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.

Making my appointment was super easy & fast, and they have 3 days a week when they are open till 7pm, great for not having to leave work early. Louise is great, she checked me in and started my checkup. Answered all my questions and showed me my insurance coverage, copays & explained it all. The dr. was very nice & funny, made it very easy & pleasant. I highly recommend!

Every time I visit Galvin Eyes (since about 1990), it is a wonderful experience! First of all, Dale is a wonderful, friendly receptionist who is always smiling and ready for any smart remarks made. Dr. Peter Galvin is thorough and very patient in explaining any change in the plan of action. Finally, it is a pure pleasure to interact with Gwen as she helps me select my glasses and then makes sure they fit properly when they are delivered. This is an office that I would visit anytime, any day to get professional service in a friendly, warm atmosphere, even @5am on a Sunday!

Terrible customer service. The doctor was great. The lady was talking super fast walking all around and acting super super busy and I was the only one in there. I'd ask her a question and she'd fire off this super fast foreign language then proceed to walk circles around the room. Maybe I was on a practical joke show or something.

Shame on Galvin Eyes! This office refuses to take my daughter as a patient. Why? Because we need help. Because she is on state medicaid (Horizon NJ Health). The practice is in network with Horizon NJ Health and, as per the HNJH website IS taking new patients. Needing help does not make my daughter a second class citizen, and she deserves care too!
