I spent $220 on JUST the High index lens for my son (per their recommendations) because my son has always had to deal with thick, heavy glasses due to prescription. I got this type of lens over the polycarbonate lens because they said it would be much much thinner than the polycarbonate lens. Well...We picked them up yesterday 8/30/2015 and they are just as thick if not thicker than his polycarbonate lenses. We asked if this is the correct lens and the women that was helping us asked the more senior woman to identity to make sure. The more senior women actually "flicked" (yes... Flicked) the lens and said "yup, it makes a differant pitch so that's how I know" and handed them back to the lady. There is NO WAY These are the thinnest like I asked for... No way! Oh. And I was VERY upset when the 1st lady helping us gives my son his new glasses and when he puts them on says to him , "oh, wow, your eyes look huge in those! But they look good"REALLY???? , way to go Sears optical... making a kid want to wear there glasses!!!! **The gentalman working there is very nice!

Insight Eyecare
A very positive experience. Thorough exam and everything was explained clearly. Everyone is very friendly, and Dr. Travis and her staff were so patient with my teenage daughter who had a hard time deciding on her frames. Even called back the next day after she changed her mind and it was no problem. The office is a little hard to see from the highway, but it is right next to Donato’s. Keep searching till you find it. You won’t regret it!

I had to return a bunch of clothes that didn't fit my daughter and the person who helped me couldn't have been nicer. I know I must have been a pain in the rear, but she didn't make me feel that way. Excellent store.
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.
