Dr. Lamar Zigler is a good doctor and thorough, but, in my opinion, this office is more concerned about making money than in making happy customers who love their eyeware. I was charged for a contact lens exam after I specifically said I did not need one (I only needed glasses). The whole reason I specifically asked to NOT have a contact lens appointment was because I was so shocked at the cost of one at my last appointment. I was staying in the same lenses and just needed a renewed prescription, but for some reason I had to be "fitted" for the lenses that I had worn for years. The prices that they charge seem to be VERY inflated as well (much more than what my insurance company will cover, and also much more than other offices I have now priced out.) The glasses that they made for me were way too big, and I could not see out of them properly (everything looked very tiny, I would get dizzy wearing them, and they fell way down below my nose so I constantly had to adjust them). I spoke with the eyeglass technician and her response was that I should keep them for a while and perhaps my eyes would adjust to them. The glasses were ridiculously expensive because I was talked into buying a designer brand, and after having them for over a year neither my eyes, nor the size of my head head has gotten "used to" these glasses. I have mostly worn contacts this past year, unless in an absolute emergency. I have since moved to a new doctor after going to this practice for a few years. They checked my glasses prescription and said the strength was wrong (much too strong) and that it was very obvious my glasses did not fit, nor could that frame fit my head (it was too wide).

Breslow Eye Care
A very thorough exam for our 11 year old daughter. Dr. Breslow helped her feel very comfortable with the exam and explained things to her. She absolutely LOVES her glasses (her first) and talks about them constantly. Dr. Breslow explained her eye condition and how it might progress as she ages and what we can do to help her vision. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended!

Arena Eye Surgeons
I had the best experience w/this surgeon, and surgery than most of my past surgeries. Dr. Utrata was very professional and knowledgable, and made me feel confident about my surgery. The nurses and other staff were all friendly, and most accommodating. The Arena itself is really nice and well kept. I will be returning to Arena Eye Surgeons and to Dr. Utrata in the future.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lamar Zigler and his staff. I have been going to this doctor for almost 20 years. Dr. Zigler is a great doctor and they have wonderful opticians and contact lens technicians. Not the least expensive place in town but it is worth the cost for the quality of care.
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.
