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.

I should have walked out the minute I witnessed a customer asking for a refund...glasses in hand she advised they were no good and she blatantly said..I DON'T WANT TO DO BUISNESS WITH THIS PLACE...but I decided to stay bc my experience with them in the past had been a pleasant one...everyone but the actual doctor was in a crabby mood. The place was jammed pack and very few employees. The front end was nasty..the service as a hole was not a good one..Wil not recommend this location to anyone. People deserve to be treated with respect.

This is the 2nd time I've gone there the 1st time I only had an eye exam and it was fine. This time I decided let me try to get glasses so I went in thinking I was going to get 2 pairs of glasses with the free eye exam and my contact lens exam and my insurance would cover it and I know I had to pay something out of pocket but no big deal. I had the exam Dr. Wang very nice gentleman seems to be quite thorough. After the exam I went out and started looking for frames I actually found 2 pairs that I really really liked that were on the 2 for 69.99 wall but when I sat down with the girl she told me that they were 2 for a 112.00. I was a bit annoyed but really really liked them so I conceded. Then I gave her my insurance information which I made sure I checked before I went in there and she told me that with there system I only got a discount it didn't cover anything. I have United health care global not only does it cover a full exam it gives me discounts on any additional things I want to put on lenses. Unfortunately all I ended up receiving was an insurance plan discount of $5 off of the repeat contacts lens exam and then an estimated insurance payment of $45 so I still ended up paying $39 for the exam. Fast track a week and a 1/2 later my glasses came in. I went in the young man that helped me was very nice gave me my glasses and I left the store and then went straight home to try them on and inspect them. One pair is great... the other pair The pair that I really really love has some sort of film on the front of it on the sides outside of the lenses kind of looks like when you get hair spray on a mirror so a whole bunch a little little dots that you can tell something was put on it and not taken off. They look like someone wore them for a couple years... I didn't wanna try to fix it myself so I went back over there and the assistant manager was helping me. I showed him the glasses and told him the problem, he tells me OK takes them puts him in some machine when they come out of the machine he takes them over a rinses them in the sink comes back over and dries them with paper towel rubbing the sides.. Then I can see him rubbing on the sides rubbing rubbing rubbing rubbing he couldn't get it off but he kept trying. When he hands them back to me and I tell him that its still there and I can still see that it's still there and he goes yeah that's just from the coating that they sprayed on the lenses. Well guess what the lens package I bought comes with uncoated lenses so now I'm very very upset because he lied right to my face he knew there was something wrong with the frames. All I wanted was for him to say I don't know what that is let me swap out the frames for you the lenses are already done. So now not only will I not recommend this place I won't ever be going back! So disappointed

I have been going to Dr. Bucharowski for a few years now and he is the only optometrist I trust with my eyes. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and always looking out for his patients. His staff are professional and competent. This is exactly the type of doctor you want.

Dr. Kim was so thorough and helpful. My right lens prescription took some trial and error to figure out the most comfortable contacts. He explained to me exactly what was going on with my astigmatism and how the contact rotates, and therefore is not at one size fits all fit. Im super happy with my lenses now. Thanks Dr Kim!

I had a pleasant experience here taking an eye exam. Customer service was very fast and precise. Dr. Padamadan was very reliable and answered all my questions. Overall, I am happy with the service.
