Third time lucky
Had eye test , picked frames
1 being readers
1 being every day wearing
After 2 weeks go in for fitting , my every day wear of glasses has the wrong script
Wait another 1 1/2 weeks pick glasses up , they have a defect in the glass.
The store assistant ( Mary) tells me third time lucky, apologies things happen?
Just spent $1000 dollars on a very disappointing experience , and a very crude response by the staff.
Definitely would not recommend as a lack of training and professionalism by OPSM
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.
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.
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.
Complaint lodged 6 weeks ago. Still waiting for refund.
An error was made by sales person in store on a refund who refunded the full purchase price to me instead of taking off the Health Fund portion. They then deducted the Heath Fund portion from my account. The ETA to have the Heath Fund reimbursed? Up to 6 weeks! Yes, so I am unable to buy glasses until the Health Fund is reimbursed, which naturally went to Head Office. I called OPSM to insist that it was unacceptable. I was then called by a State Manager who basically said they are dealing with a third party and nothing can be done, but they wil...l try to speed it up to a 3 week turnaround. Well, today is week 6. Called again. They had no record of my complaint and referred me to the store (why??!) or the State Mgr again!! I am fully expecting Covid-19 to be an excuse which does not wash as this complaint was lodged 6 weeks ago! I am wearing glasses from the chemist. Can't even begin to describe my frustration with the handling of this. Never again!

If I could give them no stars I would
After many years o f seeing the one optometrist I decided to see someone closer and decided upon OPSM. The eye test itself was good. Then can choosing the frames the woman had no idea. I get charged over $700 for a pair of glasses that are useless. They are the wrong fit and I can't see out of them. I told them I was going overseas until May and i needed them to be perfect. All they care about it the cash! This morning I received an email they have a 30 day money back policy knowing full well I'm overseas and cannot get there till May. Well don...e OPSM! You have scammed me knowing I am overseas and you get to keep my money and I have to go and spend another small fortune on a pair of glasses. Do not to OPSM in Doncaster. They are useless and all they care about is revenue. I will ensure that i give poor reviews every opportunity I get!
Worst customer service and online experience
Ordered contact lenses from Opsm a few times online , every time have had issues with their ordering from wrong lenses being sent , charging my credit card twice for one order , receiving stock that expires in a short time frame . Customer service a rude and d not want to correct any issues as that would require them loosing money !!!
Terrible and misleading service. High prices.
Last year I went to opsm to get prescription lenses for 2 pairs of sunglasses. One pair was a gift and were the wrong size so needed to exchange them. At the first opsm I was told that they needed to be exchanged at the same store they were purchased from. (This turned out to be untrue - the person at the first opsm just didn't want to process the refund). Then at the second store I was told that they could only be refunded to the same person who purchased them. Despite me having the receipt. So eventually when I lined up the correct person to...refund them with. Then when I went to purchase the lenses I was told that because it was close to the new year they come of spread the two transactions over the two years so I could claim the health fund in seperate years. Which sounded great but when I went to pick them up, they told me that they didn't know why I was told that because they definitely can't. It was the same person telling me this. I ended up purchasing lenses from them but won't be buying anything from there again because in addition to the terrible misleading service they charge a fortune for lenses.
Mis diagnosis and charged twice
After getting an eye test and glasses, headaches and blurred vision developed.
Visited an ophthalmologist and was referred back to opsm and news lenses installed.
Referred the issue to the consultant, store management and head office without any acknowledgement or financial relief.i nor my family or friend will use opsm again
Inefficient/Bad Customer Service/ Zero Care Factor/Poor Communication
As mentioned - Mornington OPSM Store Staff are:
Have Bad Customer Setvice,
Have a Zero Care-Factor,
And have Very Poor Communication Skills!
Even when they sent my glasses on to me, as I was travelling, they didn’t have enough foresight to keep the Tracking Number!!!
IS THIS NOT THE 21st CENTURY?

I supplied OPSM with my contact details on 17/3/2021. Have not heard from them which suggests their expression of concern/interest was for show only
We can see that we contacted you via email and your response was the below "I do not think you can be of any assistance to me. I have made my decision to avoid OPSM in future. "
Due to this response your feedback was not lodged further to management as we respected your decision stated in the email. However if you have changed your mind now, please let us know and we will get management to contact you to discuss. Reference number is #249413

Hi I have just done my eye test in store and ordered my glasses on Tuesday on the receipt it says glasses expected to be in 18th to the 20th of March that is a very long wait just wanting to know is there a possibility of them coming sooner or will they be ready for collection between the dates on the receipt as I'm really needing my glasses
Yes it will be between that time frame, usually 7-10 business days or can take longer if script is more tricky.

Can you tell me why my history of purchases at opsm stores is not available to all stores? With COVID it is not as easy to visit previous stores. I was told yesterday that it could not be looked up.
Good Morning Kim
