Vision 4 Less
I'm self-employed - have to watch every penny.I look for good places to spend my money.Bonus is when I find real, honest, hard working people.Around June 15th 2017 I stopped in to get my glasses tweaked.One of the two pairs I purchased in 2008 was not holding the lens well and a screw always worked loose.David spent some time and was able to get them going though we both acknowledged it may be time to get some new ones.David was also running the desk it seemed so he very professionally kept his cool while helping all who walked in and still repairing my old broke down glasses.July 17th 2017 I went back as I had finally saved up enough for new glasses.David and I sat down and soon I was anxiously awaiting my single vision snazzy new sun-glasses and a no-line bi-focal pair as well.When I picked them up I was very happy with the clarity.However, with the bi-focal I had only distance views to test - nothing up close.Upon returning home and working on the computer etc, I realized they were single vision - not bi-focal as I had wanted (one pair no-line bi-focal, the other single vision sunglasses)'So I called and talked to Sam.Sam was very polite and understanding.Sam spoke to her manager and I was told to come back in the morning so they could make things right.So I returned the next day. Talked with Brittany.She was very courteous and worked to get my order straightened out. I turned in the incorrect glasses and returned a bit later to pick up my corrected glasses.I really like them!So, a little bit of mistake but maybe a complicated/confusing order mixed up at first but made right in a friendly professional manner.I would recommend this store with this quality staff.Thank you!!

Fetters Family Eye Care
Dr. Sheila Fetters is VERY thorough and professional. She knows all about eyes and diseases of the eye and seems to be quite concerned about you as a patient. She takes the time to listen and do a thorough examination. I would go to her everytime. Last time I went I paid cash for the exam because I only have one good eye and I know she's one of the very best in our area.
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.
