How much for WalMart lenses and frames?

I was told the exam will be about $50, but do you know how much lens and frames are? I am not looking for anything fancy, just basic metal frames. Thanks!

  • They can be as low as $50, on up to more expensive frames and thinner lenses. I spent $200 on my son's glasses there, but the lenses are super light and the frames are basically indestructible.

  • At our walmart..it depends on the style of frames. Just basic metal ones you can get for $9.. then then lenses should be like $30 i think

  • I have astigmatism and without insurance, a 90 dollar set of frames, lenses with no special coatings, it was a little over 200 out the door for just the glasses.

  • if there for you they can range from 200 + my little girl got her glasses from walmart and never again will this happen. when she goes and gets her new eye exam in Dec we will be going to lense crafters. we have had to replace her glasses 4 times now from walmart. thanks god for insruance. i think there glasses are really crappy. ive been wearing glasses now for over 10 years now so i know how to take care of them. but shes only 4. and they give me attutide everytime i bring them in : / if you take care of yours properly it should be fine but you are just as well off going to like vision works or someplace else. lense crafters many places have a 2 for 99$ thing . thats how i got my 2 pairs of glasses.
