Pearle Vision - What a bunch of Rip offs!!!!
That place is a rip off!!!!!! I spent $135.00 for an exam!! No glasses, no contacts! I called to ask the price of their exams and was told $45.00. However, after getting my exam, was told that the price was actually $110.00 plus an additional $25.00 for Dilation. Then I get to the register, and find out that the doctor forgot to even put in the dilation drops!!! She thought I was done! It was the girl at the register who said that I had to go back in after my eyes were dilated. Then to add insult, the Dr.came over to me and looked into my eyes pretending that she was checking the progress of my dilation. "Oh, I need to put another drop in, they are dilated yet". So on top of me being overcharged, my time was being wasted because their communication was horrible!
So when I finally got back to the register. I asked about contacts. Since I mostly wear my glasses I was only interested in 1 box for now. She tells me that I can't purchase 1 box, the minimum quantity is 2 boxes! What the ***? Then I asked why they charge so much more for a "Contact Exam" than for a "Regular Exam". All she said was that it's because I'm getting fitted for contacts and getting a prescription. They don't explain that over the phone. I didn't know there was a difference. So I pretty much paid an extra $65 for them to tell me that my eyeball diameter and contact prescription was the same!! It's ridiculous.
All these people care about is milking as much money as they possibly can out of customers. The insurance is a joke there. You can't even use it unless you buy something from them (like glasses or contacts). I will not go back there, ever!!! I'll go to my old eye place where I paid $100 for a Full exam, contacts included!!
