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 no idea visiting an eye doctor could be such a wonderful experience! I am fairly new to the area and kept postponing an eye exam. After yesterday’s appointment, I actually look forward to going back. The entire experience was very positive from the moment I was greeted, to the time I left. Everyone was caring, friendly, energetic, and very thorough. All around, I felt 100% taken care of. This office and their doctor are top notch providers in my opinion!

I was recommended this location after two great personal reviews. We moved from Arizona this summer and I had a great eye doctor. After moving, I made an appointment with University Eye Associates on this past Monday and ended up walking out mid-appointment due to the awful customer service. After being recommended this place, I called the same day, not expecting to get an appointment until next year, and they were able to get me in on Friday (today)! That’s amazing! This place is SO cute and clean and new! I was greeted immediately and checked in. I initially thought my appointment was at 11:30, but it was actually at 11:45. Regardless, they still got me in right away. I had the absolute pleasure of having Dr. Ferris as my eye doctor. She is so smart and so friendly and 110% will be back because of her! This was such a quick and great appointment. I have found my new eye doctor and I cannot wait to go back next year! I really recommend this place and will have my parents go here as well!

Dr. T and his staff were amazing with my toddler! They made her feel welcomed and comfortable. They rolled out the red carpet for her with toys, a movie to watch to distract her from the eye exam to the balloon and cute shades to wear after her eyes were dilated! We will always come here!

I wanted to give this place a second chance. The exam took maybe 10 minutes. She looked in my eye but it was just awkward. She didn’t tell me what she was doing or what she was looking for. Because I am used to doctors explaining what they are doing and then direct me on what to do, this just seemed off. And I usually get tested for other things as well. No mention of pupil dilation or air puff test. So I never received any of those the both times I visited. I feel like I was cheated on my eye exam. She also didn’t tell me to have a good day. She just gave me my contacts to try on and walked away. It was just a weird experience overall.
