Rude customer service and deceiving staff
Purchased a $660 dollars worth one eyeglasses but gave us a plastic lenses which has never been explained prior to purchase. Rodvina , customer staff from Bourke st branch was so rude dealing with us today. Had to pay extra $100 dollars to get the right lense we want.
Beware customer dealing with Bourke st branch.
At first the ordering seemed straight forward, the tracking didn’t work but the package arrived, so I didn’t really worry about it. But unfortunately the first lenses I ordered with them didn’t last the 3 months I paid $160 for. The lenses that were apparently specially made for my eye contour fell out within days. I blamed myself for this, maybe I rubbed my eye too hard? Maybe my contacts were dry. So I ordered again, and this traumatic nightmare of an experience begun with OPSM.
1. A week after I ordered I received an email stating my order i...
0% Customer Service
Been in the Werribee Plaza Hoppers Crossing store twice in the last 2 weeks to look at new frames. First time it was minimum 10mins before anyone acknowledged me even with no other customers in store and when they did approach me they sounded like they couldn't be bothered. Didnt think much just thinking end of day tired or drained which is understandable. Went in today to actually purchase frames again no other customers in store and the same again this time i was quite annoyed. Walked out really frustrated. I even tried to make eye contact to no avail. Never too step foot back in there again.

Don't order online!!!!
Never order online. Stupidly I have multiple time and they keep stuffing up delivery address. invoice address correct yet it's delivered to the wrong address. blaming me or toll everytime
Worst customer service
spent 10 minutes by myself there and they barely tried to help me! Just because I’m a young girl. They probably don’t care at all. Too bad, just lost a customer
Would not use, company's service is poor
Service was very avg, then the smses started. Sent stop as described, still kept coming, cust service unhelpful and wanted me to reidentify, DOB, full name, etc, all to get them to stop harassing with smses trying to sell their products
Worst online experience ever.
Worst online experience I’ve ever had. Terrible customer service, automated subscription started again after I cancelled it. Yet they kept telling me I did it. Saw order automatically placed at midnight, emailed them at 1230pm yet three days later they sent package and charged me. package sent back, still no refund. Service emails rude, no one took responsibility. NEVER use this online service
Traumatised, completely cheated, additional secret costs, bumped price when I looked away, lied about order time
I lost 3 traumatising hours in-store.
The staff member promised me a specified delivery period for the specific glasses I chose, and that was my condition to her - I will not buy unless it's that because I am moving overseas. First hour of consult - she gives me a bill and it is $400 more than expected. I spend the hour arguing with her why there are random extras like computer blue light cut on my DRIVING-ONLY SUNGLASSES, random unexplained costs like a custom-entered 'rimless fee' on top of an already rimless frame (that's like charging for...a banana and then EXTRA for the skin ALREADY on it!!!), a discrepancy between what my health fund gap left to pay is and the extra she is billing me, her quoting a lower price before my health card was swiped and then BUMPING UP THE PRICE AS I'M ABOUT TO PAY THE REMAINDER!!! I demanded to see what she inputted, and in the computer I saw all the numbers she fudged to slim some sweet additional commission off of me. She manually adjusted just the total pricing as if no one would notice!!! I caught her out because the itemised list of costs was lower than the total bill price!!!! She said, the computer must've done that! So, I'M supposed to pay extra??? It was also at this point that I went, 'wait, what are all these additional things anyways?' and she started the sales spiel on lens upgrades, etc. I said, show me the catalogue. I saw they are all OPTIONAL EXTRAS. I said, 'why are these EXTRAS in there that I never approved pr was even explained??' She goes, 'the computer puts them in' and I go 'show me'. She freaked and couldnt prove it because in the screen, it actually pops up to SELECT extras as an option. She changes her story. "It's our standard practice to add these things in, I didn't intentionally try to cheat you." Are you serious??? Either way, with all her manual fake charges in there cheating me, I demamd everything be refunded and we start over. This is where I lose another FULL HOUR! On a refund!!! She did everything she could to stall it, even claimed the system won't work, and at one point she calculated just the item costs (excluding the extra sneaked in costs charged on top) and tried to 'show me' that the refund will be only those base costs!!!! Aka, she tried to refuse to refund her snuck-in part of the money!! It took an hour to tell her 'give me back what you CHARGED MY CARD, not the base price of the items'. She kept stalling and stalling, so I said directly 'is there something preventing you from putting the refund through the eftpos machine as is standard practice?' She was cornered, said 'no, I just wanted to show you what'd you'd get back' and finally refunded me when I said 'I would get back what was charged as per the receipt'. You can't crawl out of that one. What happened next was equally as horrible. She tried to avoid giving me the actual prescription of the eye test done directly before this whole ordeal even started. This wasted more time and I had already missed a meeting at work, lost 2 hours up to this point and my time was running out to get glasses in time. I asked her to redo the order in front of me, with MY CONSENT for what extras I CHOOSE MYSELF and ACTUALLY NEED in eyewear that I WILL BE THE ONE WEARING. At the final screen of the order on her computer, I wrote down the cost shown which she read off to me for confirmation. As I went through my own checklist, she started to 'prepare' the transaction. She went to scan my health insurance card, taking a long while. Afterwards, I look up and the total had gone up by $10!!! HOW DESPERATE DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO PULL THE SAME THING TWICE?? I had the original total written down in front of her! She 'couldn't explain it and kept telling me 'look it all adds up on screen'. DUH it adds up since you bumped the price! God this was awful, but by this point I'd lost another whole hour! 3 hours gone! I paid just to get the hell out of there - the time investment was shocking.... and yet there was more to go. The 2 pairs I got each have a different use, and therefore need different adjustments/strengths so I confirmed that she entered that correctly which she gave a very vague answer to. All confidence and trust destroyed, I requested a full printout of the order with sphere details and everything else included. She refused. I asked whether the two pairs were specifically adjusted corretly in the order, and her response was, "It's whatever the optometrist put in." YES BUT ONE PAIR NEEDS MANUAL ADJUSTMENT FOR THE SPECIFIC USE IT WILL HAVE. She 'could not confirm' what it is but that it's 'correct.'
