Gussenhoven Julie OD
I have been going to see Dr. Julie Gussenhoven, OD, for 14 years now. It is always a pleasure. From the moment I am greeted by the reception staff, when I walk into the office, until my appointment is finished and I walk out the door, it is a pleasant experience. Dr. Gussenhoven makes your time there especially enjoyable because she shows that she cares about the health of your eyes by the excellent care and concern she demonstrates while she examines you.Six years ago I had to move to Susanville, 112 miles away, but because I am so impressed with Dr. Gussenhoven’s care I continue to drive that distance for my yearly exams. I know I will continue to make that trip for a long time to come. Thank you Dr. Gussenhoven and staff for the service you give to me and, I am sure, to so many others.

I was recommended to Dr.Young by another Optical place were my friend worked. My son was having visual problems, So asked her honestly who was the best Optometrist she knew of for children? She said rumor had it,that it was Dr. Young. So I made an appointment for him. As a scared Mom, I was pleasantly surprised how caring they were from the first call, all the way through to picking up glasses. Yes! He needed glasses! He Loves them! I will never go anywhere els.If you or a family member needs anything for your eyes, go talk to Dr.Young and his Staff first! They will help you!

Great service and got a great eye exam. I see better than ever with my new glasses and contact lenses. I got the iZon lenses and they are great! The doctor was very professional and gave me a really good exam. Best eye exam ever. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Also, they ran right on time. No waiting for 30 minutes for my appointment like at the big eye clinic in town. I would highly recommend them.

I have been seeing Dr. Gussenhoven for several years for my eye care. It is always a good experience she is very thorough and she makes it relaxing and upbeat. She spends time explaining your eye health as well as discussing your overall health care and how they are linked. Her staff is very friendly and helpful as well.

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.
