I was able to get in to see Dr. Putney within the week that I called. His staff were friendly and professional, as was he. I felt that each of them treated me with courtesy and respect, which should be the minimum, but that is not always the case. Dr. Putney's charges were at the lower end of the offices I researched. His exam was thorough, and he explained each step of the exam and gave feedback after each step was complete. I would be happy to recommend him to friends and family.

Just went to see Dr. Johnson this morning and everyone was so nice and helpful. When I saw her I told her what I wanted, she told me what she recommended and I love the outcome. Best eye visit I ever had. Thank you Dr. Johnson and your staff.

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.
