Cohen's Fashion Optical
I’ve been to several optical stores for years now but my best all-around experience is at Cohen’s Journal Square. The staff is friendly, attentive and informative; they make you feel comfortable and at ease. Erika went out of her way to help me, she was patient and accommodating. She even stepped out under the sun to effect the lens transitioning. When I was “confused” about choosing frames due to the tempting selections, she asked the rest of the staff (including the manager), to vote for their pick. It was fun, considering I just met them. Erika always has a welcoming smile for everyone who comes in. On my follow-up visits, she continued to treat me like I was special. Dr Solis is a very knowledgeable and caring professional; down-to-earth and approachable. I got an excellent deal/service that for the first time, I was inspired to write my appreciation online. A big THANK YOU to Erika, Dr Solis and the caring staff of Cohen’s JSQ. You’re all awesome! Count me as one of your loyalists!
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.
