Do you know about the vision center of Walmart?
Walmart's optics lab
The Walmart Optics Lab is located just off the freeway ramp. The signs on the outside are small and the brick building looks relatively unremarkable, in stark contrast to the situation inside. The lab operates 24 hours a day, with more than 620 employees working in shifts. The lab's daily production record is 11,000 pairs of glasses.
Quality control of lenses
On the conveyor, the lens is shaped by a generator and a polisher to the right thickness and curve and then goes through several coating processes to get quality scratch resistance and anti-reflection. From there, the lens is placed into the frame by hand by the assembler. Quality control is in the whole process. If any problems are found, the process starts over. It takes about 8 hours from start to finish. Walmart is replacing all of its anti-reflector devices so that customers experience less glare. To improve quality and productivity, the lab replaced surfacing machines and edging machines so that it could produce more glass and serve more customers.
Professional optometry team
Both independent optometrists and optometrists employed by Walmart provide comprehensive eye exams to diagnose vision conditions and eye diseases. Every doctor hired or contracted by Walmart is licensed and is a fully certified optometrist and, in some cases, an ophthalmologist. Because health care laws vary from state to state, some doctors are hired by Walmart. However, most are independent optometrists who lease equipment, staff, and office space from Walmart.
Walmart Vision Center services
You can order glasses online at Walmart.com, and they'll be delivered as standard in about a week. You can select prescription glasses frames at Walmart.com, and it takes about three to seven days for Walmart Vision Center to complete an order for prescription glasses. Walmart Vision Provides eye care services, contact lenses, and prescription glasses. A fundamental eye exam starts at about $65, though prices vary by region. Although some of their doctors provide ancillary services, such as treating eye infections or diseases, their main purpose is to provide routine vision care.
