I’m new to the US system for eye doctors. I chose Vision Boutique because they were in my vision plan’s network. The staff were friendly, and the eye examination was good. When it came to choosing glasses, I was unable to ascertain the true cost of any frames, despite asking directly numerous times.
Eventually I was told my chosen spectacles would cost around $700 total, of which I would pay about $250 after my vision plan. I looked around online and ordered the exact same glasses with my prescription (and all the extra lens coatings) for $150 total, without using my vision plan at all.
I liked the place and the staff, but not enough to justify the glasses costing $550 more! That is a ridiculous mark-up, and made it pointless having a vision plan. My advice is to shop around once you’ve found the frames you like – hence the low review.
