It's oh-so-bad! I'd never go there again! I took my son there to get new glasses and it took A MONTH for them to get them in! I called after about 2 weeks with no word and they tried to tell me that I CANCELLED AND THEN REORDERED...that's the reason for the delay. WHAT?! When I told them that I did no such thing, they had me talk to the manager, who said there was a mixup and the glasses had to be reordered, which should take another 2 weeks! So, I waited. After waiting the whole 2 weeks, I finally got them, along with a warranty, and left. Just short of 3 months later, the screw on my son's glasses falls off and he lost the lense. I took the glasses back and explained the situation. They said the warranty does not cover loss, which is fine, I'd pay for another lense...after all, how expensive can it be? After being told it would cost a WHOPPING $160, I left and went elsewhere, where I got 2 brand new pairs of glasses for $180. I'd NEVER go back to Shopko Optical. It is not worth the headache or the long wait!!!
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.
