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 had an eye appointment for myself and two children at the same time. They rotated through us very efficiently with little wait time between all of us. The office staff was fantastic as usual. This was our first time seeing Dr C. She was great. The kids were a little nervous, but she was very kind and gentle with them, and put them totally at ease. No tear this appointment! Will definitely continue at this practice. Very convenient location from anywhere on JZI.

Every employee here was fantastic! I was in and out exactly on time. More importantly, they all took the time to ensure both my exam and frames selection were thorough and NOT rushed. I have been to so many eye doctors and big box stores - I always feel rushed and not given much advice from the staff. Angel Oak was fantastic!

I usually dread eye appointments but I was pleasantly surprised! From the moment I walked through the doors, it was a great experience! Everyone was so nice and welcoming. It put me at ease.

The front office staff has been very friendly and has kept me well informed about follow up appointments. During my last appointment, I felt the optometrist was in a hurry to end the visit quickly even though I had questions regarding my prescription and issues with contacts fitting. She appeared to be dismissive of my concerns. As a health care professional myself, I would not treat my patients in this manner. I will definitely be looking for another provider.

I recently saw this office for a routine eye exam and contact lens fitting. The doctor clearly didn’t know what they were doing. The prescription seemed wrong immediately, and the office really pushed a specific brand of contact although I was happy with what I had. I ended up seeing a different optometrist afterward who confirmed that the prescription was off by a full diopter(!) in one eye. When I raised my issues with the office, they could not have been more rude. I highly recommend going somewhere else if you value your health and your time.
