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.

My daughter saw Dr. James. No doubt he's a very good eye doctor and her exam was very extensive. But she has adhd and autism and I had to listen to the doctor trying to educate me on her adhd and autism. We came for an eye exam and glasses, she already has a developmental pediatrician and services for her medical diagnosis. The office staff did not greet us with a hello or smile like their other customers. Some of the looks and questions asked almost felt like we were back in the 1940's.

Love them all! Dr. Pete is my eye doctor that I have went to ever since I got glasses. He makes sure to he answers all the questions you might have, and always explains things that might be going on with my eyes. The BEST eye doctor!

I see Dr. Pete and have always had very caring service from him. He checks me for glaucoma and diabetic issues, as well giving me a complete exam. A few years back, when I experienced "floaters" in my eye suddenly, they took me in on a Sunday to check and make sure I wasn't experiencing a retinal tear. I've been going to Northwest Optometry for many years and would recommend them highly to anyone looking for thorough, top-notch eye care delivered by a friendly and very competent staff.

I recommend that you use another eye doctor. I was searching for an eye doctor and thought I would try them since they were in town. My glasses were never right even though they redid them two or three times. I ended up using Costco who gave me glasses I could see out of. I wanted to return the glasses, get a refund and possibly try again next year. They did give me a refund, but the doctor and the others in the office became sort of hostile and did not treat me kindly after that and said I was no longer welcome. My family will be going elsewhere for our services in the future. You are not treated well if you disagree with the doctor. Go somewhere else for your eyes.

I have been going here for many years now and can highly recommend Northwest Optometry. Dr. Joe is my doctor. He is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He takes his time with you and is happy to answer any questions. I came to him originally because he was recommended by someone who was able to get contacts for their son who had a difficult situation. No one else had been willing to work with him except Dr.Joe. I also have a difficult situation and he has patiently worked with me, trying numerous times until we got it right. I completely trust his advise and the care he has given me all these years. The office staff is friendly and efficient. I feel lucky to have such a fine practice in our area.
