Optometry

Optometry relates to eye and vision defects. You should receive regular eye exams from a licensed eye doctor so he or she can treat problems quickly.

Optometrist vs. ophthalmologist? Know the difference between these two medical professionals and choose the best professional when it comes to eye care.

cost of eye exam
Eye Care - Optometry

Numerous factors affect the cost of an eye exam, from your choice of optometrist or ophthalmologist, to location, such as at a retail store or doctor’s office.

Eye Care - Optometry

Up until recently, optometrists didn’t think a child’s nearsightedness was something that could be changed, but new research has developed methods to stop it.

Presbyopia is a condition of the eyes where small, internal muscles weaken over time, slowing down our ability to focus on things that are close up, says Coleman. (Photo by Brandon Smith)

Struggling to read with aging eyes is normal and is a condition known as presbyopia. Talk with your optometrist about these options to make reading easier.

He's thorough and a good doctor. Scheduling is best done two weeks to a month out. The staff is pleasant and knowledgeable.

The patient care was excellent and the optometrist provided a very though exam and a lot of education during the visit. They went above and beyond on the appointment and with following up on a billing issue. For me, scheduling was fairly easy. They offer Saturday appointments.

The day my husband had an appointment, Dr.

's office was very crowded and my husband was waiting a long time. When he finally saw the doctor, the doctor listened to my husband for approximately 30 seconds and told him to move to a different room with no explanation at first. Later the doctor came and saw him again for a brief time and seemed too busy to explain the tests that were being performed. He recommended a pair of $600 glasses.

The staff provided me with multiple options across a wide range of prices and recommended a set of frames that met my needs perfectly.

I needed to leave for Virginia in a few days, so they offered to mail the glasses to my Virginia address. I received the completed glasses in about a week and they perfect.

I’ve been using them for 20 years. They are convenient and you can get an appointment fast or even walk in. They get me what I need relatively quickly. In 20 years I’ve lost a lens twice and they were able to special order it. The staff is friendly. I’ve been pleased with what I’ve gotten.
