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.
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!!
Worst customer service experience
I received an order notification email from OPSM yesterday which was placed by the system with autofill subscription plane. But the address in the order is incorrect as I have recently moved. Emailed the customer service but was told the order has been dispatched (but I haven’t received a dispatch email) so they can’t do anything about it. Rang the customer service and the lady from the customer service pretty much told me if I had contacted them earlier then they would have been able to help me (but I emailed on the same day I received the ord...er notification and rang the day after), she gave me the tracking number and told me I need to track down the order myself. I rang the carrier - Toll and their system happened to just been hacked last week and unable to help me too. Now I am left in limbo as no body can help me and I am getting charged for the goods that I will likely not able to received. I am in terrible distress all because of their autofill subscription “service”. They sell it like it’s meant to make their customers’ life easier but it seems like all they care about is the auto sales that involve and don’t seem to care about helping their customers!! Beware if you have an autofill subscription! Massive scam!
Customer care as useful as Mr Clippy in Microsoft Word
- Had an OPSM contact lens subscription.
- I wanted to delete an old address attached to my subscription. I already have a new address attached to my subscription. Their online account management interface did not allow me to delete the old address, telling me I need to remove it from my subscription which I obviously already have since I have been receiving my contacts to the new address since August.
- Sent an online enquiry asking why I can't do so and how to remove my old address.

NO Customer Service
Ordered 2 boxes contact lenses, the parcel has been shipped without any tracking information. I want keep an eye on it since I will be on vacation soon. Called the customer service twice but no one answer the phone. Left a voice message no one call me back. Sent emails twice and no response at all. Sadly, I should read online reviews before making purchase. Don't order from OPSM online and do not waste your time and frustrate yourself.
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 !!!
Don't use OPSM if you need to see
OPSM's customer service is appalling. I have their contact lens subscription. 2/3 order they have had "technical difficulties" which resulted in me 1. having to call multiple times to ask where my order was only to be met with a lack of answers from OPSMs end and blaming their IT team 2. Running out of contact lens which was avoidable because I had ordered with a 2 week grace period.
Should seeing being important to you, do NOT order contact lenses from OPSM.
After 14 business days, I again reached out to OPSM where I was told they had droppe...d the ball multiple times with escalating the issue to IT and could not guarantee when IT would be able to fix the problem. They recommended they cancel the order and I could reorder. No discount, no trial lenses, nothing-Nothing more than an "I'm sorry for this inconvenience". Safe to say, I did not reorder with OPSM and will be taking my business elsewhere.
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...

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
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.
