Help my procrastinating husband see...

Can anyone recommend an optometrist in Columbus, Ohio?

My husband needs glasses and has been putting it off for years. He would also like contact lenses. Can anyone recommend a good optometrist in Columbus, Ohio who also carries a good selection of frames? Is there anything in particular we should be looking for? He has VSP vision insurance, if that helps.

I've been going to see Dr. Hirt at Columbus Vision Associates for years now, and he's great.

They seem to have a good selection of lenses there, but I normally get my contacts/glasses online.

For what it's worth, Eye Designs didn't give me my prescription until I explicitly asked for it, and I had to ask again to get them to put down my pupilary distance. I was also talked out of frames I really liked because they were "wrong for my face", likely because they didn't care or realize I like geeky glasses.

The actual exam was fine. I'm addicted to buying glasses online, also, so I am not a good representative sample. They do take VSP. VSP should have a list of doctors you can use on the website.
