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.

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!
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
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

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

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.
