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.

Warby Parker Kids FAIL. I walked through the door and the very first thing I did after the pleasantries was hand the greeter my child’s eye prescription and ask if it could be filled. The greeter confirmed it could be done. It seemed to be a busy Saturday afternoon for the store so I ushered my 2 kids directly to the table that showcased the Warby Parker Kids frames. My youngest was excited to try on the frames while my older daughter made a game of keeping track of the favorites. During our wait, the kids (the only children in the store) were given some crayons and paper play glasses to draw on (very nice). I’m confident we were skipped over as the kids found ways to patiently entertain themselves at the table. 40 minutes (!) later, a young woman, who was still attending to someone else, took the prescription and plugged the details into a tablet. An older gentleman then swooped in for a moment and took measurements. Aside from the long wait, so far, so good. At some point the two congregated next to us and they discussed the measurements amongst themselves. The older gentleman was off again and I asked if everything was okay. The younger woman reassured me that they could overcome the issue. 5 minutes later I was telling my kids that it was time to go after I was finally told by the woman that the prescription could not be filled. Why did it take an hour to figure this out? Try waiting around for an hour with a six year old and a 9 year old only to be told they can’t fill your prescription. They were completely insensitive to our needs and should have considered how hard it is for children to wait patiently. That, and the heartbreak of my 6 year old asking me “When do I get my new glasses?” after trying out glasses and having her measurements taken made for a horrible experience. Unacceptable. I will not be returning.

After using this store for over 30 years, they wont tell me my prescription. The receptionist's there were always so helpful and kind but whoever is answering the phones now was downright rude.

I was a little hesitant at first to come here because of some past reviews on here, but I'm glad I gave them a chance. The associates were very friendly and helpful in a non pushy/salesy sort of way - they gave me space to browse and try eyewear on my own and checked in often to answer questions. The eye Dr. there was very helpful and personable. He helped answer my concerns and resolve the issues from the last prescription that I got from another place which was incorrect and causing vision problems. Definitely would return, their friendliness and expertise made for a great experience.

I had a hard time finding an optician that sold regular kid frames for a 4yo who also took insurance. Most places in network only had frames for 7 and up. They were super helpful and kind, very affordable, they were knowledgeable on how to get the frames to fit her small face, and they're FAST. We got our frames in a week. We'll be back!

Unfriendly and disrespectful staff! Unfortunately they don't care about the patients. After billing ~$1300 for a routine eye exam and a pair of glasses, they throw the glasses on the desk to pick up without even checking if it fits properly or the lenses lines up with the eyes! Bad overall experience!
