I traveled from Plano to see Dr. Martinez. I am so glad I made the trek despite the distance.Dr. Martinez was patient with both me and my teen daughter.She took time in making sure she asked about our past eye exams and ensure we were seeing properly with the sample contact lenses she provided even after we left the office.Her optician, Manuel, spent over 3 hours with my daughter in finding the right frames to fit not only her face but her PERSONALITY! We purchased two different sets of eyeglasses to give her options throughout the week. In all the years I have had to purchase glasses for my daughter, she has never received the amount of attention that Manuel provided for my daughter during her frame selection.As for me, Manuel suggested a frame for my face - VERSACE - which looked WONDERFUL. I couldn't be happier. He was just as patient and helpful with me, calling when our orders were ready and giving us 5 STAR SERVICE.I plan on making the trip every year.

Dr. Martinez was very professional and spent time explaining everything I wanted to know and more. All the staff were professional and courteous. They were also very prompt. Thank you for the excellent service!
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.
