FOR DR. CYNHIA HARDY:Dr. Hardy,If you are the one reading this I will like you to know that I am very disappointed with your staff due to an appointment that I had scheduled over the phone for 10:30AM on 4/14. I am a very busy executive that requires planning my time in advance and as such I had my calendar shifted around to accommodate this as they said this is the only time they have available for over a week. So much to my surprise when I woke up the morning of the appointment to find a text message reminding for a 10AM appointment, as opposed to the 10:30AM appointment which was booked. I called and spoke with someone in your office and explained to them that I cannot make the 10 as I already have planned for the 10:30A. That individual said no worries that I may come in at 10:30. Shortly after (about 15 min before appt) a lady called saying that they cannot honor my appointment because you need to go to lunch at 12 exactly….Really????So I shift around my calendar to include a very important meeting to accommodate your schedule, however now since someone made a mistake I am being told that’s my problem? Not good. Please understand that I have sent a few clients to your office as I have always been pleased with your service, but this really ticked me off as there is no regard for my time or my needs although I am paying customer. This is unacceptable and I will be sharing this with my colleagues and I would suggest you speak with your staff regarding this mistake as it may have just cost you a few clients; if that matters to you.

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.
