- OPSM Online Store
Absolutely done after too many chances.
I've been (unfortunately) using OPSM online since lockdown began last year. I continued using the subscription service when I moved to an address not near any stores. Every single time that a new delivery came around (and I'm not exaggerating), something went wrong.
It would go to the wrong address even though it was correct on my file. It took six months at the end of last year to receive a refund for the order they sent to an incorrect address. SIX MONTHS.
They wouldn't provide tracking information, and then it would take days to receive a...response from the offshore service centre. I would have to repeat myself over and over every time a new representative responded to the emails. I would get nowhere and it would take days just to find out where my contact lenses actually were.
Great store at Mango Hill (Northlakes)
Great store at Mango Hill (Northlakes)! i got my new glasses from them. my first pair i got from their toowoomba store were terrible, this new pair, perfect. they were quick, and efficient, and treated me very well, helped me adjust my glasses to my face, and made sure i was seeing OK before leaving the store. happy customer.
Promotion offering 20% of contact lenses is a complete rip off. Even with the 20% discount they are more expensive than every other provider! They then try and entice you with a subscription discount (still more expensive than 90% of providers) but the discount is not applicable to this price. Another prime example of an Australian company ripping off its customers.
I've been with OPSM for a very long time and I recently for the very first time ordered my contact lens online (all these days I did over the store). When completing the order it suggested 3-5 business days but when checking your online store no status update, always reads 'progressing'. So made a phone call to find out and found that it is 7-10 business days and not 2-5 days. Very misleading. Moreover, the person over the phone was keen to cancel the order, with no consideration or acceptance of misleading info posted online.
Poor Online System and Lack of Interest in Optometry
I recently ordered contacts online. The online system will let you place an order and bill you without you entering all the details they claim to need. If you forget to enter the prescription date expiry say why not give an instant error like every other website so you can fix it there and then? OPSM happily let you finish the incorrect order, take your money and then don't supply the goods until you resolve the issue a couple of days later.
When the contacts arrived OPSM didn't bother to label which is left and right. OPSM is an optical health care provider, not amazon books.
Put these things together and you see where OPSM's priorities sit.
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!
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.
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...
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.
Could not order contacts on line as their website is always down and was told it could take more than 3 weeks to receive my contacts if i placed an order through my local store. In the meantime How am i suppose to see? Not Happy

Competitive prices with subscription but ultra unreliable with deliveries
1. Online checkout process is not clear with having to tick the check box confirming a valid
prescription for the contact lens order, that step is easily missed hence delay in dispatching order.
2. Most UNRELIABLE delivery service with TOLL with numerous times not leaving a card notifying that attempted deliveries were made so the item gets sent back to their depot. Link from OPSM confirmation email to track order only brings you to the main page of TOLL and not actual tracking information for the item provided. There were instances that th...
OPSM lied to me in order to get a sale
Before ordering my frames I called OPSM specifically to check whether their products were supplied locally - obviously with the Corona Virus and the delays that go with it, I didn't want to order a product from overseas at this time.
On April 1 I received a note from OPSM saying that the item had been shipped and I should have it in 2 - 6 business days.
8 days later when the item had not arrived, i called OPSM and confessed to me that the frames were being shipped from China.
Why is this not made clear during the checkout process that products are shipped from China?
Zero customer service
Worst customer service . Didn’t receive the contact lenses which placed 2 weeks ago. Called the customer service a few times for refund but to no avail . When I placed the order online , I clearly request leave the contact lenses at the mail box without signature . But toll left the card and ask me to collect at the toll depot which located an hour drive from my home . I was home all day when toll arrive , they didn’t check if someone home and just leave the card . Request to redeliver the the next day , initially the agreed but after that they said they miss the delivery . OPSM said will sort it out and call me back. It has been nearly a week, no communication from OPSM. Bad service .

Bad website as unable to order online, store only, no good for rural customers
Going on 2 years now and can't always make the 3 hour trip to town to order and pick up or wait for them to answer the phone in Mackay, as online system wont load me and in store can't help at all. Going back to Specsavers, streamlined, professional and better pricing. Specsavers you can order online once you have your prescription.
Didn’t recieve my contacts
Didn’t recieve my contacts, OPSM say it’s my fault and won’t give me my money back over $100. I’m new to the country and an awful first experience. Will never use them again!!
