I wanted to check out the Walmart vision center for myself… Here’s what I ended up finding out!
The Walmart vision center is among the most reliable and affordable places to buy appropriate glasses and contact lenses for your eyes.
Typically, you would visit the center for eye tests and get your vision number prescription from verified professionals with the assistance of top-notch testing equipment.
After getting a prescription, you can grab affordable and stylish glasses or contact lenses to match your personality.
My own experience going…
Before we get into the things that I found out when I went, I would actually rate this a 4.7 out of 5 in terms of experience. Very similar to going to Walmart for my nails, I found that visiting a Walmart location for my eyecare needs rather than an optometrist (note: all doctors at the Walmart vision center are optometrists), is quite easy!
I would highly recommend this for people who live in small towns and might need to visit one of these locations for their common needs. Those in larger cities, like a metropolitan area, are probably not going to need these services at their local Walmart (many optometrist offices available to offer the same things).

Each product has a different warranty period depending upon its nature and brand. Walmart Vision Center accepts major insurance providers to safeguard your health and wellness. These insurers will vary by the state that you’re in. Although, they do suggest that they carry most major insurers across the country (I would expect that given the size of Walmart!)
