Read product disclosure for insurance
I went to OPSM thinking that they were the Leaders in eye care, I found their optometrists to be very knowledgeable and was hoping for a continued service. Once we done the test I was shown the range of eye wear and was basically rushed into picking a frame, also some safety glasses. However I was shocked at the price. But due to OPSM offering an insurance policy on the glasses at a reasonable price I accepted the price for the glasses thinking I would be covered. After a very short while the lenses deteriorated and I found I was having to wear...my old glasses sometimes. I unfortunately had an accident with my safety glasses and made a claim, not long after I was advised by OPSM’s preferred insurance company that they weren’t going to insure me anymore and without an explanation. I reached out to OPSM to find out why my overpriced glasses were not going to be insured but they never contacted me again. After contacting them again I was told that I should have read the Product Disclosure for the policy. I have never seen the product disclosure nor have they sent it to me highlighting what I should have read. In summary I have changed Optometrist companies to a company that has just as qualified optometrists and eyewear that is less than half price of OPSM. Also they have a better range and can fit me in for an appointment at very short notice. If people are looking for a great optical company then they should consider SpecSavers.
Customer for over 35 years and no complaints in the past
Recently supplied frames from another opsm
Store after having eye test and needing new script
A months wait and lots of excuses and still no glasses
We had an eye test, told we would be bulk billed, had to pay $120 for scans, not told about the extra cost until we were leaving. Be aware of the hidden cost.
Worst service & smart alec's
Well I went back to the store to have my glasses adjusted yet again (over 6 visits now). Still not right. What is with people just lunging at your face & grabbing glasses off your face. Shoving them back on, way too close to your face (which hurts). Ignorant. Please use your words. Its bad enough you have no training. Just having a crack. No idea what your doing. I would not even give you a rating of Terrible, but there is no lower choice on your selection. Wonder why!
Great optometrist but poor customer service staff
Be careful of customer service staff as some don’t do what is right for the customer and try to get you out of there as fast as possible. I was given the wrong prescription contacts lenses as they didn’t double check the prediction on the box before handing it to me and another time they changed my frames without telling me and tried to send me out of the store with poorly fitted glasses. When I brought up how obviously wrong they sat they pushed them onto my face to force them to fit instead of taking the time to properly adjust them like I ha...d asked. The only reason I paid extra to go to OPSM was because I thought the higher prices provided more trust in the process but this definitely isn't the case. Its a shame that particular customer service staff let the store down as the optometrist have always been great.
Awesome customer experience
I attended the Barkly Square (Brunswick) OPSM store today, and saw Jeremy Chan as my Optometrist. Highly recommend this Optometrist; he's extremely thorough and knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Store manager was also excellent, with so many helpful recommendations. Came away from the store experience feeling completely satisfied with my purchase, and really impressed by the level of customer service. Great work Jeremy and team! Mike G
High end pricing with poor after sales service
After spending thousands on four Armani glasses in a few years I came for some adjustment to their North Syd branch, I bought the glasses less than a year ago, after a rude “Did you buy your glasses here?”, they guy quickly adjusted my glasses. I went home and took a closer look and they looked uneven, still. I then took them Back, they guy told me nothing wrong with them and quickly adjusted again. My glasses still felt not right, but couldn’t be bothered. Emailed OPSM and received standard useless response.
I then emailed some pics to 1001 an...
Lost longtime customer due to terrible customer service
I have had a contact lense prescription with them for years, but had problems recently and after 2 emails and a phone call they had made no effort to resolve the issues I was having with their online portal, despite being told I was about to run out of lenses and a few days away from giving birth. So I have switched to specs savers.
My subscription didn’t get processed as usual and I did not receive any email notification. It said there was a problem with the payment method but the card is working fine for other things. After first email I was...told to change the refill date and the rest of my query was ignored, this didn’t work and I didn’t receive any system notification the refill had failed (again). I tried changing payment method - couldn’t do it either on phone or PC. Tried cancelling subscription to add a new one and it said it hadn’t worked (later when I checked again it had cancelled). I emailed back to explain that none of this had worked, and after 4 days hadn’t received a response. Finally called this morning and explained the situation, and the person I spoke to couldn’t help and said someone would call me in 15 minutes. Surprise surprise I am still waiting.
Lense pop out after 3months
Lense pop out after 3months very disappointed with frames ,glasses cost over $400 expected quality for that price ,worst part lense pop out while driving ,disappointed OPSM Ashfield very disappointed
This is a store that understands customer service, best manager ever.
