Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

Optometry is a branch of ophthalmology that specializes in methods of correcting vision using optometric aids. An optometrist is a specialist who determines the degree of vision impairment and prescribes corrective aids such as glasses and contact lenses.

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

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.

My husband and I just had our first appointment with Dr. Luu today and we were blown away by what an amazing doctor she is! I've been to different eye doctors in 7 different states (due to work relocations) and Dr. Luu is the best one we have ever been to! She explained things well, is attentive, punctual and very personable. She's also very knowledgeable and we learned things we never knew about our eyes. I can't recommend her enough!

I had my first appointment with Dr. Lu on yesterday 3/30/22. The front desk receptionist was friendly and they took me back further about 10 minutes after arriving. The Tech was friendly who did the preliminary work was very friendly and answered all of my questions. Dr. Lu was very engaging and personable. The lady who helped me with searching for my glasses, I believe it was Miranda ? was great too. Overall great team and will definitely will come back for follow up.

Purchased my glasses there earlier this year and they were ready fast also they were perfect. Later this summer I decided to get some sunglasses in my prescription and I knew exactly where to head back too. The staff are very professional and helpful and I will be back for all my glasses needs in the future .
