Try using Current Location search again. It will take 7-10 days before I get them back but thats not bad at all for the price I paid for them. I assume you took them back when they scratched and they replaced them for free? My own glasses from Costco never scratched, and I wore them daily for over a year before replacing them. Frugality is the mental approach we each take when considering our resource allocations.

We were not happy with the last place we went to. I know that prices for the eye exam vary by location, but I don't know how much prices for lenses may vary. However, their quality was average but still on par with other big box stores and eyeglass chains. Your comments raise several more questions in my mind. While driving in to direct sun on my early morning commute, traditional sun glasses are a little better but the Drivewears are great in all other conditions.
Some of the newest options seem to be a bit gimmicky and it'll be interesting to see if it sticks customizing the lens to multiple different measurements may make a difference, but it seems that the extra measurements may only help a small fraction of people and that using average measurements works fine for a majority of people - I'll change my opinion when someone shows me a good study - unfortunately most companies keep their research private. She said my glasses looked like they were still in very good shape these were the almost exactly a year ago. If the discussion continues, I may move it to its own thread. It seems there is quite a difference between the low end and the new better ones. After finishing that, she had me sit down at the machines. Costco carries a wide variety of designer sunglasses Costco.
My co-workers purchase their glasses at Costco as well and are very satisfied and repeat customers. Please contact your store to verify which plans they accept before your scheduled exam. All they care is to get your money.

Are eye exams all the same? When you use your own frame the lens measurements will be a little different from anything they have in their system so it's more work to process your frame. I'm leaning towards going the Costco route as I don't know that I'll appreciate the difference. By comparison, I recently tried a new doctor and got my glasses from their showroom.
I misplaced my receipt and asked for a copy to be sent to me. Would happily recommend to anyone. Yes, we offer transitions and other lens that cost less and more, but this is the lens we sell the most and what most folks want and need. The lenses include an anti-reflective coating. The offer is valid at your local Costco warehouse only, not online. The next time I go to the Westbury location and remember to do it , I'll ask there as well and report back. Takes 7-10 days to process.
My older child has glaucoma which apparently for my local optometrist is difficult to fit, thus the cost. She explained to me why my eyes were so nearsighted. We hope you find this information valuable. Though the prices are very high for the actual manufacturing costs of the products lenses, frames, coating , the markup is lower than in most places, and I have to say again, the service is good. Two of the Costco pairs are slightly scratched.
I would appreciate any information on this. I told her my insurance will cover a new pair and she recommended I get a pair of prescription sunglasses, but I told her that I don't wear sunglasses. One of the posts above said it was because too many frames were getting damaged and so corporate decided to get rid of the option around November of 2014. As for the price of the frames, I did notice they are now displaying several premium designer frames inside the case where the opticians work. They remain my first choice for quality glasses with excellent customer support at a much lower cost than what you will pay at other retail chains or a prviate optometrist. You could also choose to buy just the frames at a more typical retail store like Lenscrafters which is likely to have a much larger selection and then have Costco put in the lenses as you'll get good quality lenses at Costco for a lot less money than what Lenscrafters would charge for similar types of lenses.

Our anti-reflective treatment gives each lens a cosmetically appealing look while providing better scratch resistance. They have been able to keep their eye exam costs at Walmart fairly low. They had two sections of men's frames - one section which was for narrower glasses and one section for wider glasses. Just let the front staff know that you are here to see an eye doctor. This occurred over six weeks of time.
It just doesn't feel like they are trying to help me pay as little out of pocket. I went in for the usual annual eye exam. I didn't ask for that and my prescription is not that strong. Next there was the machine that blows air into your eye - putting one eye in front of the light at a time, to get a puff of air. I'd love to see some studies showing that anything beyond that actually improves vision for most people. I'm not saying that this will happen to everyone, but it will not happen to me again, at Costco anyways.
