I called day before my visit to assure that someone would be in for actually making the eyeglasses and was told there would be. My appointment was for 5:45 and I arrived 30 minutes early, and could see that there was someone in the lab, so I asked again and was told she would be leaving at six, that she was taking off early. when I expressed my displeasure, I was told someone fills in the evening hours, After my sons exam, which was the only bright spot in this fiasco, I then endured a baffling "Salesman" which could not operate the system. Lack of customer focus, and very untrained staff. Would advise to try somewhere else first.

Hemler Family Eye Care
I am impressed with the friendly and professional service I received during my initial visit at Hemler Family Eyecare. Dr. Hemler took the time to explain what he found to be my vision issues and his recommendation. The ladies in the front were very helpful in getting me the frames that look the best on me as well as understanding my insurance and what is covered.

Have always used this location specifically because of their wide selection and great staff. The optometrist is a little strange, and I've had lens defects before (but the lenses were replaced for free, so can't complain there). I drive from Maryland just to get the selection and service of the Hanover Visionworks location.
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.