In Hobart yesterday I was hoping to get my glasses repaired. I'm a pensioner and had broken the little notepad on two pairs. Walked into Specsavers and asked a young girl with zero manners and even less personality or customer service for help. She looked at the glasses for a millisecond and said no, can't do it and I don't have that size notepad. I said I have both notepads in my bag , She said "sorry, can't help".I walked on further and saw the OPSM store & thought It's worth a second opinion.. The manager herself, this lovely lady named Pam ...served me. I showed her the glasses and she said "I will try, not sure about the second pair, give me ten minutes".I went and had lunch, came back and she said "I have fixed them both, new notepads on both". I asked how much and was told, no charge. How amazing, and Specsavers, you will never get another dollar from me. Your staff are lazy, rude, ignorant and very bad at customer service. Everyone I speak to, I will remember to mention this as a great example of how to do something well & how to do it so badly..The funniest thing of all is that my broken glasses were from Specsavers!!!
lenses pop out the frame on nearly new glasses
lenses pop out the frame on nearly new glasses which I used for less than month only on weekends when I read books. I just put them gently on coffee table . I would not suggest anyone to buy glasses with no full frame.
I went to OPSM store really disappointed how bad fitting is but they just put new nylon tape around the lenses not willing to listen how unhappy I was .
don't buy Vogue VO4062B
Launceston , Tasmania
I was traumatised by the front desk lady.
Did the eye test. Bought a pair of glasses. Phoned to request a refund because I heard there’s animal testing by the brand. I wanted to confirm there’s no animal testing because I actually didn’t want to have a refund as well as I needed a pair of glasses.
The front desk lady had no idea that it’s possible that some company could test the lens on animals.
Then she said they were not doing any animal testing BEFORE she sent an email to her boss to confirm it’s true and HUNG UP my call. Then I went to the...
Still waiting for a refund
I had to return my new pair of glasses as they did not fit and were too heavy because of my prescription strength. This is something I believe an experienced staff member should have foreseen and avoided. Unfortunately, I was unable to find a smaller frame as stock was limited because of covid. I therefore requested a refund. Whilst I was reimbursed I am still waiting for a refund to my health insurance and it has been 2 months. I have since purchased another pair at another optometrist but have been unable to claim through my health insurance because of the failure of head office to process the refund to my health insurance.
Excellent Service, Top Quality Frames and Lenses
Recently had my 2 yearly eye test and upgrade for new glasses at OPSM North Lakes, Queensland. Dr. Phil Tan gave me my eye test and he was simply awesome. Brian assisted me with my choice of Oakley Square Back titanium frames. These guys made the whole process of choosing my progressive lenses and frames so easy.
Dr. Phil conducted my eye test and was very professional. Thank you so much. Brian in the store was also very professional and stated my glasses would be ready with my new prescription progressive lenses in two weeks. Was so surprise...d to get them in just 6 days. and the quality is fantastic. I wear glasses all the time and these Oakley glasses and top level lenses are simply fantastic. Great service from the guys up at OPSM North Lakes. These guys were so busy on the day and Dr. Phil and Brian still made me feel welcome and the experience was so easy. I highly recommend OPSM North lakes in Queensland. Awesome!
Still waiting for my glasses
I ordered lenses at the OPSM Bagot House branch in Adelaide on 1 July 2020 with an indicated delivery date 19 July. Staff at the branch have been very professional (helpful, polite and knowledgeable). Regrettably, 6 weeks down the track I am yet to receive my glasses and, frankly, at this stage I am not sure if I ever will! On 22 June I was told they were in transit from Sydney and will arrive soon. When that did not happen, I was told I should expect them on 3 August. After the glasses did not arrive on that date I was told that the company...manufactures lenses in Thailand and my lenses failed to pass quality control upon their arrival to Sydney twice, hence, they are now being re-made for the third time and the OPSM cannot provide any timeline as to when they will be ready. If there was a 'no star' option to rate this organization it would have been my choice! Note, this comment does not relate to the branch where I made my order - it seems staff there have some challenges with what appears to be extremely poor internal company processes.
OPSM Earlville staff absolutely disgusting
Didn’t ask who I was, didn’t check her bookings, didn’t care about anything I said. Wouldn’t let me explain why I was 17 mins late after a 2 hour drive (a nearby car accident) Gave me the worst attitude, then starting raising her voice and told me to shut up and leave the store. When I tried to talk she put her hands over her ears and walked off!
Decent service, poor product recommendations
Staff are friendly at OPSM Perth. Measurements for prescriptions were accurate and proper, but the same cannot be said for the recommendations for frames.
I have a rather short nose bridge, which when combined with a very strong myopic index means that my glasses tend to be on the heavy and thick side. Even with reduced-thickness lenses, these still weigh enough to tip over and/or slide down when balancing solely on the nose bridge.
