This optometrist told me, despite my insistence that my vision had seemed to grow fuzzier over the past year, that my vision in my right eye had actually IMPROVED. I asked if that was normal. He responded that whatever I was doing, continue. I get to the contact lens area and get what they call ""fitted"" (don't quite understand how they justify charging $50 to hand me a pair of lenses) for trial lenses. My vision becomes skewed. The technician insisted that I needed to wear them for a few days and suckered me into buying a year's supply of contact lenses ""for the visiondirect price."" I have no insurance as a recent grad, so it came to fifty bucks for the exam, fifty for the ""fitting,"" and some one twenty for the lenses. Not cheap. Later that afternoon my vision was completely blurred. I switched out the reduced prescription lens for my old lens and my vision instantly improved. I called to let them know that something was not right and that I needed to cancel the order. The technician refused to cancel the order. Eventually, I had to go in and write a separate check for the exam and fitting and cancel the first check. Here's a break-down of what I spent and I still need a new prescription/exam:
$50 exam + $50 fitting + $27 cancelled check fee + $50-$100 for a new exam. Apparently, my father had the same issue with them a few years back and now has a useless pair of $400 glasses. They also told him they would make it right, but couldn't actually get it right even after he went in three times.
