My room mate had our first appointment on 10/28/2014. He already had a new prescription so he picked out his frames and ordered his glasses. The frames he chose did not qualify for the 2 for one but with the Groupon he had purchased he got a fair price and was happy with his glasses. Several weeks later he broke the glasses and the lens fell out. Upon returning to the store he was given a duplicate frame, lenses put and he want on his way. Gary is very pleased with his glasses and the service.I also had a Groupon and needed a new eye exam. I received a very thorough exam and overall a pleasant, reasonably priced service. Upon receiving my glasses I realized that the close vision was a bit blurry but the distant vision was very clear. I have an unusual problem with only 30% vision in my eye and on 11/19 I received a free re-exam, pleasant helpful service and am waiting for my new and improved glasses.

I have been a patient at Gulf Coast Vision Center for several years. I have contact lenses and glasses and have a history of retinal tears. As a result, I am very picky and hypervigilant about my eye doctors and my eye care. I primarily see Dr. Reynolds but have also used Dr. Casey recently. Both doctors are thorough, knowledgeable, professional, and listen to you. I have always felt that I am getting great care here.They have also seen my daughter on short notice for an emergency within 30 minutes of me calling the office. The office staff is friendly and helpful as well. I am a patient for life!The negative reviewers need to look at the big picture of their eyes being cared for, not leave an eye doctor because their contact lenses took too long to be ordered.

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.
