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.

What does an optometrist do?

Functionality: eye examinations, selection of types of vision correction (glasses, lenses), recommendations on eyeglass lens designs and contact lens materials, and advanced medical services.

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 love this place because not only is it clean, the atmosphere and professionalism is so warm and inviting. Dr. Peter Nardone is so thorough because he was the only optometrist to get my eyes diagnosed correctly.

The administrative team was incredibly helpful and was able to fit me in for an appointment same day. Dr. Azocar was kind and professional and was able to diagnose my eye issue and provide a range of treatment options I could take based on what felt most comfortable. He took the time to answer all my questions. I always get nervous about eye issues, but Dr. Azocar put me at ease and on the road to recovery!

So there is no way to just pick up glasses you have to wait for everyone to decided what pair they want and blah blah blah so a two second hand off for a pair of glasses that are already paid for turns into a whole ordeal.

Dr. Gates has been my optometrist for the past 4+ years, and I still go to him for eye exams even though I have moved out of Richmond. He is professional, friendly, and skilled at what he does. He seems to truly care about his patients and genuinely listens to their concerns. Carytown Optometry is linked with Carytown Optical, and I always order my contact lenses here. They have a wide selection of glasses, and my current prescription glasses are from here as well. The staff including Beth and Cynthia are nothing but helpful, and their customer service goes above and beyond. I have referred two of my friends to Dr. Gates so far and will continue to do so. Highly recommend!

Outstanding service from the front door throughout the eye exam process to check out. The reception team was polite welcoming and efficient. The COVID-19 mitigation processes are logical and easy to comply with. This was my first in person visit since 2019 and I will be back.
