What a joke
Went into the local Warnbro store . Optometrist came out yelling and saying “no more customers” . Told by the lady at the counter best to just cancel you appointment . No chance to reschedule, just more time for me to leave the store . Left feedback online and still no response . Never going back again
Only for Rich people
I went to get my eye tested at Melbourne Central. The optometrist did check and x-ray of eyes which should be charged from Medicare. I was not even informed that it will cost $60 for eye x-ray and after the end of the eye test, the reception staff was like I owe $60. What a scam.
I wanted $0-$50 out-of-pocket as my Medibank covers $200. The cost of multifocal lenses with blue cover etc was $320 plus frame. Specsavers, oscar wylee and vision direct could offer two pair with similar things for under $100 out-of-pocket. Their lenses must be gold...
Went to OPSM Perth Mall today to collect glasses for myself and my husband. As soon as I tried mine on I could feel the left side was dropped and the arm on that side was well above my ear. I asked Travis to check it and he thought it was fine. He took them away to "adjust" them and came back - no change. Then he decided one of my eyebrows was higher than the other!! I asked the manager Brad if he thought they needed adjustment and he said "I wouldn't comment on a woman's eyebrows". FFS. Both men should be sacked.
My husband agreed they were s...
No lens replacement/repair available for Ray Ban Sunglasses
I purchased a pair of Ray Ban New Wayfarer Sunglasses on 30/11/2020 from the Bowral Branch. Unfortunately I dropped them last week and cracked one of the lenses. On returning to the store I was first asked if I had purchased insurance, which I had not. The store assistant then told me that OPSM stores did not offer replacement lenses, but he would try to help me out. In the end my only choice was to buy a new pair, or prescription lenses at double the price.
I was not informed of this at the time of purchase. This is surely unacceptable for a product with a rrp of over $200. Also OPSM and the manufacturers of Ray Ban apparently have the same parent company, Luxottica.
Wish I'd read the reviews here before making the appointment
Not very happy with the service I received today Frankston OPSM.
Had an eye test, went in expecting to update usual reading glasses, left made to feel as though I was blind as a bat.
Pressured into purchasing glasses with multifocal lenses - never had this before.
No explanation of how these worked from the sales assistant who served me.
I asked for my script wanting to get a second opinion elsewhere.
Meanwhile, I paid $60 for a retinal scan which I don’t think I needed and when I asked for it to be emailed was told wouldn’t be emailed today.
Good Service but Greedy organisation
I have been with OPSM for 15+year and we spend $1000 every year. Their glasses come in protective cases taht make them bulky and unpractical. In the old days OPSM would add value by providing a more useful $2 soft case or a cloth bag etc. Now days not the case, NO more freebies with your glasses like the old days. Great product and service and you pay the price, but stop being so frugal and Greedy OPSM, does everything always need to be about profit?
Their customer service is terrible.
I have been with OPSM for years and order my contact lenses through OPSM online. My recent purchase at 12 December hadn’t arrived yet, the first time they sent it to WA instead of NSW and they shipped it again but not arrived yet and no one answers my emails and when I call they forward me to toll services which seems have lost the track of my purchase. I’ve been out of my contacts for a while and no one seems caring about this in OPSM online. If you can’t trust your delivery service, you lose the trust of your customers!
Three months of severe headaches and SPAM
I went to get my yearly prescription glasses and I had my eye test as usual and got the results (It was a casual/replacement optition) I got my new glasses and a week or so later had headaches start, I never knew what was causing it. I got my prescription and work paid for safety glasses for me. After a few months of headaches I visited the doctors and then another optitian. It turns out I had totally the wrong prescription. Took it on the chin $$$ Now they spam me, click unsubscribe and they keep coming. type stop on the texts it says I am unsubscribed only to receive more. One customer who will never ever revisit.
Lack of genuine care and lying staff
I am leaving this review on a public forum after trying to bring this to OPSM's attention, but a lack of response from my initial email complaint from about a month ago shows that they simply do not care. I have tried calling their customer care number, but have been put on hold for a long time.
