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.

What is the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?

What is the difference between the profession of an optometrist and an ophthalmologist? An optometrist only provides initial diagnosis and can only treat refractive errors with conservative methods.

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.

Awesome experience going to this optometrist. The eye exam went very smoothly and the Acuvue Oasys contacts get recommended me are the best contacts I’ve worn so far. Dr. Larrabee is great and I will be going there from now on.

I love Dr. Shen! My entire family receives care from her. She is very compassionate and believes in making a difference in the lives of her patients not making a buck like the big box eye places. She told me things she could not have known, for example she said do you know you have Iron deficiency, which I knew because I had just seen my PCP who told me I was anemic. It was truly amazing what she told me vs. other eye care professionals I had seen in the past. I love that her first line of treatment is not an expensive prescription or new glasses right away but simple things like wash your eyes and use a warm compress. I was so impressed with the care my family of 9 received that I referred my mother and father. My mother had received Lasik from VA Eye Institute and was already having problems and back in glasses. After Dr. Shen's warm compresses and B vitamin recommendation's she is now back to 20/20 vision with no corrections, she has also cured her chronic dry eye which she has suffered with for YEARS and other doctors just gave her rewetting drops which did not solve the problem of why her eyes do not make tears. My dad had severe diabetes, after his eye exam and utilizing the B vitamins he has had the best blood sugar readings he has ever had and is back to 20/20 vision. He had also made lots of diet changes which also impacted this but he was on the precipice of needing insulin and now he is controlling his diabetes with diet, exercise and B vitamins. His endocrinologist was very impressed.

Had a great experience at The Eye Place. They continue to build a great practice with fantastic staff. I want to give special mention to Brianna. She was very helpful, knowledgeable, and patient. She did a great job of explaining the various tests and her positive attitude helped put me at ease. Dr. Norma was very patient, thorough, and personable, as always. I very much appreciated the positive interactions! Thank you.

New to the area and haven't had glasses in 7+ years, went in for an eye exam, process before the exam (paperwork) was smooth, smooth until I went to do the eye exam, started out good until he started seeming impatient with how long I took to respond to which lens was better or that I could barely see the tiny letters on the mirror, I also "picked all the wrong ones" and we did a re-do, that one came out better, but not by much. By the end of the exam I was just ready to get out of there, if I could give 0, I would and I would never recommend anyone to go here. Unprofessional and rude.

Lisa was so amazing and helpful she made my whole process so easy and to be honest fun. She helped find the correct frames for me. I have told all my friends and family that they need to see Lissa. If I could give more stars
