  • I bought some about two years ago or so, and they were around 150$ with the lenses and everything. I think the eye exam was free, not sure if that was a special they were running or not. The glasses were small-frames and I still have them; plus they do minor repairs on them for free if you bought them there!

  • I have. The exam was $59, the glasses, frames and lenses, were $117. And I will never go there again. At ours, the people are very rude, they are reluctant to repair anything, and the frames broke half a dozen times in less than a yr. We now go to a place called Lange Eyecare, we pay a little bit more, but the people are a whole lot nicer, the frames are better quality, and they not only repair, but will even adjust your frames if you come in.

  • Yes we have it costed us 89 for the visit and 150 for the glasses. We have been back since. We love our vision center and never had any problems. I can go back whenever i need anything. All walmarts are different you have to. Find out for yourself.

  • I bought glasses from Walmart 3 years ago. The exam cost me $99 and the glasses cost me $300 about because I got the "frameless" style... now I have vision insurance and the exam along with changing the lenses (not buying new frame) still cost me $250 (but that wasn't from Walmart) because the vision only pays part of the exam and 20% off the lenses... -.-

  • I was checking this out the other day, just getting prices. I picked out the frames I liked, they were about 60. I asked for an approx. total cost including the eye exam. It would be between 200-300. The 300 was for bi-focals and the kind that change in the sun. I'm still saving up!

  • Yes for DH Not me! I haven't had new Glasses or contacts in going on 7 Years! I can't Afford to! But by the time All was Done it was close to $400.00 for him with Exam! He looked for what was Cheap & not that Ugly!! When my DD went there.. Poorer then Poor. They asked if she'd like A Free Trial pair of contacts. She Said, Yes. But then her Eye Exam Went Up!! Her glasses Break Alot, they will straighten them! But Not A Fond of what I see others go through or paid!!! Its Sad to not be Able to afford to see & get By..
