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.

Visionworks is the best optical store in the Williamsburg and Newport News area! The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. They offer lots of options based on your needs and price point. They are also extremely helpful with selecting frames and really care about you having a positive purchase experience!

Do not waste your time. They will cancel your appointment only a few days before the day you are scheduled, after waiting over a month to be seen. This has happened twice already and you u have to wait over a month again to be seen.

I would love to give 5 stars because all of my previous appointments were good but the communication with staff is disappointing and misleading. This is not the first time. All information should be reviewed before a patient shows up for their appointment.

Dr. Barley was very professional and friendly. He took extra time explaining my eyes to me. I’ve never had an eye doctor take the time. His staff is very courteous and office brand new. Highly recommend!

Today was my first appointment, and it WON'T be the last. The entire staff is excellent. I have zero complaints! I've been to several eye doctors in the area, and this office is the best! If you are in search for an eye doctor, make sure you check Eastern Eye Associates out!
