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.

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 had a positive experience at this office. I arrived to my appointment early and was greeted immediately and all staff were friendly. Dr. B was pleasant and knowledgeable as well. I let good about the entire experience and will be going back to this office and seeing Dr. B as my optometrist for all future needs. I would recommend this location to anyone who is looking for an optometrist.

I cant say enough great things about this place. They have always worked with me with different ins co. I have been going here almost 25 yrs. They take very good care of you. If you are worried about something just ask to see what can be done and they will look for different options that may work for you.

My daughter told me how wonderful Dr. John is so I was so looking forward to my appointment, and for appointments for my two sons eye checkups as well. However, the three office workers made so many mistakes and fabrications, and were even downright rude, that I'm afraid to switch to that office now! I've never seen such unprofessional bungling office workers in my life. I think I'll pass thank you.

Never going there again. I brought my grandmother there for her annual eye exam and was attended by Dr. John Leffers, who was extremely unprofessional. There was a language barrier and I was there to translate for my grandmother. Throughout the entire first half of the exam he had little to no patience at all when I was translating the instructions to her and felt rushed. During the part of the exam were the Dr. Leffers would check which lenses best fit her vision he made unprofessional comments stating “it was funny that she kept selecting option 1 for the best fit”. If someone is stating that the lenses are clear for them and it happens to be option 1, I do not see how that is “funny” and there is no need for sarcasm. As the appointment progressed his frustration continue to grow and it got to a point where I had to stop the entire appointment and let him know that his behavior, comments, and unprofessionalism was unacceptable and I would be taking my business elsewhere. Having a language barrier does not suit for the type of treatment we experienced today and will no longer be going there. Working in a profession that requires interactions with people, should not constitute for any changes in treatment for those who have a language barrier and have a person with them to translate. Visionworks needs to do better.
