Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

Optometry is a branch of ophthalmology that specializes in methods of correcting vision using optometric aids. An optometrist is a specialist who determines the degree of vision impairment and prescribes corrective aids such as glasses and contact lenses.

What is the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

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 was in a lot of pain and tearing and could barely open my eyes and both eyes extremely sensitive to light! Franklin family eye care was able to give me an appointment immediately within 2 hours of me telling them my condition and the doctor put me at ease immediately with her care! I had a corneal abrasion from a foreign body .I was free from pain and tearing with her treatment, both the doctor and the front desk staff were very caring and considerate and I would highly recommend Franklin family eye care for all .

I’ve been going to Dr. Wong for years and he’s my favorite doctor of all time. He’s extremely personable, professional, and knowledgeable. He’s also funny and easy to talk to. The front desk employees have also always been wonderful as well. 10/10!

My experience today at Family Eye Care was great! The doctor as well as the person that helped me through all of the testing were super thorough and answered all of my questions. Tawe helped me choose my frames and walked me through transitioning to progressive lenses which I was originally not going to consider. He was personable, kind and listened to my concerns. I never felt rushed and appreciated the time that he spent helping me. I'd highly recommend their practice.

Dr.Wong and his staff are very professional and kind. Scheduling was very quick and they had very easy forms to fill out. Talking with Dr.Wong felt very natural and friendly. He gave me so much information I didn’t know about with my eyes. I would come again next year!

If you are considering about coming to franklin family eyecare in somerset, nj because of the reviews, don’t! They use scheming sales tactics like “the price of your glasses with the eye exam is $211,” trying to manipulate you into thinking your insurance doesn’t fully cover the eye exam, which they do. They have provided me the wrong perscriton twice josephine ngong, o.d, signed my prescription. But I never met her. She wasn’t my optometrist my biggest regret is my insurance covers one annual eye exam, and I wasted it here. There is something fishy going on in this place. On top of everything above, during my eye exam, the optometrist mentioned I have mild astigmatism, which will be corrected in my new prescription. When I asked for a copy of my prescription, I noticed they didn’t include the astigmatism correction, and it was -3.5. This means the person upfront was going to order you glasses with the wrong prescription! The front desk informed the optometrist there was no correction for astigmatism in my prescription. The optometrist then wanted to perform another exam for astigmatism (meaning she never did one, to begin with). After I was done with the second exam, they handed me the wrong prescription again without the correction at -3.5! They said they would email me the prescription, and when I got the email, it was -3.25, which is weird because the optometrist told me she would give me -3.5 and it was signed by josephine ngong, o.d. Who I never met. Overall, my visit felt rushed and pressured to buy products. I didn’t even know if I needed the astigmatism correction or did, they mention it so I could purchase overpriced glasses/lenses from them directly. My biggest regret is my insurance covers one annual eye exam, and I wasted it here. 5/25/2022: I want to follow up with my review from my visit today. I saw dr. Jo who was professional and took her time with the exam. The prescription was slightly different then the previous optometrist prescribed but dr. Jo explained me the nature of those differences. I recommend coming to the clinic as dr. Jo's patient.
