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.

Do not waste your time or money buying from the vision center. The optometrist is super friendly, yet when the staff can't fill your prescription correctly there is a problem. He did get the problem corrected and I do recommend dr. Hannon. I strongly suggest going elsewhere to fill the prescription.

My son had a great experience during his eye exam with Dr. Atkinson. He’s very knowledgeable and provided excellent quality service. The office has exceptional customer service skills. I’m very satisfied with the care my son received. I will definitely go back for myself and my son’s next eye exam!

My Husband and I just went to this office for the first time and I have to say my glasses are perfect! I can see so clearly! My Husband got glasses as well and he loves his also! Dr. Atkinson is so professional and you can tell he really cares about his patients. The glasses are so affordable and you don’t feel like you are being pressured to purchase something you will not love. They have a large selection of glasses! The office staff members are so nice and so helpful! The ladies in the office really go the extra mile for you. I would highly recommend taking your family here! Side note we came in with a 7 month old baby and everyone was so nice to him also! Thank you so much Atkinson Eye Care for the excellent experience!

Amazing service and people! I was nervous, I haven't had an eye exam in a very long time and everyone took such great care of me. Ms. Annette took the best care of me making sure I had a great pair of glasses that fit well and looked great and was the right option for me. Dr. Ryan was knowledgeable and kind and fast. Also I am a bigger person so I was nervous about seat size and maybe being treated differently but honestly- I couldn't of felt more comfortable. Thank you all for making my visit so pleasant.

Horrible! Had to get a contact lens exam. Doctor I seen had gave me a trail and said the left contact is a few off because they didn't have the one I needed, she said it should be fine to go home with it, vision might be a tad bit off. Witch was my first red flag! I'd rather have waited for the right ones. I go back because my vision is blurry with the monthly trial contacts. So go back after a week of using those contacts. The doctor had me wear my contacts and adjusted the glass pieces in front of my eyes and asked witch looks clearer she did a few of them. She made sure I could see clear and held them in front of both eyes and they seemed good. She said okay the contacts should be here in a week or so we will call you when they are ready and I'll write you a new prescription paper work when you pick them up. I go up there nobody wrote me a prescription paper work for them. I just called today and the lady on the phone I believe jackaline answered and said she wasn't gonna be in till may and she didn't see anything in my file that I needed a new paper work with the new numbers for my new contacts she adjusted that there wasn't anything she could do... Do you know what I can do? I paid almost $200!?
