I didn't use health insurance on my last visit and I thought it was going to be more expensive than it was. I paid about the same for an eye exam and frames than I did for frames alone at the Walmart Vision Center with insurance!! I loved the service as well. Everyone was so friendly and informative. The doctor and staff both made sure I knew what they were doing and why! I am definitely getting my checkups here from now on!! -RosaMaria Lara
