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.

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 have been buying glasses at Walmart for over 20 years. Every pair I’ve bought has been from Paulette no matter which store. I have followed her from store to store because she is the most knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. I can’t imagine what I will do when she leaves.

The best attribute about this Visionworks location is Emma. People make the difference, and Emma is the reason I will keep returning to this Visionworks to meet my family's eyeglass needs. Emma provides the best customer service, will help you find the best pair or pairs of glasses to meet your needs and will work with your insurance company and you budget to find the most optimal cost for your glasses. Emma is kind, helpful and will also help you find that best pair of glasses to fit your face. You know finding and picking a pair of glasses can be overwhelming and difficult, especially with the large selection at Visionworks available. However, Emma will take the time to give you her opinion to make sure you make a good decision. It is important that you love your glasses. They are one of the first things people will see and notice about your appearance. This is why it is so important to have someone you can trust. Thank you again Emma. I appreciate how much you helped my family.

Natalie was very knowledgeable, kind, and helpful during my visit to LensCrafters at Macy’s. She took the time to give me advice about which frames suited my face and apologized for the rude behavior I experienced from the other location nearby. She definitely deserves a raise. 10/10 recommend this Macy’s location. Mrs. Elisa is awesome as well!

I have just moved into the Clear Lake area and needed new glasses. I’ve have used Visionworks in the past. So I felt comfortable getting my glasses from this location. I was more than pleased. Emma helped me on my first visit and I got two pair of glasses via there promotion at the time. I was very pleased with the fit of one of my new pair of glasses. After two return trips to see if it was possible to make the other pair work it was apparent to me they never would. Cheryl helped me get another pair under there satisfaction guarantee policy. She was extremely courteous and told me to find a new frame and they worked beautifully. Very pleased with this experience. Highly recommend.

I hate shopping; especially, anything that involves mirrors, so needing to replace glasses that broke years ago is normally a traumatic experience. Okay, it still was; however, this time it was made easier with the help of a pink-haired heroine whose name escapes me. Despite getting ready to depart, she helped me find some crazy colors that I thought I wanted before looking in the mirror. I quickly went back to Oakley glasses where, not finding my normal rimless, I chose the first pair I tried on before grabbing a backup & taking them to the front. The pink-haired person passed me off to really sweet younger person who finished up my purchases. So, yeah. If I need new glasses & am forced to go somewhere, this is the only place I'd go. They might be a little on the expensive side, but they carry quality frames, have really kind people, & are located conveniently right inside the entrance between Macy's & Talbot's, I think. Oh! And if you need an exceptional eye doctor but are like me & feel like the exams are pass/fail plus cause for panic attacks, the attached Eye "Something" of Baybrook Mall has a very patient & truly interested in providing you the best experience optometrist.
