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.

Awesome. Fabulous. Professional. Personable. Meticulous. Exacting. Friendly. Great prices. Great service. Accommodating. Glasses in ONE HOUR! No attitude. No “get ‘em in get ‘em out”! Not correct? They fix it with kindness and on ONE HOUR!

Williamsville Optical has been our go to optician for many years. The selections are great and Liz is always on top of what styles work for your face. Additionally, professional attitude with personal service is very helpful in making sure all the details are covered.

My second visit to the best eye care center in WNY was just as pleasant as the first! The entire staff provides excellent customer service with no wait time whatsoever. First of all, Dr Myers was patient and informative (I suggest getting the high tech photograph test), then Robin’s savvy fashion sense tailored to the individual helped me select just the right Chanel frames. Most impressive was Therese’s patience, kindness and bubbly personality while meticulously fitting me for the new glasses, as well as adjusting and cleaning the two pair which I purchased from them last year. Jonathan was terrific (once again) when lenses came in. Highly recommend!

I had went their to purchase glasses a year ago. I already had an exam somewhere else but the place I had the exam didn't sell glasses. I don't know if it was because of this that they treated me so poorly but should not be an excuse. They gave me attitude when I asked questions when their to pick out frames and also when I picked them up, like I should have already known the answer. They probably hear the same questions over and over but it's no excuse to treat people that way. Will never go their again. Love my glasses though. And it seems my eye pain is decreased since new prescription and not having progressive lenses anymore.

I absolutely love Dr. Meyers. He is always so pleasant when I come in for my yearly contact exam. He takes the time to talk to me not just as a patient but about life in general. My contacts are always in stock. And my solution is always free! Ashley is super friendly when cashing out too! Very knowledgeable and an infectious smile. Thanks for taking care of my blind eyes guys!
