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.

My family has been going to archdale office which included a child to adult age and a father with dementia. They have been top notch in our book. Son moved to Penn. and started having serious eye problems. Dr Gilliam referred him to a eye doctor in Penn. Soon problem was solved. They took my dads eye glasses to another room to check them and then returned. My dad said, “that’s not my glasses” and he was right. Being from a nursing home, he had picked up someone’s else glasses. The staff said you are correct and handled an extreme upset man with dementia beautifully! They have sent my husband to an exceptional specialist. Friendly staff on the phone and in the office! Love this office! Would recommend them highly!

Horrible service. Made me stand by the door while they helped the next two people that walked in after me that did not have a appointment. One of which was there for the exact same reason I was.

I made an appointment over 6 months ago to see the doctor for a referral to have my cataracts removed. Originally a year ago -- I was told my cataracts was only 20% and the insurance will not pay until they reach 80% -- but don't worry it will not take that long. So my appointment today was for a check up and referral. When I got there the reception desk lady told me "I did not have an appointment. She also said she checked and I have never made an appointment for over a year." I told her that was not correct and showed her on my phone the email they had sent me plus about 4 other text messages. Then somewhere out of nowhere suddenly it appeared -- I canceled the only appointment I made by texting them NO. This is not true because I needed the referral. She proceed to go and talk to someone in the back. When she came back she asked me to return at 11:30 they had a cancelation. (at this point this opening could have been real or not). I did ask for the name of the doctor they send patient to for cataract removal and the other desk person gave me a card with that person's office number.

I have been going here for a few years and the service has gone steadily downhill the past couple of years. They used to be so friendly and helpful. This time when I visited I sat in the exam room for an hour and no one came in so finally walked up to the front desk. The receptionist just shrugged her shoulders with no explanation. I had been there over an hour so had to cancel to get back to work. As I walked out she told me to give her a call to reschedule. What happened to being courteous? I don't need excuses - I also work and I also have schedules and deadlines and I can't get away with treating people that way. So after all these years it's time to find a new optometrist which maybe is a good thing.

My family of 4 have been going to Triad EyeCare for 15 years. My son ended up with some metal stuck in his eyeball and we called as soon as they were open Dec 13th. I was told they were full and had no opening that day to see him. Now what optometrist office doesnt have time to see someone with an object stuck in their eyeball? We ended calling 3 other Optometrist office (where we have never gone to) and none of them had time to see him. We ended up calling the Optometrist that has an office at Walmart and they had him come in right away and cut out some of the metal and gave antibiotic eye drops. Several days later they removed more of the metal from his eye, then we went back for a 3rd recheck and all the metal was gone. My family And I will not be returning to this practice since they dont have time to care for their patients when there is actually a need. I will also be sharing this on facebook and by word of mouth to anyone that will listen.
