Eye Exams

Does anyone have experience with eye exams at places like Costco or Target? All three of my kids need to have their eyes checked, and we no longer have vision insurance, so at our "usual" place it would be about $300 per child. I'm hoping one of the low-cost options is a good one. Thanks for your advice!

I used to go to Walmart back in the '90s. They were always polite and professional.

My eyes are kind of funky, so I may continue with them, but $300 is more reasonable than the $1200 it would be for all 4 of us.

We go to Walmart (DD and I) and have always been really happy with their service. $50 and then I buy DD's glasses from goggles4u.com. Mine are more complicated but they do a good job.

I'm pretty sure my mom used to go to Costco and it was fine. I see an optometrist and she's awesome. State of the art equipment too. I don't think you need an ophthalmologist unless there's a problem.
