Not recommended!! Do not buy Oakley
I have had major issues tying to get replacement prescription lenses for my Oakley sunglasses. It turns out that after visiting my local store and contacting their customer services that if OPSM no longer stock the frames they are unable to order replacement lenses. Not much help when your prescription has changed! Very poor customer service indeed especially when the glasses purchased were over $650 and the frames are in excellent condition. What should I do; buy a new pair and throw the old ones in the bin? Talk about environmental pollution ...and unnecessary landfill. I would not recommend using OPSM for this reason and will in future I will be going elsewhere. Furthermore Oakley have provided little assistance when trying to resolve the issue.

My mum recently ordered prescription glasses at opsn Marion store. She paid a deposit. Went in to pick them up and the store lady broke her glasses adjusting the frames to fit! So she was told they would order more. After waiting, my mum went in and it happened again. So again she waited and come in and once again they broke the glasses, this time however the store person went out back, pretended to fix them and presented my mum with the display glasses. My mum refused and once again had to wait. Next day, called in and the store peop...le just boxed up the display glasses and sold them to her! Included with the glasses, were non prescription replacement lenses all in a damaged box. She waited patiently. Paid full price, no health insurance cover and was blatantly lied to and disrespected. I am disgusted at how she has been treated.
Good choice of product but terrible customer service
I decided to give OPSM a go after many years of dealing with another major retailer as OPSM offer higher end brand glasses. Happy with my glasses however the customer service was awful. For the huge price the glasses cost me, I won't be going back again. Treated like rubbish, staff have no interest in their customers.
Excellent customer service
We had the most excellent service at OPSM Belmont, Vanessa, Aaron and staff so knowledgeable and helpful, very happy with our new glasses, thank you
Prescription Sunglasses coating failed within two years. OPSM would not initially acknowledge Australian Consumer Law. Stuck to their limited period. Would not accept defective product manifested within ACL period. Said glasses had been subject to excessive heat. Not true. Only cleaned with OPSM product, never left in hot car or elsewhere. Hardly worn as my clear glasses bought same date have Transition lenses which are mostly used. Offer of 20% off replacement lenses cost of $880, then 50%, then when (seriously) threatened with Consumer Law ac...tion agreed to replace free. My eye script had changed from +2.20 to +2.25. Refused to make new lenses to current although probably cost no more. I have been customer (Westfield Chatswood branch) for about 20 years. With family have spent around $20,000. This is second such incident. First, bridge broken. OPSM said could not fix because of change from one to two screw fittings and no single ones anywhere available. Only option new glasses. So much for support. Trust lost. Customer lost. .
Terrible service and overall experience
OPSM made a mistake with order, failed to communicate, tried to hike up cost due to their mistake and had overall terrible service and poor communication about the order, WOULDN'T RECOMMEND
Side note attended different store and will had poor service
Bad Customer Service
Waited 30mins in store whilst consultant was serving another person in store. Optometrist came out with a customer and asked consultant to help him choose glasses and we were not acknowledged at all or asked if we needed help! Very poor customer service.
Both my Indian friend and I (Chinese) were looking to get new glasses.
As a previously "royal" customer (only have glasses from OPSM), I recommended walking into the OPSM shop in Tea Tree Plaza, SA, to have a look at what frames are out. So we were in the shop, Feb 2021, spent about 15mins trying frames from one to another.
My Indian mate went "it is strange, they have 3 staff standing chatting with themselves, no other customers in the shop, why didn't they come and greet us?"
I tried to easy him: "Don't over-interpret it, maybe this is how ...
Worst customer experience I've ever had
Had been a long-standing OPSM customer but was recently treated very poorly in the Southland (VIC) retail store that resulted in me having to travel interstate without my contact lenses. The attitude and service level was the worst I have ever experienced. IT systems and record keeping appear to be very poor. Avoid at all costs!
I purchased Valentino in Rundle Mall the service was first class from Marc, Charlie and the team and I love my new glasses !
Looking forward to my next visit !
Customer service was excellent. Product was terrible
Great service and friendly staff.
My first time in 30 years of wearing glasses I had to buy plastic lenses since they no longer make glass.
The new plastic lenses have lasted me Just over 1year and they need replacing.
I have never had a set of lenses last less than 3years before.
For people who don't work in an office environment, I would not recommend plastic lenses. There are still some places that sell glass. It's cheaper in the long term.
Third time lucky
Had eye test , picked frames
1 being readers
1 being every day wearing
After 2 weeks go in for fitting , my every day wear of glasses has the wrong script
Wait another 1 1/2 weeks pick glasses up , they have a defect in the glass.
The store assistant ( Mary) tells me third time lucky, apologies things happen?
Just spent $1000 dollars on a very disappointing experience , and a very crude response by the staff.
