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 an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

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.

What does an optometrist do?

Functionality: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services.

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.

The doctors at Cherry Vision Center are friendly, professional, and take the time to understand you and answer your questions. Going to the doctor is not my preferred activity, but the staff made me feel comfortable and made my visit pleasurable. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an optometrist. i definitely trust them and am much less anxious about my eye care.

I've been going to this office for a few years now, and each year when I come back for my exam it's worse. They are usually behind schedule by more than 15 minutes. I've even had an instance where I showed up for my confirmed appointment, only to find that a member of their personnel had cancelled my appointment after confirming it. Instead of trying to work me in, as it was their error, they made me reschedule but couldn't get me in again until more than a month later. My son is now at an age where he needs an eye exam, but when I called to schedule him as a new patient, the person I spoke to on the phone refused to schedule him because he has a developmental disability. Her exact words were "you really need to take him somewhere else. We don't help people with special needs here."

Visited this Eye Practice Cherry Vision Center for the first time this year. Dr. Holler was decent but got my prescription wrong even after 2 corrective visits. The staff in the office and consultants for eye glasses are absolutely horrible. They all were very condescending and rude. All they want is your money. Not helpful with picking out cheaper frames/glasses or all the options needed with them. Nor do they fully explain their return policy. After 2 corrective visits and sending my new frames/prescription back for correction they are still wrong and they will not allow me to return them. Only offered me to see another doctor in the practice. No thank you! Avoid this practice if you can. Going back to my original Doctor at Sylvania EyeCare Specialties of Ohio! I recommend you go to a different practice or even Costco eye care as those two practices treat their patients with ultimate respect and help them to save money not take it away from you.

This is a response to Vanessa Wright's review below. Unfortunately we are unable to login and respond under the Dr Rick Cherry, OD account. We are sorry to hear you are unhappy with your last telephone experience with the office. By law an eyeglass prescription is good for only two years. The prescription you were requesting was well past the two years. As we explained, you can get a copy of the RX. The prescription will say its expired. Two years ago we were going through the COVID outbreak. During that time Dr Cherry O.D did only allow one exam done at a time due to social distancing and the size of the waiting area and exam rooms. Please feel free to call the office if you would like to discuss this further.

Dr. Andrea Prinstein, Lisa, and everyone else at FPV are awesome. I love the quality of their work, the selection of frames, and the hours they are open. My daughter has missed appointments and they have worked her in even though they are busy. They are super easy to work with and really do care about their patients. I highly recommend them!
