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.

Visiting Bergen Optometry for the first time yesterday was one of the best doctor visits I have ever experienced. The staff was extremely pleasant and the online pre-registration process made things go quickly and efficiently when i arrived. Dr. Brody was warm, kind and remarkable in the way she explained everything to me, I did not feel rushed at all. I felt like everyone had a personal interest in me. I have already recommend this practice to several friends and family.

Everyone at focus eye is friendly and helpful. Sam and Vlad are amazing! I bring my 2 year old for her glasses and they are so attentive, informative and patient with her. This is a great family friendly eye center. Dr. Esperon is fantastic! I highly recommend focus eye center.

After years of trying to get my son who is in the Autism spectrum to cooperate to get his vision tested, we visited several doctors to no avail until I found this place. I'm very thankful to Dr. Perelman and the staff at Better Sight Vision Center for their help and dedication to their patients. My son is now wearing his glasses and asks to go to the eye doctor!

I have been going to Dr. Perelman's eye care practice for a couple of years. She is patient, listens and explains your eeye care and helps you consider options. She was at Sears close to my home but when she moved her practice much further away from my home, I continued getting my eye care from her. Her team is very helpful and and pleasant. They helped me pick my frames, which I love very much.
