The following review of the Costco Vision Center and glasses was completed by Vicki, co-founder of Women Who Money. She visited a Costco Eye Center for an eye exam and four new pairs of glasses.
Costco will update any old Rx frame for a fee, but I’m not sure what it is. The lens center that Costco uses may not be able to modify the lenses because of whatever reason, such as size or shape.
My Experience at Costco Optical
I was tired of squinting (even with my glasses on), so I knew it was time to get an eye exam. I normally use local vision clinics, but I remembered that Costco offered them as well. This was my first trip to the Costco Vision Center, and I wanted to share my initial experience in 2019 and my follow-up two years.

While the vast majority of comments we received were positive, we try to provide a sense of both the good and bad aspects our readers mentioned.
Warby Parker is one of the world’s most popular eyeglasses retailers. The Eye Department at Kaiser Permanente offers a free exam and 20% off glasses or contacts every year. Opticare Eye Health & Vision Centers are private doctor’s offices that offer discounts on frames, lenses, and contact lens services. opti-care eye care.
Because I need to wear prescription glasses (with progressive trifocals) all of the time, I occasionally purchase a backup pair and prescription sunglasses.
Although I like the frames I’ve been wearing for the last two years, one of them had a fracture and could not be reused. If you want to use frames that you already own, Costco charges a fee ($20-30) to make a mold of your glasses.
