My family and I have been patients with Dr. Bigham since he was at his old location. We love Dr. Bigham but recently something has happened to the staff. Crystal is not friendly in person and doesn't need to be answering the phones (needs customer service skills). Our appointments keep getting messed up. My family came in on 3/1 for appointments but my oldest couldn't make it so I called and told them to reschedule hers for a different week and to give me her spot on 3/1 because I didn't have an appointment. (won't go into detail why I didn't have one scheduled this year that's another issue with staff I had over a year ago). When arrived found out that the lady who changed my daughters appointment never put me in my daughters 3/1 spot. The new lady who did the pre stuff on my eyes said, it must be nice to just walk in and say I need a appointment today. Had some more issues with not scheduling appointments right or not taking the old appointment off when we did rescheduled.

The staff at the Evansville Indiana location was absolutely wonderful today. I was looking for a pair of glasses for my 12 year old daughter and the staff did everything in power to help us find a pair that she liked and that our insurance would pay for. I called the store two times before I went there and both times they answered my questions and did it in a polite manner. When we arrived the staff was knowledgably and very friendly. They took the time to assure that my daughter got the pair of glasses that not only that she liked but also a pair that would fit her face correctly. They even went through drawers to find the perfect pair. The wait for the lenses to be fitted into the frames was very quick. They explained my insurance policies and their polices about the glasses in detail. I am a very satisfied customer and would recommend them to others!

Dr. Kim Haywood is my eye Dr. and has been for several years. She has always been very thorough and is always in a good mood. Also Dr. King is my Fiance's Dr. and he is excellent as well!

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.
