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.

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.

The facility, staff and owners are amazing. Very helpful in all aspects from the eye exam to choosing the right frames for you. It is clear that customer service is their priority and I would recommend anyone to them any day. Thank you again to all of you at NMEC.

I've been going to this particular vision center the last 4 years and it has been great for me. I have actually had the same person order my sets of glasses each time and the experience has been quick and painless. Prices are on par for a slightly better savings and let's face it, I'm shopping here anyway.

We are a small business who supplies Optical products all around the United State. Richard order from us, received the product and has been refusing to pay for what he received. This is bad business and is not tolerated in the business world. He has lots of complaints about doing bad business all over. He should have to close his practice and never reopen again...Unless all debt is paid! HE'S A SCAM & WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY! NO STARS!

Dropped my glasses off on a Friday, I was told by a Robert working there that it would be finished on Monday and he would call me. No one called me, I left several messages, and no one is returning my call. This was my only pair of glasses, and I feel like I've been lied to and scammed. All this after me and Robert discussed how "big box" stores are pushing local businesses out. Well, maybe if local businesses provided the same professional level of service, they wouldn't be "pushed out". I'm incredibly upset that I have gone for so long without glasses and will now likely have to make an appointment with an eye doctor for an exam just to get another pair of glasses. I definitely do not recommend this scam shop.

The site to check my insurance was down, the staff were very accommodating for this inconvenience. During the entire process, they were pleasant and explained every step. We will be going back to that location for our vision needs.
