            • Michelle, you generally get what you pay for. The lenses at Walmart start at $70. And if you want higher index lenses, bifocal lenses, progressive lenses or free form progressive lens, you have to pay more.
              Exam Cost may vary by location. Routine Eye Exam start at $75.00, while Routine + Contact Lens Fitting start at $125.00.

      1. Hi I was wondering if you guys except walk ins as well as self pay patients? If so how much would it be for an eye exam for contacts?

        • Hi Emma,

          The Vision Center accepts walk-ins when there is a doctor in and there are no appointments scheduled. Not all Walmart vision centers have a doctor everyday. Sometimes there is a doctor 3 days a week.

          A comprehensive eye health and vision exam at Walmart is $64. A basic contact lens exam is $118.

          Please remember that we do not have any affiliation with Walmart.

        • In 2019, the average cost of an eye exam at Walmart starts at $75, while an exam and contact lens fitting costs between $125 and $145.

      2. These hours of operation are incorrect. The hours are Monday thru Friday 9-7 Saturday ,9-6 and some stores are open Sundays 12-5. I know because I work there.

        • You need to call the Walmart Vision Center you plan to visit and your Medicaid MCO (The company on your insurance card) if your state has them. Some Walmart’s accept Medicaid, some don’t. Vision benefits vary from MCO to MCO. The basic Medicaid benefit *shoud* cover your exam, single vision lenses (ie not bi or tri focals) and a limited number of frame options once every two years for adults. If you have an MCO, some offer richer benefits. I’ve seen some who will go so far as covering contacts even if they are not medically necessary.

        • “Most items purchased at Walmart.com may be returned either to a store or by mail, unless stated otherwise in the list of exceptions below by department. Items must be returned in the original manufacturer’s packaging. We strongly recommend you keep your packaging for at least the first 90 days after purchase.” Click here for more info.

        • Yes, it is possible, but your insurance will cover contacts OR glasses.

          If you use your insurance to pay contacts, you will end up paying only for glasses. On the other hand, if your insurance cover glasses, you will end up paying only for contacts.

          Hope this helps!

      3. I bought my glasses at Walmart. I’ve had them a little over a year. The frame broke and the manager taped it back together because she said it cannot be fixed. She says since they discontinued my frame that I will now have to pay the entire bill for new frame AND prescription. Why can’t Walmart just substitute and new frame?

        • Walmart is offering a 12-month replacement guarantee that their Vision Centers will repair or replace broken or damaged glasses, for no charge. Your glasses are no longer under warranty.

      4. This is the 2nd pair of glasses I’ve purchased and I have had the same problem with both pairs. There seems to be bubbles forming at the top of the Lens near the frame. I was just wondering if others have had this problem too? Do you know what is causing this issue? It’s very unsightly and it appears to be a defect in the glass.

        • Hi Patricia! Yes, other people have had problems, too. Some have ended up with tiny spots on the lenses, like little bubbles. They’re tiny, like half a millimetre across at most but there are hundreds on each lens. My advice is to changed opticians. Don’t waste money on coatings. It has nothing to do with how you clean your lenses.
