helpful and efficient and I’m not surprised under their supervision that they would choose anything less than. This is a team that has a real passion for what they do. I never felt like I was just another number under their care. Perpetually grateful. ❤️

Great experience all around. Dr Deyong and his staff are fabulous. He’s knowledgeable, patient and very personable. Explains if you have questions and great to talk to during the exam. Good listener too! I had a bit of an unusual request with respect to contact lenses but he understood where I was coming from and prescribed what I needed. His receptionist and the technician helping me pick my glasses were also super patient. I didn’t feel rushed to pick the glasses I wanted even though it took quite a while. The office is very welcoming and nicely laid out. Another big plus is that I can make an appointment online at my convenience (I know one can also call to make an appointment). I had gone to Dr Deyong’s years ago and was very happy but then moved a few towns over and since it was no longer convenient, I decided to try a place closer to me. I’m back to Dr Deyong’s even though I have to drive a bit longer. He’s worth it! :)

I arrived and was immediately greeted I updated my insurance information. I was brought in for exam with no wait. Office staff was very personable and pleasant. Dr Zastrow as always was professional took his time with the exam and explained the results. He even took the time to walk me over to pick my frames. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!