I called OPSM Balmain on the Sunday 29th of November to try and book an appointment for my elderly mum, who had a very irritated and sore eye. I work as a health professional, so I wanted my mother to see an optometrist as they are my colleagues. Mi...nd you, this day was when it was 40+ degrees in Sydney. Upon calling OPSM, I spoke to [name removed], and I tried to explain the situation to her. She told me they were fully booked, and to try somewhere else. I tried to see if she could be squeezed in and that we didn't mind waiting. I didn't want to take my mother to a hospital with COVID lingering, nor did I feel like it could wait until tomorrow. [name removed] refused for us to be booked in, again citing a full appointment book. She was not sympathetic towards my mother's eye, nor the circumstances of her having to travel to emergency department on a hot day and wait hours for her eye to be attended to. We ended up seeing another optometrist in the area, who was kind enough to squeeze us in. My mum had a very serious eye condition, and if we had waited any longer, she would have lost her vision. By chance, I was looking for appointments at other OPSM's on their website and I found that OPSM Balmain actually had bookings available that day at 2:30, 3:00 and 3:30pm. I have attached a photo as proof. The optometrist working that day was [name removed]. Now I was quite upset and shocked at this. To be certain that there was only 1 [name removed] working that day at OPSM, I called back OPSM Balmain at approximately 1pm, spoke to someone else (can't remember who), and they confirmed that they had appointments available in the afternoon, and that they hadn't been fully booked at all that day, and the optometrist working was [name removed].
Poor experience at OPSM Balmain
Extremely disappointing experience here with my family. We thought we would give OPSM a go; we normally go to a different optometrist in the area.
We won't be coming back. The optometrist we saw, [name removed] was extremely unprofessional.
very rude, lazy, staff, cant explain how they can be so not interested in their job. Today I went there, willing to spend, very likely $1000, but after that rude attitude, decided to walk out. With the excellent service at Costco, wondering what are they thinking. Rude, rude, rude!
The people there and the optometrist were very rude. Heard a couple of them talking behind our back.
None of the frames looked good, poor service, bad attitude and no patience was given. Was disappointed with the store.
cranbourne opsm bad service and wow

At Bondi junction.
Today while im in a consultation another member of staff was been pressured by another customer on two occasion she proceeded to bang on the door to hurry up. This is not very professional as my optometrist was testing my eyes. We were interrupted twice due to this. I felt that we were rushed. Later on when i was choosing my glasses the same member staff pressurizing me to hurry up and made decision on frames. Once again caused me more stress by her action.
How ever My husband was happy with the other member of staff. My husband had already paid for himself but for me i won’t be back due to this staff member. Her name is “ MIA”
Keep returning and still not the right prescription
I’ve had to return and they change the type of lense but I keep saying it’s the script. They do not listen. I have to pick up another glasses. I know they won’t be right because of the script.
Can't order prescription lenses for glasses online
This is mind-boggling. You can order frames from their website but you cant order prescription lenses with them. Beyond belief in 2020.
Wrong script - third family member - what’s going wrong
Three family members have had their eyes tested and their glasses are wrong scripts. My dads glasses had two different lenses in one pair. My other half’s new glasses are supposed to be stronger yet he can’t see distance with new script but can with old glasses with so called less strength. My sister had to go back three times and still here are wrong. Some staff don’t adjust or clean new glasses just say they are correct
- OPSM Retail Stores
Attended Perth store, explained i had to keep within a budget, after test was shown many options, all out of my budget, explained this to consultant who seemed very annoyed i was taking script to specsavers for a quote. Specsavers measured and quoted $600 cheaper and was in budget, when i picked up specs two weeks later lenses were out of focus, after much puzzlement they retested to find correct axis should be 86, OPSM script clearly stated 8!! Specsavers were good enough to remake specs to the correct axis (86)
The most worry thing is went ...
This has been the worst customer experiences I've had to date.
Bought a pair of Raybans online over lockdown. It arrived, the style didn't suit me so I took it into the local shop hoping to swap with another style. No manager on duty so couldn't do the swap nor could I leave the item - complete waste of an afternoon. I was told to come back the following weekend and so I did, only to leave with the package again saying I needed to return it back to the online warehouse - another waste of time.
I found the prepaid returns slip, stuck it on an e...
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.
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...