The previous optometrists that I'd always gone to would have a staff member go through their range of frames t...o find the right one. Not just one that looked right - it had to grip correctly, it had to balance correctly, and it had to take into account facial shape and structure so that it wouldn't just slide off at the lightest sweat or bump. Thinking that perhaps the staff at OPSM were similar, I took the shot seeing as they were the optometrists closest to work. Boy, was I wrong. The staff picked glasses frames that -looked- good. They didn't attempt to check the fit or grip around the temples or around the ears. Nose bridge fit was fine - but only with the placeholder light plastic lenses they have on the display items. When the glasses finally came, I thought that perhaps they would grow on me in time. No such luck. The lenses were poorly fitted to the frames. You could rock them from side to side and back to front while cleaning. The slightest bump would knock them loose and on to the floor. Slightest bit of grease on the nose bridge would cause them to slide down continuously throughout the day. Wearing headphones that fitted over ears? Good luck. After three months, I was completely fed up with these and asked if they could adjust them somehow to make them tighter around the ears. Something. Anything.
Dubious product quality
I bought glasses from OPSM about 1 year ago. One of the lens started to flake. I have been wearing glasses all my life, I have never seen this. I stopped by Specsavers to get advice. They said it was a serious defect and I should be able to get it replaced for free from OPSM.
At OPSM Perth (726 Hay Street), they told me the glasses were more than 1 year old so I should expect them to break down.
[Edit] I went to OPSM Claremont (9 Bay View Terrace). They look at my glasses and immediately agreed to give me replacement, since the issue is due to ...
Avoid OPSM, bunch of scammers!
I'd rather buy a 200$ glasses and donate 350$ to charity instead of buying another OPSM glasses. It was downright awful as i was new to Australia and didn't know the general pricing of glasses.
DO NOT SHOP AT OPSM GLEN WAVERLEY MELBOURNE
If you don't have the patience to read the below story, the short version is: DO NOT SHOP AT OPSM GLEN WAVERLEY! The message is simple :)
My Tiffany frame just broke in half as I was wiping them clean in the morning, as it was my one and only pair, I rushed into the Glen Waverley store (where I originally purchased them from) straight away, hoping that they could help me out.
The sales lady at the shop asked: "What did you do to them?", I told her that the frame broke in half as I was wiping/cleaning the glasses. She told me that it was not...under warranty and my option would be purchasing a new frame. She told me the price of a new frame would be $440...I was quite disappointed that it wasn't under warranty and it just seemed really expensive to purchase a new frame at full price, she said she would offer me a "manager special" and gave me 10% off. I quickly looked up prices online and asked if she could price match because the same frame cost around $250-$300 from other online store, she bluntly said: no we do not price match. With doubts in my mind, I didn't proceed with her offer, I then drove to another OPSM store which was much closer to where I live, showed the store manager my broken glasses, he looked up my purchase history and told me that as I purchased them back in August 2018, my frame should still under warranty, he mentioned that it was up to the Glen Waverley's store manager's discretion if it should or should not under the warranty, but he believed that it should be according to what I told him. I told this store manager that I haven't had any positive experience with the Glen Waverley store since my first purchase back in 2018 (I've attached a photo of my complaint on facebook dated back to 2018). This store manager was really kind and offered me two options: to repair the frame by melting & glueing them back together for about $100 or to buy the exact new frame at $275 (and I will get 2 years warranty on the new frame). I chose to purchase a new frame. I spent over $1800 purchasing two pairs of glasses from Glen Waverley but over the years, they just kept on disappointing me by not only providing impatient and bad customer services but also trying to rip me off while the product could be replaced under warranty. Would I ever go back to OPSM at Glen Waverley ever again? You be the judge.

OPSM Customer Support
Just wondering how many times I can exchange frames I’ve exchanged twice but am still unhappy with the frames as they’re too narrow and hurt my head to the point of headaches
Please see below link to answer your query.
OPSM Customer Support
Hi. I have purchased two pairs of glasses and one pair is fine but I am not happy with the other pair and would like to exchange them. I would like to know the definition of date of purchase. Is it the date on which I ordered the glasses or is it the date on which I collected them?
Thank you for reaching out to us,
It is the date on which you collected.
Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
Customer Care Team
Thanks. I do have another question. I purchased two pairs and got the second pair for half price. The ones I want to return are the full price pair. I don't actually want a refund, I just want to swap them for a pair with a frame that fits me better. Is it possible to just do a swap or will there be some complicated adjustment of prices, so that I will still end up out of pocket?
Can you please provide your details and which OPSM store and we forward to the store who will reach out to you to discuss this further.