Don't waste your time going to OPSM Hoppers Crossing in the Werribee Plaza. They are hopeless. Specsavers in the same complex however are great. They have great service and prices and use the latest technology for a comprehensive eye test . And no, I don't have any vested interest, just going from my experience.
Visited for eye check yesterday. After testing I was informed I needed to pay $49 for an additional contact lens fitting. I asked for the script but was told I needed to try different scripts to get the right lens. She stated she only had the glasses script. I have never had this answer before and felt it was money grabbing to get me to buy lenses from them. OPSM price is double what I can pay on line. Then I asked if glaucoma test was ok. She told me l need to pay for this test but had told me earlier my pressure was on the high side of normal. This is rubbish OPSM. An eye test should include the Glaucoma test like at other places. Very disappointed at the money grabbing attitude/policies of OPSM.
No issues with the contact lenses but OPSM’s customer service is shocking, they took no responsibility for ensuring the product reached me. The first order I placed took two weeks to be delivered due to their logistics provide being mysterious unable to deliver to a CBD apartment building with 24 hour concierge. I gave them another chance as I reasoned it could have just been a bad experience with the logistics provider. However I experienced the same issues with my second order; when I contacted OPSM they took no responsibility and really didn...’t seem to care if I got the package. After three weeks without delivery (they stated 2 working days for delivery) I requested a refund. They granted the refund but 10 days later I’m still waiting for the refund to be processed and no one will respond. With many other providers to purchase contact lenses from don’t put up with OPSM’s shocking service.
Made in China
Ordered and paid top dollar for multi-focals, only to be told there will be a delay because lenses come from China and currently trade borders are closed between them and America. Why not made in Australia considering the cost?
Knox City Service!
I came in to the Knox City OPSM tonight 25th April to collect a pair of prescription lenses and frames around 7pm and I have walked away upset and extremely disappointed.
When i was shown the glasses made for me i noticed i had not received what i asked for. The frame design I asked for had bent arms on the display model. I was re assured many times that on the pair being made for me the arms would be straight as i had requested as i don't find the curved comfortable. The sales member who organised this for me a week ago reassured me many time...s they came stock standard as straight and the reason the ones on display were curved was from customers playing with them and damaging them over time. the pair i received were curved. Secondly my prescription was incorrect, I couldn't see anything clearly out of them beyond 30cm. i had requested lenses i could use for driving at night and sitting at a computer to sharpen the image and also stop my eyes becoming tired quickly in both cases. i specifically had an "anti glare" for driving and a "blue light filter" for the computer screen applied as suggested by the sales member who i originally saw. when the first staff member i saw tonight realised there was an issue I was passed onto a "senior staff member" to handle the problem. I'm sorry to say, this lady was completely uninterested, very blunt and flat. For a staff member who is working double pay on Anzac Day and starting at 1pm six hours earlier I would expect much brighter customer service than what I received. her eyes were bright red and she looked and acted like she hadn't slept. She bluntly told me told that the prescription was only for reading glasses, though i had requested from the sales member a pair combined for driving and the computer and was going totally from the information the sales member had given me. The way i was treated by the senior staff member tonight in attempting to fix these small issues was incredibly unhelpful and a little offensive. I tried to explain to her what the sales member told me and the points she had sold me on and the things i had requested and the responses i got from her were incredibly patronising and uncaring. The look of disgust on her face throughout did nothing to help the experience. even a single "sorry we stuffed up and wasted an hour of your life" or "sorry you've misunderstood how lenses work" would have helped but all i received was patronising rudeness and a throwaway "just come back another day" as though i have all the time in the world to drive around.
No script in my glasses.
I am furious. I had my eyes tested a few years ago which resulted in needing “reading” glasses. I have an issue with focusing and getting headaches from reading. I was still getting these bad headaches even after I had my glasses and looked into other possible issue. 3 years later I get my eyes checked at specsavers and they ask for the old pair of glasses, i am then told, that one side has no script and the other had the tiniest bit that wouldn’t make a difference. Why was I sold glasses with no script? Disgusting seeing as they cost around $300. I will never go back here or recommend to anyone.
