You can take your RX anywhere you want to, but keep in mind that the place with the Doctor might be more helpful if you have issues with the RX. The Doctor I work for does very meticulous exams. We rarely rarely have any re dos due to RX changes. If patients get their glasses from us we have a lab that will re do that pair if the rx is not right for a full year. If the pt goes to another place, and that RX is not right (IT HAPPENS!) and they come back to US and we have to figure out what is wrong with them and it is THEIR fault, we charge a service fee for being the detective. So, I laways reccomend having them made where your exam is at, at least for the first pair so you know you can see well. Then take your rx and get your spair at a different lace if you want to. Just do not give away the original of your RX. Give them a photo copy and keep your copy. It makes me mad when someone keeps my original. Pet peeve. But, my pet peeve.

It's not written in stone that you need to buy from the adjacent store.

My current optometrist is right next to Lenscrafters...but I won't pay the Lenscrafters prices (and had another MAJOR problem non eyewear related that I will never be a customer there again for my children)...and I took my prescription elsewhere. My optometrist is very capable and actually gave me my prescription and suggested this other place!! (I'm newer to my area, and didn't know where I should go).

I've been to optometrists at Walmart in former locations, and I did purchase through them, more out of convenience than anything.

If you know of a sale going on this week at an eyewear store, sure! go for the sale prices. I would recommend having them double check the prescription when you pick them up. The store I went to did that for me...no formal eye exam...just read the chart to make sure I was seeing 20/20. I will definitely take my children's prescriptions there if/when they need glasses since I do not anymore.

You could, but you don't HAVE to. I do, since I like my doctor and the people in the shop, but if you're either not satisfied with the people there, the prices, or the styles, then you can go elsewhere, just make sure you have a copy of your prescription.

Buy your glasses where ever you want! Unless your are going to a place that offers free checkups with purchase or something like that then you are not obligated in any way to purchase your glasses at that store.

I get my eyes checked at Costco and get my contacts there. I do not, however, get my glasses there. I don't like the styles and it takes a week to get them.

I go to Lens Crafters. They are ready in only one hour. They have great styles for every budget. They bill some insurance companies. Also, if you don't like how they look (I think it is a 1-month period), they will take the frames back so you can pick something else out.
