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 don't have insurance, so I decided to visit here to save a few dollars. The price is good and as a walk-in I was seen fairly quickly. The only bad thing I can say is that I was not told that I have astigmatism. I had to find out when I got my contacts. I really wish this could have been explained a little more. I really hope the doctor did not assume that I knew. I didn't. If I can't go to an eye doctor and be told things that affect my vision and have some basic information shared with me, then I won't be back to this place. I appreciate the price, but it would have only taken a few minutes to let me know.

On my experience buying the expensive brand glasses frames from walmart vision center their warranty it is only for 1 time replacement, not like the cheaper brand glasses that can be replaced the times you need within your warranty period, I switched to Target vision center and no matter what brand you get they offer unlimited replacements on all your warranty period (they charge an small fee each time but is better than run out of warranty if you break them and pay the whole price)

So this morning my last pair of contacts ripped (AND a holiday weekend)..I called and went to maybe 10 places, including the Wal-Mart off 80; who were no help nor cared to help, i went to the Lake June one and Omg they just saved my life!

The Walmart associates lost my lense order, went for an adjustment and the associate melted the coating on the lense by using heat, they did not want to replace my lenses, but finally agreed. Then those lenses came in and the Manager shaved one lense too much and had to reorder the lense, AGAIN. And, lastly, my prescription changed, ordered second to the best lense (scratch resistant), now my lenses are full of scratches, and the manager said they're scratch resistant not scratch proof. I have been cleaning my classes the way I always have but it's me that scratched them up. Ugh! I will not be doing business with Walmart Vision Center, again. Terrible service.
