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 moved to Canyon recently from Amarillo and wanted an eye doctor that wouldn't require me driving back. I had heard good things about Advanced Eye Care, so I gave them a shot in Q1 2018. First visit was okay, longer wait than I expected, but that's not a big deal when it comes to medical services. Dr. Salazar did a good job with the eye exam, and I left contented about the experience. Fast forward one year plus a few months, I realize I haven't received a notice/reminder/anything regarding the next check-up when I received a notice from my previous eye doctor (whom I hadn't seen in two years at this point). I got on the Advanced Eye Care Canyon website and accidentally select a Saturday for my requested date. I receive a one-sentence email response with no indicator of who wrote it saying "Our office is not open on Saturdays sorry". So, I respond and say "I apologize, I meant to select Friday the 5th [of July]. Are there any available slots that day?" The received response simply stated (again, with no indication of who wrote the letter, a common courtesy in email exchanges) "no we are going to be closed that day for the 4th holiday so sorry." For a business that relies on appointments from customers, the degree of customer support offered is abysmal. There was the absolute minimum degree of effort shown to try to assist me with finding a time that worked for all parties, and the lack of professionalism in sending out courtesy reminders and basic communication was jarring. To the Dr. Salazar and your fellow opticians, please consider either extensive customer service retraining, more stringent performance reviews of front office staff, or supplementing your workforce with people who are actually engaged in trying to promote your business and assist your clientele.

Avoid, avoid, avoid....! If I could give zero or negative stars I would. This office is horrible, I used to think that all eye doctors were mediocre, but this one proved me wrong. They are absolutely horrible, and prey on students at the local college. My daughter went there for a routine exam, and provided them with what she believed was her vision insurance information. They performed the exam and charged her well over $100 as the "copay", when my daughter text'd me about it I said we have a different insurance for vision and she should have only paid $60 for the copay. I contacted the office the very next morning to provide them with the correct insurance information, the office manager "ruth" said they had already sent the claim off, and wasn't sure they could cancel it. I told her they could file an amended claim or corrected claim to zero out, and resubmit under to the correct insurance company. She said she would check on it, later that afternoon she called and left a message, I called them back and talked to "ruth" and she said they would not resubmit the claim. I was appalled and stated "so let me get this straight I called and provided you the correct information and you are refusing to cancel the original claim and file a new claim with the correct insurance provider". Ruth's response was "we filed the claim with the information that was provided at the time service was rendered", I reiterated that my daughters copay should have been $60 and not the $100+++ dollars they charged and now they are refusing to make the situation right. Read the other reviews on this company and their multiple locations it will be obvious that they have no regard for what's right and merely want to "prey" on any poor customers that walk thru the door. I bet their "repeat" customer numbers are almost non-existent. To sum this story up for you, avoid, avoid, avoid....

The doctors are very knowledgeable, and Dr. Salazar ensured I was satisfied with my contact lens care to the point of saying that she doesn't care so much about brands as long as the product works. As for the staff, they have been and continue to be helpful and friendly.

Y'll can disregard all the old reviews of this place. I had a visit 2 months ago and came back recently for glasses adjustments. Leaving with high satisfaction both times. Very nice people. Christine is awesome

Ignore old reviews. The staff was very professional and friendly. The eyeglass ladies were a hoot. My first visit with Dr. Salazar was absolutely amazing. She didn't do any extra steps that weren't needed and I appreciated her professional judgement. She didn't dilate b/c my eyes looked healthy and that was the right answer. She even stayed late to see my daughter as a first-time patient later that day. Why was that such a BIG deal? Because she was due to deliver her baby the next day! Nothing but good things to say. A staff and doctor who all care.
