I went to Erie Optical for the first time last week after going to the mall for my glasses for years. I was explained all the benefits to all the lenses and not just "sold" something. I also received a great frame at a better price than I have ever paid before! The Doctor spent a lot of time with me and so did the girl who helped me pick out my glasses. And when I just went to pick them up today again everyone there was so friendly! I would recommend them to anyone! I think I am sold for life on Erie Optical they were just that nice!

Dr. Waldman has provided exceptional eye care for me for 40 years, and continues to do so for my children as well. He is very thorough and uses modern high tech equipment to get a complete 3 dimensional look at the eye where others are not able to view. I know I am in good hands, as he has consistently proven to be a true professional. He is never hurried. I highly recommend Dr. Waldman and Erie Optical to all, and am grateful for the many years of care he has provided for me and my family.

Thanks again for another great experience selecting frames! The Erie Optical staff actually makes choosing frames kind of fun! There is a large selection of frames but ifnyou are looking for something special the Opticians are always willing to order a frame that is just right! I can't wait until my new frames arrive!

I have been going to Dr. Waldman for over 15 years and always feel confident after my visits that he has provided a comprehensive exam with equally understandable explanation of his findings. And the staff is always very friendly and helpful long after the visit. Thank you for the great 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.
