Zero Stars! Worst glasses experience ever!
I went into this Cohen's becausethey boast "all vision plans accepted." I should have stayed home and went to a real eye doctor or even lens crafters, hell even a small botique place would been cheaper. The doctor who did the eye exam was very professional, she is the only bright spot in the whole operation. First off I was told that if I wanted to use my insurance, I'd have to get the whole package done there, not true they are required by law to give you your prescription after the eye exam. Secondly when I did decide to get frames there I was only show over priced non designer frames. At one point they were trying to convince me that I needed to get modern frames, by the way the frames that they wanted me to get were Buddy Holly style. Retro yes, Modern no. I almost got strong armed into these bobo no name frame package until I found out it would have cost over $600 dollars. When I said I didnt want the frames I was then shown "cheaper frames."

These were in the form of Dockers which I ended up taking, but when I paid for them they didnt give me an itemized bill. I had to request this when I came back to get the glasses. One would think eyeglasses costing $408 would warrant an itemized bill? I thought this price was a little high but I was in a bind I needed glasses for an important work related event. I had the glasses a few days and they made me dizzy as the prescription was too high. Luckily the eye doctor lowered the prescription, no problem.
After getting the itemized bill I thought $209 dollars for Dockers frames was kind of high. I could understand for perhaps DKNY or something. So I decided to look around and found several places with the same frames retailing for $136. I called the store to inquire about the huge markup up and after the manger continuously cut me off and accused the other retailers of immoral business practices, she hung up on me and then didnt pick up the phone after I called back! Shame on you Allison.
