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.

Dr. Williams and her staff are excellent on all levels. They're professional, prompt, polite, and - unlike many eye establishments - don't hard sell services and coatings. I didn't look too long at frames since I kept my current ones, but the selection seems fashionable. Lastly, my new prescription was done right, and on the first attempt. They also arrived well before the original 10 day estimate, which is a plus.

Went in as a walk-in which they usually dont do they took me in right away knowing my symptoms. Front desk staff is very nice and also the doctor took his time to examine me and explain to me what i had. And gave me.a follow up for next week, great experience.

Dr. Vigario is an AMAZING doctor! I loved going to her, she really does a full detailed check on your eyes. The wait times are kind of long but I guess it's worth it for the service. Sadly they don't work with my insurance provider anymore so I have to look for a new eye doctor.

In response to Islam Ahmad review posted on 6/5/2017. Eyes on you is very dedicated to eye care services and we have to be very thorough as far as verifying insurances prior to all patients visits. However, in your case, this office was told by you that you do not have coverage for a routine eye examination through your current insurance and that you want to come in for a routine eye examination. When you do not have comprehensive routine eye examination coverage there will be a fee. You came in for a routine eye examination knowing that you did not have this coverage. You were told the no insurance price fee.. After knowing this you wanted you wife to have the routine examination for glasses to be done as medical and have that claim go through the medical insurance. This can not be done. We can not do fraudulent claims and bill a routine as a medical when you have done a routine eye examination. After coming 15 minutes late for your scheduled appointment you then changed her routine examination to medical only visit, which we will see her only for her medical eye issue only. We are unable to verify insurance coverage at that time because we have to speak to a representative at the insurance and you were told that they already close at 5pm. Verifying insurance is extremely important. This helps you to understand your coverage and aids us to know the details of your insurance and copays if any, this prevents you from getting an unforeseen bill. We then told you that we were happy to service after verifying insurance coverage and will be able to see you tomorrow. Because of poor communication to the staff the insurance was not verified for medical eye visit. Reviews help us to improve as a practice however in this case all the protocols was followed to try to prevent this situation. In closing, when you call in to say that you are coming in for a non-medical visit that is a routine eye examination and you know that you do not have routine eye examination coverage on your insurance there is no reason to call the insurance.
