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.

Sandra Kinley  |  Rating: 3  |  Eye Associates of Columbia at the Village of Sandhills

The booking site says lens crafters, not Eye Associates of Columbia. Upon checking I’m then told about a $39 fee that’s paid to the owner. Lens crafters just sales me my glasses. That should be displayed better online and also communicated before appointments. Let me decide how I want to spend my money.The office was clean, the staff was nice. The doctor was knowledgeable. I just don’t feel it’s worth paying an extra $39 every visit.when my visit should only be $10.

The staff was very nice. They are very knowledgeable of all store products and procedures. I would recommend Eye mart Express to anyone who wants to get quality glasses at prices that you can afford. I was at the Harrison Boulevard store in Columbia. Thank you Eye Mart Express..

I really enjoyed my visit to your shop. I felt very welcomed and I was so surprised to have found the prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses so fast. From the minute I walked through the door I knew I was in the right place, and Could tell this is where God wanted me to be. Your shop just has that lite and serine feeling. Everyone was so friendly.

Dr. Dorothy is super. My previous eye doctor said women my age had difficulty wearing contacts. I had wore them previously for many years. Dr. Dorothy fitted and they are great. Highly recommend her.

Everyone in the office is super friendly. I was able to book my appointment online which was very easy and convenient. I love that it’s a smaller office, it’s more laid back and has a more family friendly feeling when you visit. Dr. Zuba was very knowledgeable and just so easy to talk to.
