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.

Tonya was great! She helped me find my frames. She was also super patient. Insurance was taking longer to process and continued to give errors but she made sure everything went through correctly before I left.

This place is awesome! I was able to get a same day appointment which I conveniently booked online. Dr. Meek was super knowledgeable and seemed to genuinely care about my wellness. He provided me with a explanation and solution to an eye issue that I've been having for a long time when other eye doctors offered me nothing. I am so grateful for his help! The two ladies working in the office area were excellent, professional and super sweet. Tonya helped me pick out my glasses, offered honest feedback to help me find the right ones and was very swift, professional, fun and helpful during the check-out process. This place is great and the people working here are wonderful!

I had a great experience at Visionworks, at the West Allis location! Tonya, a lady who helped get our glasses together was phenomenal, friendly and kept us smiling and laughing all the way through our visit. Also, Optometrist Dr. John was great! He provided the best care for my eyes and adjusted my eye prescription for optimal vision.

Knight Vision & Glaucoma has been terrific over the years. The staff is friendly and Dr. Knight is certainly knowledgeable and listens to my questions and concerns. I like the amount of time he spent going over my eye issues and helping me understand what is going on with my eyes. I highly recommend Dr. Knight.
