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.

Fabulous. Technicians Jasmine and Macy were warm, skilled and efficient. Dr Moss made me feel like a superstar and was also knowledgeable and moved things along at a good pace. Bryan and Allie were individually super but as a duo they were dynamo. Lots of laughter along with excellent care, advice and guidance. Thank you!

My family and I have received the finest vision care from Carrboro Family Vision for over 20 years now. Attention to the details always delivered in a friendly atmosphere. And they’ve helped our contact-wearers who needed a last minute order several times!

I can not say enough great things about these two offices! I originally met Dr. White at their new location In Chapel Hill. Dr. White provided the most detailed and thorough exam I have ever had. I was having an acute issue and he was determined to help me with a solution! The front office staff were friendly and knowledgeable. They found a way to work me in on same day notice as I was leaving for vacation the next day! I just had my follow up appointment at the Carrboro office and the amazing care continued on. Kelly was so kind and displayed great energy throughout our time together! She was attentive to all of my updates and very detailed oriented. Thank you to both offices for the genuine care and exceptional customer service! I will be recommending you to everyone!

Dr. Woodard is a thoughtful and deeply knowledgeable practitioner. He has a great passion for his field. He is very easy to work with- a very gentle manner combined with strong convictions. He has helped me tremendously and I will miss him when I no longer need therapy.
