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.

What is the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

What does an optometrist do?

Functionality: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services.

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.

Mark Collins  |  Rating: 1  |  Pearle Vision

The progressive glasses they tried to sell me for $725 after insurance I found at another Pearle Vision for $403 (after insurance & tax. No charge for the eye exam). The bifocal glasses they did sell me left me wondering how they ever put out product like that. Terrible. Actually diminished my vision. I returned those glasses for a refund and purchased at the other Pearle Vision. Buyer beware

Shaw's Opticians is the most phenomenally professional business I have ever known. My children and I have appreciated the opportunity to be a part of such a great group of people. I am always treated as though I was the only one there! One little tidbit of information I came across, purely by chance, surprised even me. After eating the entire staff brush their teeth! I was inquiring and I was told that they do this because they work so closely with the clients and they don't want to offend anyone with stinky breath! Wow! Once I thought about it, it made perfect sense. Now I wonder ... Do other businesses have such a considerate rule for the benefit of their clients? Shaw's Opticians is by far the best business - bar none! I would challenge anyone to find a better business anywhere! For professionalism, kindness, great atmosphere, knowledge, consideration, joyful dispositions ..... I could go on and on! Shaw's is where I tell everyone to go for eyecare. Once you go, you will agree they are the best❣️

Very unprofessional and unhelpful! Don't waste your money. I had my eye exam here three weeks ago. Got my new eyeglasses with the prescription they provided. Very uncomfortable(blurry vision and caused me headache) I know it takes awhile to get used to the new prescription. After a week, still have the same issues. Previously my both eye had slight correction for astigmatism(by other optometrist). So I noticed the optometrist who filled the my new prescription did not test astigmatism at all. So I went back and told them the situation. Scheduled to have my eye re-evaluated. The only answer the optometrist told me was "I don't know why" even after I told her about the astigmatism issue. Basically saying it's my problem that I cannot see things clear. Did not make any effort to provide assistance for me or anything. So I made another eye exam with a more professional optometrist(should've come here the first place) which proves that the prescription I recieved from here is wrong and I do need astigmatism correction. Very upset that I paid $62 for a wrong prescription.

I have been a customer at Vision Works for years…… up until VSP took over it was a good place to come to. Since last year or more your store seems real less professional! I have had to go back multiple times to have my glasses adjusted, as it was the desk girl doing the adjustments…….are they trained to do such… she was adjusting my glasses while on the phone.
