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.

I'm not typically one to write I review however I see a tread of customers being treated badly, and when I chose to spend my money with an establishment I expect to be treated with respect and kindness, which are the same qualities I bring to the table when I deal with anyone. I like to use local providers in my community, rather than frequent the larger chain establishments. This 1 star rating is based upon, my initial phone inquiry to Our Village Optician. I called the office to inquire about services, and was promptly, rudely stopped, and reminded that opticians do not perform eye exams, I was told I'd need to call an Ophthalmologist, in a rather condescending tone. A gentle reminder would have been welcomed, however, I was interrupted mid-sentence with "let me stop you right there". At any rate, if I were going to get an eye exam elsewhere and then come to Our Village Optician to purchase my glasses, I will not at this point. A first impression is still what wins most over, this was most definitely not a good first impression of the business. I'm not sure who I spoke with, but do not believe it was the owner.

I had a similar experience to Treena's. I stopped in about a month ago to see what kind of frames they have. The door was locked but no sign. It was a weekday around 11:00am. I called their number and the answering machine told me they were closed until 2:00pm. Fair enough. I came back today. Was there about 10 minutes and was told I needed to leave because they had to go to lunch and the bank. But nowhere on the door, in the shop or website is it mentioned they close for lunch. The eye glass frames may be nice but the service is POOR.

I love my new glasses! The charming shop where you are treated like a friend is only the beginning. Lee Lee gently guides you to several selections and lets you make the best decision. Recently, I had a friend visiting from Hawaii who needed new glasses. We went to Lee Lee and she helped her with exactly what she needed. Lee Lee is not selling you glasses, she is guiding you to a life style of enjoying them. Also, Linda has a great candy dish! Thanks Lee Lee and Linda
