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.

Incredibly thorough eye exams. Doctor and other staff are great with kids. Just completed a follow-up visit for my son with the original exam being about three months ago. After both visits, I left feeling that the doctor and staff truly cared about my son. I couldn’t be more happy with our experience.

In a world where good customer service and the old adage of treating others the way you would like to be treated has disappeared. It was really great to find a place where all this is still true. The doctor was very knowledgeable and took the time necessary to ensure that I received just the right prescription. He has a unique and innovative way of determining the strength of the prescription necessary; that isn’t the traditional “is this better or worse” or “is this better or worse”. The staff was super friendly, honest and just really cool. Additionally, I did not have to wait six months to get an appointment unlike the previous place that I had been going to for more then 15 years. I typically do not take the time to review anything because very little these days warrants a good review. If you don’t have anything good to say you shouldn’t say anything at all, that’s what my mother always told me. But this place was just so good that I felt I should share my opinion. Give them a try, I don’t think that you can find a better eye care place in Clayton.

It was the first time going to Eyecare concepts. It’s a place were you can go to get the kind of service your looking for. Everyone was very polite, and caring. I’ve been to a few eye care places before, but none gave me the care I received there. I will definitely go back, and would recommend them to everyone.

First I'd like to say the doctor here is good. He is professional and I've never had a problem with the eye exam procedure. The problem came with ordering glasses in the store. I picked out my glasses and ordered them. One week later I stopped by to see if they were done. They were still at the lab and I was told it would be 3 more days. I went home and a couple hours later I got a call. The clerk said the lab called and they don't carry the frames I ordered anymore. I asked why did it take them so long to tell her that they didn't have them and apparently there was no excuse. I then decided to take my business to Eyemart Express for 1 hour service, so I called to get my prescription faxed to them. I was told the doctor was at another clinic and wouldn't be in til noon and he would sign it and fax it to Eyemart Express. By 1:30 there was still no fax so I called Walmart back, this time on the glasses side of the center. I was then told I'd have to sign a release form to send the fax. I said the person I talked to at 9 that morning should have told me that. This whole experience has been a fiasco. I won't buy glasses here again, but I still like the eye doctor. That's why I gave them a 3 instead of a lower rating.

I chose eyecare concepts because of the education of the optometrists and reviews of the practice. I saw Dr. Wilkins who was friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. The staff of the practice were well trained and provided very good customer service. The optician I worked with helped me select my new glasses and asked questions to ensure I would had new glasses that fit me and my everyday activities. I would definitely recommend eyecare concepts to others.
