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.

Wonderful office with very caring staff! They helped me in an emergency situation when I was there visiting from out of town. They were super nice and helpful! Would definitely recommend this office!

Only giving them a one because I can't give them a negative! However, glasses are giving my son a headache. I took him to a different eye doctor and they come up with a completely different prescription! (Not far off of what he had, still wears and not giving him headaches. When I went to see what could be done... nothing. Blaming game on the Insurance company. When I ask about the $300 plus we paid out of pocket to the eye care facility - still nothing they can do. I would not recommend them to anyone. The girl at the desk doesn't care - just keeps blaming the Insurance companies policies. Cop Out! If you really cared about customer service you would try to work with us. **** As you can see by their response to my review... Just like I said blaming INSURANCE. I was NEVER told to call my insurance, I was simply given a copy of the "warranty information" by Amy. Her could care less attitude was what made me write the review in the first place. Mind you, I didn't put in the first time that this was the 2nd set of glasses as the first ones were wrong. She had no clue that the type of lens she was putting on my son's glasses would be "so heavy". Of course we had to pay extra to get the lighter ones, which we did. His frames were an 'upgrade" (additional $$) and looked ACTUALLY like his current ones. I had no idea that he wasn't wearing his new ones until just recently during a conversation with my son. Stating the the news ones hurt his eyes so he wore his old ones. This was ALL explain to Amy - who acted like she could care less. If you were so "happy to help solve any issues" she has a weird way of showing it. I asked what Electric City Eye Care" could help us with... thats when Amy kept referring to the insurance and gave me a copy of the warranty. Again NEVER said I should call them to see if they would help. I didn't' pay the Insurance company the $283. dollars. I even suggested giving the glasses back to them, and just refund me what I paid them. They still would have made money off the insurance company... again I was referenced that it was because of the insurance company. Dr. Reed is a great eye doctor. His receptionist/Licensed Optician is the reason I will not return.

My wife and I have been going to Electric City Eye Care for quite some time now and we plan to continue! Dr. Reed is very thorough and explains everything about the exam and his findings. He doesn't mind answering any of your questions and he develops a relationship with you rather than treating like a number. Crystal is very nice and does a really great job of explaining what is covered and not covered by your insurance, plus she is very helpful when it comes time to pick out frames! We highly recommend this establishment as you will not be disappointed!

I have been having Dr Reed do my eye exams for quite some time. He is very thorough and friendly. Crystal, up front, is sooo nice and very helpful. She makes the whole experience smooth. By far the best optometrist office around.
