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.

Went to get prescription put in my old frames...I furnished the frames, still 300.00!. When I picked them up, girl said can you see? Good have a nice day. The nose guards were old, never replaced. Lenses smudged with a chip out of top. No case offered. Prices up, but service is gone!

On vacation last May, suddenly my eyes became infected (too much air conditioning!). Dr. Gatten took me in right away, no waiting, and prescribed the necessary medicine. All was well in a few days. Very good. Thank you, Dr. Gatten and your kind staff! Back home in France, our medical insurance does not recognize his speciality, Optometry, still non-existant here. However, they are "thinking about it"... It would certainly take much of the strain off the opthalmologists, and off patients who usually have to wait weeks even months for an appointment. Patience! Best wishes, Olivia
