Wanna check yourself? Wal Mart Stores Inc. today announced that it has sharply reduced the prices for both contact lenses and youth eye- wear.
Committed to help Americans to save health care costs, Walmart and 1-800 CONTACTS, the world's largest retailer of contact lenses, are working together to help more Americans save as much as 12 to 50 percent on the costs of a yearly supply of contact lenses. Additionally, Walmart has lowered its prices on glasses and frames for children and teenagers to make quality eyewear more affordable for families across the nation.
Walmart's program with 1-800 CONTACTS offers the convenience of high quality care provided by some of the nation's finest independent eye doctors combined with world class customer support offered by 1-800 CONTACTS' 24-hour online and telephone customer service representatives to all Walmart customers. Walmart and 1-800 CONTACTS estimate that customers have already saved more than $25 million since the program began rolling nationwide in January.
Walmart have eliminated the hassle of mail-in rebates and replaced them with instant savings at the register. Their alliance improves access and lowers costs - enabling contact lens wearers to replace their lenses more frequently and live healthier lives.
Walmart has also lowered prices on quality eyewear for children 18 years old and younger. Year-round, parents and caregivers will find youth frames and lenses for as low as $39. Walmart will also provide a one year guaranteed free replacement if the glasses are damaged.
At Walmart Vision Center customers will find 18 different youth frame styles and colors for only $10.
Additionally, customers have three youth lens options:
* $29 - Single Vision Youth Poly Impact resistant lens
* $49 - Single Vision Poly Impact resistant with Platinum finish (finish helps reduce glare)
* $79 - Single Vision Poly Impact resistant with Platinum finish and Transitions (transition lenses darken in sunlight to protect eyes from harmful rays from the sun)
The 1-800 CONTACTS and youth eyewear offerings will be available in nearly 2,500 Walmart Vision Centers. For more information, customers can visit www.walmart.com.
