Me and my family been going to Dr. Hinze for many years with great service but today stopped by to have them repair my glasses (the nose pad broke and I lost it) for some reason the receptionist was fixated on the nose pad that I had lost and would not listen what I had to say. I am not on the eye glass business so I can't understand why she was so fixated on the nose pad. Maybe she has a reason but sure didn't take the time to explain it to me. Same thing happen while back, I lost the pad Jim soldered different one, paid 60 + dollars for a pad and was happy and went on my way. So over a 50 cent pad that I was willing to pay another $60.00 or whatever much they charge, she lost a long time customer because I didn't save the nose pad. Funny Huh! Got to stop loosing these nose pads. It's all my fault....
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.
