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.

My mother had a routine visit with Dr. Davis this week. I have to report that the Dr. Davis greeted us with professionalism and outstanding courtesy. Dr. Davis took a huge amount of time explaining every detail of what my mother's diagnosis was and how he could help. We are extremely grateful and would recommend Dr. Davis with no reserve to anyone who can get to his office. Remember my friends ; 'A doctor alive is worth the drive'!

The entire process was the most pleasant experience I’ve ever had! From the initial testing, the doctor herself, and the front office helping us choose frames - everyone was extremely helpful and patient. Everyone was very thorough, efficient, and pleasant.

I couldn’t speak more highly of the doctors here! I’ve never had to wait long to be seen but also always get plenty of time to ask questions. They’re so so kind and definitely the place to go for eye care.

First impressions are everything, correct? I made an appointment after checking if they were in network. Once I arrived they had forms I needed to fill out regarding different eye/contact procedures. I have a friend in Boston who’s an optometrist so I texted pictures of the procedures and he said they were normal but this place was charging double his place. He said to make sure it was in network however. So I called my insurance and they said it wasn’t. The lady at the front told me “they pulled it” so it was covered by my insurance. I called my insurance back and was on hold when another lady at the desk asked if I was ready or needed to reschedule in a terse manner. I let her know I was on the phone with my insurance. She asked again. I said go ahead and cancel it. Two minutes later I confirmed my insurance covered everything. However why would I let my insurance pay double for exams when I am treated this way? So I write this to let you know the prices are higher yet the courtesy is lacking. I place an emphasis on customer service so unfortunately they lost my business.

The entire staff was friendly and courteous. The Dr was friendly and knowledgeable. The only thing I have issues with is I was not offered any other solution as far as glasses... I cannot afford bifocals, I don't need them all the time either. Was not aware I could have gotten regular glasses and then readers... Much more economical for me, my mom told me I can do that not the salesman, shame on him
