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.

I had such a great experience working with Kim to find the perfect glasses! She was patient as I tried on so many frames and gave me just the right amount of guidance to find the perfect frame that works best with my prescription, style and fit. Her boutique has a wonderful selection of unique styles. I've gotten so many compliments on my new frames.

I had a terrible pain in my eye that I needed to have looked at. All the urgent care places were booked up. I called Black Mountain Family eye care. After explaining, they were able to get me in right away. The staff are very accommodating including Jennifer. Within minutes, she determined I had an abrasion on my cornea. An antibiotic was ordered and I’ve been using it ever since. It’s a topical cream. Every day I’m been feeling better. I would highly recommend them for all your eye care needs

The staff and doctor were all very professional and kind. Each person seemed to care about me and my vision. This was my first visit, as I moved to Black Mountain last year and had to switch from my long-time optometrist. I was made to feel comfortable and everything was explained very well.
