Why do eyeglasses cost so much?
Eyeglasses are a complex optical device that is manufactured with high-precision equipment. Often expensive materials are used for the glasses. All of this explains why eyeglasses can be expensive.
What should you do before buying glasses?
Let's look at what to look for when buying eyeglasses. The first is, of course, quality. The second is the choice of lenses of glasses. Here we focus attention on the material: they can be either glass or plastic. The third is the choice of frames.
What's the difference between expensive glasses and cheap glasses for vision?
The quality and accordingly the price of the lens depends on the presence of coatings on the lenses. The higher the price, the more coatings on the lens. Coatings make our vision more comfortable. Lens manufacturers do not stand still and improve the quality of lenses.
How do I know which glasses fit my face?
It's best if the width of the frame is equal to or slightly larger than the widest part of your face. The upper line of the frames should coincide with the line of eyebrows. Smooth shapes of glasses will emphasize rounded curves of the face. To emphasize high cheekbones choose the "butterfly" or "cat-eye" glasses.
Where can I see better with glasses or contact lenses?
With lenses, you can see better, so it turns out that extra obstacles don't distort the image. Lenses don't shed dust, don't catch glare from the sun and don't distort peripheral vision-no matter where we look, the image stays sharp.

I have been going to The Eye Doctor Unlimited for 10+ years and have always been pleased with the service I received beginning with the receptionist. I don't mind wearing a mask because it protects me and their staff especially since they come into contact with a lot of patients. Being up close and personal they take a risk everytime they do an eye exam. I respect Dr McFerren and all of my Doctors and make every effort to comply with their office policies/rules. Dr. McFerren is great, very professional, very thorough and knows her stuff.

Currently at Walmart vision center & have been standing here for 10 minutes and no one’s even said I’ll be right with you, welcome, or nothing! As I was writing this review an assistant walked into the center and assisted me. For that I give the review 2stars. In the future they could at least acknowledge customers as opposed to having them stand for 10 to 20 minutes without saying someone will be with you.

I will never come back here again. I have been running around in circles attempting to get a renewed prescription on contacts. First, I was with America's Best; I used their contacts for a year and the prescription expired. I decided to get a yearly exam here and it was okay at first. The doc was quick and friendly. I was told my insurance wasn't in network with them. But my insurance works better at America's Best. So I took my new prescription to AB. They told me they couldn't take the prescription provided by Walmart. THEN I came back to Walmart and tried to explain to the receptionist the issue. I can tell when someone isn't truly understanding or hearing what I'm saying and she didn't. She was rude and just wanted to get me out of the way. The doctor was with someone and I waited. He said he'd be right with me without even asking ME what the issue is and as a result he gave me and INCORRECT prescription. I told them which one and when I went back to AB they told me they couldn't use that prescription either DESPITE me showing and telling the receptionist which one. I have been dealing with this for 2 to 3 months now, having to schedule appointments and hope that someone finally listens. There needs to be better communication and someone new at the front desk with better customer service and a better attitude.

The first pair of glasses I purchased from here worked great and I received great customer service. So, 3 years later I went back for another pair of glasses, the doctor advised I needed another exam. After my new exam she changed my prescription, I told her I could not see out of the new glasses but she told me my eyes would adjust if I keep wearing them. A year later I still can't see out of the glasses and they refuse to change them without charging me full price. I told them from the beginning when I first picked the glasses up I could not see. Now they refuse to change them without charging me the full price when I told them from the begining that new prescription was wrong.

I would love to give 5 stars because the receptionist I thought was rude initially. Dr.Partee was exceptional though very engaging and made the appointment go smoothly. This is my first time going to this location and would be back due to how smooth things went with Dr.Partee.
