do you really want to entrust your vision to the least cost provider? i would think not. you can always get contacts on the cheap after your exam.

They do a fine job. Eyes exams are very simple procedures. It dosnt take a brain surgen to figure out what rx you need...go to costco and save a few $$$. Your going to get the same rx if you go to costco or somewhere else and spend $120...like I said its not brain surgery to give an eye exam. You would have to be a pretty big moron to screw it up...

it cannot be stressed enough that these services are not provided by _____ <-insert megamart here, but by individuals that are independent of selected megamart. these people are trained docs not monkeys and you must as with all health care be your own advocate and that starts with knowledge.

What credentials do New York licensed optometrists have?
New York licensed optometrists have completed a four-year postgraduate program of classroom and clinical training that resulted in the doctor of optometry (O.D.) degree. Most practitioners have also completed an undergraduate degree with an emphasis in chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, and physics.

Optometry programs include advanced studies in optics (the science of light and vision) and the human visual system, as well as extensive training in lens design, construction, application and fitting. Optometric education also includes studies in human anatomy, general pharmacology, general pathology, sensor and perceptual psychology, biochemistry, statistics and epidemiology.

New York State licensed optometrists have also passed an intensive three-part examination, including a practical or "hands-on" examination.

Lenscarfters Dr has licence from 1991 while Sams club Dr. has Licence only from 2003. Now do u guys think I should go do it Lenscarfters ?? what are ur thoughts. THANKS

Well I'm thinking about going to Sam's club in Rochester to get an exam too... I doubt it's that big of a deal...I mean, I already have a prescription and as long as they don't tell me some crazy nonsense for a new prescription and it sounds somewhat similar to my old one I think it's ok.
