Advanced Eyecare Associates
I had a great visit at Advanced Eycare Associates. I saw Dr. Dinovo as well as my 2 kids did. The office staff is great and very helpful with the selection of the right glasses and contacts. The office has been recently redecorated and looks fantastic. We didn't have a long wait time in the reception area and we also did not have to wait long on our glasses and contacts. I also did some price checking around and I can honestly say that for the quality of the product we recieved and the warranties on the glasses and even the contacts it is well worth it. For contacts I believe the office was actually the same price as the discount places you can order your contact lenses. For the quality of the exam and the health of our eyes and the products we got, I am very happy. We will definitely return!
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.
