Why Get Your Glasses From Your Optometrist?
After a comprehensive eye examination to determine the correct prescription, your optometrist makes a number of other decisions to ensure you have the proper eyewear to suit your lifestyle. You only receive the full benefit of your prescription if your eyewear is properly fitted.
All eyewear is not created equal and getting a "bargain" price does not mean you are receiving a good value by any means. Your optometrist has the advantage of offering glasses from a variety of different reputable labs in order to guarantee quality eyewear. Unlike many retail vision chains and optical stores, your optometrist is not limited to only specific manufacturers.
One of the best things about acquiring your eyeglasses from your optometrist is knowing the "true" cost of your eyewear. Retail optical channels may have tremendous markups and the actual cost of your glasses will never be disclosed to you. At Old South Optometry, you are protected from misleading pricing by an itemized invoice. Your itemized bill contains the actual cost of your glasses, there is no markup. To cover the cost of professional services involved in preparing and fitting your glasses, a simple dispensing fee is charged and itemized on your invoice along with the manufacturers cost of your eyewear. Our optometric dispensing staff is trained to provide the same high standards of professional care you have come to expect from your optometrist.
