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.

A change in insurance meant finding a new eye care provider, and I could not be happier with Johnson Optometric Associates. Due to a cancellation in the schedule, they were able to get me in the next day. The entire staff was fabulous. I never felt rushed. Everything was well explained, and I was given plenty of opportunities to ask questions. i LOVE the frames I picked out, and I had so much fun with the whole process of choosing them. I will definitely be back, as will other members of my family.

Always feel confident with Dr. Bowers that I am getting the very best care for my eyes. Being a diabetic I feel she has the best equipment to keep a close check on my eyes. Highly recommend her.

Great experience with Dr. Bower and her staff. I have seen her for 2 years now and I've never been disappointed. She does a very thorough exam. She takes her time and answers any question one may have. She truly cares for and about her patients. I love how she explains things to where I can understand the information. She has a great personality, and very relatable. I feel safe in her care and know I'm being given the best care. If you're looking for an optometrist look no further, she's the best!

Dr. Bowers is beyond fabulous! I would give her 10 stars if I could! I was searching for a new optometrist who was thorough, pleasant, professional, attentive, caring, and available. Dr. Bowers is all these things and more! I immediately felt the warmth of the entire team when I entered the office - not like chains or “big box” eye centers. I was impressed how Dr. Bowers took the time to get to know me, my eyes, and my vision needs. She explained everything completely and patiently answered my questions. It was like reconnecting with a friend even though that was my first visit. My eyes and I are grateful to Dr. Bowers for such an excellent experience, and I will definitely see her again for any vision needs!
