I just got a pair of glasses from this place and didn't like them. Was told that they don't allow return or exchanges of any frames or lenses. What a horrible place! Be careful when you are thinking get a pair glassess there! No return and no exchanges!

Walmart - Vision Center
Had to ask for a refund after this Vision Center twice sold me lenses with defects (as pointed out by 2 independent optometrists). Flat out wrong strength, optical centering off, issues with lens coating. TWICE! And this after waiting two weeks for the original lenses because they didn't meet their own requirements. The only plus was the price. And the staff is nice, but that does not outweigh incompetence. If you go to this place and have any issues with the lenses they give you, get them checked against your prescription somewhere else (they'll check it for free). Don't wait several days and try to let your eyes adjust to their possible mistake. And yes, I did get the refund. No questions asked. Now I’m looking for glasses 2 months after I started at this Walmart Vision Center.

I know this review is lengthy, but please make some time to read it through, very important. I went to the optometrist tied with Lenscrafters for an eye exam and he prescribed me with glasses for use as needed. I checked out some frames with lenscrafters and liked an expensive one. The person who attended us ended up prescribing the premium lens costing $330 though all i needed was the basic plastic one. And despite having insurance, i was given a quotation to pay quite an unreasonable amount out of pocket. I didn't feel comfortable spending $200 out of pocket while having insurance so i decided to come back at a later date to place the order. Meanwhile I called my insurance and understood that i don't need premium lens and also that i dont have to pay so much for the prescription. I went again and chose a comparatively less valued frame so its within my insurance limit and chose plastic lens. The reception from the attendant quickly changed from charming to hasty because i know so much about my insurance and the idea of my out of pocket and also that i'm not falling for their scam once again. Once my order was placed with bare minimum out of pocket and their hate, i was promised to get my glasses back in 1 hour. Then i received a call in 30 minutes that they don't make plastic lens with anti-reflective quoting on it (as i wanted) and that it has to be sent somewhere else and will take 10 'business' days, which i felt was too long. They asked me to upgrade to polycarbonate for extra cost which i objected and asked to cancel the order. I met in person to clarify the order and get the money back when the manager said he will upgrade to polycarbonate free of cost as they promised a wrong time and date initially. I understood that they upgraded not because of the said reason but because they dont want to loose the $200 sale. See, understand that all business is for making profit, no-one does any favour to you. Also, once you get the prescription, call your insurance and read them through it to know what will be the out of pocket. You don't want to pay a penny more than you have to, there is no purpose in having insurance and paying premium otherwise.
Tips & Advices
While the first appointment is the most comprehensive, the majority of appointments with an ophthalmologist begin with a basic eye exam followed by a refraction to test if glasses are needed. Other tests might include an eye muscle coordination exam, a check of pupil response and peripheral vision, slit lamp microscope test to look at the anterior segment of the eye, and an intraocular pressure assessment.
Most eye doctors will charge different amounts for their services, but a basic eye exam with an ophthalmologist can range from $50 to $300. Additional tests and treatment will add to the price.
Ophthalmology subspecialties include strabismus/pediatric ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology, retina/uveitis ophthalmology, cornea/anterior segment ophthalmology, ophthalmic plastic surgery, and reconstruction.
Ophthalmologists can diagnose macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, ocular albinism, vitreous traction, cataracts, astigmatism, myopia, retinoblastoma, and many more.
The most popular ophthalmology procedures are cataract, laser eye treatment, and glaucoma surgeries.
