Traverse Vision
A coworker recommended Traverse Vision to me. I was complaining that it was time for a new eye exam and some new glasses. I have been wearing glasses my whole life and I have to say this place beats them all. The staff is incredibly friendly. The Dr I saw spent time with me, quality time, explaining to me in a very clear way what my persription was and how this new prescription was going to clear my world up. Also he explained to me that the actual health of my eyes. I was shown a photo (which they take every year to compare) of the inside of my eyes. I was shown my blood vessels and my retina. It was so fasinating to me. At Traverse Vision, I know I am in a place that actually cares about me and everyone I worked with spent time answering my question. A part that I actually really appreciated was when I asked a question like "do these frames look good?" I was given an answer. Sometimes it was "no" and some were "yes". They are honest and if the glasses i was asking about didnt look good they made suggestions. I recommended this place to all my friends and family. I'll never go elsewhere. Im a very happy customer!

This place is one of the most fantastic optical stores i have ever been in. As I walked in I saw two long walls full of frames. One mens and one womens. I knew I could find something here to represent my taste in fashion and for fun. The opticians there guided me step by step. The word overwhelm never came to mind while I was engaged in choosing a frame. I can definately tell you that they have the largest selection of quality frames i have ever seen from Gucci to Silhouettes. From Mauji Jim sunglasses to Oakley. I was asked questions based on my lifestyle, what i do for work, and what I want my glasses to say. Getting glasses was a process that I used to put off because I hated my experiences from the past and how hard it was for me to pick out my glasses. At Traverse Vision, the process was fun, and incredibly easy, my time was respected, and EVERYONE loves my new glasses and sunglasses!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

I was nearly out of contact lenses and went in to purchase some more. Turns out that my contact prescription is only valid for one year even though I'm only able to get an eye exam every two years via my insurance. Rather than try to figure out a way to help with my issue (even if it cost me money,) the office staff basically pushed me out the door.I went to another office and they gave me two pairs of trial lenses (for free) to get me by until I could schedule another eye exam. The doctors are good and the office is nice, but I just don't have time for anyone who isn't willing to attempt to offer a solution to a problem. I wasn't looking for a handout, I just wanted help finding a solution.

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.
