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.

My wife Lillian has a very strong prescription of -12 and over the years has seen a number of different doctors. She was really never able to see as well as she would have liked and always felt something was lacking. At the suggestion of our daughter, who lives in NJ, we came to see Dr. Greenberg.of Old Bridge Vision. His level of professionalism, understanding of her needs, care, knowledge and concern were unmatched by any of the many other doctors we visited. Dr. Greenberg fitted her with progressive lenses which have been just wonderful. Her eyesight has improved 10 fold. In addition Dr. Greenberg's staff were all most helpful, friendly and generally added to our feeling of our overall satisfaction. We would highly recommend Old Bridge Vision Center.

I purchased some glasses this weekend and Linet was a standout. She was kind, cheerful, laid back and in the end extremely helpful when I asked for advice. She helped me narrow down my selections and made the checkout process straightforward and easy.

The service was phenomenal. Everybody was so nice and wanted to help. Overall I had a good experience until after I left. They wouldn't give me a prescription for my contacts and insisted I do a week trial (although I've been wearing the same lenses forever) because I'm a new patient as per laws. Of course I had no choice, so I said ok order the trial pair. They told me it would take 2 weeks to get the pair then id have to wear them a week and return for a follow up before I could get my prescription. I didn't mind although I thought it was silly we had to do this. Here we are 2 months later and I still have no trial pair, no prescription, and no lenses. Thank god I got glasses, otherwise I'd be screwed! To be honest even if I wanted to order contacts from them now I won't because this is pretty ridiculous. At this point I just want my prescription and to be done.

incredible office, incredible eye exam... My whole family and I have been going to old bridge vision for the last 20 years and have had only positive experiences. We are always greeted by the staff with a warm smile and greeting.they are always extremely helpful in assisting with our frame selection, and boy do they have a lot of incredible frames to choose from. Dr. Greenberg is clearly an expert in the field and is kind and patient and takes the time to explain everything. It is easy to tell that the equipment is state of the art and over the years I have seen many new additions in the office to keep things modern and current. You definitely get a lot for your money and it is extremely worth it. If I ever have any questions, there is always someone to ask and help. I would never go anywhere else…highly recommended.

Great experience! I have only had wonderful experiences here after looking for a place for so long. The staff was so friendly when I walked in and answered all my questions. They had a large selection of frames to choose from and we found frames for everyone in the family and they were ready very quickly. The staff even helped us pick them out showing us which frames would look best on each person! Dr. Greenberg gave me a very thorough exam and explained everything fully and answered all my questions patiently going through every aspect of the exam. I would definitely come back here and recommend it for anyone who wants a great exam that was quite reasonable too! Great place!
