I feel like I am rushed in and out when I go here. My last appt. I was 10 minutes early-- someone came in way after me and was seen ahead of me (same Dr.).I also said that I do not like Air Optix. What do they put me in? You guessed it- AO.I also do not like the way they forcefully try to get you into their membership. The dude tried to tell me that these contacts are $90 a box and that I can get them cheaper with the membership. I did some research when I got home and found out the going rate is $45-50! Time to find a new eye Doc.

I just got back from Visionworks in Frederick and would like to say this was the BEST eye exam, eye glass fitting and eyeglass selections - eve !!! Nicole greeted me as soon as I walked in, Stacey was just incredible helping me pick the right pair and Dr. Arthur was just exceptional. I cannot say enough good things about this Visionworks!

I saw Dr Smith and she was wonderful. I've never had to wear glasses before and i had lots of questions; she took the time and helped me feel comfortable about the process. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly.
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.
