Eye Works
I have been a customer of Eye Works for several years. Bought glasses there several times and had eye exams. I went today to get an eye exam. Good experience. I went to the eyeglass shop next door. I am ordering a set of goggles online and needed my PD # that they have on file from my previous purchases. Whoever the tall dark headed lady that works there...well she's totally unsettling. She told me it would cost $50 for that information. I explained I'm a regular customer, she said it didn't matter...$50. Her attitude was border line confrontational. She really turned me off on the whole place. I saw the manager outside, who I've bought glasses from. He wanted to try and make it right but honestly, I just didn't want to go back inside and have to look at her miserable looking face. Someone needs to let her know that she really shouldn't be working with the public. Long story short, they lost a ling term customer today.

Dr. Harden is the best eye doctor I have been to in in the 48 years that I have been using corrective lenses. I drive an hour and a half to go to him.
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.