This is a review about OPSM online only
I ordered and paid $200 online for contact lenses on 28 March. I got an email saying the order would be “delivered within 4 to 6 business days”. There was no confirmation of the order having shipped a few days later, so I contacted OPSM to ask about the lenses. I was told they are not available. I don’t think I would have been told that had I not followed up. I also didn’t think it was okay for companies to cancel your order after you’ve paid - surely payment means we’ve entered into a contract.
Anyway, so I ordered more lenses (the ones I usua...
Delivery takes forever!!!!
Ordered contact lenses on the 20th and its still processing. Website say 3-7 working days. It's been a week and I badly need new ones. OPSM should clarify if its 3-7 processing days + delivery time or what... Also, the first time I ordered same thing happened except the lenses were defective. Had to send it back then re order again. Not happy at all.
Replacement glasses get easily scratched
I bought a pair of glasses long time ago (almost 2 years) and included insurance because they were really expensive, I can't complain about my first pair, quite hard to scratch, almost 2 years and no complains, I had an accident while on the bike and a car run over the glasses,obviously, they got damaged, but still the lenses were not that badly scratched as expected, I shared the story with my colleagues and showed how tough these glasses were. The replacement was covered by the insurance last January, at this time, not even 2 and a half mont...hs after, the replacement glasses are getting easily scratched, I wear them all day long, I only take them off at bed time and place them in a case and use microfiber to clean them, I'm a programmer so I really need them and take care of them. I have noticed that on my receipts the descriptions are different, the receipt from my first purchase said: Polycarb SV ANTI FATIGUE WHITE CRIZAL PREVENCIA And the replacement says: Polycarb SV ACTIV BOOST DIGITAL
Awful delivery experience, never again.
Unfortunately the prices OPSM offer for contact lenses are very competitive and reasonable. However after 3 chances and having incredibly awful delivery experiences with their choice of courier Toll Priority, I won't be placing an order with OPSM ever again.
OPSM Spearwood Pure Garbage
OPSM Store Spearwood!!! Do not go there!!! Worst customer service and such a liars!!! Promised my mum to fix sunglasses and never did!!! Do not ever go there if could Give it 0 Stars i gladly would !!!
OPSM Wont give me the contact lenses I wear, but I can order them online and just did
I wear Biofinity Contact lenses which are great. I ran out. I called OPSM who made me glasses in 2014 (for $600!) to get some. I have the prescription.
I told them I have the details for the contact lenses I need and have repeat ordered them everywhere. But No, apparently all kinds of reasons why I cant have them. The measurements are special (but all the online places have no problem) I need a new prescription, they arent on the shelf, they haven't seen me since 2014.
A polite lady evaded every attempt I made to get a box. UNLESS I mad...e an appointment for an eye test etc. Is that bulk billed? Is OPSM trying to get a quick buck from an unnecessary service? So I go online and order a box Express Post for delivery to me tomorrow. No eye test. Perfect vision. OPSM lose.
So much more expensive than anywhere else
More than double the price of competitors but you don’t get double the value. Won’t be going back. For some reason you also get less back on your health fund as well.
OPSM Hurstville- don't bother!
I was in the Hurstville store a few weeks ago, where there was 1 staff member on the floor serving another customer and 1 staff member on a computer, doing what looked like paperwork. I stayed in the store for 15 minutes, waiting for someone to assist me. On the 15th minute, I started to walk out when the staff member on the computer called out to me, asking what I wanted in a rude and dismissive tone, like I was inconveniencing him. That was enough for me to say goodbye and walked out. I then drove 20 minutes to the Miranda store where I was p...romptly greeted by a friendly and helpful staff member, who went out of her way to assist me. Given the price premium you pay to shop at OPSM, the Hurstville store was disappointing and the Miranda store was top notch.
Horrible choice of courier, no standards of customer service at all
Their choice of courier, Toll, is possibly the WORST courier in Australia. Despite having reception in my building, they have "attempted delivery" twice now and "failed". I have not had any delivery issues with other couriers like AusPost or StarTrack, and the only other option Toll has is for you to pick up the parcel yourself at their depot at Brisbane Airport. Ridiculous. I ran into the same delivery problem with Toll even at my old address, when someone was home. Contacted OPSM for help but gotten no help or response at all from them.
Never making another order with OPSM ever again if they can't fix their customer service team and delivery issues.
I can't seem to get off any list
I had a poor experience with OPSM and decided never to go back. And despite this no matter how many times I've tried to get off mailing list, emailing list and sms list I still keep getting contacted. It's pretty irritating
Don't go there
I cannot live without my glasses and when I came to the shop after 1 year because the coating came off, I had the rudest response possible. Won't come back.
March 17th 2019 Update: Waiting for call as promised rate 0
Still waiting for your phone call. Please can you let the OPSM shop at Seaford know that I do not want anymore reminders and so does not want my husband
