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’ve been seeing Dr. Shuke for several years. He has a friendly demeanor and is a consummate professional. He is “patient-focused” and consistently seeks feedback throughout the appointment. I always leave feeling like my questions were answered and that my needs were met. I wholeheartedly recommend visiting with Dr. Shuke if you are looking for an Optometrist in the Lancaster County area.

I have also been a patient of Dr Shuke for many years. I appreciate the time he takes to discuss everything with me. Staff is also very helpful at the desk and when choosing new glasses. Highly recommend Ephrata Family Eye Care!

This was my first ever appointment with an eye doctor. They were super kind and stepped me through each part of the process, explaining everything as we went along. I never felt pressured to do or buy anything that I wasn’t comfortable with. I thought this was just some thing I needed to do, but now I’m excited about getting my first pair of glasses.

This location has canceled scheduled appointments twice the day before appointment citing staffing shortages that evidently only occur the day before my appt to get a tutorial on using contacts. I asked to waive the training as it's been over a month since original appt and they refuse citing legal reasons. So they won't waive training and continue to cancel appointments the day before. Very poorly managed location. Find another option if you can! I won't be back.

Great service and great doctors; Dr. Shuke (my favorite and also my neighbor) always takes careful time to make sure I have the strength I need. Only problem is that my head is really big and they often don’t have more than 2 pairs that fit my head.
