Finkelstein Eye Associates
I had a terrible experience in the Finkelstein Eye Associates. We think our 2.5-year old son might have cross eyes. His pediatrician referred him to the Finkelstein Eye Associates. I called them to make an appointment and confirmed with them especially if they could do the physical exam, i.e. dilation. They told me yes since they even do this to newborns. They had a super busy schedule, and we waited more than a month before our appointment. We waited about half hour before we saw the doctor, a middle age guy probably called Fokes. He checked my son's eyes simply and then decided to do dilation. Then we waited more than 30 minutes after they gave my son eye drops. The nurses took my son to an equipment and asked him to put his chin on the platform. My son obviously does not know how. They nurses gave up after 1 minute. Then they asked us to wait for 10 minutes before the doctor could come. But we actually wait about 40 minutes. The doctor looked very tired when he showed up. He tried to let my son look at some light through a glass. My son is not used to looking this way. The doctor casually tried 4 times, and then I told he could not do this tests for my son. He said he would refer me to another pediatrician who is also an eye specialist. I asked him if he is sure my son can have the test well there. He said no, but it has a better chance. I tried to ask the doctor's name, but they said the doctor would call me for an appointment. I drove 1 hour back and forth and stayed there for 2.5 hours, but ended with nothing. My son did not cry. But they just did not have a good way to let my son corporate. I felt really disappointing with my experience in this office, and I will not recommend this doctor to anybody who is 2-3 years old.

I purchased two pairs of glasses recently and was greeted by a very nice woman who assisted me in right away in picking out some frames and making sure that they were the correct ones for my face. Price was great and I would recommend this place for getting glasses.

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.
