As a new patient, I took my 4 year old daughter and made an appointment for myself.Every single person in the building went out of there way to smile and be friendly to a not-so-happy little girl. I was so impressed! My daughter left asking "When can we go back and see all my new friends?"As for my experience, everyone explained things in a very easy to understand manner. They had all the newest computer equipment and the doctor explained everything to me very patiently.Insurance and my copay, I was out in a flash. I am nor sure what the older reviews were referencing, but my experience made me want to write a review. Well Done!

I was very happy with the experience at Forest Park Eye Care. I brought in my prescription for glasses with no idea what kind of frames I wanted. Brenda from the optical staff helped me pick out a very cute black and white pair. She answered all my questions regarding what type of lenses to get. We even exchanged stories about our daughters. It felt more like hanging out with one of my girlfriends than picking out glasses. It was a great experience overall.

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.
