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 came to Dr. Duke to address difficulty with double vision. He truly is "not your ordinary eye doctor!" He took the time to give a thorough exam and now i can see clearly close up (as in reading music) and far away as for driving. I fully recommend Dr. Dukes and his staff for personal service and professional competence.

Dr. Dukes is nicest Doctor I know. Not only has he been my entire families Eye Doctor for years. He actually took the time to come in on a holiday because my nine year daughter got a piece of piñata stuck in her eye. She was in a lot of pain and Dr. Dukes was wonderful with her (she had a corneal laceration).HIs gentle nature and calm demeanor put her at ease. His staff is fun, laid back and very knowledgeable. They have the best selection of frames in the valley. The Doctor's wife, Melissa, made picking out glasses fun. Talk about personalized service! Who knew that glasses can be part of your fashion accessories? The Dukes are a hard working and down to earth team. These guys are the best. Sarah-

Dr. Dukes is the best! He was the only one to find, explain and correct my problem. He and his staff are so professional and helpful. I get, by far, the best professional and personal care there. Plus they have the widest selection of interesting and fashionable frames.

We've had only great experiences here. They took an immense amount of time over the course of a few months, for free, helping my 12 year old learn how to put in contacts, and were very good with her. We had been to a few different optometrists in Ashland (both my daughters wear glasses), and once we tried these guys out we new we had found people we could count on and stick with.

Unbelievable! Amazing people here. I lost a pair of glasses and my spare pair were really flimsy. Leaving for a trip in a few days, so it was kind of an emergency to get new ones. Same day appointment, eye exam and new frame/lenses in 65 minutes total. Special thanks to the front desk staff Chris and Veronica for understanding the urgency and for making it all happen! THANK YOU! :-)
