Tharp Family Eye Care
I visited this doctor for the first time today because they had a last minute appointment available. I have never been made to feel any more welcome than I was here. I work in healthcare and this staff truely impressed me. My eye exam was more thorough than any other I have had, and Dr Tharp was in no hurry and explained and discussed everything in detail. I am so glad I made this appointment! Well worth the hour drive!!

The doctors in this office are great but when I ordered my glasses with them it took about 1 month to get them then they were wrong, I had to send them back and I have not got them yet. It's been over 1 month. The office staff keeps giving me the run around about when they are coming in.

Horrible experience with him. The devices used are unsanitary. The chair and equipment looked as if it was dated back in the 50's. Just a nasty, junky place.

Tips & Advices
A regular eye exam focuses on the general health of your eyes, while a contact lens exam is focused specifically on how your eyes react to contact lenses. A contact lens exam tests how well you see while wearing contacts. Your eyes are also evaluated to make sure your tear ducts produce enough tears to allow you to comfortably wear contact lenses.
The cost of contact lenses depends on the type of lens being purchased and the vision problem that is being corrected. For nearsightedness, you'll be able to purchase a box of six lenses for roughly $25. Each lens needs to be replaced after a couple of weeks, which will require you to purchase 10 boxes of lenses each year, for a total of $250 per year. Contact lenses that treat other conditions like astigmatism and presbyopia are more expensive, and can cost $500-$700 a year.
Some people may experience certain side effects when wearing contact lenses. Dry eyes may result, and some people may experience eye or eyelid inflammation. Some contact lens wearers may also develop allergic reactions to the liquid contact lens solution that is used to clean and disinfect the lens.
The cost of an eye exam can range $50-$250 or more. The cost will depend on the tests that are included, and whether the exam involves a contact lens fitting. The cost of the test will also hinge on whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
An eye exam typically takes 20-30 minutes. If additional tests are required, the process could take longer. Eye exams test your sight, but they are also used to make sure your eyes are in good health. During the test, your eye care professional will ask if you've been experiencing any problems with your vision. Your eyes will be examined using a device known as an ophthalmoscope, and the movement of coordination of your eyes will be checked.
