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.

All the staff was nice, knowledgeable and professional. I was put on the cancellation list for new patients and was seen a month before my appointment! Dr. Walker makes the experience so much fun and relaxed. Definitely recommend.

I have been taking my family here for years. Dr. Walker is a funny guy that makes an eye exam painless. Until today, we would never consider going somewhere else. My wife wears contacts, has for years. When she went in for her exam today, they tried to charge her an extra $60 for a first time fitting. I could see it, if it were her first time getting contacts here. But they said they "always charge that fee" even though it was not her first time, nor her first time with Walker Eye Care. Just lost another customer to Wal-Mart!

Dr. Kernodle has prescribed contact lenses and glasses for me. I'm happy with the expertise, service, and care received by the doctor and staff. It's great to have good optical care available in town.

I was very impressed with the whole experience from making the first phone call. Thank you Kris for getting me in so quickly you are fabulous. Then I went in and told them everything I wanted and ask them how my insurance worked and to break it all down for me bc I had been somewhere else and they claimed things on my insurance that wasn’t actually done so I had to wait a year to actually get my eyes checked. Anyway they explained everything down to the penny. Then the doctor came in and examined me and explained things to me about my eyes that no doctor has ever explained. Then told me how to protect my vulnerable eyes. NO optometrist has done that before. I was not treated like a number they were thorough and patient with me. The experience was excellent. Thank you to all the staff you all are great.

I love all the doctors there. Not happy with my glasses. I got the glasses to read but not good. Have to take them off and get reading glasses to even see my phone without getting a headache. They would not do anything about it. $250 wasted
