Went to vision works for glasses in June, when I recieved them they looked amazing, all my friends complimented me on them. Within the first month the nose piece broke, no big deal I stopped at Wally World and got new ones. Within the second month the metal frames started to discolor, and now 5 1/2 months after purchase the metal broke apart not a screw part that could be fixed but the welded piece. I called vision works and was spoken to very nicely and told I had to bring them in and speak to Scott the general manager, which I did today. He was wonderful, he looked at the glasses, apologized and told me to pick out new frames, I thought they had to be the same size, so asked for help, he told me the lenses were made for an exact fit for those frames, and said they had to make all new lenses, when I asked how much that was going to cost, he said no charge. I believe it was my fault for picking out such a dainty, fragile frame, but I am very happy with Scott and Vision works for standing behind their product. Thanks Scott

I had a Great experience, was very educated on examination for both glasses and color contacts. Dr. Hinshaw was patient & respectful of all my questions and re- educated me on any issue, felt that I was safe and truthworthy that my eye are in Great care for any disease or future issues. All Staff was educated and helpful to get my order placed especially Maria. I will highly recommend to go again and will be a faithful patient to Visionworks.

Tips & Advices
A regular eye exam focuses on the general health of your eyes, while a contact lens exam is focused specifically on how your eyes react to contact lenses. A contact lens exam tests how well you see while wearing contacts. Your eyes are also evaluated to make sure your tear ducts produce enough tears to allow you to comfortably wear contact lenses.
The cost of contact lenses depends on the type of lens being purchased and the vision problem that is being corrected. For nearsightedness, you'll be able to purchase a box of six lenses for roughly $25. Each lens needs to be replaced after a couple of weeks, which will require you to purchase 10 boxes of lenses each year, for a total of $250 per year. Contact lenses that treat other conditions like astigmatism and presbyopia are more expensive, and can cost $500-$700 a year.
Some people may experience certain side effects when wearing contact lenses. Dry eyes may result, and some people may experience eye or eyelid inflammation. Some contact lens wearers may also develop allergic reactions to the liquid contact lens solution that is used to clean and disinfect the lens.
The cost of an eye exam can range $50-$250 or more. The cost will depend on the tests that are included, and whether the exam involves a contact lens fitting. The cost of the test will also hinge on whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
An eye exam typically takes 20-30 minutes. If additional tests are required, the process could take longer. Eye exams test your sight, but they are also used to make sure your eyes are in good health. During the test, your eye care professional will ask if you've been experiencing any problems with your vision. Your eyes will be examined using a device known as an ophthalmoscope, and the movement of coordination of your eyes will be checked.