Definitely would not recommend as a lack of training and professionalism by OPSM
Not very happy...
Got 2 pairs of glasses from the South Morang, Vic store and got talked into their new ‘digital’ Varilux lenses which are very expensive and supposed to be the best of the best. Turns out they aren’t - not for me anyway. A very small in-focus area in the middle of the lens with the rest being just slightly out-of-focus. This is not too bad when stationary but makes for a very disorienting and annoying experience when walking around. The staff were good and tried to fix the problem but to no avail. These lenses are marketed as being the ultimate ...in lens technology but they definitely aren’t in my opinion. If I had my time again I would have stuck with the old style lenses I’ve always had and which have been perfectly fine. Beware when buying these lenses!
Wonderful, knowledgeable staff at every point. Never tried to up sell me, in fact they said I didn’t really an option that I was considering so thanks for the honesty. Great with my 11 year old, had a broken leg at the time so brought a chair over for her and even adjusted the height to suit. Explained everything and answered all my questions. Gave me different cost options and what worked better with my private health. Over and above.
Poor Customer Support
I came into Sydney store because of extensive range of frames. I chose new frames without assistance, had a script from my optometrist. I specifically asked if I paid & ordered frames could they be sent to another local store for collection. After almost an hour, I paid and left. Five days later I received phone call my glasses had arrived. I informed the sales person that the notes were to send to another store for collection. This could not be done as the original sales person had not processed my BUPA details even though I had given him the ...card. After complaining to head office & assistant store manager I was told BUPA does not do prepayments! Rubbish! It is OPSM that does not accept BUPA prepayments so I would have to go back into the Sydney store. I have a copy of the receipt with the notes! Lied twice just to make a sale. Cancelled the glasses. Are BUPA customers discriminated against by OPSM? AND I paid in cash and still waiting for my refund!
OPSM Bullcreek, WA: Just one staff to attend to all customer needs including fitting frames, billing, answering the phone, handle walk-in inquiries etc. I had to wait more than 30 minutes after my eye test to talk to her. Went to collect my glasses around 1.20 pm on a Friday and the store was closed as the only staff member has gone for lunch. I had to wait for 20 minutes. I feel sorry for the poor, overworked staff member, she was amazing.
If I could rate zero stars I would!
From the start this was a poor experience but after trying to get past that in order to get the glasses I liked - I still ended up with a completely terrible experience. Sadly it was every aspect. I had 4 different quotes. Was abused my one store. Went to another to to wait over a month for my glasses. Paid for high index lenses and got coke bottles - they said that is how day and make them... sent them back - put actual hi index lenses in them. Had to chase every week for an actual response. Then was told that I was the painful customer and th...ey didn’t appreciate me being upset with the delay. Still not right and they wouldn’t let me collect them without paying more money. And they didn’t fit them properly. Yet they are literally double the price of the other optometrist for the same thing. Sadly I thought I was receiving a better product but really I was just overpaying. Esp for zero customer service. Never again. Be warned
Once they grab your money THEY DON'T CARE!
I was tested and prescribed 2 plastic lenses for my own frames.The price was $880. After waiting over a month, I tried them on, and I mentioned that I could not see clearly at a distance. They replied that I "needed to get used to them". I could also see strange blue halos around straight lines. I wore them for over 2.5 weeks, and nothing changed. I returned to speak to optometrist. He tried to tell me that my eyes had changed and it was not his fault. All he could offer me another pair of lenses at half price.
This was the 1st time I had tried OPSM and I will never use them again.
Rang the Customer Service line & was told the regional manger will contact me in 2 days & yet have not received a call.
They will not return scratched lenses that I believe were not scratched by me that are only two weeks old.
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

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.
Good Morning Kim

We will pass your feedback on and also follow up on when the central data base will be accessible again for our stores.

Is the price of bluegard lenses ( prescription 1.49) differ in each and every retail stores of OPSM?
Hi there! Thanks so much for reaching out to us :)
No, the price of lenses is standard across all our stores. Any difference in a quoted price is most likely related to whether the team member has quoted the traditional lens option or a digital lens option. With a traditional lens design, your unaltered prescription is ground across the entire lens. A digital lens uses newer technology to slightly alter the prescription around the edge of the lens using specific measurements that take into account the distance between your eye and the furthest point of the lens to improve your peripheral vision. If the team member has given you a quick-quote with this lens option there will be a $50 difference in price, but the choice is yours of course :)
I'm so sorry for any confusion or miscommunication. Please feel free to get back in touch if I can help you further!
