My exam was rushed the optometrist was speaking fast and rushing through my exam, they based my prescription off my old prescription which the whole point is to see if you need a new one, not go off the old prescription. She kept flipping between lenses way too fast I told her if she could slow down she stated “same” is an option if it looks the same.I will save my money and go else where.

After some misunderstanding about the Groupon coverage, the very helpful Ms. Maria Torrez - office manager - investigated the situation more thoroughly, and I was able to get the benefit of Groupon after all. Her calmness helped me keep mine (I traveled to the facility from where I live out in The Woodlands, and felt discouraged and flustered to have come so far), and we ended up also having a really enjoyable time chatting later on. The doctors made me feel like I was in good hands. And the young ladies that helped me with contact fitting and glasses ordering were friendly and accommodating. I'm so glad everything worked out!

Ms.Carla/Karla was very sweet and she allowed me to try on any pair of glasses to see what best fits me. She didn't complain about the time I spent trying to find the right pair for my face and overall she was very very caring and went the extra mile to chose a few that she thought looked great and I ended up choosing a pair she picked! She is great at her job!

My fiancée went in to get exam and I didn’t like I couldn’t even be in the building. But he said the doctor was very informative and thorough checking for everything. To add....The deal with the glasses was a blessing. Thanks for honoring us with good service and a deal.

Nearsightedness and Farsightedness: Squished Spheres

If you spend a lot of time squinting, it’s likely that you have myopia or hyperopia. Read on to see what’s going on inside nearsighted and farsighted eyes.

As light enters a perfectly round eyeball it passes through a lens called the cornea and gets focused on an area in the back of the eye called the retina, much like a movie projector’s beam hitting a guy standing up in the front row. The retina converts this light into visual information with photosensitive cells called rods and cones—which dispatch the resulting data to the brain, producing a crystal-clear image. But, for a majority of people there’s one hitch: approximately 65% of adults possess misshapen eyeballs that skew the way light hits the retina, resulting in vision problems.

In the case of nearsightedness, or myopia, the eye takes on an oblong shape, causing incoming light rays to meet—and thus focus—at a point just shy of the retina. By the time the rays have actually reached the retina, they’ve begun to diverge again. The farther away the object reflecting light is from the eye, the more pronounced this effect will be, resulting in blurry vision at a distance. In farsighted eyes, it’s just the opposite: the light isn’t focused yet when it reaches the retina (consider a movie projector positioned too close to the screen), although the blurring this produces is less noticeable at greater distances.

These very common conditions have filled medical logs for 2,000 years, before which time everything was bigger so it didn’t matter as much. It wasn’t until the advent of corrective lenses in the 16th century, however, that anyone was able to do anything about it. For nearsighted eyes, convex lenses filter light through a surface that’s thinner at the center than at the edges, giving light rays an extra boost so they can converge on the retina for a clear, clean image. Lenses for the farsighted are thicker at the center, bending the light so that it, too, lands right where it should.
