Visionworks Doctors Of Optometry
Understaffed. There was only one doctor doing eye exams while they're doing their dollar exam deal. The wait time was 3 hours both times I was there. When I finally got in to see the doctor, he was very rude. He made me feel stupid, chewed gum, played music, and burped very close to my face. He was extremely unprofessional. I also saw one of the workers being snarky to a very polite man who didn't speak English well. Overall, this was a terrible experience and I don't plan to go back.

Dr. Keplinger took over when my previous eye doctor stopped practicing.. I was somewhat skeptical of the change, but Dr. Keplinger and his staff were great. Friendly staff and a thorough exam. Both me and my family will be staying with Dr. Keplinger.
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.
