Got referred here ...once I went to appointment to see a specialist I needed to make another appointment for a second specialist. Didn't like this idea they should of known from the beginning what I was going for. Plus they even did an eye exam and tried giving me a prescription when I'm not there for that. So 2 wks later I went the second time...2hr wait time!!! And another eye exam!! Wth!! Didn't like the process at all!! Gave it a 2 instead of 1 star because I did end up seeing the knowledge the second specialist had.

I recently had an appointment with Dr. Ratty. Although I waited for along time in reception because she was very unprofessional and rude. She stay on the phone for a long time enjoying a ppc (personal phone call) without even greeting me although she was aware that I was there. Then she was rude due to the fact that I was there interrupting her. The Doctor and the rest of the staff was fantastic prompt and caring. I did have to request my eye exam numbers though.

I only had 2 choices with my medical insurance's optical benefit. The office is unnecessarily opulant, too many comely young women. All I wanted was some glasses. The Od that did my exam used some kind of laser or similar device and got the diagnosis instantly but still tried to make it seem like he had to actually focus on me.Worked out fine though.

The wait wasn't too bad. Service was great! I'm a little picky so I took (without exaggerating) about an hour to pick my glasses, the person assisting me was awesome! The Optometrist in general is great! Both with Spanish speakers and with kids! + they have a great variety of glasses.

All the staff is very professional. Dr. Suter is excellent with special needs children. Vision Therapy is fantastic and has improved my child's reading to the point she no longer needs glasses. It's worth it!

Tips & Advices
To find a professional that fits your needs and wants, look for an optometrist with the proper licensing and compliance with state-specific legalities as well as these qualities: attentiveness, ability to listen, ethics, compassion, ability to communicate effectively and willingness to spend time with patients.
Vision, like dental, is often an additional voluntary cost for employers who provide health care coverage. As a result, it may not be included in basic company-sponsored insurance. Those who do have access to this type of coverage - or Medicare - often only pay for a portion of their eye exam services.
The cost of an appointment with an optometrist varies based on the services required. While a typical eye exam can range from $50 to $250, depending on location. If if glasses or contact lenses are prescribed, or tests are needed, the overall expense of an optometrist visit can increase.
The American Optometric Association recommended that patients have their first eye exam at six months of age, followed by another at 3 years old, and again at school age. At that point, Regular annual exams are recommended.
Ophthalmologists are eye doctors that have received higher levels of training than both opticians and optometrists, and can also perform eye surgery when necessary. Opticians design and fit eyeglasses, frames, and lenses that are prescribed by optometrists and ophthalmologists. They do not perform vision tests or write prescriptions for visual aids. Optometrists fall between ophthalmologists and opticians. Optometrists can detect and treat eye abnormalities, prescribe lenses, and complete eye exams, but cannot perform eye surgery.
