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 staff here is amazing! The list of great employees starts with a super star boss gail who’s willing to go to every extreme for her customers, their assistant manager abby is insanely knowledgeable and helpful! They have lovely techs Madisyn, Melissa and Kaylee all of who will set you at ease before seeing the drs! You’ll be lucky to sit with any of the sales associates! Sonya will get you everything you need, Duane has years of experience, angel is lovely! Every one of them personable and helpful! Not to mention getting checked in is easy with their receptionist kali! Highly recommend this place to anyone!

Unorganized, and unpressional. A receptionist at the counter booked my future appointment which I had to wait 2 months for, AT THE WRONG LOCATION When I got to my appointment they called the location that it was scheduled for and the doctor said he wanted me to reschedule AGAIN, and the soonest appointment was in February! Why should customers be inconvenienced at the mistake of your employees?! I will be finding a new eye care provider as my second exeperience was anything but pleasant.

Total rip off! Went here a few months back because I purchased a Groupon for $200 toward a complete pair of eyeglasses. There are no prices on anything and the creepy, unfriendly salesman said he would "total up everything for me once I was ready." I ended up picking out a GENERIC pair of wire framed glasses. After tallying everything up and deducting my $200 coupon, my grand total was $389...without an eye exam! That means that a generic pair of glasses would have cost $589 if I didn't have a coupon???! I find that hard to believe. I really liked the glasses and had already purchased the Groupon, so stupid me went along with it. He refused to itemize my bill and just said that my glasses would be ready in 7-10 days. Finally, THREE WEEKS later my glasses arrived. The real kicker is that I went shopping with my husband yesterday for his glasses (somewhere else of course), and saw my EXACT FRAMES FOR $99...and they weren't even on sale! Uugh, do I feel stupid. :(

I have glaucoma that requires medication daily. For 3 years I have not been able to get a timely refill when my prescription runs out despite phone calls from my self and my pharmacy. The gap has been anywhere from a week to 10 days this episode... They blame this on Rite Aid, however I have no problem with medications from other physicians! I walk in today to chase down my medication and am met with the yearly shoulder shrug, excuses and 0 compassion. In fact, they apologize to the other customers (because I’m some sort of inconvenience to them and not their patient?) Where is my apology ? I’m youR patient you are not serving!
