I stopped going there years ago because of rude employees at the desk. I sent my sons there in January, 2015, in a pinch. My sons told me that they are still unfriendly. Today, I called with a question. I felt like I was a bother and that they didn't have time for my simple question! I WILL never go there again!

Never again. I went here to obtain new lenses for my glasses. I paid $400 for progressive lenses for my aviators and waited a week for them to arrive. The first optometrist gave to me and they worked fine for distance. I didn't try them for reading at that time. I took them home and tried them for I took them back the next day. The second optometrist that served me took a look a them and quickly told me that the lens blanks they ordered were too small and said that he'd order the correct lenses. I waited another week. I returned today, after their call with the expectation that all would be kosher and I'd finally have reading glasses. I went to the counter and they fetched the lenses from their storage bin. i gave them my glasses was told to come back in an hour. I came back early and was summoned to the customer service desk with great expectations. Alas, it was not to be. Once again they'd ordered the wrong size lens. I will likely have to wait a third week until the correct lenses arrive. Never again.
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.
