I stopped going there years ago because of rude employees at the desk. I sent my sons there in January, 2015, in a pinch. My sons told me that they are still unfriendly. Today, I called with a question. I felt like I was a bother and that they didn't have time for my simple question! I WILL never go there again!

Never again. I went here to obtain new lenses for my glasses. I paid $400 for progressive lenses for my aviators and waited a week for them to arrive. The first optometrist gave to me and they worked fine for distance. I didn't try them for reading at that time. I took them home and tried them for I took them back the next day. The second optometrist that served me took a look a them and quickly told me that the lens blanks they ordered were too small and said that he'd order the correct lenses. I waited another week. I returned today, after their call with the expectation that all would be kosher and I'd finally have reading glasses. I went to the counter and they fetched the lenses from their storage bin. i gave them my glasses was told to come back in an hour. I came back early and was summoned to the customer service desk with great expectations. Alas, it was not to be. Once again they'd ordered the wrong size lens. I will likely have to wait a third week until the correct lenses arrive. Never again.
Tips & Advices
While the first appointment is the most comprehensive, the majority of appointments with an ophthalmologist begin with a basic eye exam followed by a refraction to test if glasses are needed. Other tests might include an eye muscle coordination exam, a check of pupil response and peripheral vision, slit lamp microscope test to look at the anterior segment of the eye, and an intraocular pressure assessment.
Most eye doctors will charge different amounts for their services, but a basic eye exam with an ophthalmologist can range from $50 to $300. Additional tests and treatment will add to the price.
Ophthalmology subspecialties include strabismus/pediatric ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology, retina/uveitis ophthalmology, cornea/anterior segment ophthalmology, ophthalmic plastic surgery, and reconstruction.
Ophthalmologists can diagnose macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, ocular albinism, vitreous traction, cataracts, astigmatism, myopia, retinoblastoma, and many more.
The most popular ophthalmology procedures are cataract, laser eye treatment, and glaucoma surgeries.
