Was the worst and most embarrassing moment ever! I was judged and treated very bad in front of my son about why I couldn't afford glasses for my son by Dr Hagier an older white Doctor. The assistant was in the room and she said nothing as he asked me personal questions about my finically situation. I have never I repeat never been so humiliated in my life! I have pulled my kids from the judge mental so call place of business The ratings are all 0!!!!!

I have gone to Institute For Total Eye Care for over five years, and my wife for over ten years. The staff are all very friendly.

Everyone was friendly; I'll say that much. But -- having just returned from an appointment -- I am extraordinarily frustrated. First, although I arrived at 7:45 for a plain old eye exam, I did not get out of there until 9:45... and that was only because I turned down the contact lens fitting upon learning that my insurance wouldn't cover it along with glasses (not Itec's fault, of course); had I done all I'd planned to do, I would have been there even longer. I think that this was because Itec appeared to schedule three patients for my doctor at exactly 8:00. It's unclear to me how they thought he was going to see all of us at once. Second--speaking of unclarity--no one mentioned that my vision might be blurred for a few hours. My job involves a lot of reading, and I can't do that right now. Had I known, I would have scheduled an appointment for later in the day. The upshot is that it took two hours (!) for me to obtain a prescription, and it might as well have been three or more since the pupil dilation rendered me unable to work this morning. (To be clear, I'm not complaining that they dilated my pupils; I'm frustrated that no one said anything like, "please be advised that you may not be able to see clearly for some time after the exam" when I scheduled my appointment.)I'm giving two stars instead of one because, unlike the only other eye doctor I've visited in Montgomery, at least the fellow I saw this morning didn't seem like a crazy person. And again, the whole staff was very courteous (excepting their failure to apologize for the wait).
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.
