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.

Went in today afternoon to get my eyeglasses fixed. The glasses were repaired fast in about 15 minutes by Ms. Sheila. She was so kind and went out of her way to make sure they fit perfectly. Their rates were so affordable that I am super happy that I came here. Thank you so much Ms. Sheila, you were A+++ in kindness & customer service. God Bless.

I've been using Dr Ryan and associates for over 15 years and have always been very satisfied with their services. My one suggestion, however, would be to put up a shade or tint the front window. When you have an early morning appointment that sun is blinding!

It was my first time visiting and receiving treatment at this office. Previously, I had the same Optometrist for 20 years, so I was hoping for the best. They truly delivered. Friendly staff great doctor.

I have been coming to Shiela for my Eyewear needs for decades. The service is impeccable. The eyeglass choices are extraordinary. You might pay less by going to a chain store but time and experience you lose by choosing a faceless option is not worth the price. I'm so lucky that they are in my neighborhood.

When I arrived, the store was pretty busy. Nadine helped me to select the perfect frames, thoroughly explained all my lens options, and explained the benefits of my insurance plan. I couldn’t be happier with my experience! Thank you, Nadine!
