Bayshore Eye Care
I have been going to Bayshore Eye Care for almost twenty years. I am sorry to read these reviews, because I can tell you that it is repeatedly the BEST eye care I have ever had! The service is decent, the staff is knowledgeable, and Dr K Lawson consistently gives me the MOST ACCURATE prescription I've ever had. Even when I've lived 3-4 hours away, this is where I get my eyes checked. Recently, I went to another reputable store and had a good experience, but my glasses just didn't come out right. BEST optical in Florida.

Visionworks
We received a coupon in the mail, so decided to give tem a try. Large selection of frames and very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Picked out frame, upgraded, polycarbonate, lightweight, scratch resistant, anti glare, no-line bifocals with Transitions Signature lenses and the total was under $200. Had a very thorough eye exam for $79. The glasses were ready in three days and with a little adjustment work great. I cannot believe I received such great service and value for money.
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.
